AMD Ryzen 7 5700U Zen 2 APU Benchmarks:

AMD’s Robert Hallock & Frank Azor Talk AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs & AM5 Platform Features: 170W Socket Power Limits, 5.5 GHz Stock Clock Speeds, Smart Access Storage & More

In terms of CPU performance, the Ryzen 7 5700U managed to score up to 1172 points in the single and 6595 points in the multi-core tests within Geekbench 5 (via TUM_APISAK). The second Ryzen 7 submission shows a lower score of 1111 single and 6099 multi-core points. Both systems are based on the same specs & APU and will be part of the new HP Pavilion 15 series which launches early next year around CES 2021.

The Compute performance for the Vega graphics was also tested and reported a score of 17,507 points in Vulkan and around 150,000 points under OpenCL. Based on the results obtained within Geekbench, the AMD Ryzen 7 5700U looks to be slightly faster than the Ryzen 7 4800U while the graphics side is mostly similar. We can expect the Ryzen 7 5700U laptops to carry a slightly higher price than the Ryzen 7 4700U but still lower than the Ryzen 7 4800U which would make for a great performance/$ proposition over its Ryzen 4000 based precessors.

The Renoir Refresh Ryzen 7 5700U APU has already been listed within Acer's upcoming Aspire A515 notebook which launches around January-February 2021. We will definitely be getting more info on the lineup by CES 2021 which is two months from now.
