AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS in Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 unsettles Intel Core i9-9880H in the Apple MacBook Pro 16 2019 with sturdy Geekbench 5 results
The new AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS APU has been discovered in two recent Geekbench 5 records as part of an Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401IV laptop. The system, which also had 16 GB of RAM to call upon, made full use of the 8-core, 16-thread Renoir chip and produced the scores mentioned above. The base frequency of the Ryzen 4000 processor was measured at 2.90 GHz.
The Ryzen 7 4800HS is expected to be found in powerful laptops that can take full advantage of the Zen 2 architecture improvements. Another processor that can be found in similar devices is the i9-9880H from Intel, which we have tested in laptops such as the Apple MacBook Pro 15 2019 and Apple MacBook Pro 16 2019. The Coffee Lake’s median scores for Geekbench 5 were 1,186 points for the single-core test and 7,100 points for the multi-core score.
As usual, Intel has the edge over AMD in single-core benchmarks, but it’s only a very narrow margin between the 1,164 points of the Ryzen 7 4800HS and the 1,186 median score of the i9-9880H. However, the Intel chip has a higher TDP of 45 W compared to the 35 W for the Renoir APU. But a higher base clock rate (although lower boost clock) and improved manufacturing technology have helped give the new Ryzen 4000 processor enough performance enhancements to keep up with the more power-hungry Intel Core chip and even outclass it in multi-core tests.
