Asus ROG Strix laptops consisting of AMD Ryzen 7 5800H with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and Ryzen 9 5900HX with GeForce RTX 3080 impress in Geekbench OpenCL
Asus ROG Strix laptops sporting fierce Zen 3 Cezanne APUs and Ampere GPU parts have been discovered on Geekbench by Tum Apisak. We recently reported about the potential configuration options for upcoming Asus ROG Strix laptops and now we have a clearer picture of at least two SKUs, and the Geekbench OpenCL scores for both devices reveal just how well the Nvidia laptop GPUs can work alongside the AMD mobile APUs. If an appropriate cooling solution is in place and a premium display with a fast refresh rate is also an option, then Asus could have at least a couple of gaming laptop champions coming in 2021.
First up is the Asus ROG Strix G513QR that comes with an 8-core, 16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 5800H that manages a base clock of 3.20 GHz in this benchmark run but surprisingly only 3.44 GHz boost (4.4 GHz is the expected turbo boost rate). This laptop was also fitted with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 laptop GPU with 40 compute units and came up with a score of 112,448 points in OpenCL. In the current Geekbench charts, this score would put it between the desktop variants of the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Super, so it certainly has the processing chops to please the most demanding of gamers.
However, Asus apparently also wants to tempt those same demanding gamers with an even more mouth-watering option: an Asus ROG Strix G533QS with 8-core, 16 thread AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, recorded with clocks from 3.30 GHz to 4.64 GHz, paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 mobile GPU with 48 compute units. This beast also had 64 GB dual-channel RAM, helping it to an OpenCL score of 133,543 points. That puts this Ryzen 5000/GeForce RTX 30 gaming laptop at the level of a desktop GeForce RTX 3070 according to Geekbench’s chart, although it needs to be remembered that the benchmark chart is based on the average score of multiple tests whereas these two Asus ROG Strix listings are theoretically maximum results at the moment.
