ASUS TUF GAMING A15
Not yet out of the lab, the Asus TUF Gaming A15 equipped with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card has passed its first tests. Here are the results concerning its AMD processor and Zen 3 architecture.
The Asus TUF Gaming A15 laptop equipped with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor has already undergone all the tests dedicated to the processor. In order to give you a first overview of the results we have compared the Ryzen 7 5800H which benefits from the Zen 3 architecture, to its predecessor the Ryzen 7 4800H equipped with the Zen 2 architecture.
We compared it to the Acer Nitro 5 equipped with the Ryzen 7 4800H, and as they are different laptops (chassis, cooling system, performance profile), the results are not to be taken literally, but they allow us to have an idea of the performance gain between these two processor generations.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800H is a CPU equipped with 8 cores and 16 threads with a base frequency of 3.2 GHz and a boost to 4.4 GHz. It has a cache (L2 + L3) of 20 MB and a TDP of 45 W. On the other hand, the Ryzen 7 4800H has slightly lower frequencies: 2.9 GHz and 4.2 GHz in boost, a cache (L2 + L3) of 12 MB. The number of cores, the engraving finesse (7 nm) and the TDP are identical.
After a test of the TUF Gaming A15 with two different power management profiles, here are the results:
Performance and Turbo – the latter allows you to hold higher frequencies in return for stronger ventilation. As we noticed when we ran the Ryzen 9 5890HS in our lab, we see a 16% performance increase in favor of the AMD Zen 3. The Ryzen 7 5800H scores 126 on our performance index while the Ryzen 7 4800H scores 110.
A more detailed analysis of the results obtained by our Ryzen 7 4800H and 5800H reveals gains of up to 31% depending on the application. For example, in 3D rendering, the gains are 10% under Cinema 4D and 22% under Corona. In file compression, the gains are 8% with 7-Zip and 32% with WinRAR. In photo editing, the gain is 8% under Gimp. In video compression, we have an anomaly in Full HD probably caused by the memory used. But on the other hand, the gain in 4K is 15% in favor of Ryzen 7 5800H.
After these first results, there is no doubt that the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H is currently the reference for laptop processors dedicated to gaming. Intel’s answer with its 11th generation Core “Tiger Lake” processors is expected in the coming months.
