Graphics manufacturers are having a rather busy year. NVIDIA pushed out its GeForce GTX lineup earlier than expected. NVIDIA performed well on the market so far this year. It is worth noting that AMD and Nvidia are rival companies. AMD was rumored to launch its Ryzen chipset since the beginning of this year. The company seems close to its launch because the Processors have now been spotted on multiple benchmarking websites.

According to a report by Tech Radar, Ryzen mobile CPUs recently showed up on Geekbench. These are going to power most leading laptops scheduled to arrive on the market.

They will be paired up with the company’s proprietary Radeon Vega graphics cards.

Geekbench results

As noted by Liliputing, these Geekbench scores have actually turned out to be pretty good. AMD’s Ryzen 5 2500U processor was first put to test by the platform. The processor is based on quad-core and features an eight-thread CPU that runs at 2GHz.

The Ryzen 5 line-up managed to secure a score of 3,561 in the single-core test itself. As far as the multi-core test is concerned, the chipset managed to achieve a score as high as 9,421. These tests were carried out under Geekbench 4.1.1.

Intel vs AMD

Thanks to the fresh Geekbench scores, AMD’s latest innovation is now identified to be on par with Intel's Core i5-7200U.

The Core i5 set of processors come packed with the company’s proprietary Kaby Lake dual-core chipset, with an overclocking speed of 2.5GHz.

When comparing the single-core test of AMD and Intel’s products, they score just about the same. However, AMD’s Ryzen 5 2500U manages to score higher than Intel’s Core i5-7200U when it comes to the multi-core test.

AMD’s latest lineup secures an overall 3D Mark score of 3,799, a post on Reddit reads.

At the same time, Intel’s Core i7-7660U scored about 3,033. Thus, AMD surpasses Intel as far as 3D Mark 11 performance is concerned.

Since these results emerge from unverified sources, they cannot be completely believed. AMD is speculated to launch its Ryzen set of processors soon enough.

It will be known then whether they are actually worth what these tests claim.

Meanwhile, the company is also preparing for the launch of Ryzen Threadripper desktop CPUs. The lineup consists of three different variants, which are both non-X and non-XFR models. The list consists of Threadripper 1900, 1920, and 1950. The pricing information regarding these products is not known yet.
