Recent tests of the AMD Ryzen 7 4700GE APU have been uncovered and there are some surprising results.
The Ryzen 7 4700GE is expected to go on sale next month and is part of the Renoir desktop product line. These processors will replace the existing Ryzen 3000 series and feature AMD’s 7nm Zen-2 CPU and Vega GPU cores.
The Ryzen 7 4700GE appeared under the code name “100-000000149-40_40 / 30_Y” and appears to be at an early technical stage.
This processor has 8 cores and 16 threads as well as 4 MB L2 and 8 MB L3 cache. The chip should have a base clock rate of 3.1 GHz and a boost of 4.35 GHz. However, the chip that was discovered in these benchmarks only runs with a 3.0 GHz base clock and 4.0 GHz boost clocks.
This APU also includes a Vega 8 graphics chip that corresponds to 512 SPs that operate at 2000 MHz clock rates.
What do the benchmarks show?
The Ryzen 7 4700GE was paired with an ASUS ROG Strix B550 gaming motherboard with two sticks with 8 GB DDR4-4333 MHz CL14 memory. The benchmarks were shared by Twitter users Komachi.
The infinity fabric clock seems to stay at 2166 MHz (FCLK), which is pretty impressive and shows us what a Zen 2 monolithic chip can do. Another leak, this time from Chiphell, showed us that the Ryzen 4000 range can maintain an infinity fabric clock of 2200 MHz.
According to the benchmarks, the processor was overclocked to 4.30 GHz on all 8 cores and 16 threads.
Another test by TecLab showed, however, that the CPU was overclocked from 14.3.13-28 to 4.35 GHz with an ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact motherboard with CL14 timings. TecLab continued that water cooling will help the APU maintain a 45ns latency.
Given that previous overclocks with AMD’s Ryzen 7 4700G on B550 motherboards offered speeds up to DDR4-5400 MHz, this is all pretty exciting news for 3rd generation Ryzen 4000 APUs.
