AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX leaks in benchmark with lower performance than Intel Core i9-12900H
AMD launched its new APUs — that is, its processors with integrated graphics for notebooks — from the Ryzen 6000 series with Zen 3+ and RDNA 2 architectures during CES 2022. Even before they debuted on the market in February, we found out this Wednesday ( 26) Benchmark tests run with the Ryzen 9 6900HX.
Rumors corroborated by the benchmarks claim that the model in question has 8 cores and 16 threads, such that they operate at base frequencies of 3.3 GHz and reach a boost of 4.9 GHz. Geekbench 5 data shows that the new AMD processor is not able to outperform the Core i9-12900H , its similar rival developed by Intel.
The test was conducted with a notebook called the “Lenovo 82RG” with 32GB of RAM, which achieved maximum scores of 1,616 in single-core and 10,151 in multi-core, a performance 33% higher than the Ryzen 9 5900HX, its predecessor. Although the new APU clocks are more advantageous, the crucial factor for the improvement is due to the new 6 nanometer lithography.
