AMD Ryzen 9 5980HX

AMD R9 5980HX

The AMD Ryzen 9 5980HX (in leaks also known as R9 5980H is a processor for big (gaming) laptops based on the Cezanne generation. The R9 5980HX integrates all eight cores based on the Zen 3 microarchitecture. They are clocked at 3.3 (guaranteed base clock) to 4.8 GHz (Turbo) and support SMT / Hyperthreading (16 threads). The chip is manufactured in the modern 7 nm process at TSMC. The "X" in the name indicates the overclocking capabilities of the CPU.

The new Zen 3 microarchitecture offers a significantly higher IPC (instructions per clock) compared to Zen 2. For desktop processors AMD claims 19 percent on average and in applications reviews showed around 12% gains at the same clock speed.

With the increased clock speed and IPC improvements thanks to Zen 3, the Ryzen 9 5980HX should be clearly faster than the lower clocked Ryzen 9 4900H.

In addition to the eight CPU cores, the APU also integrates a Radeon RX Vega 8 integrated graphics card with 8 CUs and up to 2100 MHz. The dual channel memory controller supports DDR4-3200 and energy efficient LPDDR4-4266 RAM. Furthermore, 16 MB level 3 cache can be found on the chip.

Power consumption

This Ryzen 9 series chip has a default TDP, also known as the long-term power limit, of 45 W. Laptop makers are free to change that value to anything between 35 W and 54 W, with clock speeds and performance changing accordingly as a result. Either way, a powerful cooling solution is a must for a CPU like this.

The R9 5980HX is built with TSMC's 7 nm process for higher than average, as of late 2022, energy efficiency.
