AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX shows up on Geekbench outperforming the 5900HX

AMD announced the new Ryzen 6000 series laptop APUs during CES 2022, but we haven't seen them in action just yet. Fortunately, some benchmarks are beginning to surface, giving us an early look at performance compared to AMD's previous generation APUs. 

The Geekbench entry found by @Benchleaks shows the 8C/16T processor running on a Lenovo 82RG with 28GB of memory Windows 11 Pro installed. With a 3.3GHz base clock speed, the chip boosted to 4.84GHz during the test, just 60MHz shy of the listed 4.9GHz limit. In addition, it also indicates the processors features 16MB of L3 cache and 4MB of L2 cache, for a total of 20MB. Despite not being listed, this APU also has an RDNA2 iGPU with 12CUs.

The Ryzen 9 6900HX scored 1,593 points in the single-core test, about 12% faster than the average Ryzen 9 5900HX (1,417 points). Now comparing multi-core performance, the Ryzen 6000 series chip got a 10,151 score, resulting in a 33% performance boost over its predecessor (7,658 points).

With the new Ryzen 6000 series, AMD will close part of the performance gap between the Ryzen 5000 and the 12th Gen Core chips, but Intel seems to keep the lead. Compared to the Intel Core i9-12900H laptop CPU, the AMD chip is about 14% and 28% slower in single and multi-core, respectively.

The first Ryzen 6000 series-powered laptops are expected to launch in February, at which point we'll see a broader range of performance tests and results.
