    Phoronix: AMD Ryzen 5 5500U - Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu 21.04 Linux Benchmarks

    While yesterday was the Threadripper 3990X Windows 10 vs. Linux benchmarks, with recently picking up the $450 Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15 with Ryzen 5 5500U, prior to wiping the Windows 10 preload I ran some benchmarks to see how that default Microsoft Windows 10 Home installation compared to a fresh install of Ubuntu 21.04 for maximizing the performance potential of this budget six core / twelve thread laptop.

    Too bad this is a 5500u, which is only a refresh of the previous ryzen 4000 series (same silicon).
    the really interesting "cezanne" parts are 5400u, 5600u, 5800u with zen3 cores.

      Spec-wise, they look like either laptop clocked 4650G/4600G's with failed cache modules or leftover 4500U's with a GPU overclock. Either one of those could be repurposed into a 5500U.

      And if you have a 4000 series APU the Zen 3 ones really aren't that interesting. What I'd like to know is if we'll get a better-than-Vega APU on AM4. I'm curious if my 4650G system will be what it is until EOL or if I can get a meaningful upgrade or two before the next CPU socket comes out. The DDR4 limitations makes me think I won't get an upgrade or two.

        It's been known for a while that Zen3 is the last line for AM4, Zen4 will use a new socket. So you get at most 1 upgrade.
