AMD Ryzen 7 7745HX Outperforms High-Priced 13th Gen Core i7 Mobile Processors in Gaming and Battery Life
Notebook makers are starting to take notice of AMD's high core-count Ryzen 7045HX series "Dragon Range" mobile processors, which offer performance and battery-life highly competitive to Intel's 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" processors, thanks to AMD's "Zen 4" architecture's unparalleled efficiency at lower power. The Ryzen 7 7745HX has a default TDP of 55 W and 8 cores/16 threads thanks to its single 5 nm "Zen 4" chiplet. There was a comparison between a 7745HX-powered laptop and another with a Core i7-13700HX 8P+8E in a review by the Chinese technology publication Golden Pig Upgrade. As compared to "Raptor Lake," which is hindered by aggressive power-management and an older 10 nm-class technology node, the reviewer noted that the 7745HX offered greater performance/Watt and gaming performance that either matched or surpassed it.
