AMD Ryzen 7 4800H ‘Renoir’ Mobility CPU Better Than Desktop-Grade Intel Core i7-9700K Indicate Leaked Performance Results

AMD Ryzen 7 4800H, the flagship processor in the ‘Renoir’ 45W CPU family meant for high-performance and lightweight laptops, and other portable computing machines appear to outperform Intel Core i7-9700K. In other words, the AMD’s Mobility CPU is reportedly outpacing even the desktop-grade Intel CPUs. The processor from AMD is by far the fastest mobility processor in the Renoir family, indicates leaked performance benchmarks.

If the first performance results of the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor are to be believed, the AMD Mobility CPU appears to be not just rivaling but even surpassing desktop-grade processors. The CPU hasn’t been officially launched, but experts indicate AMD could start shipping them to OEMs in this very quarter of the New Year.

AMD Ryzen 7 4800H ‘Renoir’ Mobility CPU Rivals The Intel Core i7-9700K And Ryzen 7 2700X Desktop CPUs In 3DMark Performance Benchmark:

The leaked performance benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H ‘Renoir’ Mobility CPU were first reported by ‘TUM_APISAK’ but a more detailed link was posted by ‘Rogame’.

The 3DMark performance comparison between the Ryzen 7 4800H, the Intel Core i7-10750H and the Core i9-9980HK, indicates the AMD Mobility CPU being 14 percent faster than the 6 core / 12 thread Core i7 chip. Although the AMD CPU is actually based on the ZEN 2 Architecture and not ZEN 3 or ZEN 4, it is quite close to the Intel’s top-end Core i9 CPU.

With discreet GPUs, laptops packing the Intel CPUs can still outperform the AMD-based laptops with onboard Vega graphics chips. However, AMD could alter the situation with mightier Renoir designs. Even with the current results, it is truly impressive to see AMD’s Mobility CPUs rivaling Intel’s desktop-grade CPU.

AMD Ryzen 7 4800H ‘Renoir’ Mobility CPU Specifications And Features:

The AMD Ryzen 7 4800H is a 45W ‘Renoir’ Mobility CPU that packs 8 Cores with two threads each. Simply put, the 45W CPU features 8 Cores and 16 Threads, with a Base Clock of 2.9 GHz, and a Boost Clock of 4.2 GHz. The AMD Mobility CPU comes with an impressive 16MB L3 Cache. The AMD Processor is a standalone APU meant for budget gaming laptops as it combines a 7nm Vega GPU with 8 CUs or 512 stream processors.

AMD may not have officially launched the Ryzen 7 4800H, but the company showcased its performance benchmark. The results strongly indicated the AMD Mobility CPU was ahead of a desktop-grade Intel Core i7-9700K (95W) processor. AMD’s primary focus was the official announcement of the Ryzen 4000 series at CES 2020, and the Ryzen 7 4800H is being marketed as a mobility chip with desktop-tier CPU performance.

AMD is not only taking on the existing Intel CPUs, which are the 9th Gen H-series parts such as the Core i9-9980HK and the Core i7-9850H but could very well compete with upcoming 10th Gen Comet Lake-H series CPUs which would include Core i9-10980HK and Core i7-10880H.

AMD Ryzen 7 4800H ‘Renoir’ Mobility CPU To Feature Within Competitively Priced Gaming Notebook Computers?

With such impressive results, AMD’s Ryzen 4000 Mobility CPUs from the Renoir family could work wonders in the portable gaming laptops and lightweight notebooks. They could lower the entry prices of gaming laptops, especially when compared against Intel’s 10th-Gen mobility chips.

It is quite apparent that at just 45W Power Draw, the AMD Ryzen based notebooks can offer higher performance per watt and definitely longer battery endurance. Even though based on the ZEN 2 Architecture, the 7nm AMD Renoir Mobility CPUs can perform graphics and CPU-intensive tasks with lesser power draw.
