It's not long ago that AMD introduced its Ryzen 4000 processor for laptops at CES 2020, and while Team Red has made great promises in terms of their performance, we are seeing some leaks that really put things into that correct perspective.
Well-known leaker TUM_APISAK has posted some 3DMark Physics results on Twitter, and if there are indications, the AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile chips are not much slower than the best processors for desktop PCs.

Typically, 3DMark is a program for testing graphics and gaming performance, but each of the preset tests (like Sky Diver, Fire Strike, Time) Spy etc) have a physics test that puts the processor to the test. The rest of every run of 3DMark is relatively unimportant when it comes to measuring the strength of a processor.
If the Ryzen 7 4800H is within 14% of desktop class performance Ryzen 7 3700X is a big deal. What is actually more impressive than the 45 W chip that comes so close to the 65 W 3700X is the performance of the Ryzen 7 4800U. This chip, designed for the thinnest and lightest laptops, is only 33% slower than the 3700X and may have 77% less power than the desktop chip.
Nevertheless, it is important to note that these are leaked benchmarks, so we should take them with a massive grain of salt. Still, AMD claimed that the Ryzen 7 4800H is faster than the Intel Core i7-9700K, and if these leaks are an indication, this could actually be the case. Fortunately, with these processors coming to laptops in the coming months, we don't have to wait long to see if these claims contain water.
