Asus adds BIOS support for Renoir desktop processors; AMD Ryzen 5 4400G hits 3DMark
The AMD Ryzen 5 4400G has been spotted on 3DMark. Brought to our attention by @_rogame and @TUM_APISAK, 3DMark reports that the Ryzen 5 4400G is a six-core processor that supports Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT). The benchmark listing states that the APU has a base clock of 3.7 GHz that it can boost up to 4.3 GHz, along with an integrated GPU that can reach 1.9 GHz. These specifications correlate with what igor'sLAB has already leaked and match the details that Biostar also recently revealed.
Additionally, Biostar confirmed that the Ryzen 5 4400G has a 65 W TDP. The APU's integrated GPU is thought to support seven Compute Units (CUs) too. AMD has assigned the Ryzen 5 4400G the OPN code 100-000000143, for reference. The APU, which was benchmarked with 8 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, scored 10,241 in the Physics portion of 3DMark 11 Performance and 4,395 in the Graphics benchmark. These results are unlikely to reflect the final performance of the Ryzen 5 4400G, though.
Separately, Asus has added support for Renoir desktop processors in the latest BIOS of its Crosshair VIII Impact motherboard. The changes, which @KOMACHI_ENSAKA published on Twitter, relate to CPUIDs between 00860F00 and 00860F01. It remains unknown when AMD will release Renoir desktop processors, but the fact that multiple motherboard vendors have added support for the APUs in recent weeks suggests that a release may be close.
