CPU benchmarks

Starting with the 3D Rendering benchmark with Cinebench 20, the Ryzen 7 5800H performed 42% faster. As for the 2D Rendering test with Photoshop, the Ryzen 7 was better once again, this time finishing the benchmark with a lead of 0.8 seconds.

Results are from the Cinebench R23 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

Results are from our Photoshop benchmark test (the lower the score, the better)


These results were expected. Still, a performance gap of around 40% is definitely worth the extra cash that you’ll spend if you decide to buy a Ryzen 7 5800H equipped device. However, we would advise looking at Intel’s offerings as well, as their Tiger Lake H processors have been killing it, delivering great 2D and 3D Rendering performance.
