AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9 5900HX mobile APU puts up solid numbers on Geekbench 5

Twitter user APISAK has spotted two new Geekbench 5.3.1 scores of AMD's upcoming eight-core Ryzen 9 5900HX mobile APU. The chip scores an impressive 1547 and 9069 on single and multi-thread tests, respectively, running on an ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE test laptop.

AMD's Ryzen 5000 series mobile APUs are allegedly codenamed Cezanne and are successors to the firm's current 4000 series Renoir APUs. The new 'HX' moniker could indicate at a higher power variant because AMD's current models with 'H' denote 45W parts, while the 'HS' ones are 35W. Ryzen 5000 mobile will be based on the company's third-generation Zen design and might be shown off at CES 2021.

A quick comparison on Geekbench 5 with AMD's current mobile flagship, the Ryzen 9 4900HS, on a ROG Zephyrus G14 shows impressive gains, even in its current early state. While improvements are to be expected from next-gen chips, this particular flagship offering might also feature a higher TDP compared to the 4900HS' 35W, as noted earlier.

Single-core 1223 1547
Multi-core 7924 9069

From the scores, the single-thread numbers are especially impressive with a 26.5% gain and reflect the improvements AMD has made under the hood with Zen 3. The multi-score is somewhat less impressive with a 14.5% improvement in its current state, but this would be an understatement since Ryzen 4000 was already a phenomenal performer.
