Architectural Differences

  1. Clock Speeds: The AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS operates at a base clock speed of 4000MHz, which can boost up to 5200MHz. In contrast, the Intel Core i9 13900H has a base clock speed of 1900MHz that can boost up to 5400MHz. These higher clock speeds in the Intel processor will translate to great boosts in performance coupled with its greater number of threads and cores.
  2. Cores Count: The AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS has 8 cores, while the Intel Core i9 13900H features 6 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores. This totals 16 threads for the Ryzen processor and 20 threads for the i9 13900H. This difference should make itself apparent in our multi-core performance tests.
  3. L3 Cache: The AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS has a smaller L3 cache of 16 MB, whereas the Intel Core i9 13900H features a larger L3 cache of 24 MB
  4. Processing Nodes: The AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS is based on the Zen 4 architecture and utilizes a 5nm manufacturing process. On the other hand, the Intel Core i9 13900H is based on the Intel Raptor Lake-H architecture and utilizes a 10nm process node. 
  5. Other Features: As discussed above, the Intel processor utilizes both efficiency and performance cores inspired by the ARM processors used in mobile phones. The big.LITTLE hybrid core architecture allows the 13900H to cram in more performance than the Ryzen 9 7940HS without sacrificing efficiency.

For a new mobile processor, thorough evaluation is key. Despite similar performance, disparities exist between the Core i9 13900H vs Ryzen 9 7940HS GPUs. Our comparison scrutinizes these differences and benchmarks their performance in relevant benchmarks.

Core i9 13900H Vs Ryzen 9 7940HS – Benchmarks

Having seen the difference in architecture between the Core i9 13900H vs Ryzen 9 7940HS, we will look at the performance of these processors in modern, demanding benchmarks in this part of the comparison.
