Ryzen 4000 Renoir Desktop CPUs Show Significant Uplift Over Zen 2


    The wait for many fans is over as the early benchmarks of Ryzen 4000 Renoir Zen 2 APUs are out finally. Fans have been waiting for some time now for an update on the Renoir series and their prayers have finally been answered. Twitter username _rogame found 3DMark submissions for the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G, Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G, and Ryzen 3 4200G and posted them on his Twitter account on May 28, 2020.

    If we start from the top, Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G is running with 8 cores and 16 threads along with a 3.6 GHz base clock and 4.45 GHz boost clock. The iGPU in the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G supports 8 Vega Compute Units(CUs). These CUs are clocked at 2100MHz.

    Moving on to the Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G, it features 6 cores and 12 threads. The CPU comes with a 3.7 GHz base clock and a 4.3 GHz boost clock. The iGPU, if reports are to be believed, features seven CUs and ticks at 1,900MHz.

    Last in the list is the Ryzen 3 Pro 4200G. It comes with 4 cores and 8 threads. The CPU provides a 3.8 GHz base clock and 4.1 GHz boost clock. The iGPU is claimed to feature six CUs operating at 1,900 MHz.

    All of the three CPUs: Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G, Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G, and the Ryzen 3 Pro 4200G running in a dual-channel configuration with 16GB(2x8GB) of DDR4-3200 memory.

    Benchmarks of Ryzen 4000 series

    The Ryzen 7 4700G delivers up to 9.9% higher processing performance than the Ryzen 9 4900HS. Ryzen 9 is a previous generation flagship chip for mobile Renoir. If we talk about the graphics, the iGPU in Ryzen 7 4700G gives 5.3% better performance than the Ryzen 9 4900HS. The number of CUs are the same in both the systems, however, the latter ticks slower and operates at 1750MHz Clock. This figure alone represents the difference between the two generations of flagship systems. One of the best features of the new Ryzen 7 4700G’s is its significantly improved core count over Ryzen 5 3400Gs. It is the last generation’s flagship system of AMD.

    Talking about the results of the 3DMark, they revealed that we can expect a 91.2% uplift in performance from the Ryzen 7 4700G’s with respect to processing power. The Ryzen 7 4700G has 3 fewer CUs as compared to the Ryzen 5 3400G. However, this is overcome by clocking CUs more aggressively up to 2100MHz. In the graphic test, the Ryzen 5 3400G faced defeat by Ryzen 7 4700G by just 5.7%. However, Ryzen 5 3400G’s iGPU takes the lead when over-clocked from the default 1400MHz to 1700MHz by 1.2%.

    The Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G is also a worthy inclusion to this list. It consists of a hexacore APU and provides up to 56.2% faster performance than the Ryzen 5 3400G. The performance of iGPU in both the system can be considered the same since it is less than 1%.

    AMD’s decision to enable simultaneous multi-threading(SMT) on the chip has been a great benefit to the Ryzen 3 Pro 4200G. With the massive power of 4 more threads and faster clocks, it defeated the Ryzen 3 3200G by 70% in terms of performance. Ryzen 3 portrays the highest iGPU improvement yet. It outdoes Ryzen 3200G by 7.7%.

    To sum it all up, these benchmark leaks show that the new upcoming Renoir series can prove to be quite promising especially on the processing side. It also shows massive improvements in design and performance between the two generations of flagship processors. With new Zen 3 Ryzen 4000 series CPUs in the pipeline for next year and the Renoir series, AMD is solidifying his hold in the Tech industry and provides strong competition for Intel and its upcoming projects.
