AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7 4700G APU has been leaked online by a Facebook page, ITCooker. The chip is a part of the Ryzen 4000 APU family called ‘Renoir’ and is supposedly the final retail design. The page has also provided benchmarks that give a fairly accurate idea regarding its performance.
The 4700G will feature AMD’s Zen2 architecture based on the 7nm process. While it is based on the same 7nm node as the Ryzen 3000 processors, the chip features a different rigid design, unlike the chiplet design of the latter. Based on the screenshots provided, it will have 8 Cores/16 Threads along with 8MB of L3 cache. It will feature a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.5GHz. It will be compatible with the AM4 socket and has a power rating of 65W TDP.
The benchmark was done on an ASRock B500 Taichi motherboard using CPU-Z. Since graphics drivers aren’t available, only the CPU results are available. Speaking of graphics, the Ryzen 7 4700G packs quite a punch for an integrated GPU. It features 8 compute units and 512 cores clocked at 2100 MHz. Graphics benchmarks should become available soon as we near the launch of the APUs.
In the coming months, AMD will launch several of their ‘Renoir’ APUs featuring 4, 6, and 8 cores with both 35W and 65W TDP ratings. Like the Ryzen 3000 series, the APUs will support 3200MHz RAM natively, but the Vega iGPU would require a higher frequency RAM for enhanced performance. Both the B550 and X570 boards should help in getting more out of them.
In terms of pricing, expect the flagship 8 Core processors to be around $200-$250 and the budget 4 Core CPUs to be priced around $150-$200. The Renoir APUs are expected to launch next month and more details will become available soon.
