AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX benchmarks recently emerged online (via Tom’s Hardware). If the benchmarks are accurate, AMD’s upcoming mobile processors deliver incredibly impressive scores. According to Twitter user TUM_APISAK, who shared the benchmarks, the Ryzen 9 5900HX stands up against the likes of the Intel Core i7-10700K desktop processor and the Intel Core i9-10980HK mobile processor.
While these benchmarks are impressive, it’s important to look at them within context. The newly shared Ryzen 9 5900HX scores are from a single test, while the scores that appear for the compared Intel processors come from several submissions. Additionally, it is always worth taking leaked benchmark scores with a grain of salt.
The rumored Ryzen 9 5900HX is an eight-core chip with 16 threads. It’s expected to have AMD’s Zen 3 cores. It’s also believed that the Ryzen 9 5900HX has 16MB of L3 cache, which is twice as much as the Ryzen 9 4900H. In the leaked benchmarks, the Ryzen 9 5900HX has a base clock of 3.3 GHz and a boost clock of 4.71 GHz.
With a single-core score of 1,534 and a multi-core score of 9,015, the Ryzen 9 5900HX outperforms the Intel Core i9-10980HK, which received single-core and multi-core scores of 1,374 and 8,444, respectively (via Tom’s Hardware). While based off just a single leaked benchmark, that shows 10 percent and 6 percent better single-core and multi-core scores for the Ryzen 9 5900HX than its Intel counterpart.
These recent benchmarks also show that the Ryzen 9 5900HX beats out some Intel desktop processors, such as the Intel Core i7-10700K, which has single and multi-core scores of 1,350 and 8,982, respectively.
We’ll have to wait some time to see the Ryzen 9 5900HX and see how it stacks up to Intel’s offering in the real world, but these leaked benchmarks suggest that AMD will continue to push the limits of mobile computing.
