3DMark 11 scores were recently leaked for the Ryzen 7 4700U. The 15W mobile part posted 5446 on the graphics test, substantially higher than Nvidia's discrete GeForce MX250. It also posted a physics score on par with a desktop system equipped with the 65W i7-6700.

3DMark 11 scores were recently leaked for AMD's Ryzen 7 4700U 15W laptop APU. Considering its frugal power envelope, the part did surprisingly well on 3DMark 11's graphics test, beating Nvidia's 25W discrete GeForce MX250 by nearly 17 percent. It also confirmed AMD's claim that Vega graphics on Renoir parts would substantially outperform the existing Picasso lineup through higher clockspeeds and higher sustained performance, thanks to the 7nm process.

The integrated RX Vega 7 (with 7 compute units) scored 5446 on the 3DMark 11 graphics test. This is substantially higher than the GeForce MX 250's graphics score of 4655. Thanks to its octa-core Zen 2-based processor, the Ryzen 7 4700U also did great on the physics test, scoring 10,404. This is on par with the 65W Skylake i7-6700.

The move to the 7nm process has meant that AMD's managed to tap into power efficiency gains with Renoir but these results are remarkable: an iGPU that's faster than the discrete MX250 and a CPU power on par with a 14nm flagship. 

With Intel set to launch Tiger Lake chips with integrated Gen12 iGPUs, though, it'll be interesting to see exactly how competitive Renoir is at launch.
