Real 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 4700G Renoir desktop APU pops up alongside a Radeon RX 5700 XT on Ashes of the Singularity benchmark
There have been hints of a Ryzen 4000 desktop APU making a properly named appearance sooner or later, firstly with a cloaked Ryzen 7 3700X masquerading as a Ryzen 7 4700G on UserBenchmark and then with an engineering sample that was clearly a Renoir desktop APU popping up on the same benchmark. Now, thanks to _rogame, we have a named AMD Ryzen 7 4700G that was spotted on Ashes of the Singularity.
The benchmark screenshot doesn’t reveal too much about the processor itself, apart from the aforementioned eight cores and 16 threads. In combination with the Radeon RX 5700 XT the AMD Ryzen 7 4700G desktop APU manages a score of 6,400 on low 1080p settings. The average frame rate for the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark is measured at 65.6 fps. Naturally, the Zen 2-based Ryzen 7 4700G will offer desktop users an APU that boasts of 7nm CPU and GPU microarchitecture improvements.
The same source believes the AMD Ryzen 7 4700G will likely sport 8 compute units (CUs) and possibly feature the same GPU clock rate as the Ryzen 9 4900HS: 1,750 MHz. The Ryzen 4000 desktop APU will probably be able to take advantage of utilizing more power than its mobile counterparts due to having a higher TDP. For instance, the previous-generation Ryzen 5 3400G desktop APU could count on 45-65 W TDP compared to the mobile parts mostly relying on either 15 W (3000U series) or 35 W (3000H series).
