AMD Ryzen 5 4500U powering a purported Lenovo IdeaPad laptop takes the Intel Core i7-10710U to the cleaners in Geekbench 5

The AMD Ryzen 5 4500U can possibly take on an Intel Core i7 Comet Lake-U.

A Geekbench 5 listing of the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U powering an unnamed Lenovo laptop seems to indicate that Renoir has enough muscle to beat the Intel Core i7-10710U Comet Lake-U with very good sustained performance. Although not indicated, the Lenovo laptop could, in fact, be an upcoming IdeaPad model.

Over the past few days, we have seen quite a few Lenovo laptops, such as the ThinkPad T14/T15, ThinkPad L14/L15, and the ThinkPad X13 Yoga, being refreshed with AMD Ryzen Pro 4000 APU options. Now, we see that an unnamed Lenovo notebook powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor has popped-up on the Geekbench benchmarking site. 

As per the Geekbench 5 entry, the Lenovo laptop is powered by an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor with a base frequency of 2.38 GHz and sports 8 GB of RAM. The Ryzen 5 4500U scored 1,083 in single-core and 4,744 points in the multi-core test. These scores are much better than most Core i7-10710U scores in the same test under Windows. This is despite the Core i7-10710U having a higher boost frequency and multi-threading support, which the Ryzen 5 4500U lacks. 

What's more interesting is that the Ryzen 5 4500U seems to offer very good sustained performance, maintaining a consistent 3.9 GHz clock throughout the run. This can be verified by appending .gb5 to the Geekbench URL linked below. While this can be attributed to several factors, we do think that this unnamed Lenovo laptop has a pretty robust cooling solution.

The Lenovo AMD laptops we've seen so far include the Yoga Slim 7 and the slew of ThinkPads mentioned above. This entry could, therefore, belong to an IdeaPad series going by the motherboard model identified as LNVNB161216. 

We are already aware that the Ryzen 4000 series offers some tough competition for the Intel Ice Lake CPUs, but for them to potentially displace a very mature platform such as Comet Lake-U makes a very interesting proposition for future laptop buyers.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
