[Comparison] AMD Ryzen 7 6800H vs AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX – Zen 3+ is not that far ahead

These CPUs might as well be the same. Coming with the same core and thread count, along with very close base and boost clock speeds, it will be really difficult to recommend one over the other.

The only lead on paper that the newer Zen 3+ chip has is with the new RDNA 2 integrated graphics, but with a CPU of this caliber, there’s not a chance in hell that a laptop wouldn’t bring a dedicated powerful GPU. Without further ado, let’s see the performance difference between these two CPUs if there is even any.

Today we are comparing the Ryzen 7 6800H against the Ryzen 9 5900HX.

CPU benchmarks

Both CPUs are good performers, but the new Zen 3+ is inherently ahead due to its improved architecture, with a lead of 8% in Cinebench 20. The processors were even closer in Photoshop, with a difference of only 0.34 seconds.

Results are from the Cinebench 20 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

Conclusion

With no major gaps in performance between the two chips, we can’t necessarily recommend the Ryzen 7 6800H over the Ryzen 9 5900HX as you might not even necessarily feel the difference in real-life workloads. However, we don’t think that the Zen 3+ project is a failure, as we still haven’t explored the entirety of the lineup. The real gems in our opinion will be in the U-series, where the RDNA 2 integrated graphics and the power efficiency can be fully explored.
