AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 7000 mobile processors are picking up the slack left by their desktop counterparts. The Ryzen 7045HX “Dragon Range” chips offer desktop-level performance, beating their Intel Raptor Lake-HX rivals in every segment. The Ryzen 7040U “Phoenix Point” lineup focuses more on efficiency, targeting ultra-thins and convertibles.

In Geekbench 5, the Ryzen 5 7640U is a whopping 60% faster than its predecessor, the Ryzen 5 6600U, in multi-threaded workloads. There’s a small deficit compared to the Core i5-1340p, but the Intel chip has inferior single-threaded performance. Furthermore, there’s a lot to be desired in the efficiency department.
Moving to single-threaded performance, the Ryzen 5 7640U is faster than everything on the block. It’s about 15% faster than both the Ryzen 5 6600U and the Core i5-1340p. In the end, lightly threaded performance matters more in ultrathin/convertibles and the 7650U rules here.
