AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX, up to 45% faster in gaming than Intel
AMD has announced the official availability of its most advanced gaming processors to date within the Zen 4 architecture. And no, they are not the Ryzen 7000X3D, but the Ryzen 7045HX, which are included within the Dragon Range microarchitecture. There will be 4 models that we can buy where one of them stands out above the rest in performance, the Ryzen 9 7945HX. AMD wanted to show its potential and for this it has compared it with an i9-13950HX, taking an advantage of up to 45%.
It seems that, just as it is happening with the Ryzen 7000X3D on desktop, AMD is going to take the lead in gaming laptops with these Ryzen 7045HX. The best example of this is that the most powerful of its members and, logically, the one that consumes the most, is faster than the best Intel processors for gaming.
AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX, performance at the level of PC CPUs
Well yes, we already saw how this CPU “stuck” with the desktop ones and was really very close to some current top of the range. It will be the first time that the differences between platforms are so tight, being able to obtain a very even performance between the two.
But the best of all is that the competition is in style and that the differences will be quite tight, not according to what AMD shows. The data they have provided will be, as always happens in this company and in the rival, better than what will be seen in reviews, so take the data with tweezers.
In any case, the AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX marks a turning point in laptop gaming, since Lisa Su’s company ensures that this processor is a 10% faster on average
than the Intel Core i9-13950HX, marking as less difference a -4% in favor of the blue team, but +45% in favor of the red team in Rainbow Six Siege. All of course at 1080p with high settings.
really high prices
It is not something that surprises us at this point, since in this type of laptop the GPU is the key to the final price, in addition to other characteristics such as the processor itself, or the type of screen and its speed. For this reason, the first units that equip these Ryzen 7045HX have been seen, especially the higher-end ones with the AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX.
Among others, the models have arrived ASUS Zephyrus Duo 16, Strix SCAR and Strix G17where their prices vary, according to the minimum and maximum equipment, between $1,799 and $5,145. Let’s remember that the Ryzen 9 7945HX has 16 cores and 32 threads with a maximum frequency of 5.4GHz and a base of 2.5GHzin addition to 80 MB total cache between L2 and L3, as well as a 55W PTO which is configurable.
The minimum configuration that we can obtain from these laptops equips a RTX 4060 with 16GB of DDR5 and a 1TB NVMe SSD. In our country and already with taxes the prices will exceed the 2,000 euro without much problem, reaching almost to the 6,000 euros for the fastest models.
