AMD Ryzen 9 5900H, Geekbench 5 confirms important improvements
A little less than a month ago, the first rumors about AMD's new high-end mobile chips (codenamed "Cezanne") from AMD appeared on the net following the sighting of the Ryzen 9 5900HX. Today, however, we talk about the Ryzen 9 5900H, which will offer eight cores, sixteen threads and a boost clock of 4.64GHz. The information comes from the Geekbench 5 database (taken from the well-known leaker @Apisak), where the CPU recorded 1,520 points in the single core test and 9,325 points in the multi-core one.

For comparison, on Geekbench 5 the previous Ryzen 9 4900H ranges from 1175 and 1275 points in single-core and achieves a multi-core score of around 7,500. This makes the 5900H 25% faster in single-threaded applications and approximately 20% more powerful in multi-threaded tasks. This confirms the 19% increase in IPC level (instructions per cycle) given by the use of the new Zen 3 architecture compared to Zen 2 with the same TDP.

Unfortunately, the device on the which the benchmark was run, but it is very likely that we will see the Ryzen 9 5900H in multiple notebooks, especially in those dedicated to the gaming world. The 4900H is a component with a TDP of 45W and although Geekbench 5 does not specify this detail, it is likely that the 5900H will also consume similarly so that laptop manufacturers can install it in their new models without having to redesign the system. cooling.

We remind you that the processor has not yet been formally announced and it will take some time before we see it in products actually on the market. If what happened with the previous 4900H is repeated, we will most likely have to wait until next spring before getting our hands on some device that will offer it inside.

Are you looking for a good motherboard to pair with the new AMD processors? ASUS ROG Strix X570-F with 14 power phases might be a good choice. You can find it on Amazon at an attractive price.
