AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX leaked scores bring serious troubles for Intel

AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900HX- hopefully, the next-gen ‘Cezanne’ chipset for laptops may just permit overclocking. It’s benchmark shows some fantastic scores and results as compared to that of Intel’s Core i7-10700K desktop and the Core i9-10980HK mobile CPU.

Tum_Apisak’s leaks on Twitter showered some light on this. Ryzen 9 5900HX has been spotted in an Asus make ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE (GX551QS) laptop in Geekbench’s database.

AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX promises to be faster than Intel’s Core i7-10700K desktop processor in a few ways.

Coming to the CPU score: the single-core has a score of 1,534, and the multi-core has a core of 9,015, which is unimaginably impressive for a laptop or a notebook. The 5900HX has the power of boosting up to 4.7GHz.

This clearly implies that the 5900HX is around 10% and 6% quicker in their respective formats but let’s not get carried away just with the scores.

AMD and Intel Comparison

It might be interesting to know that the 5900HX is proving to be more worthy than Intel’s desktop processors. The average Geekbench score of Core i7-10700K is 1,350 and 8,982. The scores surely tell us one thing: the 5900HX will be around 12% quicker for the single-core unit. However, in the case of the multi-core, they will be almost of the same performing range.

If the performance matches or is even close to what the scores imply, AMD will impress everyone and build a huge market for itself since we are considering a laptop chip here. And such performance on a laptop chip is literally great news. A desktop CPU pulls way more power, about 125W, to reach its level of performance. Intel’s flagship-level processor, 10900K, produces an average score of 1,405 for the single-core. So the 5900HX wins the battle in the single-core category. However, the scores in the multi-core category show that Intel wins the game by a small margin (almost 11,000).

Looking back at the existing Ryzen mobile chipsets- Ryzen 9 4900H scoring 1,232 for single-core and 8,820 for multi-core in a sample benchmark test. It was spotted that 5900HX is around 20% faster in the department of single-core. However, in the case of the multi-core, the differences are not huge.

So the question arises that whether Intel should be worried or not after seeing such benchmark scores. Well, surely because the ‘HX’ suffix could mean that the Ryzen CPU facilitates overclocking. This will produce superior performance.

Ryzen 5000 mobile range also promises to be a strong contender in the world of laptops.
