AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS performs better than the Ryzen 7 3700X and even the mighty Ryzen 9 3950X in startling UserBenchmark test
When a single sample appears on UserBenchmark, it’s always wise to take the results with a pinch of salt. There is a high error for margin and many consider the benchmark’s scoring methods to be flawed. But when an AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS is spotted on the site absolutely flooring the majority of the competition, it’s worth taking a closer look. The Ryzen 4000 chip in an Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 achieved a bench of 96.7% and offered up very surprising single-core and multi-core results.
Tum Apisak compared the 8 core/16 thread chip with a 35 W TDP with a Matisse processor in the form of the Ryzen 7 3700X. The latter also uses 8 cores and 16 threads but can push harder with its 65 W TDP. The older desktop processor was clearly outgunned by the newer laptop APU though: The Ryzen 7 3700X achieved an average bench of 91.7%, and its average single-core score was 134 points, 2-core was 266, 4-core was 513, and 8-core was 929 points. The Ryzen 9 4900HS topped all of those scores.
In fact, the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS UserBenchmark scores even outdid the average scores of the powerful 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X (see the table below), which chugs along with a whopping 105 W TDP. In fairness, the maximum scores amassed by the Ryzen 9 3950X defeat the Renoir APU, but it still appears to be an incredible performance by a mobile processor relying on a much lower TDP. Once some more results for the Ryzen 9 4900HS are collated we should have a better picture at the real performance of this impressive new chip.
|Ryzen 9 4900HS||Ryzen 7 3700X||Ryzen 9 3950X|
|Cores/threads/TDP||8/16/35 W||8/16/65 W||16/32/105 W|
|1-core score||140 points||134 points||137 points|
|2-core score||276 points||266 points||272 points|
|4-core score||546 points||513 points||528 points|
|8-core score||1,081 points||929 points||1,053 points|
