Leaked benchmark results for the AMD Ryzen 9 4900H paint a bleak picture: in a Dell system config, the flagship AMD mobile CPU is 10 percent slower than the lower-tier Ryzen 7 4800HS and can't hold a candle to the Comet Lake S i9-10980HK.

Tipster @_rogame recently spotted a 3DMark Time Spy benchmark listing for a Dell system powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 4900H and an AMD RX 5600M GPU. The 4.4 Ghz, eight-core processor with a peak boost frequency of 4.4 GHz scored only 8388 in Time Spy's CPU test. This disappointing result is actually 10 percent slower than benchmark results for the lower-end Ryzen 7 4800HS and far behind the Intel Comet Lake S i9-10980HK.

On the GPU side of things, however, the RX 5600M powers past the NVIDIA RTX 2060 Max-Q and the NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti in Time Spy's GPU test, with a score of 6098.

How do we explain the seemingly low CPU test results for the Ryzen 9 4900H? Not all OEMs deploy top-tier cooling, especially on mid range laptops. Moreover, the Ryzen 9 4900H and the Ryzen 7 4800HS are both fundamentally the same 8-core, 16-thread Zen 2 chips, albeit binned differently.

A particularly poor cooling and power setup on the Dell could result in its Ryzen 9 4900H losing out to the lower-tier Ryzen 7 4800HS. A properly cooled AMD Ryzen 9 4900H paired with the AMD RX 5600M should be capable of delivering substantially better results. We will be on the lookout for more Ryzen 9 4900H results to see how they compare.
