Some of the latest Geekbench 4 and 5 results for the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H APU have been shared online, and once more they offer the sort of high multi-core scores you would expect from a Ryzen 4000 processor. However, the Renoir part in the Asus TUF Gaming laptop also kept up with the single-core scores for the i9-9980HK found in the Dell Precision 5540 and Apple MacBook Pro 15 2019.

We already reported on Geekbench 4 scores and Geekbench 5 results for AMD’s new Ryzen 7 4800H APU, and now we have some of the latest results of the same chip to compare with the rival Intel Core i9-9980HK. If we focus on the Geekbench 5 results, we can see that the Ryzen 7 4800H in the Asus TUF Gaming A17 laptop managed single-core scores that ranged from 1,192 to 1,195 points and multi-core test results that went from 8,291 points to 8,343 points. The current ranges are similar to those achieved in the February benchmarks.

The AMD Ryzen 7 4800H utilizes 8 cores and 16 threads with a TDP of 45 W. These are the same core specifications for Intel’s Coffee Lake processor i9-9980HK. We have had the opportunity to test this processor a couple of times on Geekbench 5, as part of a Dell Precision 5540 and as the processor for the Apple MacBook Pro 15 2019. The Dell laptop recorded a higher single-core score of 1,243 points, but the Apple MacBook Pro 15 2019’s Intel Core i9-9980HK actually slipped behind the Renoir APU, managing 1,171 points.

In the multi-core results for the Geekbench 5 test, the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H in the Asus TUF Gaming really shows its strength. The 8,343 points listed above completely overshadows the 7,267 points the MacBook’s Coffee Lake chip offered, and the Precision 5540 was even further behind on 7,072 points. All three devices had 32 GB of RAM to rely on. The Ryzen 4000 chip has a much higher base clock than the i9-9980HK: 2,900 MHz vs. 2,300 MHz. But the 14 nm Intel processor can boost to 5,000 MHz while the 7 nm Ryzen 7 4800H can clock to 4,200 MHz. It seems the Asus TUF Gaming laptop with the new Renoir APU makes for a formidable partnership.
