Ryzen AI 9 370 is as Fast as Desktop Ryzen 9 7900X and iGPU equivalent to 50W RTX 3050

The AMD Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 APU has demonstrated impressive performance gains in recent benchmarks, outpacing its predecessors and rivaling some of the desktop processors. The benchmarks, conducted by GPD for their upcoming DUO laptop, reveal substantial improvements in both CPU and GPU capabilities.

The GPD DUO laptop, which features dual 13.3″ displays, will utilize the AMD Ryzen AI 9 HX 370, the most advanced APU in the Strix Point family to date. This APU boasts 12 Zen 4 cores, 24 threads, a combined 36 MB cache (24 MB L3 + 12 MB L2), and clock speeds ranging from a 2 GHz base to a 5.1 GHz boost. Additionally, it offers a configurable TDP ranging from 15W to 54W.

The integrated GPU, a Radeon 890M based on RDNA 3.5 architecture, includes 16 compute units clocked at 2900 MHz. This APU also features an XDNA 2 “Ryzen AI” NPU, delivering up to 50 AI TOPS and 80 platform TOPS, enhancing its AI processing capabilities.

Benchmark Performance

In the Cinebench 2024 benchmark, the Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 scored 124 points in single-core and 1525 points in multi-core tests. Remarkably, its single-core performance matches the Ryzen 9 7950X, which has a higher boost clock of 5.7 GHz compared to the 5.1 GHz of the HX 370. In multi-threaded performance, the HX 370 surpasses the Ryzen 9 5950X, despite the latter having 33% more cores (16 vs. 12).
