One of Intel’s latest mobile CPUs, the Intel Core i9-13980HX, has only been out in the wild since yesterday, and it’s already regained its number one spot in PassMark’s mobile CPU benchmark ranking.
As revealed Traffic sign testing and reporting Cards videoThe Core i9-13980HX scored 54,483 points, while the Core i9-13900HX scored 51,739 points. The two Raptor Lake-HX CPUs (which has 24 cores and a TDP of 55W) outperform the 12-core AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX Zen 4, putting the latter in third place on the benchmark list, and securing Intel’s place as the leader in Manufacture of mobile processors.
According to the data, we can conclude that Raptor Lake-HX is between 9 and 14% faster than the 7845HX in single-threaded tests and at least 11% faster in multi-core performance. However, AMD plans to use the 16-core Ryzen 9 7945HX processor as revealed during its tenure. Keynote address at CES 2023which will reduce this gap, especially since the Intel Core i9-13980HX has only eight performance cores, with 16 efficiency cores to support these cores.
AMD doesn’t use a BIG LITTLE architecture, so the Ryzen 9 7945HX’s 16 cores will all run at full speed.
What does this mean for AMD?
These PassMark benchmarks are great at what they reveal about Raptor Lake-HX mobile CPUs, and it’ll be interesting to see how it fares on more mainstream benchmarks like CPU-Z Validator and Geekbench.
If these tests are favorable enough, they can honestly position these two processors as some of the best on the market, portable or otherwise. And even with AMD’s 16-core 7945HX, it might not be enough to match, let alone surpass, Raptor Lake’s chips.
Most likely the only way AMD can win this matchup is by pricing laptops that use its chips, but that’s up to those brands. Although there is a cost difference between Intel laptops and AMD laptops, it is certainly possible.
