[Comparison] AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS vs AMD Ryzen 7 5800HS – good incremental improvement over last year

Efficiency is something that AMD has been known for in the last couple of years. Gone are the years of the old Bulldozer cores which drew power like crazy and didn’t perform optimally.

Now, even the high-powered H-series deliver pretty good battery life, resulting in gaming and productivity laptops that can last through a day of work. However, we also have the HS-series, which shaves off 10W of the TDP, which lowers the cooling needs, something ideal for more compact laptops, that still want to perform when it matters.

Today we are comparing the Ryzen 7 6800HS against the Ryzen 7 5800HS.

CPU benchmarks

The Zen 3+ architecture brings some sizeable improvements to the performance, but once again we see nothing groundbreaking. The Ryzen 7 6800HS scores 16% higher in Cinebench 20 and is nearly a second quicker in Photoshop.

Conclusion

The new Zen 3 CPUs are definitely worth considering, however, if you already have a decent device right now, we would advise either checking out Alder Lake and what they offer or waiting for the Zen 4 laptop SKUs, before committing to an upgrade. If you’re looking for the best value, the 5000H and HS-series will be ideal, since prices will be going down, while performance is still top-notch.
