Laptop CPU Benchmark and Review: AMD Ryzen 9 5980Hx (Ryzen 5000 Series)

AMD Ryzen 9 5980Hx CPU is part of the 5000 series/Cezanne Generation. The Ryzen 9 5980Hx is targeted towards high-performance gaming laptops. The eight-core processor is based on the Zen 3 microarchitecture with a base clock of 3.3 a boost clock of 4.8 GHz and 16 threads. Manufactured by TSMC with its 7 nm process. The TDP here according to AMD is 45 Watts but can vary anywhere from 35 to 54 watts. It also has support for new faster system memory of up to 3200 MHz DDR4 memory and 4266 MHz of LPDDR4 memory though this is great as AMD processors greatly benefit from fast memory and with 16 MB of L3 cache you can expect a very snappy experience. According to AMD, the Ryzen 5000 series chips based on Zen 3 have made significant leaps in IPC compared to the previous generation with an average IPC gain of 19 percent. When compared with the last-gen mobile flagship the 4900H the 5980Hx gets an increased base clock speed of 200MHz and 400 MHz of boost Clock alongside the IPC gains. The “X” here indicates overclocking support.
