AMD’s Ryzen 7000 “Dragon Range” mobile processors look more impressive by the day. Leveraging a chiplet design based on the Zen 4 CCDs, they’ll bring desktop-grade performance to gaming notebooks in a portable form factor. A Geekbench 5 benchmark of the flagship has been spotted, giving us a preliminary estimate of the SKU’s capabilities.
The device in question is the ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 16, featuring the Ryzen 9 7945HX alongside 32GB of DDR5 quad-channel memory. The CPU has a base clock of 2.5GHz and a peak single-core boost of 5.4GHz. The L3 cache is pegged at 64MB, equally distributed between the two CCDs.
The Dragon Range flagship posts impressive single and multi-core figures. With a single-core score of 2,127 points, it leads the Ryzen 9 6900HX, the fastest AMD mobile processor, by over 30%. Courtesy of the chiplet design, the multi-core performance is even more impressive. The Ryzen 9 7945HX is nearly twice as fast as its predecessor, boasting 19,403 points (vs. 10,0059 on the 6900HX).
Unlike the desktop space, AMD’s next-gen offerings will perform nearly the same as rival Intel Raptor Lake parts. The energy-efficient Zen 4 core architecture should have no trouble keeping up with the 13th Gen Core HX CPUs that run hot and loud. We recently benchmarked the Razer Blade 16 featuring the Core i9-13950HX and got the following results:
- Intel Core i9-13950HX is Over 2x Fast as AMD’s Ryzen 9 6900HX: Beats the 12th Gen i9-12900HX by ~40%
- Intel Core i9-13900HX Mobile Nearly as Fast as AMD Ryzen 9 7950X Desktop in Geekbench 6
