Ryzen 9 7945HX “Dragon Range”, which is AMD’s top-of-the-line laptop CPU was recently put to test on Geekbench 5 and the results were quite impressive in terms of laptop performance.
AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 9 7945HX CPU is set to break records as the company’s fastest ever laptop chip. It boasts 16 cores and 32 threads, utilizing the 5nm Zen 4 core architecture and offering a base frequency of 2.5 GHz that can boost up to an impressive 5.4 GHz. The chip also features 80 MB of cache and has a TDP range of 55-75W+. Additionally, the entire Dragon Range lineup can be overclocked, allowing for even more power and performance. All in all, this promises to be a remarkable feat of engineering and a great option for high-performance laptops.
In terms of performance, the AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX CPU was recently put through its paces on the Geekbench 5 benchmark and yielded impressive results. Specifically, it scored 2127 points in single-core and 19,403 points in multi-core performance. The tests were conducted on an ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 laptop equipped with 32 GB of DDR5-4800 memory and set to performance mode.
The AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX’s single-core performance matches that of AMD’s high-end Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs, while its multi-core score exceeds that of the Ryzen 9 7900X desktop chip. It’s worth noting that the desktop chip has fewer cores (12 compared to the 16 in the Ryzen 9 7945HX) but it benefits from a higher TDP and all-core boost.
When it comes to mobile chips, power consumption and thermal performance are critical factors that can make or break a product. AMD appears to be ahead of the competition in this regard thanks to its Zen 4 core architecture, which offers improved efficiency. The first AMD Ryzen 7045 “Dragon Range” laptops are set to hit the market soon, so we can look forward to in-depth reviews to see how they perform in the real world.
