Ryzen 9 5900HX leaked, Offers 30% Performance Boost Compared to its Predecessor in the Single-Core Performance

The 5000 series Ryzen GPUs based on the new Zen 3.0 architecture have finally provided the push required to make Intel’s processors run for their money. The market share of the AMD processors has been rising pretty rapidly for the past few months. Adding the fact that AMD now offers better gaming performance than the contemporary Intel processors makes the situation ideal for AMD.

AMD currently only offers a desktop processor based on the Zen 3 architecture. The mobile processors based on the new architecture have not been announced yet. It seems these would not take as long as usual. Videocardz has spotted the first mobile processor in the Ryzen 5000 lineup.

According to the report, a laptop featuring Ryzen 9 5900HX was leaked thanks to an early retailer listing. According to the listing, the Ryzen 9 5900HX is an 8-Core multithreaded CPU with a base clock speed of 3.3GHz and a boost speed of 4.6GHz. The processor will be a successor to the Ryzen 9 4900H. Both processors feature the same number of cores; however, the newer processor offers a 200Mhz boost in the boost clock speed.

It is not sure what the letter ‘X’ stands for in the name since the predecessor only has the letter ‘H.’ Another leak suggests that there is also another model, Ryzen 9 5900HS, which may be the lower clocked version capped at 35W.

GeekBench score of Ryzen 9 5900HX

The leaked Geekbench score of the processor reveals that the processor is 23% faster than the Core i7-10750H in the single-core performance, while in the multi-core performance, the boost is around 24%. Compared to the predecessor, the processor is 30% faster in the single-core and 3% slower in the multicore performance. It is not sure why the multicore performance is not on par with the single-core performance boost. It could mean that these are the early production units and require further tuning before actual release.
