AMD will later this year rock the notebook world just as much as it did the desktop PC world with its new Ryzen Mobile APUs, something the company has teased for the last few months.

AMD's upcoming Ryzen Mobile APUs will be the first Zen-based APUs released by the company, which will rock Vega-based GPU technology and much longer battery life than previous APUs from AMD. We're told to expect over 50% more CPU performance, 40% more GPU performance, with 50% less power... pretty damn good numbers.

Fast forward to now, and we have the first benchmark leaks of the upcoming Raven Ridge-based Ryzen 5 2500U which scores 9723 in Geekbench 4.1.1's multi-core test, and 3625 on the single-threaded side. If we compare that against the previous-gen A12-9800B and its multi-core score of just 5115, we can see just how much of an improvement Ryzen Mobile is going to be over AMD's previous-gen APUs.

  • Ryzen 5 2500U (multi-core test) - 9723
  • A12-9800B (multi-core test) - 5115
  • Ryzen 5 2500U (single-core test) - 3625
  • A12-9800B (single-core test) - 2315

AMD will be releasing their new Raven Ridge-based Ryzen Mobile APUs later this year, and expect us to put them through their paces in the usual benchmarks and games. But will we be able to mine Monero coins on them, like The Pirate Bay is doing with users' CPUs?
