The Zen 3 Cezanne part AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS has been spotted on Geekbench as part of the fascinating Asus ROG Flow X13 2-in-1 laptop. However, the results don’t seem as high as could be expected, when the Ryzen 9 5900HS should be flying past the Ryzen 9 4900HS and Tiger Lake Intel Core i7-1165G7.

We have just reported about the new Asus ROG Flow X13 2-in-1 laptop that features a Ryzen 5000 mobile processor, GeForce GTX 1650 dGPU, and can be connected to the ROG XMG mobile eGPU. One of these 13.4-inch laptops has recently appeared on Geekbench, as discovered by Tum Apisak, where the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS inside it was put through rigorous single-core and multi-core benchmark tests. The processor, which clocked at 3.30 GHz to 4.41 GHz, offered a mixed bag of results with 1,381 points in the single-core run and 5,897 points in the multi-core test.

This was a stepping 0 variant of the Ryzen 9 5900HS in the Asus ROG Flow X13 ultrabook, so it is an early sample that will hopefully improve with further testing and tweaking (the Asus laptop is expected to be launched at the end of the first quarter 2021). Compared with scores from the previous-generation Ryzen 9 4900HS, the Ryzen 5000 chip seems to stumble. Both parts have 8 cores and 16 threads and rely on a default TDP of 35 W, but Geekbench’s charts show average scores of 1,092 points (-20.92%, single) and 7,031 (+19.23%, multi) for the older Ryzen 4000 processor. So yet again we have a sign of that terrific generational performance gain Zen 3 offers in single-core processing, but there is certainly something going awry with the multi-core performance here.

In comparison with the Tiger Lake Intel Core i7-1165G7, which only has 4 cores and 8 threads and a default TDP of 28 W, there are further signs of the Ryzen 9 5900HS not performing as expected in the ROG Flow X13. Our benchmark tests (20 samples) for the Intel rival offer median scores of 1,553.5 points (+12.49%, single) and 5,342.5 points (-9.40%, multi) and over at Geekbench the average results are 1,409 (+2.03%, single) and 4,659 (-20.99%, multi). You would expect a Zen 3 Ryzen 9 5900HS to be able to smash its way past the i7-1165G7, especially in multi-core benchmarks where it has double the cores to take advantage of. It’s possible the laptop was restrained in a power-saving mode during testing or BIOS updates are required, so a future run may yield much better results.
