The first 3DMark Fire Strike and Time Spy results of the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H seem to indicate that the new APU could pose a tough challenge for the Intel Core i7-10750H despite the Ryzen 5 4600H having a lower L3 cache and about 700 MHz lower clock. The performance gains with Ryzen 4000 combined with the availability of a capable Vega iGPU may finally give a shot in the arm to AMD's fortunes in the laptop market.

Benchmarks of the AMD Renoir Ryzen 4000 APUs are leaking at a steady pace indicating an imminent launch of new Ryzen laptops. Recently, the first 3DMark Fire Strike and Time Spy results of the Ryzen 5 4600H have leaked out and from the initial observations, it seems AMD could very well give a tough run for the Intel Core i7-10750H

In 3DMark, the Ryzen 5 4600H scored 17,466 points in the Fire Strike Physics test. For perspective, the Ryzen 7 4800HS scores 20,970 points while a Ryzen 5 4500U scores 10,042 points. Interestingly, the Ryzen 5 4600H's Fire Strike score is within striking distance of the Core i7-10750H, which scores 17,921 points. The Physics test is CPU-intensive, and it is good to see there's not much difference is scores between the Ryzen 5 4600H and the Core i7-10750H despite the latter having a 700 MHz clock advantage, higher L3 cache and a more refined 14nm process. 

Coming to the Time Spy results, we see that the Ryzen 5 4600H manages to score 6,499 points in the CPU test. Once again, we see that this result is very near to the Core i7-10750H's 6,761 points. The Ryzen 7 4800HS and the Ryzen 5 4500U amass 8,868 and 3,272 points, respectively.

While there's only so much we can deduce from a single run, it looks like AMD stands to gain big from Ryzen 4000. The inclusion of a much more capable onboard Vega graphics is a welcome bonus for those looking to do some light computing on the move. 

We'll keep reporting about more Ryzen 4000 benchmarks as we get them so, stay tuned.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
