A fresh batch of benchmark results ostensibly hints at AMD’s Ryzen 4900HS offering better performance over the existing Ryzen 3700X and, more surprisingly, the Ryzen 9 3950X.
The benchmarks were picked up by Twitter user Tum Apisak, sourced from UserBenchmark, which naturally raises some questions as to their credibility. UserBenchmark justifiably raises eyebrows as the site is often leveled with complaints about the accuracy of the results and what is widely considered less than ideal scoring criteria. As such, we recommend taking all this with a heavy dose of skepticism.
The results see the AMD Ryzen 4900HS fitted in an ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop. Once again, take these with a pinch of salt, but the AMD Ryzen 4900HS recorded an average bench of 96.7% compared to 91.7% for the Ryzen 3700X, and 94.1% for the Ryzen 9 3950X.
In core tests, the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS hit 140 points in two-core tests, 276 in two-core tests, 546 points in four-core tests, and 1,081 in eight-core tests. While the difference wasn’t massive (around 30 or so points at best) to the other two AMD chips, they beat them outright.
The Ryzen 9 4900HS and Ryzen 7 3700X have eight cores and sixteen threads, but 35 W, and 65 W, which would make this all very intriguing, but there are too many glaring issues.
The Ryzen 9 3950X results are a little harder to compare given the chip has sixteen-cores and 105 W TDP. The comparison isn’t, therefore, exactly harnessing the full power of the Ryzen 3950X and has little value.
Further spoiling the fun, are similar Geekbench results using the exact same ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop that see the Ryzen 7 3700X largely outperform the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS. In that benchmark, both single-core and multi-core results saw the Ryzen 7 3700X pummel the Ryzen 9 4900HS into the ground.
We, therefore, estimate that the results are little too good to be true, and we’ll need some more conclusive evidence before we say for certain that AMD’s Ryzen 4900HS is as powerful as UserBenchmark suggests.
