The AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX is almost twice as fast as the previous generation flagship on PassMark

PassMark has recently updated the multi-core ranking for laptop CPUs, introducing the first AMD Ryzen 7000 series chip. Currently, the Ryzen 9 7845HX is the fastest multi-core chip in this test, but that should change after PassMark adds data for the Ryzen 9 7945HX.

The PassMark ranking for multi-core laptop CPU performance now has the AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX at the top with a score of 46,791 points. That's roughly 33% above the second-fastest CPU in this benchmark, the Core i9-12900HX (35,268 points). Compared to its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 6900HX (24,640 points), the Ryzen 7000 series chip is almost twice as fast.

As a reminder, the AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX (codename Dragon Range) is a 12-core chip with 24 threads, a 3.0GHz base clock speed, a 5.2GHz boost clock speed and 76MB of cache. As per AMD, this will have a TDP that exceeds 55W. However, there's an even more powerful CPU in the Ryzen 7000 series, the 16-core Ryzen 9 7945HX. With 80MB of cache and 5.4GHz boost clock speeds, this chip will most likely break the 50K barrier on PassMark.

The first laptops featuring these chips will become available starting this month, so expect to see more benchmarks coming your way.

KitGuru says: Besides AMD Ryzen 7000 series mobile chips, Intel is also launching the 13th Gen Core mobile CPUs. Like AMD's new mobile processors, these have also a higher core count than their predecessors. However, the extra cores are E-cores, so performance may not increase as significantly as on the Ryzen chips.
