Let’s get started with AMD, so we’ve known for a while that the company is about to release their New APU’s for desktop aka Renoir. And while there are over 20 different variants of AMD’s next gen chips, we only have benchmarks for 3 of them. Technically 6 if you count the pro variants since they are essentially the same chips at stock. So let’s take a look at the performance. Starting at the top we have the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G which once again, has the same specs as the non-pro 4700G. Just to refresh your memory, its an 8 core APU with 8 Vega compute units clocked at 2,1Ghz. In 3d mark Firestrike, the graphics score is 4301 points. When compared with the last generation’s 3400G that’s about 300 more points, or about 7.5% faster on the GPU side of things. If you were curious about the physics score which is CPU dependant, the 4700G absolutely crushes the 3400G for obvious reasons, it has twice the number of cores. Onto the next CPU and we have the Ryzen 5 4400G. This one is a 6 core APU. Honestly, this could have been the best choice among all the APU’s if it didn’t feature only 7 Compute units. Anyways those CU’s are clocked at 1.9Ghz. Lower than the 4700G, and this chip scores a whopping 4033 points in the Firestrike graphics test. Essentially, the Integrated graphics perform pretty much the same as the APU it’s supposed to replace, the 3400G. Personally, i think It’s Disappointing. I mean sure it has 6 cores, but come on, they could have at least clocked the graphics higher to beat its predecessor. And before we get into other improvements let’s look at the last APU, the Ryzen 3 4200G. A quad core cpu wth 6 vega compute units clocked at 1.7Ghz. It scores 3576 points in the firestrike graphics test compared to about 3400 points for the 3200G it replaces. A very small improvement. At least, when it comes to the physics test, it can match the 3400G since they are both quad cores.
