While on the desktop front the time has almost arrived for the latest wave of news, especially in light of the announcement of the prices of the Ryzen 7000X3D, AMD is back in the spotlight for particularly interesting news on the notebook side.
In the mobility segment in recent years AMD has taken off more than a few pebblesdemonstrating all – or almost – the potential of TSMC’s advanced nodes and the incredible scalability of its architectures, but 2023 could be the harbinger of even more impressive successes, thanks to a generational leap that promises to be particularly steep.
To paint this scenario are the first benchmarks of Ryzen 9 7845HX on PassMark CPU Mark, which have appeared on the net in these hours and which show a gen-over-gen leap that is dangerously close to +90% compared to the best proposals of 2022 (the Ryzen 9 6900HX).
This new 12 Core and 24 Thread CPU is preparing to dominate the scene especially in the so-called desktop replacements and in general in the purely Enthusiast segment.
The points achieved by the 7845HX were 46,791, against 24,640 for the 6900HX. Scores in the same range Intel i9-12900HX of the last generation (waiting for the rival current generation presented in the context of CES 2023 during the reveal of Raptor Lake mobile), however, they speak of 35,628 points, for a decidedly large gap already at the debut (just under 25%), although these are only synthetic benchmarks.
The field test will then determine the winner, but these numbers are only the preamble to what could happen in the coming months, given that the mysterious AMD flagship will be 16-core on the same architecture.
