Benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS APU have started popping up and the latest one is quite a surprise. According to the results recorded on UserBenchmark, the Renoir chip outpaced both the Ryzen 7 3700X and even the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X. The Ryzen 4000 APU was tested in an Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 laptop and managed an average bench of 96.7%.
Daniel R Deakin,

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
Average bench 96.7% 91.7% 94.1%
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
