AMD Ryzen 7 5700U in HP Pavilion Laptop 15-eh1xxx is an SMT upgrade over the Ryzen 7 4700U with an up to 23% Geekbench multi-core score improvement
Tum Apisak has spotted an HP Pavilion Laptop 15-eh1xxx device being tested on Geekbench (v5.2.2) a couple of times. The laptop sports an upcoming Renoir Refresh APU inside it in the form of the AMD Ryzen 7 5700U with Radeon Graphics. The Ryzen 7 5700U is part of a series of chips expected to be launched in January 2021, with the Ryzen 5000 mobile APU family consisting of a combination of Zen 2 processors (Lucienne) and Zen 3 parts (Cezanne).
The HP Pavilion laptop with Ryzen 7 5700U scored 1,111 and 1,172 points in the two single-core tests and 6,099 and 6,595 points in the multi-core tests. Compared to Geekbench 5.2 results for the AMD Ryzen 7 4700U in our database, the multi-core improvement, if taken as a median measurement, stands at a healthy 23.29%. The Ryzen 7 5700U offers 8 cores and 16 threads thanks to enabled SMT, whereas the Ryzen 7 4700U is restricted to 8 cores and 8 threads, so of course the multi-core scores for the Lucienne part are glowing in comparison.
However, the CPU component of the Ryzen 7 5700U is the same as the Ryzen 7 4800U, which also operates with 8 cores and 16 threads, despite the naming difference. The base and boost clocks are similar (1.8 GHz vs. 1.8 GHz and 4.3 GHz vs. 4.2 GHz), with the Lucienne part having a very slight advantage in boost. This time, the multi-core median results offer a -1.19% performance difference, but this is mostly down to our Lenovo Yoga Slim 7’s incredible performance results while it was in review. The Ryzen 7 5700U in the HP laptop cannot be directly compared to the Ryzen 7 4800U in the Yoga Slim, which was designed to get the most performance out of its Renoir Ryzen 4000 APU.
There also appears to be a slight boost with the GPU clock, with the Ryzen 7 5700U’s integrated graphics reaching up to 1.9 GHz while the Ryzen 7 4700U and Ryzen 7 4800 make do with 1.6 GHz and 1.75 GHz, respectively. Depending on which APU you compare it with, the Ryzen 7 5700U Renoir Refresh is either a noticeable upgrade or a drop in the ocean. Perhaps the Zen 3 Cezanne parts will demonstrate a more exciting performance improvement when benchmarks involving them start appearing online.
