AMD Ryzen 7 5800H shows decent performance gains over the 4800H model in latest Geekbench tests
AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800H laptop processor was first spotted on Geekbench almost 2 weeks ago, but that initial database entry appeared to include very low scores due to limited frequency test runs. The same model running at maximum base and boost clocks recently received a proper test and the performance increase over the Ryzen 7 4800H seems to be consistent with the improvements recorded by the ULV version.
The Geekbench database entry shows that the Ryzen 7 5800H processor has its eight cores clocked at 3.2 GHz by default, with boost clocks reaching 4.45 GHz. That is 300 MHz more for base clocks and 250 MHz more for boost clocks compared to the Ryzen 7 4800H. Geekbench also reports that the processor was tested on an Acer Nitro AN515-45 notebook equipped with a “CZ Scala-CAS” motherboard and 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM.
Similarly to the performance increase recorded by the Ryzen 7 5800U ultra-low voltage processors a while back, the Zen3-based Ryzen 7 5800H appears to be 35% faster in single-core tests with 1475 points and around 15% faster in multi-core tests with 7630 points compared to the Zen2-based Ryzen 7 4800H. This is based on the default Renoir scores, however. If we dig deeper into the database, we can find entries where the 4800H managed to score up to 1204 points in single-core tests and up to 7565 points in multi-core tests, presumably with some overclocking applied. In this case, the 5800H model would still be around 20% faster in single-core tests, but only ~1% faster in multi-core tests.
We are expecting an official reveal for the Ryzen 5000 U-series and H-series to be at CES next month, with availability panning throughout Q1 and Q2 2021.
