Ryzen 7 5700G boosting to 4.6 GHz offers unspectacular results on Geekbench compared to Ryzen 7 4700G but it's early days for the AMD desktop APU
We have become so used to singing the praises of the Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 chips from AMD that it comes as something of a surprise when a sample turns up that doesn’t set fire to the synthetic benchmark record books. This can be said about an AMD Ryzen 7 5700G desktop APU that was unearthed on Geekbench by Tum Apisak. Fortunately for hardcore Team Red fans, this processor is at a stepping 0 level, which means more can be expected from it as it is tweaked and refined.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G, which has a recorded base clock of 3.80 GHz and seemingly a boost clock that can stretch to 4.66 GHz, scored 1,304 points in the single-core test and 8,717 points in the multi-core test. While the 8-core chip has shown progress in single-core processing, just like the rest of the Ryzen 5000 series, the multi-core result looks muted. Comparing it with the handful of benchmarks from systems with the Ryzen 7 4700G shows that in some cases the Zen 2 Renoir APU actually outscored the Zen 3 successor, with one example amassing 9,529 points (Windows; Gigabyte X570 I Aorus Pro WIFI).
The good news is that the Ryzen 7 5700G, which as a desktop APU brings an integrated GPU with it (Radeon Vega architecture), shows great single-core performance improvement against the competition from Intel. Recent CPU-Z results for this Vermeer chip were respectable, and once again the single-thread performance was outstanding, especially considering it’s an area in which AMD was once believed to be vastly inferior.
