AMD is expected to announce its 7nm Zen 2 based Ryzen 4000 notebook CPUs at CES later this month. We’ve already seen the 3DMark Score of the Ryzen 7 4700U. Check that here. The 4700U will be featured in the ultra-low-power notebooks and compete with the likes of the 10th Gen Comet Lake-U and Ice Lake-U offerings from Intel. Today’s leak (From TUM_APISAK on Twitter) introduces the Ryzen 7 4800H.
This will succeed the Ryzen 7 3750H and power the next-generation of gaming notebooks, going head-to-head against the Intel Core i5-9300H and the i7-9750H. The present Picasso mobile offerings (R5 3550H and the R7 3750H) fall short in gaming and other single-threaded workloads. Consequently, they fail to provide the same level of competition to their Intel counterparts as the Ryzen 3000 desktop lineup.
The Ryzen 4000 APU lineup for gaming notebooks will leverage the same 7nm Zen 2 core as the Matisse desktop chips. Therefore, we can expect lofty IPC gains, improved gaming performance, and better power efficiency.
The chip leaked today is an 8 core/16 thread part running at a base clock of 2.9GHz and a boost of 4.3GHz. Like the desktop Zen 2 parts, the mobile offerings will also most likely boost slightly lower than the advertised clocks. Still, that should be enough to give the Intel Whiskey Lake chips a run for their money. The Ice Lake chips are still a step away from volume production, so this should give AMD sufficient time to choke Intel’s 9th Gen based Core i5-9300H and i7-9750H CPUs.
In 3DMark Firestrike, the Core i7-9750H scores 17,357 points while the leaked Ryzen 7 4800H scores 19,000 points, essentially becoming the fastest laptop gaming CPU. Yeah, this is just the Physics test, but considering the specs and all, we can sure be excited.
A higher core count paired with better IPCs and comparable core clocks should alleviate the deltas in gaming and other Intel favored applications. This should really help reduce the pricing of gaming laptops. Paired with the Radeon RX 5500, we can expect significantly cheaper devices than competing Intel i5/i7-GeForce GTX 1650 offering.
The Ryzen 4000 “Renoir” mobile CPUs should be announced at CES later this month, when the company CEO, Dr. Lisa Su takes the stage for the first time in 2020.
