AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS APU overtakes both the Ryzen 7 4800H and Intel's Core i7-9700K CPU in latest Time Spy benchmark leak
The ever-vigilant Tum Apisak has kindly shared yet another fascinating benchmark result that will surely make those interested in mobile gaming and gaming laptops excited about the potential performance of devices featuring Renoir APUs from AMD. The latest Ryzen 4000 series processor to be spotted is the AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS, which racked up a healthy score of 8,734 points on the Time Spy benchmark (see image below).
It wasn’t long ago we published a similar tale concerning AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800H APU. That processor was also discovered performing well on Time Spy, where it amassed 8,350 points. Both of these new Zen 2 APUs managed to defeat the Intel Core i7-9700K desktop CPU, regardless of the latter having a 95 TDP to its advantage. Like before, the Ryzen 7 4800HS’s score was also beyond those of the Ryzen 5 3600 and Ryzen 5 3600X.
However, there is an extra round of applause to be had here for the 35 W Ryzen 7 4800HS APU. Not only is its Time Spy score greater than those of the Ryzen 7 4800H (45 W; + 10 W difference) and the i7-9700K (95 W; + 60 W difference), it also managed something its fellow Ryzen 4000 APU couldn’t do: It scored more points than the powerful 105 W AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. To put it simply, a 35 W Renoir APU on 8,734 points beat out a performance-level 105 W Pinnacle Ridge CPU on 8,600 points.
Of course, there are many other variables that will affect the Time Spy results, but it cannot be denied that AMD seems to have an outstanding mobile chip with the Ryzen 7 4800HS. It appears when an OEM like Asus makes the claim that the 35 W chip will perform at almost the same level as the 45 W APU it wasn’t actually marketing bluff - at least where these scores are concerned. The Ryzen 7 4800HS (and R5 4600HS) will be used in the upcoming Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 laptop, which should be released at the end of March. As we already reported, Asus has the R7 4800HS exclusively for the first six months of its release.
