AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 6850H squeezes past Intel Core i7-12800H in PassMark CPU Mark score as Zen 3+ continues to impress
The AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850H is the latest Zen 3+ “Rembrandt” processor to appear on PassMark, hot on the heels of the equally impressive Ryzen 7 6800U. With a typical max TDP of 45 W, more performance can be expected from this powerful laptop processor that is destined for appearances in future mobile workstations. The 8-core Ryzen 7 PRO 6850H delivers a single-thread score of 3,405 points and an average CPU Mark score of 24,325 based on a single sample, so a high margin of error is in place at the moment.
The scores hold up very well against other 45 W parts, such as the Cezanne Zen 3-based Ryzen 9 5900HX and Ryzen 9 5980HX, and as mentioned above, the Ryzen 7 PRO 6850H can keep up with, and even squeeze out, the Intel Core i7-12800H. That latter part has 14 cores, but only 6 of those are categorized as performance cores while the remaining 8 are classed as efficient cores. As can be seen in the screenshot below, the Ryzen 7 PRO 6850H offers small gains over the Zen 3 Ryzen 9 chips in both single-thread and multiple CPU test suite benchmarking.
Unsurprisingly though, the spoils are shared when it comes to a face-off between the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850H and the Intel Core i7-12800H. While the latter enjoys a +3.91% advantage in single-thread testing, the former delivers a +2.90% lead in CPU Mark. However, the APU from Team Red also comes with something of a secret weapon included, as it features an RDNA2-based iGPU as part of its configuration. The AMD Radeon 680M graphics component is much newer and faster than the i7-12800H’s Iris XE Graphics G7 part, and this certainly shows in a direct comparison.
