Expect Ryzen 7 4800U and Ryzen 5 4600U-powered Lenovo laptops, and expect them to crush whatever Intel is offering. Posted on the company's Weibo account, Lenovo has already shown what the two Ryzen 4000 series APUs are capable of.

AMD has upped its game with the Renoir architecture, as we discovered during our recent Zephyrus G14 review. While a Ryzen 9 4900HS powered our review unit, Lenovo is bragging about the capabilities of its U-series siblings. The company has already announced that is upgrading a host of ThinkPad laptops to Ryzen 4000 series APUs, and now it has offered an insight into how the Ryzen 7 4800U and Ryzen 5 4600U perform.

While we are yet to put either APU through their paces, Lenovo claims that the Ryzen 5 4600U can average around 1,300 points in Cinebench R15 Multi. This would put the APU well beyond any comparable Intel processors. Even more excitingly, Lenovo claims that the Ryzen 7 4800U can maintain over 1,550 points in the same benchmark. This is Core i9-9980H territory.

Lenovo stresses that these scores are for reference only. Not only were they achieved on engineering samples, but possibly also on performance modes. Even assuming a 20% performance decrease in general conditions, these 6- and 8-core Ryzen 4000-U series APUs look immensely powerful. Lenovo seems to think so anyway, at least by its marketing poster depicting a dragon representing an eight threaded processor submitting to a sixteen threaded one.

It is also worth mentioning that Lenovo achieved these scores on a Xiaoxin Pro 13, a laptop and series that the company does not sell in most markets. However, the Pro 13 looks remarkably like the equivalent ThinkBook and IdeaPad, so do not be surprised if we see Ryzen 4000-U series versions of these at some point this year, too.
