AMD Ryzen 5 4600H in Asus TUF Gaming laptop demonstrates Zen 2 advantage by romping ahead of the Ryzen 7 3750H and Intel Core i7-8850H in Geekbench tests
Tum Apisak has been sharing the Geekbench 4 and 5 details for a Ryzen 5 4600H processor that was being tested in an Asus TUF Gaming laptop. In the older benchmark version, the system scored 4,984 points in the single-core test and 25,172 points in the multi-core test. For Geekbench 5, the Ryzen 4000 APU came up with 1,116 points in the single-core benchmark and 6,337 points in the multi-core test. The Ryzen 5 4600H is a 6-core, 12-thread part with a default TDP of 45 W (configurable from 35 W to 54 W).
In comparison, the older high-end Ryzen 7 3750H processor scored a median of 4,166 points and 13,403 points in our Geekbench 4 single-core tests and multi-core tests, respectively. In Geekbench 5, we measured the Zen+ Picasso chip scoring medians of 884 points and 3,571 points, respectively, putting it well behind the Renoir representative. The AMD Ryzen 5 4600H does have two more cores, a higher base clock rate, and a higher TDP to rely on, but the new Ryzen 4000 APU is at the lower end of the Zen 2 generation while the Ryzen 7 3750H was one of the most powerful Picasso APUs. It’s a great demonstration of what AMD has changed and improved between the two series.
As for the Intel competition, the Ryzen 5 4600H does away with the Coffee Lake Intel Core i7-8850H, which also has a 45 W TDP and 6 cores/12 threads. In fact, although the Renoir APU has a higher base clock, the Intel part has a higher boost rate (4300 MHz vs. 4000 MHz). Our Geekbench 4 tests with the i7-8850H gave these results: 5,261 points (single core) and 22,631 points (multi core). It’s no surprise the Intel chip was ahead in the single-core test, but Geekbench 5 tells a different story. Here, we recorded 1,006 points (single) and 4,860 points (multi) for the Coffee Lake SoC, which means the AMD Renoir processor was placed ahead in both tests. It seems that the new APU has once more demonstrated what an attractive purchase option it will be for those looking for a Ryzen 4000 laptop.
