[Comparison] Intel Core i7-10870H vs AMD Ryzen 9 4900H – The Ryzen 9 is 12% better in 3D Rendering

CPU comparisons are our specialty, and today we have another one for you. While AMD has been on top in recent years, Intel is trying very hard to return stronger than ever and get back on top.

The fighter that Intel has chosen for today is the Core i7-10870H, which has an 8-core, 16-thread layout that is usually reserved for really high-end models. From AMD, we have the Ryzen 9 4900H, which has the same number of cores and threads, a lower boost speed, but a quite higher base speed. This should ensure a faster performance in prolonged tasks.

CPU benchmarks

In the 3D Rendering test with Cinebench 15, we saw the Ryzen 9 4900H score 12% higher, which is quite significant. The higher boost clock on the I7-10870H doesn’t really matter here, as 3D Rendering takes quite a lot of time to finish and the CPU can’t stay at that speed for a long time. This is why the higher base clock on the Ryzen 9 is better for a prolonged task.

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)

Conclusion

To summarize, the Ryzen 9 4900H performed 12% better in 3D Rendering, which is helped further by its higher base clock that allows it to maintain a high level of performance even after a prolonged time under heavy load. This makes the Ryzen 9 4900H the winner in this comparison, and in general, Ryzen processors have performed better in prolonged heavy resource tasks. Intel is still to find a way to restore their former glory.
