AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX up to 40% Faster than Intel’s Fastest 13th Gen Mobile Processor [Report]

Additional benchmarks of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 mobile flagship have hit the web. The 16-core Ryzen 9 7945HX has been tested across various workloads, including content creation, encoding, and compression/decompression. The “Dragon Range” flagship trades blows with Intel’s Core i9-13980HX, the fastest Raptor Lake mobile counterpart. The results are summed in the below table:

AMD has made significant strides gen-over-gen. The Ryzen 9 7940HX with a 65W power limit is a whopping 2x faster than its predecessor, the R9 6900HX. Increasing the PL2 TDP to 115W increases the lead to 127%, something we’ve rarely seen before.

The Intel Core i9-13980HX is only 45% faster than the Ryzen 9 6900HX at the same 65W TDP. Pushing the power envelope to 115W makes the Raptor Lake-HX flagship 81% faster than the previous-gen AMD king. It, however, fails to match up to the Ryzen 9 7945HX in nearly every scenario.

Cinebench is easily the most realistic representation of rendering workloads. The R9 7945HX beats the Core i9-13980HX by more than 20% in the R23 multi-threaded benchmark. The two chips perform within 10% of one another in the 7-zip LZMA compression benchmark, only to see the 7945HX take a massive 38% lead in decompression.

X265 media encoding is where the Ryzen 9 7945HX has the largest lead. It beats the Core i9-13980HX by nearly 40%, netting an average of 140.6 FPS versus “just” 104 FPS on the latter.

The Ryzen 9 7945HX is looking better and better with every review. The first gaming notebooks sporting the chip are already out at an eye-watering price of $1,799 to $4,000. We recommend our readers wait for more affordable designs. Unlike the Core i9-13980HX, the Ryzen chips run notably cooler limiting the scenarios where we’d normally see throttling-related performance drops.
