AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Zen2 APU Benchmark Leaks Hint At Massive Processing Gains But Subpar iGPU Performance

Benchmarks for AMD's upcoming Renoir Ryzen 4000-series Zen 2 APUs have surfaced online, offering a closer look at the expected performance of the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G, Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G, and Ryzen 3 4200G models.

As has become all-too-common in recent times, the benchmarks were shared by known Twitter data miner _rogame. The benchmarks come in the shape of 3DMark submissions with Fire Strike Physics and Fire Strike Graphics scores running on a system with 16 GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 for the 4700G and 4400G, and 8GB for the 4200G.

According to the leak, the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G features Radeon Graphics (iGPU with eight Vega Compute Units running at 2100 MHz), eight cores, 16 threads, a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz, and a boost clock speed of 4.45 GHz.

The Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G reportedly features Radeon Graphics with an iGPU clocked at 1900 MHz (no word on the CU count, but logic suggests seven seems likely based on the 4700G and 4200G), a base clock speed of 3.7 GHz, and a boost clock speed of 4.3 GHz.

As for the AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 4200G, we are looking at an iGPU with five Compute Units running at 3200 MHz, four cores, eight threads, a base clock speed of 3.8 GHz, and a boost clock speed of 4.1 GHz.

And, for the results: the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G hit a 23,392 point score on Fire Strike Physics, and 4,301 on Fire Strike Graphics. The Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G scored 19,113 and 4,033, while the Ryzen 5 3400G scored 12,233 and 4,353.

For the sake of contrast, the APUs were compared with AMD's flagship mobile Ryzen 9 4900HS, which scored 21,289 for Physics, and 4,084 for Graphics, as well as a Ryzen 5 3400G. The results suggest a 9.9% Physic performance boost and a 5.3% Graphics performance boost for the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G.

Compared to the Ryzen 5 3400G, the 4700G reportedly offers a massive performance improvement of 91.2%. The Ryzen 5 3400G did outclass the Ryzen 4700G's iGPU by 1.2%, though.

As for the Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G, it beat out the Ryzen 5 3400G by 56.2% in processor performance but flagged behind for iGPU performance by about 8%.

Overall, the Renoir Ryzen 4000-series Zen 2 APUs certainly look the part in terms of CPU performance but may let down those expecting a similar improvement in the iGPU department.
