The processors are very different, but they can be compared.

Ryzen 4000’s high-performance mobile APUs are gradually entering the market, and with them, in general, everything is clear. But most users are still more interested in energy-efficient models of this line. It is still unclear when they will enter the market – AMD is in no hurry to release them for some reason – however, a rather voluminous test of the APU Ryzen 5 4500U in the Lenovo Ideapad 5 laptop appeared on the Web.

What the inexpensive Ryzen 5 4500U is capable of in comparison with the top-end Core i7-1065G7

First, let’s recall what a processor is. This is a six-core APU without SMT support with frequencies of 2.3-4.0 GHz and Vega 6 GPU. As for the laptop, it comes in different configurations, but with such a processor a mobile PC in the USA costs $ 655.

So what is Ryzen 5 4500U capable of?

As you can see, this is a fairly productive solution. In Geekbench, AMD’s new product is at the level of Core i7-1065G7, and in the Cinebench R20, the Intel processor remains far behind. At the same time, laptops with Core i7-1065G7 are clearly more expensive than with Ryzen 5 4500U.

In Firestrike, processors are approximately equal, both in terms of “processor” and “graphic” points. At the same time, recall that G7 is Intel’s top-end graphics core at the moment, while Vega 6 is the average AMD offer between Vega 4 and Vega 8.

Also worth noting is significantly lower power consumption and AMD processor heating. True, it is worth noting that this is in Intelligent Cooling mode, but it is optimal since Extreme Performance mode significantly increases power consumption (just to the level of Core i7-1065G7) and heating, but performance does not increase significantly.

Of course, there are not so many tests here, but on the whole, it can already be said that at a fairly modest price, the Ryzen 5 4500U offers performance comparable to the top-end Core i7-1065G7. It remains to wait for the mass appearance of such laptops on sale.
