AMD Ryzen 5 4600HS in Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 scores higher than the average Intel Core i7-10750H on UserBenchmark but still gets a lower bench result
UserBenchmark’s questionable scoring system seems to have been tested once again thanks to the appearance of an AMD Ryzen 5 4600HS sample on the test site. The Ryzen 4000 part was tested inside an Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401II gaming laptop. The overall benchmark result for the Ryzen 5 4600HS was 86.2%, and its 1-core and 2-core results were surprisingly strong for an AMD mobile processor.
The AMD Ryzen 5 4600HS is a 6-core, 12-thread APU with a TDP of 35 W and a clock range of 3.0 GHz – 4.0 GHz. In comparison, the Comet Lake Intel Core i7-10750H is also a 6-core, 12-thread part that has a TDP of 45 W and a clock range of 2.6 GHz – 5.0 GHz. The Comet Lake processor was chosen for comparison simply because the Ryzen 4000 APU pretty much blows the older Intel Core i7-9750H out of the water – at least on UserBenchmark.
If you compare the Normal, Heavy, and Extreme scores (see table below) you can see that the AMD Ryzen 5 4600HS only just falls behind in the Normal result and then defeats the Intel Core i7-10750H in the Heavy and Extreme tests. Admittedly, this is based on a “peak” performance from the Renoir APU compared to the average of the Comet Lake samples (177 units tested at the time of writing). The overall scores created by adding the three test results are: 1,775 points for the i7-10750H and a credible 1,858 points for the Ryzen 5 4600HS. But the Intel processor is awarded a higher bench percentage: 86.9% vs. 86.2%.
This is not the first time UserBenchmark has been pulled up for this kind of result, and it cannot be all attributed to single-core performance score weighting, as the AMD Ryzen 5 4600HS manages a 1-core score of 129 points compared to the i7-10750H’s 133 points (average). That’s a small difference, especially when you compare the huge gap in the 64-core test results: 1,031 points (AMD) vs. 956 points (Intel). The curious bench result should not take anything away from the impressive performance managed by the new Renoir 4000 APU in the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14.
