AMD had suggested at its CES 2020 keynote that its next-gen processors would offer desktop-level performance, but that’s become tons more apparent after a leaked benchmark shared by leaker @TUM_APISAK showed the Ryzen 7 4800H holding its own against Ryzen and Intel desktop CPUs alike.
The benchmark in question shows the Ryzen 7 4700H earning 8,350 points within the 3DMark Time Spy physics score, which measures exclusively CPU performance.
That score doesn’t quite continue with AMD’s other higher-tier desktop processors just like the Ryzen 7 3700X, which scored a stunning 10,180.
However, this leaked benchmark suggests that it’ll topple high-end Intel desktop chips just like the Intel Core i7-9700K. Team Blue’s chip only manages to grab 8,200 points within the benchmark.
It isn’t far behind the 4800H, but it’s still behind.
The incontrovertible fact that the Ryzen 7 4800H is thrashing the Intel chip isn’t as big (especially given the narrow margin) because it’s competing in the least.
Remember that this is often a mobile processor with greater thermal power constraints than a desktop chip just like the Core i7-9700K.
Of course, we’ve to require this leak with some grains of salt, given the chip hasn’t quite made its thanks to market. We’ll just need to wait and see what the Ryzen 7 4800H is capable of when it makes its way into laptops within the next few months.
While it might be great news for the laptop market to ascertain true desktop-grade performance coming in what is going to presumably be a reasonable package, Intel has a number of its own tricks up its sleeve.
With this sort of competition, 2020 is going to be a heck of a year for laptops.
