AMD Ryzen 7 4700G Vega 8 iGPU overclocked to a stunning 2.4 GHz, nearly matches the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 in 3DMark Fire Strike
Benchmark results for an overclocked AMD Ryzen 7 4700G have been making the rounds on the Chiphell forums. The overclocked Ryzen 7 4700G was running at 4.3 GHz across all cores. Meanwhile, the Vega 8 graphics core was set to 2.4 GHz, a remarkable 300 MHz over the stock iGPU clock, and one of the highest GPU clocks we've ever seen outside extreme LN2 overclocking situations.
In the leaked CPU benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 4700G outpaced Intel's Coffee Lake i7-9900KF and AMD's own Ryzen 7 3800G. Considering that this is an eight-core APU we expect to see shipping at a lower price point, this is an achievement. In terms of GPU capabilities, Renoir continues to impress with Vega 8 iGPU overclocking numbers. While the poster didn’t share a screenshot of the Fire Strike score, they claimed that the APU scored 5100.
It's important to note here, however, that the APU was paired with 4400 MHz DDR4 RAM. Since iGPUs share memory bandwidth with the system, performance is heavily dependent on RAM speed and a dual-channel 4400 MHz configuration represents pretty much the best-case scenario - we wouldn't expect many AMD Ryzen 7 4700G users to run RAM at these speeds.
Nevertheless, once overclocked to 2.4 GHz, the Vega 8 iGPU scored approximately 5100 on Fire Strike, which is within spitting distance of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and leaked numbers for Intel's Xe DG1.
