AMD Ryzen 7 5700U in RedmiBook Pro 14S with enhanced iGPU and SMT advantage scores 28.16% higher in Geekbench multi-core test than Ryzen 7 4700U
We have already seen the AMD Ryzen 7 5700U pop up in numerous laptops on Geekbench over the last few weeks, including several HP Pavilion laptops and an Asus VivoBook. The Ryzen 5000 part has also been tested in a TIMI Laptop, which has revealed itself to be an upcoming RedmiBook Pro 14S from the Chinese OEM Xiaomi. Once again, the Ryzen 7 5700U in the RedmiBook Pro has demonstrated a noteworthy performance increase over the Ryzen 7 4700U in multi-core workloads, thanks to the addition of simultaneous multithreading (SMT) support.
The Ryzen 7 5700U can rely on 8 cores and 16 threads for processing whereas the Renoir Ryzen 7 4700U is restricted to 8 cores and 8 threads. So while our median score for the Ryzen 4000 chip in Geekbench 5.0 is 5,018 points, the RedmiBook Pro 14S’s chip managed 6,431 points on this occasion (+28.16%). Even if we measure the latter score against the highest score we have recorded in our tests, which was with an Asus VivoBook Flip 14 that managed 5,757 points, there is still a performance increase of 11.71% for the Ryzen 7 5700U here, which is a reasonable generational improvement.
If that’s all there was, an okay multithread performance increase, then a small fanfare would be sufficient for the arrival of at least the Lucienne Zen 2 members of the Ryzen 5000 mobile APU family (hopefully, Cezanne Zen 3 parts will really shine). But we have to add in the fact that the Ryzen 7 5700U offers SMT and an enhanced iGPU. That iGPU factor should not be overlooked: The Ryzen 7 4700U comes with a Radeon Vega 7 component that clocks up to 1.6 GHz and features 7 compute units (CUs); the Ryzen 5000 APU has a nifty 1.9 GHz-capable iGPU that sports 8 CUs (Vega 8). Ryzen 5000 laptops are starting to look very promising in terms of system performance.
