AMD Ryzen 7 5700G in review: 8-core desktop APU based on Zen3 with Vega graphics unit

"Cezanne" for the desktop! With the APUs of the 2000 and 3000 series aka "Raven Ridge" and "Picasso", AMD has repeatedly developed inexpensive processors with a fast graphics unit in the last few years. Based on Zen 3, "Cezanne" series now follows and raises the bar a bit again with the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G.

Die-shot of the Ryzen 5000G (Source: AMD)
Die-shot of the Ryzen 5000G (Source: AMD)

With the APUs that AMD carries in its lineup, the manufacturer brings notebook technology to the desktop space. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G and the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G are both based on the current Zen3 architecture and are very similar to their laptop Cezanne counterparts. However, these products are not completely new, as the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and AMD Ryzen 5 2400G were the first Zen-based APUs with a fast iGPU, which belongs to the Vega architecture. With the small relaunch last year (AMD Ryzen 3 3200G and AMD Ryzen 5 3400G), the innovations of the CPU architecture flowed in. The same applies to the new APUs of the 5000 series. However, there are a small amount of changes in relation to the iGPU. The Vega architecture, which has been around for a few years, is slowly reaching its limits, which is quickly noticed in our tests. Unfortunately, even the high GPU clock cannot make up for that much.

In this review we'll take a closer look at the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G, which AMD Germany provided us with. This modern APU also offers 8 native processing cores for the first time. Thus, it is the fastest APU in AMD's lineup. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is a 6-core APU. With its 65 watts, the Ryzen 7 5700G is relatively frugal and at the same time very fast, if we restrict ourselves to CPU performance. More about the exact position of the fastest APU later.

If you want to take full advantage of this APU, you have to own a board with a 400 or 500-series chipset. However, you have to make sure that various display connections are available on the board to be able to use the iGPU at all. These connections are rather rare on the more expensive X570 boards, so buyers should focus on a well-equipped B550 or B450 board. For this review, we found one of the few X570 boards that can fully utilize the APU - Asus ROG Strix X570-I Gaming.

We would like to thank Caseking at this point, for the loan of the Raijintek Pean, which was additionally individualized with laser engravings. AMD contributed the Ryzen 7 5700G and for cooling we are using the Alphacool Eisbear 280 AIO, which was provided to us by Alphacool. For the RAM, we would like to thank Corsair for their support.

Processor benchmarks

The already known innovations of the Zen 3 architecture are also reflected in AMD's fastest APU within our CPU benchmarks. The single-core performance is about 10% better compared to the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT. Compared to the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, which is also equipped with 8 cores, our AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is clearly beaten. In the performance rating, the APU is somewhat on par with an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, although the latter has a clear disadvantage in multi-thread loads due to the 6 cores.

Raven Ridge vs. Cezanne

Unfortunately, the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G was not available to us, so we decided to compare our test unit with the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G. This is AMD's first APU based on the Zen architecture. It also shows very impressively how much AMD has tinkered with improving the Zen architecture. Of course, you cannot compare the multi-thread tests directly with each other because the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G only offers 4 native processing cores, while current top model has 8 cores.

Load test with the Cinebench R15 multi-loop

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G has no problems in the stress test with the Cinebench R15 multi-loop. The 65 watts of waste heat do not require large cooling constructions and thus installed AiO together with the 280 millimeter radiator is already somewhat redundant.

Gaming performance of the new Cezanne APU

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G offers a solid iGPU AMD Radeon RX Vega 8, which we have known for a few years. However, at the same time this integrated graphics unit has found it increasingly difficult to assert itself against the competition from Intel. With the desktop offshoot of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8, which is usually found in notebooks, AMD can just about keep Intel's iGPUs in check. Compared with the Nvidia GeForce MX450, the iGPU of the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is just as fast. But comparing with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile shows that the iGPU quickly reaches its limits and is clearly inferior to a dedicated graphics card. Future AMD's Rembrandt APUs aka Ryzen 6000 with RDNA2 could close the gap here.

Gaming performance

Those who are not willing to buy overpriced videocards might be happy with an AMD APU. Nevertheless, it should be mentioned that the performance is only partially sufficient for current games. Anyway, due to the good cooling in the desktop PC, the iGPU can easily unleash its full performance, while in compact laptops this might be a problem. Overall, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 in the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G offers a moderate gaming performance. Older titles can be played without problems, although you have to look closely, for example in Final Fantasy XV. On the other hand, GTA V can even be rendered smoothly in 1080p with high details.

Power consumption

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G during the stress test
AMD Ryzen 7 5700G during the stress test

AMD specifies a TDP of 65 watts for the Ryzen 7 5700G . However, this can be increased by a factor of 1.35 under load. We were able to verify this during the stress test, because the APU's maximum power consumption was just under 87 watts. There were no problems with the temperatures due to the installed AiO. We recorded the highest temperature of 57 °C in the Prime95 load test.

In terms of energy consumption, the system based on the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G can show good rates. The idle power consumption was 45 watts. Nevertheless, we measured a maximum of 156 watts during full load (stress test Prime95 + FurMark). When gaming, the system was content with just 93 watts on average - this is a clear advantage compared to a desktop system with a dedicated graphics card, which often has a TDP of 200 watts and more.

Note: All measurements were taken without taking into account the monitor power consumption, all ARGB lighting was deactivated.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G in review: provided by AMD Germany
The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G in review: provided by AMD Germany

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is a state-of-the-art processor based on the current Zen3 architecture. The innovations that have arrived with the Ryzen 5000 family can also be implemented by the fastest APU from AMD. The 8-core processor is fast and ranks just behind the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X.

The most sought-after feature of the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is the integrated graphics unit. However, APU is still using somewhat outdated Vega iGPU architecture. AMD has always been able to squeeze a bit more performance out of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 with each newer APU generation, but the age of the Vega architecture is noticeable and you should not expect too much from the iGPU of the Ryzen 7 5700G. Users who play older games or casual games from time to time can safely use the current APU. Thus, you can save the purchase of a dedicated graphics card, which is rewarded with a low power consumption. And of course, if the iGPU's performance will no longer be sufficient for you, there is still option for a future upgrade, when prices of a dedicated graphics cards come down. The performance of the 8-core CPU is definitely there.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is the first APU with 8 cores. Nevertheless, AMD gives away valuable 3D-performance here, because the outdated Vega architecture takes its toll, since RDNA2 aka Navi will only take hold with the 6000 processors.

As always, the customer is spoiled for choice, but if the purchase of an APU from AMD is currently on the agenda, there is almost no way around the 5000 Ryzen APUs. The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is currently available for as little as 300 Euros. The 6-core model (AMD Ryzen 5 5600G) is currently available for 230 Euros. It is a bargain compared to the predecessor, since various online stores charge a whopping 400 Euros for the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G.

I was already interested in technology from an early age, and I was able to study for my dream job as an IT Systems Electronics Engineer. Subsequently, I started 12 years of military service, during which I learned a lot about technology and constantly kept my knowledge up to date with the latest developments. As I like to share my knowledge, I found Notebookcheck was a very good opportunity for this. In addition, I also work a lot with water cooling and network security.
