The AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX is an octa-core processor based on AMD’s current Zen 3 architecture. The cores clock at a frequency of 3.3 to 4.6 GHz and support two simultaneous threads each and, therefore, a total of 16 threads. So far, we only have the Asus Zephyrus Duo G15 available as a comparison device with the same CPU; it performed much more consistently and also between 5 to 10% better in the test. Even with the lowest score of 1,970 points, our test device is still far above the Intel competition in the Cinebench loop test, with the latter being at least 20% slower in the same test.
CPU performance is slightly limited on battery power. The Cinebench multi-thread scores are a good 10% lower on battery power than when plugged in.
In the application-based benchmarks, the Ryzen 9 5900HX always takes one of the front places in both the single and multi-core benchmarks and consequently meets the high expectations for a cutting-edge AMD processor.
