AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800H has been spotted being tested on Geekbench again, with some new scores being recorded on version 5 of the well-known benchmark. The Ryzen 4000 series APU scored surprisingly well in the single-core test but really excelled in the multi-core test, where it managed to outmuscle Intel rivals such as the Comet Lake i7-10750H and the Coffee Lake i9-9980HK.

Tum Apisak has been sharing some more data-mined information in relation to the Zen 2 AMD Ryzen 7 4800H APU that is expected to make an appearance in Asus TUF Gaming laptops at the beginning of April. We already reported on how the Ryzen 4000 series chip performed on Geekbench 4 in comparison with the Comet Lake processors i7-10750H and i9-10980HK, and now we have some Geekbench 5 scores to compare. The Ryzen 7 4800H scored 1,196 and 1,198 in two separate single-core runs and managed 8,370 and 8,390 points in two multi-core benchmarks.

So how did the Ryzen 7 4800H compare against similar processors? The comparison included two other laptop chips with 45 W TDPs: the Intel Core i7-10750H and Core i9-9980HK. As we previously mentioned, the i7-10750H only has six cores compared to the other two chips and their eight cores, so obviously it is at a disadvantage in the multi-core tests. Intel parts usually perform well in Geekbench’s single-core benchmark and the i7-10750H hits 1,258 points while the i9-9980HK gets to 1,248 points. But with 1,198 points, the Zen 2 Ryzen 4000 APU really is in striking distance of both rivals, and it punishes the Intel processors in the multi-core test.

Unsurprisingly, the 6-core i7-10750H lags behind on 6,437 points, while the Coffee Lake i9-9980HK chip scores 7,268 points. But the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H racks up 8,370 points and 8,390 points, respectively, giving an ample demonstration of the multi-core performance users will be able to expect from laptops that feature this impressive Renoir APU. Of course, variables such as cooling solutions, power consumption, and length of peak performance time need to be considered, but the Ryzen 7 4800H is still looking like another step in the right direction for AMD, especially if it can also boast of the company’s noted affordability factor upon release.
