We’ve been covering preliminary performance benchmarks of the next-gen Intel and AMD CPUs for a while now. In this post, we’ll be comparing three H series processors, the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H, the Ryzen 7 4800HS and the Intel Core i7-10750H. These chips represent the high-end processors that will be used in upcoming laptops, starting late March. As such, this gives us a good idea of what to expect from the next wave of gaming laptops:
In line with yesterday’s benchmark, the Ryzen 5 4600H is on par with the Intel Core i7-10750H. Both CPUs have the same core counts but the latter has a much higher boost clock. Despite that, the two chips perform nearly the same. This is just a testament to how much AMD’s IPC has improved over the last years with Zen 2.
While in the TimeSpy CPU test, the 4600H is slightly slower than the 10750H, the Renoir chip manages to overpower it in the FireStrike Extreme benchmark. The higher-end Ryzen 7 4800HS is a hefty 20% and 30% faster in FS and TimeSpy, respectively.
This is pretty damning for Intel. It’ll be interesting to see if the same gains are maintained for AMD in gaming and other everyday workloads. While I expect the deltas to be minimal in most “real-world” benchmarks, this will be the first time AMD will have an advantage or at the very least offer similar performance for better prices in the mobility space.
