AMD Ryzen 7 4800H eclipses the Core i9-9980HK in leaked Cinebench R15 result, Vega 7 within reach of an 18W GeForce MX250
Ever since AMD announced the Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs at CES this year, there has been considerable hype and anticipation about the new APUs from both the press and consumers alike. Over the past few days, we've been seeing several Ryzen 4000 benchmarks leak and all of the results have been promising. Now, we are seeing, perhaps for the first time, a Cinebench result of the Ryzen 7 4800H — a 7nm 45W 8-core 16-thread part that is slated to take on the Core i7-9750H and possibly, the Core i9-9980HK as well.
In the leaked Cinebench R15 score posted on Weibo, the Ryzen 7 4800H scored 1,875 points in multi-core. This is at least 43.5% higher than the highest score we logged in our entire repertoire of laptops powered by the Core i7-9750H. The score is also higher than most laptops powered by the Core i9-9980HK with only the Clevo-based models scoring 1,800 and above. An accompanying HWiNFO64 screenshot shows the processor hitting 92.8 degrees Celsius during the run.
It will be interesting to see what the percentage improvements would be like in Cinebench R20 as AMD claimed a similar 46% improvement in the benchmark over the 9750H during the Ryzen 4000 launch.
In another test, we see that the Vega 7 iGPU now shows a performance equivalent to that of an 18W NVIDIA GeForce MX250 while playing League of Legends at 1080p. The Vega 7 with just 7 compute units (CUs) is able to perform similar or even better than a Vega 10 with 10 CUs from the Raven Ridge generation thereby validating AMD's earlier assertion about each Vega core in Renoir being 59% faster than the previous generation.
The prospects certainly seem to be interesting with the upcoming Ryzen 4000 APUs. That being said, as with all leaks, do take these scores with a pinch of the proverbial salt.
