The AMD Ryzen 7 5800H has 8 fast Zen-3 cores (16 threads) and reaches a maximum of 4.4 GHz. The chip is produced using the 7-nm process, which has a positive effect on efficiency. The Ryzen 7 5800H currently is one of the fastest 45-Watt mobile processors, as the impressive benchmarks below show. The processor's power consumption peaks at 65 Watt and then immediately stabilizes at around 54 Watt, which leads to very stable performance.
The IdeaPad Pro, equipped with the same processor, offers comparable performance while the other models, equipped with Intel chips, do not stand a chance against the AMD processor in Multi or Single Core tests. To be fair, these devices are not equipped with the fastest processors. But the results remain similar when looking at some (significantly more expensive) mobile workstations such as the Dell Precision 5560 or the ThinkPad P1 G4 (the high-end version with Vapor Chamber) equipped with the Intel Core i7-11850H. There are implementations of the Core i7-11800H that provide even more performance (in some gaming laptops, for example), but only combined with very high levels of power consumption (~100 Watt in the case of the Alienware x17). All this illustrates the notable improvement in efficiency of the current AMD chips and the fact that the MateBook 16 can even keep up with models of a much higher price range.
When running on battery, the processor consumes 54 Watt for a few seconds and is then limited to 35 Watt. This only leads to a loss of around 10 percent in the Multi Core test (1793 points in CBR15 Multi). For more information on CPU benchmarks, please visit our Tech page.
