AMD Ryzen 5 5600H "Cezanne" Processor Benchmarked, Crushes Renoir in Single Core and Multi Core Performance

With the launch of AMD's next-generation mobile processors just around the corner, with an expected launch date in the beginning of 2021 at the CES virtual event. The Cezanne lineup, as it is called, is based on AMD's latest Zen 3 core, which brings many IPC improvements, along with better frequency scaling thanks to the refined architecture design. Today, we get to see just how much the new Cezanne generation brings to the table thanks to the GeekBench 5 submission. In the test system, a Ryzen 5 5600H mobile processor was used, found inside of a Xiaomi Mi Notebook, paired with 16 GB of RAM.

As a reminder, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H is a six-core, twelve threaded processor. So you are wondering how the performance looks like. Well, in the single-core test, the Zen 3 enabled core has scored 1372 points, while the multi-threaded performance result equaled 5713 points. If we compare that to the last generation Zen 2 based "Renoir" design, the equivalent Ryzen 5 4600H processor, the new design is about 37% faster in single-threaded, and about 14% faster in multi-threaded workloads. We are waiting for the announcement to see the complete AMD Cezanne lineup and see the designs it will bring.

Mobile has come so far and it’s amazing to see the progress AMD has made. It’s quite astonishing to see them clawing through the mobile segment

I was hoping for a good performance increase considering the desktop 3000 vs 5000 series processors and to be honest, I'm not disappointing. I just wonder, what the power envelope these new mobile CPUs will have. Will it be the same as previous gen or maybe there will be even lower power products available.

They come in regular TDP 15-25W & then 35-45W for the H(S) variants. It'd be nice if the top end 5900h would slot in at 65W for the 2-3kg "desktop replacements" but doesn't look like AMD's targeting that spot for now!

I want an all AMD laptop. No good having Nvdia gpu in it. Either all the way red or stay blue and green. And a 2k laptop screen.

The 65W parts are the G series. I think for the 4000 series, AMD decided to limit the G Series for the OEM duo to the limited supplies. Maybe they will have some for consumers later or maybe they will just jump to the 5000G for consumers directly and skip the 4000G consumer release.

AMD didn't increased the TDP's of the ZEN3 parts on desktop, i don't see why they would do it on mobile...

Who said they will increase the TDP or even assume such a thing? I'm talking about, since the new CPUs perform so well and have higher IPC, maybe AMD will release a product line with even lower TDP for certain laptops which we haven't seen with the previous gen.

I been thinking actually, since the new CPUs have higher IPC maybe we will see product line in a up to 10W envelope. It is possible though.

I've extendly tested a 5600x. Could easily lock all cores to 4,6ghz at 1,16v while never exceeding 70w on a fpu/cache/memory CPU test. So I firmly believe on a 45w 6c/12t chip at 3,9ghz/4,0ghz all cores. That plus 3200mhz 18-18-18-42 Dimms Will provide great performance, high fps, good vídeo editing, all on a low power envelope without overheating and throttling issues. Wich is amazing.

Cant wait to see this kind of machines paired with a RTX 3050ti/3060 non ti or a low power RX 6600/6700.

HiDevolution will fix this problem I am sure, they will most likely put a 5600x in 45w eco mode on their custom made desktop replacement laptops. they have done it in past for desktop intel chips. of course that costs a pretty penny, so its a very niche market.

Manufacturers could've done this any time the past decade, even if performance was not great.

Problem is the diminishing returns. An average laptop draws about 10-15W of power excluding CPU/GPU - mostly the screen, speakers, wifi, RAM, fans, etc. Gets higher with 4K screens which manufacturers love shoehorning in.

At some point, an even lower power CPU/GPU just isn't making a worthwhile difference to the battery life, and apparently 15w is what the industry arrived at.

I know that but due to the fact that 5000 series is noticeably faster then 3000 , maybe the returns will not be as diminishing. That's what I'm thinking about. It would have been nice to get a considerably fast laptop with a processor up to 10W. I'd go with one like that.

Good but Intel has them cornered. Better integration within systems, more favourable relationships with OEMs, better power management (idle usage debacle that was pointed out on Ryzen) and better availability. Xe graphics has Vega beat and will be far stronger when Navi2 APUs emerge. I'd always consider Intel as the first option.

I hope this time lenovo will put amd chips in premium designs. The 5800hs looks very promising to me, 35w tdp insane performance

Go shill somewhere else. /smh

I am not really seeing any crushing going on here except Zen 2.

A cursory look at geekbench shows totally random sample of 1165G7, a 15-28W 4 core part and not the top sku, kills that 35-45W 5600H in single core by 10%+ and is within 10% or so in multi-core, despite having 33% fewer cores.

The 1186G7 running in the higher power 28W laptops just wipes it 4C Intel vs 6C AMD. Possibly that 5600H is engineering sample / buggy chipset.

Hopefully people can actually buy one...

AMD have had several brilliant CPU's that they simple marketed woefully. The 3900, 3300x and the Renoir chips. Add to the ridiculous launch of the 5000 series, AMD could do so much better.

Please, Asus, make a Zephyrus G14 G2 with these CPUs + RDNA 2 GPUs (and a slightly stronger chassis, that would be nice too). Pretty please. With sugar on top. I want one.

Remember that 15-28W Intel chips boost to 40-50W during short-term turbo, which is in full effect during a ST GeekBench run. The performance is nonetheless impressive, but they are using more power to get there, and can't sustain those levels of performance over time.

Yeah you know what you're right, Intel should really shut shop after this :slap:

AMAZING! They didnt use this PR to compare it directly to an Intel!

but 37%, makes me go damnmnmn.

Ice lake is indeed impressive, but from the few that notebookcheck has tested, its sustained performance is not much higher then coffee lake, the production designs are nowhere near as liberal with TDP limits. It REALLY needs those unsustainable 40w+TDPs to perform. Until intel gets power usage under control amd doesn’t have much to worry about.

Hardware Unboxed benchmarked the new ice lake chips at 15 and 28 watts, they lose a lot of performance when restrained.
Their single-core was better than zen 2 but i expect zen 3 to be better still. Multi-core was a no contest, with the 6 and 8-core zen parts wiping the floor with ice lake.

Not sure for topic but I see rumor in wikichip for next gen iGPU performance:
improved iGPUs for APU variants; navi integrated gpu with up to 3.4 TFLOPs FP32 (clock frequency unknown, at least 2 GHz).
Vega 8 on 2100 MHz is declared with 2.15 TFLOPs...In citate this is part of rumored characteristic of CPU & APU series with ZEN4 architecture, and yes i guess this APUs will need of ddr5 to support increased iGPU performance. Well if this is true, only ~13-15 months to APU with enough performance for 1080p gaming :) . With not more of medium settings?

The return of Vega 11?
