Renoir iGPU performance leaks on Userbenchmark: 65 percent faster than Picasso's Vega 10
As we come closer to AMD's CES 2020 keynote and a likely official announcement, information about the Ryzen 4000 "Renoir" APU line continues to leak. Tipster @TUM_APISAK was found sharing a Userbenchmark comparison between the Vega 10 iGPU in Picasso APUs and the undisclosed "Radeon Graphics" iGPU used on Renoir.
While we already have a rough picture of how Renoir will perform on the CPU front-current information suggests that the lineup will feature up to 8 Zen 2 cores-information about Renoir's iGPU performance has been thin on the ground until now.
The leaked Userbenchmark comparison indicates that Renoir will see a significant uptick in graphics performance compared to previous-gen APUs. On the "Average User Bench" aggregate, which combines Lighting, MRender, and Gravity test scores, the purported Renoir iGPU averages 65 percent faster than Vega 10. At least one of these tests appears to have had a framerate cap, an issue other Userbenchmark users have reported. This implies that the real-world performance increase may be even higher.
Earlier leaks indicated that Renoir would feature Vega graphics instead of Navi. If this is the case, the Userbenchmark APU most likely features a 16 CU configuration, in line with the performance scaling relative to Vega 10.
Interestingly, this is a Vega configuration we've seen before. The Radeon Pro Vega 16, an optional discrete card for 2018 MacBook Pros, features this exact shader configuration. From extant Radeon Pro Vega 16 performance figures, it's possible to extrapolate real-world performance figures for Renoir's iGPU. It will most likely perform on par with the GTX 1050 Ti. AMD's CES 2020 keynote is just days away. We'll update you on Renoir if the company has more to say about it during CES.
