The Ryzen 4000 Mobile, codenamed “Renoir,” was revealed on March 16, but at this point, it has just begun shipping to OEMs. Unfortunately, the impact of COVID-19 seems to have delayed the preparation of final product shipments for all OEMs, and the market launch is likely to be as late as April.
However, thanks to AMD, we have had the opportunity to test out the prototype of the ROG Zephyrus G14, which ASUS plans to launch, for a short period. Even though it is a prototype but it is enough to test the CPU performance of Ryzen 7 4800HS. I am going to cover an in-depth analysis of Ryzen 7 4800HS in Rog Zephyrus G14.
Ryzen 7 4800HS benchmark with ROG Zephyrus G14
Well, ROG Zephyrus G14 is a 14-inch Gaming Notebook introduced by ASUS. It was also exhibited at the February briefing of the company. There are two variants of the laptop. It is equipped with either Ryzen 7 4800HS or Ryzen 9 4900HS and is equipped with up to 32GB DDR4 and 1TB Storage. Well, the ROG Zephyrus G14’s package is surprisingly clean and straightforward. However, the ROG logo changes its color depending on the angle of the box, creating a sense of premium feel in hand.
The screen is a narrow frame style, but it is a simple one without a camera. The keyboard that I tried this time is a modified English keyboard; the key itself is 15 mm; the fundamental pitch is 19 mm (Photo 05). Only the position of the “|” key is a bit strange, but this should be fine if you get used to it.
HDMI and USB Type-C, Audio out, and AC adapter terminal can be found on the left side, USB Type-A x 2 and USB Type-C x 1 on the right side, and a hole for Kensington lock is also available. By the way, if you open the screen, the rear edge of the central unit will float slightly, and the keyboard will have a slight angle, making it easier to hit the keys.
There is an air supply exhaust on the backside, and the outside air taken in from this is exhausted to both sides. If there is such an opening, especially when it is at max performance is full, you will hear the fan noise, but since it is a GPU with TDP 35W CPU + estimated TDP 80W GPU, this is expected for sure.
|ROG Zephyrus G14 Specifications|
|CPU||Ryzen 7 4800HS|
|Memory||Micron 8ATF1G64HZ-3G2J1 × 2
DDR4-3200 CL22 8GB × 2
|Video||GeForce RTX 2060 with MaxQ 6GB GDDR6
GeForce Driver 442.23 DCH
|Storage||Micron 2200 MVMe SSD 512GB (M.2 / PCIe 3.0 × 4)|
|OS||Windows 10 Home Japanese Version 1909 Build 18363.752|
By the way, the display result on CPU-Z looks is in pictures below. As shown here, the Ryzen 7 4800HS with TDP 35W is installed. L3 is 4MB x 2 8MB as per the previous model. The strange thing is that Southbridge appears as Carrizo FCH. Did they divert around the South Bridge?. The memory was equipped with Micron’s DDR4-3200 CL22 8GB SO-DIMM x 2.
Well, the CPU is recognized by the OS without any problem, but the problem is GPU. For the time being, two GPUs are correctly identified by the operating system, and CPU-Z also recognizes two GPUs, but at least at this time, the Radeon Driver doesn’t load built-in Ryzen 7 4800HS GPU. I tried to download the latest version of Radeon Driver from AMD site but did not recognize it.
So, if you try to display it with Radeon from a game etc. with a general-purpose driver, it will be slow, or it will be slow enough to think that you do not use GPU hardware in the first place. At present, the Vega 7 core with the built-in Radeon 7 4800HS is “only,” and it seems that it cannot be used to move anything.
