Asus laptop with AMD Ryzen 9 HX 170/370 spotted in benchmarks

Geekbench recently received three sets of results for the Ryzen 9 HX 170 processor in CPU and GPU testing. The nomenclature update for AMD's Strix Point CPUs just ahead of the Computex announcement caused confusion, with some laptops displaying outdated SKU names during the tests.

The Ryzen 9 HX 170/370 is a 12-core Zen 5 CPU (4 + 8) with a maximum boost speed of 5.1GHz for the Zen 5 cores. The Zen 5c core clock speeds are still unknown. Moreover, the chip features 16 RDNA 3.5 CUs that can turbo up to 2.9GHz. The tests were conducted on an Asus ProArt A16 laptop, which doesn't have discrete graphics. As such, the APU wattage could be higher than the default 28W TDP. Assuming it had the same TDP as previous AMD laptop chips in this segment, it could be configured to go as low as 15W or as high as 54W.

Looking at the various entries shared by Benchleaks, we can see the Strix Point CPU did not achieve the expected 5.10 GHz clock speed, peaking at “just” 4.25GHz. This could be attributed to a lower TDP or the fact that the HX 170 is an engineering sample. While the single-core scores (1 and 2) were a bit underwhelming (about the same as a Core i5-14500), the multi-core performance looked to be quite decent, matching that of an AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX.

Focusing on the GPU performance, the OpenCL tests saw the GPU scoring 41,995 points, indicating a notable improvement over its predecessor. Referred to as “Radeon 880M”, it showcases a 39% and 59% performance increase over the RDNA3-based 780M and RDNA2-based 680M, respectively. Moreover, it surpasses the performance of the GTX 1650 Ti Mobile. While OpenCL tests may not accurately depict real-world gaming performance, these results hint at substantial architectural advancements and increased core count.
