Now let’s take a look at its competitor – the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 which currently takes the first place in our Top Laptop CPU Ranking. This high-end desktop-grade CPU has also been implemented in gaming notebooks due to its relatively low TDP of 65W and decent thermals. Based on AMD’s new Zen architecture, the chip is manufactured through a 14nm node and features 8 cores with 16 threads. In addition, the base clock speed can reach up to 3.7 GHz (3.75 GHz with XFR feature (Extended Frequency Range)), while the maximum Turbo Clock speed is specified as 3.2 GHz. The memory controller supports 64GB of memory clocked at 1833 MHz or 32GB of DDR4-2400 or 2660 memory.

PERFORMANCE : 12664 (-3.8%)

Judging by the charts above, the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 in ASUS ROG GL702ZC shows better performance with around 36% when it comes to 3D rendering (tested with Cinebench 15) and Adobe Photoshop test. However, the chips take turns in the raw synthetic benchmarks (tested with Fritz) and the Intel Core i9-8950HK found in the Intel Core i9-8950HK Prototype laptop exceeds its opponent with around 17%.

Conclusion

In conclusion, we can say that the two processors we compared today deliver top-notch performance, but if we have to name a winner it would be the AMD representative. The difference is not that drastic so you should also take into consideration other criteria such as price, battery life, and GPU performance based on your priorities.
