AMD Ryzen 7 6800U and Radeon 680M bring decent performance gains provided there's enough TDP headroom. (Image via AMD/Asus with edits)

First AMD Ryzen 7 6800U benchmarks: Closer to Core i7-1260P in multi-core, Radeon 680M impresses in synthetics but lags in gaming

We have with us the first benchmarks of AMD's latest Ryzen 6800U APU from an Asus ZenBook S 13 OLED laptop. We see that the Ryzen 6800U offers decent improvements in multi-core over a Ryzen 7 5800U but loses out to the Core i7-1260P in single-core. The biggest advantage, however, is with the Radeon 680M iGPU that can ably compete with the likes of a GTX 1650 Max-Q in some tests, though it might require some upscaling impetus in gaming.
