Intel 10th Gen Comet Lake-H Clashes With AMD Ryzen 4000 in New Benchmarks


Intel finally announced the 10th Generation Comet Lake-H processors for mobile devices today. Notebookcheck has the scoop on what you can expect from the new 14nm processors in terms of performance.

These new chips rock the Comet Lake-H microarchitecture, which is on Intel’s 14nm process node.AMD Ryzen 4000-series (codename Renoir), on the other hand, is based off AMD’s Zen 2 microarchitecture and the 7nm process node from TSMC. From a technological standpoint, AMD’s offerings are more modern.

Being H-series parts, Comet Lake-H and Renoir processors are mobile-friendly with TDP (thermal design power) ratings of 45W. In AMD’s case, the chipmaker has a special HS-series branch that’s optimized for 35W. Both chipmakers have processors that max out at eight cores and 16 threads. However, the Comet Lake-H portfolio starts at four cores, while the Ryzen 4000 lineup starts at six cores.
