The Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301 laptop in combination with an AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS APU has been spotted in a couple of test runs on Geekbench. The Ryzen 9 5980HS produced strong single-core and multi-core results that hold up well against the Ryzen 9 4900H and Intel Core i7-1165G7. At one point, the Zen 3 chip was measured reaching 4.789 GHz.

Asus’s new gaming laptop, the ROG Flow X13, is undoubtedly both a beautiful and crazy beast that seems to be jammed with some of the best components gamers could hope for at the moment…and that’s with barely even mentioning the ROG XG Mobile eGPU that can be fitted with up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU. The top-end variant of this mad machine sports an AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS APU that can offer 8 cores and 16 threads of Zen 3 processing power with clocks that range from 3.3 GHz to 4.8 GHz. The Asus ROG Flow X13 also comes with 32 GB LPDDR4X RAM @4266 MHz and a GeForce GTX 1650 dGPU. It’s a lot of power in a petite package (13.4-inch; 2.87 lbs).

That powerful Cezanne Ryzen 5000 processor has been showing some of its potential on Geekbench, with Tum Apisak noticing two recent runs. The scores were similar in the benchmark tests: 1,532 and 1,541 points single-core and 8,219 and 8,224 points in the multi-core test. These results are much more positive than those recorded recently by the Asus ROG Flow X13 with a Ryzen 9 5900HS and should have gamers champing at the bit for the opportunity to take one for a test drive. Not only did the Ryzen 9 5980HS, which relies on a 35 W TDP by default, reach a frequency of almost 4.8 GHz it also hammered the Ryzen 9 4900H in the single-core test and even kept up with the Tiger Lake i7-1165G7 in the same benchmark.

Taking the slightly higher results of the Ryzen 9 5980HS left it +25.28% beyond the Ryzen 9 4900H in the single-core test and -6.55% behind the Renoir chip in the multi-core benchmark. However, the latter part was in a beefy Lenovo Legion 5P laptop (15.6-inch; 5.51 lbs) and the Ryzen 4000 APU has a higher default TDP of 45 W, so those single-core gains by the Ryzen 5000 chip look incredible. While the 4-core i7-1165G7 will always lose against an 8-core Zen 3 part in the multi-core discipline (+53.94% for the Ryzen 9 5980HS here), the Intel chip only had +0.80% advantage in regard to the median single-core score taken from our various tests. Liquid metal compound cooling, among other things, seems to be helping the Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301 get the best out of its Ryzen 9 5980HS.
