As per a leaked PassMark benchmark, AMD’s Cezanne mobile flagship, the Ryzen 9 5900HX is a whopping 45% faster than Intel’s fastest mobile offering, the Core i9-10980HK. Where the latter scores a total of 16,594 points, the new Zen 3 part manages a rather impressive 24,039 points beating the Comet Lake-H flagship by roughly 45%.
Thanks to its high boost clock, the Core i9-10980HK performs relatively better in the single-threaded test, but still fails to catch up to the 5900HX.
Comparing the Renoir and Cezanne flagships, you can see that while the multi-threaded performance has improved by a respectable figure, the single-threaded performance has gotten a major uplift.
At present, the Ryzen 9 5900HX sits at the top of the PassMark mobile CPU chart, something we don’t expect to change anytime soon. Intel’s Tiger Lake-H CPUs are going to be limited to four cores and eight threads for the time being, with no word on the eight-core offerings.
