AMD’s Renoir APU, the Ryzen 7 4800HS, has been spotted in action again. This time, the mobile processor was tested on 3DMark’s Fire Strike Ultra test, with the physics score recorded as 21,254 points. This puts it way beyond a tested Intel Core i7-9700K on 18,934 points and not a million miles behind the powerful Core i9-9900K on 24,794 points.

Once again, AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800HS has been racking up an unlikely score in a well-known synthetic benchmark. After making an impressive appearance in Time Spy, the Ryzen 4000 series APU has now been discovered on Fire Strike Ultra, knocking up a run that left it with 21,254 points.

The low TDP (35 W) Renoir processor has seemingly been taking on desktop processors from both Intel and its own parent company. The AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS scored above a 105 W Ryzen 7 2700X (20,980) and the 95 W Intel Core i7-9700K. In fact, it wasn’t that far short with its Fire Strike Ultra physics score from the result managed by the 255 W Intel Xeon W-3175X processor (22,382 points).

The AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS is already starting to impress just with these few initial leaks, and it seems the Zen 2 microarchitecture, Radeon Vega graphics, and 7nm manufacturing process are paying dividends. Asus will be using the Ryzen 7 4800HS in its upcoming ROG Zephyrus G14 laptop, which should end up being a tempting prospect for gamers keen to test the new Ryzen 4000 series APUs out for themselves.

My interest in technology began after I was presented with an Atari 800XL home computer in the mid-1980s. I especially enjoy writing about technological advances, compelling rumors, and intriguing tech-related leaks. I have a degree in International Relations and Strategic Studies and count my family, reading, writing, and travel as the main passions of my life. I have been with Notebookcheck since 2012.
