During CES this year AMD revealed their latest addition to the Ryzen 7 lineup. The Ryzen 7 4800H is a high-end processor designed for gaming enthusiasts. We’ve put it through its paces to see how it compares to the Intel Core i7-10875H.
Asus TUF Gaming A15 comes with a 15-inch 1080p display, 16GB DDR4 memory, and AMD Ryzen 7 4800H CPU. This is a mid-range gaming laptop that is widely available in the US.
The Ryzen 7 4800H is an 8-core, 4.2-GHz CPU with a Vega 7 graphics processor. The CPU is manufactured on a 7nm TSMC process. The processor has a 54 W TDP and supports DDR4-4266 memory. It has an 8-MB L3 cache. The processor supports thread-doubling SMT technology. It is also compatible with the AMD Socket FP6 processor.
AMD’s latest mobile processors are based on the Zen 2 CPU architecture. The platform is designed to deliver improved IPC and multiple optimizations. Among these are a Vega GPU implementation and an improved IPC performance-per-watt figure. The processor is also aimed at lower 35 W TDP SKUs.
The Ryzen 7 4800H can perform at 4.2 GHz using Turbo Core technology. It also comes with a locked multiplier. This results in a performance increase of 20-40% over the competition. The price is also reasonable.
The Ryzen 7 4800H CPU is based on the latest generation CPU architecture. It supports DDR4-4266 memory, 8-MB L3 cache, and Vega 7 graphics. The CPU has a base clock speed of 2.9 GHz and a boost clock speed of 4.2 GHz.
Comparing it to Intel’s Core i7-10875H
Compared to Intel’s Core i7-10875H, AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800h is much more powerful. It offers excellent performance for multicore and multi-threaded workloads. It also provides good gaming performance.
The Ryzen 7 4800h features eight Zen 2 cores. The processor also features a Vega series integrated GPU. AMD’s “Infinity Fabric” interconnect offers higher bandwidth communication between cores. It also runs cooler. It supports thread-doubling SMT technology, which increases multicore performance. The CPU has 8 MB of L3 cache.
The Ryzen 7 4800h uses 45 W TDP. It has a base frequency of 2.9 GHz and a boost frequency of 4.2 GHz. Both the Ryzen 7 4800h and the Core i7-10875H are compatible with power supply units. The CPUs are based on the 7 nm process.
The Intel Core i7-10875H has a maximum turbo frequency of 5.1 GHz. It also features a multiplier lock state and a single-core max boost of 5.10 GHz. In some tests, single-thread performance is up to 30% better than the Ryzen 7 4800h.
The Intel Core i7-10875H is built in India. It has a base frequency of 2.3 GHz and a turbo frequency of 5.1 GHz. It has a total of eight cores and 16 threads. It also supports the maximum number of PCIe lanes. It has a maximum memory of 128 GB.
ASUS ROG Strix G17 (2022)
Asus ROG Strix G17 (2022) is a mid-tier gaming laptop built on AMD hardware. It is available in 16 SKUs with display options ranging from 144 Hz FHD to 165 Hz QHD. The Strix G17 offers the same graphics performance as the Scar 17 but has a more affordable price.
The Strix G17 offers a solid-performance 17-inch laptop for everyday multitasking and video streaming. Although it lacks some of the gimmicks found on the Scar 17 (like a removable ROG cap behind the screen and a lightbar under the screen), it has the same basic features. The battery is large and offers a great amount of battery life for a gaming laptop.
The keyboard is a standard rubber-dome keyboard. It has a Numpad, which is great for games. The Strix G17 also comes with a GC21 camera for video chats. The audio is punchy and pleasant to listen to.
The battery of the Strix G17 is large and offers a great amount of time to play games or watch videos. It lasts up to 82 minutes when playing games and 13 hours and 20 minutes when web browsing. The battery can charge from 0% to 50% in approximately 34 minutes.
The Strix G17 comes with a low-profile 100W power delivery adapter. It also comes with an underflow light bar that can be customized according to the user’s preferences.
