AMD Ryzen 7 4700G Renoir desktop APU in the works? Maybe, but the one spotted on UserBenchmark was actually a cloaked Ryzen 7 3700X

A UserBenchmark record for an AMD Ryzen 7 4700G was discovered recently, and it sparked a flurry of excitement that AMD was finally preparing to unleash Renoir desktop APUs onto the market with surprisingly good specifications. However, it seems a mischievous user has been fiddling with regedit to cloak a Ryzen 7 3700X.

Regardless of personal opinions of the controversial UserBenchmark site, tech tipsters are constantly digging out interesting entries for enthusiasts to ponder over. Recently, momomo_us discovered a record for an AMD Ryzen 7 4700G that actually managed a very respectable performance and would certainly excite anyone waiting to get their hands on a Renoir desktop part that comes with an iGPU. The UserBenchmark record states a useful eight cores and 16 threads for the Ryzen 7 4700G.

A desktop APU like a potential AMD Ryzen 7 4700G would be a major step up from past offerings from Team Red. For instance, the previous generation desktop APU Ryzen 5 3400G only had four cores and eight threads. The UserBenchmark record for the supposed Ryzen 7 4700G states clock rates of 3.6-3.95 GHz and the scores across all the core tests are strong. Unfortunately, it seems the processor, which was tested on a Gigabyte GA-AB350-Gaming 3 board, was actually a cloaked Ryzen 7 3700X CPU (same base clock: 3.6 GHz).

A Twitter user called “Belly Jelly” claimed that they used regedit to rename their Ryzen 7 3700X processor and then fooled UserBenchmark into thinking it was testing an AMD Ryzen 7 4700G. Looking at the samples that have already been tested on the benchmark, there is reason for some comments suggesting it could have even been a disguised Ryzen 7 2700X (but higher base clock: 3.7 GHz), as the average bench result for the “Ryzen 7 4700G” lies between the two aforementioned Ryzen CPUs. Either way, it’s certainly further warning to take UserBenchmark results with a healthy dose of skepticism if entries can be so easily falsified.
