First up is a look at how these five laptop processors compare with bioinformatics workloads, including Himeno, MrBayes, and MAFFT. The AMD Ryzen CPUs came out ahead of all the Intel CPUs tested, including the Core i7 9750H that is the 6-core / 12-thread Coffee Lake processor... Impressive seeing even the 4500U having a slight edge over the 9750H in these real-world workloads.

When it comes to the overall web browser performance with Firefox, the performance overall is quite close between the different processors/laptops. While we run a few WebAssembly tests, most of the JavaScript and DOM benchmarks aren't making use of extensive multi-threading or other advanced CPU instruction set capabilities to really differentiate between these modern CPUs in most workloads. In this case, the Core i7 9750H had a slight lead over the other CPUs.

The Core i7 9750H did have a slight lead as well in the code compilation benchmarks, consisting of compiling Apache, PHP, the Linux kernel, GDB, LLVM, FFmpeg, MPlayer, and Build2. The Ryzen 7 4700U wasn't far behind and the Ryzen 5 4500U showing remained strong. One of the areas where Hyper Threading still tends to be beneficial is in code compilation with multiple parallel jobs so not at all surprising to see the 12-thread 9750H have a slight lead here. Unfortunately I don't have any of the Ryzen 4000 16-thread CPUs for testing.

Compression tests with 7-Zip, LZbench, and Blosc saw the Intel Coffee Lake and Whiskey Lake parts competing against the Renoir processors while Ice Lake remains quite slow.

When it comes to the graphics/gaming tests, the AMD Renoir processors with their Vega integrated graphics allow for much better performance particularly compared to Intel Gen9 graphics. The Ice Lake Gen11 graphics do slightly better but the i7-1065G7 is still no match for AMD's 7nm parts.
