AMD Ryzen 7 4800H holds its own against Intel's i9-10980HK and i7-10750H on Geekbench with powerful multi-core scores
Comet Lake vs. Ryzen 4000: It’s likely going to be about cost. Tum Apisak has provided us with a handy Geekbench 4 comparison that includes the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H APU, the Intel Core i9-10980HK, and the Intel Core i7-10750H. All these chips are aimed at the laptop market and have TDPs of 45 W. The first two parts have eight cores each, while the i7-10750H has six cores.
In the single-core test, the Intel processors performed strongly, with an i9-10980HK sample scoring 5,861 points and an i7-10750H chip managing a very impressive 5,998 points. The Ryzen 4000 rival scored a reasonable 5,228 points in a system labeled “ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. TUF Gaming FA706II_FA706II”.
The AMD Ryzen 7 4800H really starts baring some teeth in Geekbench’s multi-core test. The Zen 2 APU scores 31,614 points here, putting it way ahead of the Comet Lake i7-10750H with its two fewer cores (25,687 points managed for one particular test). However, the fast i9-10980HK overtakes the AMD competition with a high score of 33,981 points. With a strong showing in both single-core and multi-core tests, it appears the latter Comet Lake-H processor is the points champion out of the three, at least in this particular scenario.
But there are some additional points that need to be made here. It seems probable that the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H can be pushed harder yet and close the narrow margin between it and the i9-10980HK, as the Intel Core i9 rival does have the advantage of higher base and boost clocks. Even more important to future prospective buyers is the price/performance ratio – it’s more than likely that the Ryzen 4000 chip is going to be less expensive than its Comet Lake competition.
