3DMark confirms class-leading Ryzen 7 4800U and RX Vega 8 performance
The Ryzen 7 4800U is AMD's new flagship U-series processor, and it has once again been showing its credentials on 3DMark. Brought to our attention by @_rogame it seems that the processor has been benchmarked in a Lenovo Yoga Slim 7, on which we have previously reported.
This time, the 15 W and 7 nm chip posted a CPU score of 6,647 in 3DMark Time Spy, along with a graphics score of 1,220. According to @_rogame, the top Tiger Lake-U processor paired with LPDDR4x RAM only outscored the Ryzen 7 4800U by 6.97% in the CPU benchmark and 15.2% in the GPU benchmark. This may look a win for Intel on the face of it, but it is worth keeping in mind that Tiger Lake is effectively next-generation competition for Renoir processors.
While we cannot verify those Tiger Lake-U scores, the RX Vega 8 (Ryzen 4000) is considerably more powerful than the RX Vega 10. Additionally, the RX Vega 8 (Ryzen 4000) outscores the Iris Plus Graphics G7 by over 50% and even gets close to the NVIDIA GeForce MX350.
In short, the Ryzen 7 4800U represents a 15 W APU that can not only keep up with the processor performance of 45 W Intel chips but also the GPU performance of entry-level NVIDIA dedicated GPUs. The Tiger Lake-U architecture should correct this performance gap based on the preliminary data provided by @_rogame but Renoir is looking like a big win for AMD.
