AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX appears on Geekbench

At this year’s CES 2022 show, AMD released the Ryzen 6000 APUs. This Zen 3+ architecture product, code-named Rembrandt, is equipped with an RDNA 2 architecture core, supports USB 4, PCIe 4.0, and LPDDR5/DDR5 memory at the same time, and is manufactured using a 6nm process, and replaced with FP7 socket, configured with up to 8 cores and 16 threads, the highest frequency reached 5.0 GHz.
At the same time, the old rival Intel is aggressive, releasing the 12th generation Core mobile processor, two new chips, Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M. Both are equipped with a Performance Core based on the Golden Cove architecture and an Efficient Core based on the Gracemont architecture. From the perspective of Alder Lake-S on the desktop platform, the performance of the new generation of Core processors has been qualitatively improved.

Last year, AMD managed to gain a firm foothold in the high-end market of laptop platforms with its Ryzen 5000 APUs. Many people put a question whether AMD can resist Intel’s counterattack this year.

Recently, the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX appeared in the Geekbench benchmark, which belongs to the high-end model of the new generation of APUs.

It has 8 cores and 16 threads, the base clock is 3.3 GHz, the boost clock reaches 4.9 GHz, and it is equipped with an RDNA 2 architecture core, with a total of 12 CUs. The “HX” suffix means an unlocked version, and the OEM’s allocation of its TDP affects the final performance.

Geekbench benchmark results show that the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX scored 1593 in the single-core benchmark and 10151 in the multi-core benchmark, which is 12% and 33% higher than the Zen 3 architecture Ryzen 9 5900HX codenamed Cezanne, respectively. Although compared with its own products, it has been significantly improved, compared with Intel Core i9-12900H (14 cores and 20 threads), it is not enough. The Core i9-12900H’s single-core benchmark scores are 7% to 21% higher than the Ryzen 9 6900HX’s, and the multi-core benchmark scores are 37% to 42% higher.
