The Ultimate Ryzen 5 3580U vs. Ryzen 3500U and 3700U CineBench Comparison: Almost All Alike

Microsoft's semi-custom approach to Ryzen isn't really any better than the best Ryzen 5 3500U or Ryzen 7 3700U laptop you can buy in terms of performance. It's certainly good and comparable to the Core i7-1065G7 in some respects, but benchmarks for the Ryzen 5 3580U show it to be nothing special.
