Upcoming AMD Ryzen 7 5700U brings good improvement in multi-core benchmarks with SMT enabled
AMD will be launching next-gen Ryzen 5000U processors at CES 2021. Essentially AMD will be mixing things up for their upcoming lineup and use both of their Zen 2 and Zen 3 architectures. These Renoir refresh APUs have been called Lucienne APUs with Zen 2 cores and the upcoming Ryzen 7 5700U has been spotted quite number of times now. The APU has been spotted on Geekbench running on Asus VivoBookn laptops to even HP Pavilions and even on Acer Swift series, now its been spotted on Xiaomi’s RedmiBook Pro 14S.
The score that this upcoming laptop puts out on Geekbench with the Ryzen 5700U, an 8 core 16 threaded APU is by far the best we have seen. It scores a massive 6,431 points in multi-core tests making it much faster than its predecessor Ryzen 7 4700U. The average territory should be in that 5000 range for any Ryzen 7 4700U powered laptop out there. This makes the new Ryzen 7 5700U almost 25% faster in the multi-core tests because of the extra 8 threads. While there’s not much difference in single core tests posting 1182 points against the 1137 points by its predecessor.
MSI Demonstrates AMD Smart Access Memory Running on AMD Ryzen 3000 & Ryzen 4000G CPUs With NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 GPUs
MSI has just provided us with the latest screenshots of their X570 motherboards supporting AMD Smart Access Memory on Ryzen 3000 'Matisse' and Ryzen 4000G 'Renoir' CPUs with NVIDIA's RTX 30 series graphics cards. MSI, will be offering even wider support for SAM on Ryzen 3000 and Ryzen 4000G CPUs. The screenshots received show the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Matisse and the Ryzen 4700G Renoir CPUs supporting Smart Access Memory on the MSI X570 Unify motherboard and the test platform included NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 GPUs.

Intel Core i9-11900K appeared on Ashes of Singularity yet again
Intel’s 11th gen CPUs have been making an appearance on Ashes of Singularity’s benchmarking platform. It has again appeared on the benchmark website, but it has been paired with GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. According to the new entries on the benchmark site, the Core i9-11900K scores around 6,075 points with a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti while running with 32 GB of RAM. It also managed to achieve a framerate of 61.9 FPS on the Crazy_1080p preset running the DirectX 12 preset.
From past rumors and leaks that the Core i9-11900K will feature eight cores, a single-core boost clock of 5.3 GHz, and an all-core boost of 4.8 GHz. The processors belonging to the Rocket Lake-S lineup will sport 4 MB less L3 cache than its Comet Lake-S predecessor. The Core i9-11900K managed to outscore the Ryzen 9 5950X by a healthy margin. The Ryzen 9 5950X loses out by nearly 500 points and 5 FPS in the same preset, though in AMD’s defense, the 5950X was paired with only 16 GB of RAM, rather than 32 GB in the case of Intel.
ASUS, MSI set to enable Smart Access Memory support for Ryzen 1000, Ryzen 3000 configurations, with NVIDIA Ampere also supported
Both ASUS and MSI appear to be actively working on bringing SAM (Smart Access Memory) support to a wider range of hardware configurations than AMD. ASUS motherboard user u/Merich98 claimed to have gotten SAM working on a Ryzen 7 1700 setup. Testing with Doom Eternal showed negligible performance improvements. However, Doom didn't benefit from SAM even when running in a Ryzen 5000 configuration.
Separately, MSI appears to have shared screenshots of SAM working on a Ryzen 3000/GeForce RTX 3080 setup with WCCFTech. This indicates that official BIOS support could arrive soon for MSI users, alongside driver-level support for owners of NVIDIA Ampere graphics cards.
During the Big Navi launch, AMD showcased SAM as a performance-boosting solution for Ryzen 5000/Big Navi setups where the CPU could address all the VRAM on the GPU. During the announcement, it was mentioned that SAM was made possible because of synergies specific to Big Navi and Ryzen 5000, though the technology was based on an underlying PCIe feature called Resizable BAR.
AMD’s SAM now supported by 1st gen Ryzen processors
ASUS enabling SAM support for even the 1st generation Ryzen CPUs. AMD Smart Access Memory was enabled on an AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU running on ASUS B450-PLUS motherboard. The board was running the latest 2409 BIOS, which was released in early December. The user who successfully managed to enable SAM on his ASUS motherboard, tested the performance in Doom Eternal. Doom Eternal was tested at 1080p at Ultra preset. The results are as follows:

AMD Ryzen 5000 benchmark leak has us more excited than ever for 2021 gaming laptops
The leaked benchmarks, from the ever-vigilant @TUM_APISAK, give us a look at the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H on Geekbench 5.3. The results were specifically from an Acer Nitro AN515-45 with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H with 16GB of RAM. The single-core score was 1,475 and the multi-core was 7,630.
Remembering that the results are averaged and with so few samples for the Ryzen 7 5800H, things could certainly be skewed slightly regardless, we still get a general idea of where the new high-end Ryzen 5000 mobile CPU will fall. Looking first to how it compares against the Ryzen 7 4800H, it bests it by an impressive 35% on single-core and a still-solid 15% on multi-core, with nearly identical results when compared to the Ryzen 7 4800HS (36%, 13%).
As you can see, it also performed well against a number of its Intel counterparts, but one other Intel chip that it stood up to was the Core i9-10900K, beating its single-core by about 5%. What makes this particularly notable is that it is a 35W mobile CPU being compared to a 125W desktop CPU.
