New references have emerged that apparently show a new laptop processor from AMD – and if accurate, these results could give Intel something to worry about.
For years Intel has been the undisputed king of laptop processors in terms of performance and market share, but it looks like AMD could get its money’s worth with the rumored AMD Ryzen 9 5900H.
While the Ryzen 5000 mobile processors for laptops have not been officially announced and therefore no laptops have been revealed to run on chips either, a laptop from Mechrevo has apparently been spotted with the AMD Ryzen chip. 9 5900H, as well as an unannounced mobile Nvidia. RTX 3000 series graphics card.
The benchmarks come from the CPU-Z and Cinebench R20 tools. If correct, they show a big jump in performance over AMD’s previous generation of laptop processors, as well as a decent lead over Intel’s Core i7-10875H mobile processor.
What’s the score?
As the Notebookcheck website reports, the results were published on the Chinese website SMZDM and shared by the Twitter account @ 9550pro, and shows that the alleged laptop has a single-core score of 584 and a multi-core score of 5,264 in Cinebench R20.

Notebookcheck compares this to the results of Ryzen 9 4900HS, a previous generation eight-core chip, which scored 495 points (single) and 4,288 points (multi) in the same tests. That’s a big jump in performance for the supposed new processor, with over 22% better results in the multi-core score.
Notebookcheck also compared the results to the Intel Core i7-10875H, which is also an 8-core mobile processor, and has the same 45W TDP (thermal design power) as AMD’s new chip.
Again, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900H looks like it can deliver a decent performance boost, with a huge 20.41% advantage over single-core performance and 54.62% over multiple cores compared to the i7’s median scores. -10875H (drawn from 26 devices).
If these results are indicative of the actual performance of AMD’s upcoming mobile processors (and remember, the numbers aren’t confirmed), then upcoming laptops running on AMD’s Ryzen 5000 mobile processors could sweep the floor with Intel devices.
With CES 2021 live on January 11-14, we expect AMD to finally unveil its new mobile chips, along with a slew of new hardware-powered laptops. We should also see Intel’s response at the show.
With such fierce competition, 2021 could be a really exciting times for laptops.
