AMD Ryzen 7 5800U/5700U and 4800U laptops – specs, benchmarks and complete list

AMD are finally able to properly compete with Intel in the ultrabook space with their 2021 and 2020 Ryzen U hardware iterations, and not just in the budget segments, as in recent years.

The AMD Renoir platform launched in 2020 consists of Ryzen Mobile 4000 APUs that include a Zen 2 processor with up to 8Cores/16Threads and a Radeon Vega integrated GPU with up to 8 Compute Units. All these are combined within a designed 15W TDP package, with potentially higher TDP settings as long as allowed by the thermal implementation.

In 2021 AMD launched the updated Ryzen 5000 series of APUs, which, confusingly, consist of two broader types of processors: some are based on a marginally revised Zen2 architecture, as part of the Lucienne Zen2+ platform, and some are based on the newer Zen3 architecture, under the Cezanne platform. We’ll get into more details in a bit.

These are 10-25W base TDP designs, and the performance differs between each implementation based on the allocated TDP and overall design, so you should check out our detailed reviews for a more complete picture of what these AMD Ryzen 5000 U platforms are all about.

On top of that, here’s a recent selection of Ryzen U laptops available in your region, and we’ll also get cover the detailed list of all the Ryzen U options available in stores further down in this article.

But first, a quick insight into the 2021 Ryzen U 5000 platform, starting with a summarized specs-sheet of the different APU options and their important particularities.

On top of these, AMD also offer a subseries of Ryzen Pro U processors that will make their way into a handful of business notebooks, which we’ve covered in this separate article.

The Ryzen 7 5800U (8C/16T), Ryzen 5 5600U (6C/12T), and Ryzen 3 5400U (4C/8T) are part on the Cezanne platform and get Zen3-based processors with 4-8 Cores, HyperThreading, an upgraded memory controller and increased amount of L2+L3 cache memory, faster integrated Radeon Vega graphics, and a multitude of other IPC improvements and optimizations.

In comparison, the Ryzen 7 5700U (8C/16T), Ryzen 5 5500U (6C/12T), and Ryzen 3 5300U (4C/8T) are part of the Lucienne platform and get Zen2+ based processors, with only a handful of smaller optimizations over the Renoir Zen2 processors from 2020. The Lucienne architecture is better explained in this detailed article from Anandtech.

Before we move on and talk about some performance differences between these platforms, I’ll also add the specs sheet of the 2020 Renoir Ryzen 4000 lineup, so we can also include them in the comparison.

Moving into Lucienne, AMD ditched the non-hyperthreaded Ryzen 4000 processors, upped the Base and Turbo clocks speeds, updated the memory controller and per-core voltage control, and upgraded the iGPUs. And then, further moving into Cezanne translates in superior overall performance in both single and multi-thread CPUs tests, but also in productivity loads, as well as slight gains in graphics loads.

The numbers below came straight from AMD, so take them with a lump of salt. This first batch pitches all the Ryzen 5000 processors against their Ryzen 4000 counterparts in the Cinebench R20 single and multi-threaded CPU tests.

This next pictures shows the GPU performance gains moving from the 4800U to the 5800U, in 3DMark Timespy.

This next batch pitches the Ryzen 7 5800U (Cezanne – 8C/16T) against the Ryzen 7 4800U (Renoir – 8C/16T) and the Intel Core i7-1165G7 (Tiger Lake – 4C/8T) in browsing, productivity and graphics tests.

#gallery-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-2 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

And finally, this last set pitches the mid-tier Ryzen 5 5600U (Cezanne – 6C/12T) against the Ryzen 5 4600U (Renoir – 6C/12T) and the Intel Core i7-1165G7 (Tiger Lake – 4C/8T) in the same tests.

#gallery-3 { margin: auto; } #gallery-3 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-3 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-3 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

In broad lines, the AMD Ryzen 5000 and Intel Tiger Lake 11th-gen Core platforms are close in daily-productivity and single-core loads, they trade blows in GPU loads and games, and AMD wins across the board in the multi-threaded loads, where it benefits from the increased number of cores over the 4C Tiger Lake processors. The AMD Ryzen 4000 platforms fall a fair bit behind in all tests, but still beat the Intel options in multi-core tasks.

If you’re looking for more insights on the Ryzen platform’s performance in comparison to the Intel options you should check out the multitude of reviews available here on the site.

With that in mind, down below we’ve split the list of Ryzen U Mobile laptops into two sections: top tier products based on Ryzen 7 5800U/4800U APUs, and mid and budget-tier devices that can only be configured up to the Ryzen 7 5700U APU, with links towards our reviews and towards up-to-date configurations/prices at the time you’re reading this article. Most of those links are affiliate, so buying through them helps support our work here on Ultrabookreview.com.

The complete list of Ryzen 7 5800U/4800U and Ryzen 5 5600U ultrabooks

This section includes premium and mid-tier ultrabooks built on the Ryzen 7 5800U and 4800U platforms. Keep in mind that the availability of these top-specced 5800/4800 configurations is highly limited in most regions, but mid-tier Ryzen 5 5600U configurations of these laptops should be more widely available. For what is worth, though, you should also check out our article on the Ryzen 5000 HS platform if you’re looking for a powerful ultrabook.

That aside, the mentioned MSRP starting prices are usually for the Ryzen 5 or even the Ryzen 3 variants, with the Ryzen 8 models going for significantly more where available.
