CPU benchmarks

The Ryzen 9 5900HX showed its opponent how it’s done, by performing 28% better in the 3D Rendering test with Cinebench 20. In the Adobe Photoshop benchmark, which tests the processors’ 2D Rendering capabilities, the Ryzen was once again faster, finishing it with a half a second lead.

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

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


To conclude, the Ryzen 9 5900HX put its performance on display and used the Core i7-10875H as its personal punching bag, as it showed 28% higher performance in 3D Rendering and had a half a second lead in 2D Rendering. However, while the 3D Rendering scores were quite noticeable, the Photoshop ones were much less so. This means that if your work consists of mainly Photoshop or image editing in general, and you can find a better deal on a laptop with this Intel CPU, you should just go ahead and buy it.
