Everything to know about AMD Ryzen 7 5800U. Be careful, AMD is coming strong. It has shown it all this year with its Radeon RX 6000 graphics and also with its new Ryzen 5000 processors for PCs, but next year the laptop versions of those mics will arrive, and their potential seems remarkable.
This is indicated by the first benchmarks that have been leaked from the AMD Ryzen 7 5800U. Based on these data, this CPU clearly outperforms the current Ryzen 7 4800U – which is already great performance – in performance per core, bringing it closer to Apple’s eye-catching M1s, which still benefit from its 5nm lithography and other features. of its architecture. The battle will be fantastic, it seems.
AMD Ryzen 7 5800U: Important advance, but not enough to surpass Apple’s M1
Future AMD Ryzen 5000 notebooks belong to the ‘Cezanne’ family, and as their desktop companions they benefit from the new Zen 3 architecture. The most prominent model is the Ryzen 7 5800U, which features eight cores , 16 threads. execution and a native working frequency of 1.9 GHz that can reach 4.4 GHz in Turbo mode.
There are other changes to these chips: they now integrate a 16MB L3 cache versus 8MB for the Ryzen 7 4800U, and that will help reduce latency and improve interconnection between cores. In the Geekbench 5 results these new processors gave a result of 1,421 points for the performance per core, and 6,450 points for the multi-core performance.
The figure is remarkable and represents an improvement of around 30% compared to the Ryzen 7 4800U. That poses a singular advance for some processors that still do not come close to what was achieved by Apple’s new ARM microphones, the M1.
The latter, which have eight cores -4 more powerful, 4 more efficient, but whose clock frequency is not known at which they operate- achieve more than 1,700 points in Geekbench 5 in single core and more than 7,400 in multi-core.
That performance is still simply prodigious considering that we are comparing them to the best processors that AMD will have (in the future) in the coming months for laptops. It is as always a delicate comparison, and it should be noted that the Apple M1 take advantage of its 5 nm lithography (AMD maintains the 7 nm) and features that seem to be crucial for those fantastic performances such as its unified memory architecture (UMA ).
Be that as it may, the new AMD Ryzen 5000 for laptops seem to pose a surprising improvement, and Cezanne outperforms the current Renoirs in a solvent way, which is fantastic for the industry and users . We hope to see the announcement of these buses at CES 2021 with some teams already debuting with this family, so we will stay tuned.
