Benchmarks for AMD's upcoming Raven Ridge APUs featuring the Zen CPU & Vega GPU microarchitectures have been spotted. The mobile Ryzen family of chips is expected to launch within the next couple of months, ahead of the holiday season. The particular Ryzen mobile APU sample that has been spotted is a mid range Ryzen 5 2500U chip, featuring 4 cores and support for 8 threads. This indicates that we will see even faster Ryzen 7 mobile parts. Back when Raven Ridge was made official in May AMD announced that Ryzen mobile will deliver up to 50% better CPU performance and up to 40% better GPU performance at half the power.
Based on the leaked performance figures we have on hand we have very little doubt that AMD has hit those goals. The Ryzen 5 2500U managed to score 9723 points in the multi-core portion of the Geekbench 4 test and 3625 points in the single threaded portion of the same test. By comparison, AMD's fastest mobile Bristol Ridge A12 9800B part scores nearly half the points in the multi-core portion of the test and more than 1200 points less in the single threaded portion of the test.
This translates to a 90% performance improvement in multi-threaded workloads and a 56% improvement in single-threaded performance. These figures vastly exceed what AMD had previously promised in May when Ryzen mobile was first announced.
