AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Review Leaks Out: Crushes Intel’s Core i5-8250U, 50 FPS in GTA V and CS: GO

AMD’s Ryzen 4000 “Renoir” Mobile processors are just around the corner. Based on the 7nm Zen 2 architecture and improved Vega graphics, they promise cheaper than ever mobility performance that’s neck to neck with Intel’s new Ice Lake parts. Recently, we saw the Ryzen 3 4300U perform on par with the Intel Whiskey Lake chip, the Core i7-8550U. Today, an entire review from a Russian outlet has surfaced that includes the performance overview of the new Ryzen mobile chips across a wide range of applications including content creation and gaming benchmarks. Let’s have a look:

This is a very decent score. In comparison, the Intel Core i5-8250U scores a paltry 2,862 points in Geekbench 5 and less than 1,200 in Cinebench R20. That’s a near 50% performance benefit over the Intel counterpart. Keep in mind that the Ryzen 4000 mobile APUs will mostly be competing with the older 8th Gen Intel mobile chips, as the 10th Gen parts are still quite limited in volume.

AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Gaming Performance: 50 FPS in GTA V at 1080p

In popular titles like Grand Theft Auto V and Counter-Strike: GO, the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U scores an impressive 50 FPS average at 1080p. Please keep in mind that this is a 15W mobile processor, not a gaming laptop so this is quite incredible really.

In more recent titles like Battlefield V, Far Cry 4 and Assassins’ Creed Odyssey, the Vega GPU on the Ryzen 5 runs at a still-impressive 30-40FPS at 720p. You can read the original post, here. It’s in Russian, however.
