AMD Ryzen 7 4800U (27W) Powered Lenovo Yoga 14s Faster than Intel Core i7-9700K (100W+) Desktop CPU

Lenovo seems to be working on a new 14″ Yoga notebook powered by AMD’s Ryzen 4800U processor. It’ll be an ultrabook class laptop, but thanks to the Renoir APU powering it, it’ll trade blows with full-fledged desktop parts. A Lenovo manager from Beijing has shared the Cinebench R20 scores of the Yoga 14s, and it kicks ass. Have a look:

The Lenovo Yoga 14s features a Ryzen 7 4800U under the hood, running with a cTDP of 27W. It scores a whopping 3,573 points in the Cinebench R20 multi-core benchmark, complemented by a strong 483 points in the single-core test. This puts the 4800U ahead of the Intel Core i7-9700K (a desktop part with a stock TDP of 95W; load~ 130W) in terms of both the single-threaded as well as the multi-threaded capabilities:

The Ryzen 7 4800U sits between the desktop-grade Ryzen 5 3600 and the 3600X in terms of performance, beating both the Core i5-9600K and the i7-9700K by a decent margin. Thanks to the 7nm Vega 8 graphics paired with the APU, you can expect well over 30 FPS in most modern titles at 1080p low.
