AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800U Beats Intel’s 45W Core i7-10750H

AMD’s Ryzen 4000H series are out and about, pounding the Intel competition as they go. Team blue’s main problem is the excessive power draw that’s the result of using a much older node. The 14nm process powering the Comet Lake parts is nearly five years old now and a lot less efficient than TSMC’s 7nm node that powers the Ryzen chips. The most glaring example is that the Ryzen 7 4800U, a 15W (edit: configured to run at 25W) part is able to beat the 45W Intel Core i7-10750H:

Granted, this isn’t an apples-to-apples comparison seeing that the two chips are from different segments, but that makes it even more remarkable. A 15W APU beating a rival Intel part that draws nearly thrice as much power is a first. (blueapplechiropractic.com)

Keep in mind that these TDPs are the base power draw figures. Under load, these chips will most likely draw more power than spec.
