AMD’s Ryzen 5000U CPUs are expected to arrive within the next few months, with a mix of Zen 2 refreshed SKUs and newer Zen 3 models. Recent leaks have started to point towards what performance we can expect from these upcoming processors.
A Geekbench 5 database entry for the Ryzen 7 5800U (Zen 3) has been spotted by Leakbench. When compared to the average result of an 8C/16T Ryzen 7 5700U (Zen 2), the 8C/16T Ryzen 7 5800U is about 20% faster in the single-thread benchmark (1189 vs 1421), and 3.6% in the multi-threaded benchmark (6226 vs 6450). These results are in accordance with the IPC increase that Zen 3 brings over the Zen 2 architecture, which is around 19% according to AMD.
As per the Geekbench database entry, the Ryzen 7 5800U has a base clock of 1.9GHz and boosts up to 4.4GHz. Compared to its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 4800U, that’s an increase of 200MHz in frequency. Additionally, it’s expected to come with a 10-25W TDP and integrated graphics based on the Vega architecture, featuring 8 CUs clocked at 2.0GHz (+0.25GHZ over the Ryzen 7 4800U iGPU), according to @ExecutableFix.
The Ryzen 5000U SKUs should be available next year. We expect to learn more about them at CES 2021, in January.
