The initial test results of AMD’s Ryzen 7 7840HS “Phoenix” CPU, which is intended for mainstream laptops, have leaked online and demonstrate a pleasing improvement over its forerunner.
Phoenix Ryzen 7 CPUs are currently being previewed for the first time after AMD’s Ryzen 9 7940HS “Phoenix” CPU’s initial benchmark results were released yesterday. The Ryzen 7 7840HS, which features the recently released Zen 4 core architecture, is the CPU under test here. The processor has 8 cores and 16 threads, which is the most cores a Phoenix CPU can support. Apart from the architectural modifications, not much has changed in terms of the core configuration because the chip also contains 8 MB of L2 cache and 16 MB of L3 cache.
The AMD Ryzen 7045 Dragon Range series, which offers up to 16 cores and 32 threads with lots of cache, is for individuals who desire more cores and cache. The 3.8 GHz base and 5.1 GHz boost clocks of the Ryzen 7 7840HS CPU are marginally slower than those of the 7940HS. The CPU continues to use the 35–54W TDP design used in the Phoenix parts. The integrated GPU is an AMD Radeon 780M chip with 12 compute units and a 2.9 GHz clock speed. It is based on the RDNA 3 architecture.
The Cinebench R23 benchmark has been used to assess the chip’s performance. Now, it’s crucial to understand the type of laptop that was utilised, as well as its memory settings and thermal and power restrictions. However, information from leaker Golden Pig Upgrade at Bilibili has not been made public, so the ultimate CPU performance you receive will depend largely on the particular laptop you purchase.
The AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS CPU achieved scores in Cinebench R23 of 16854 on the multi-core test and about 1800 on the single-core test. Due to an incorrect listing of the single-core frequency, the single-core score will be higher than the multiplier ratio recommended by the benchmark. The CPU is roughly 15% faster than the fastest Rembrandt chip, the Ryzen 9 6980HX, and offers a 25% improvement in multi-core performance over its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 6800H. The processor outperforms or comes close to outperforming Intel’s 13th Gen Core i5 CPU offerings, and it also performs well against Intel’s last generation Core i7 components.
The Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix” APUs from AMD will be available in a variety of flavours and laptop configurations later this quarter. When the laptops enter the market in March of this year, these chips should still have all of their Radeon-only features including raytracing, FSR, RSR, and other technical support.
