AMD Ryzen 7 4700U Beats Intel Core i7-10710U

Even the mobile version of AMD’s Ryzen 7 4700U (designed for notebooks) is too much for Intel Core i7-10710U to handle.

Taken from Notebookcheck … AMD announced the Zen 2-based Ryzen 4000 APU series at CES 2020 and earned quite a praise for the purported performance improvements, especially against the Intel Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7. Earlier this week, a Geekbench listing surfaced online showing the Ryzen 7 4700U posting some impressive scores.

According to the Geekbench listing, the Ryzen 7 4700U was shown to score 4,910 in single-core and 21,693 in multi-core. The APU looks to have been tested in a Lenovo laptop with a base clock of 2 GHz and a boost clock of 4.19 GHz.

Do note that a single Geekbench record does not really tell the whole story as a range of scores are possible depending on the laptop’s configuration and thermals. Still, a quick comparison can be done with the highest scores from Intel’s 15W offerings for perspective’s sake. The Core i7-1065G7 scores about 5752 points in single-core and about 18,772 points in multi-core in Geekbench 4. The Comet Lake-U Core i7-10710U, on the other hand, scores about 5,366 in single-core and 22,182 in multi-core. Taking these into account, the Ryzen 7 4700U’s score looks to be pretty much on par with Intel’s 15W offerings.

There’s another important aspect to keep in mind here. The Ryzen 7 4700U does not feature simultaneous multithreading (SMT) while the competing offerings from Intel support HyperThreading. Although the Ryzen has the advantage of a higher core count among the three, it is evident that AMD has invested resources to make Ryzen mobile finally more competitive, and clearly a huge step-up from the likes of the Ryzen 7 3700U.
