Intel 1st Gen Core Ultra 5 is Nearly as Fast as the AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS in Leaked Benchmarks

Intel’s 1st Gen Gen Core Ultra processors are set to launch in the coming days. A leaked benchmark of the Core Ultra 5 125H indicates that the midrange offerings may be the best Intel has had for over a decade. The synthetic benchmarks of the 125H are almost the same as the AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS, with the graphics tests being higher despite the lower produce skew.

In the Cinebench R20 “nT” benchmark, the 1st Gen Core Ultra 5 125H is only 10% slower than the Ryzen 7 7840HS, with 5690 points versus 6309 points on the latter. We see a similar delta in R23 “nT” where the 125H nets 14,771 points versus 16,473 on the 7840HS. The graphics benchmarks wholeheartedly favor Meteor Lake, with double-digit leads over AMD’s Phoenix Point offerings.

In TimeSpy, the 1st Gen Core Ultra 5 125H scores 3,548 points, up from 3,007 points on the Ryzen 7 7840HS and a paltry 1,530 points on the Core i5-13500H. We’re looking at an 18% lead for the Core Ultra 5 125H despite being the lowest-end chip of the bunch.

FireStrike nets similar numbers, granting the Core Ultra 5 125H a 12% lead over the Ryzen 7 7840HS. The former scored 9,095 points, up from 8,543 points for the latter. Meanwhile, the Core i5-13500H scores only 5,303 points in the same rendering test.
