AMD Ryzen desktop APUs are about to get a important improve and move up to 8-cores, at least going by a leaked benchmark.

The end result for what speculation contends is an AMD Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ desktop APU reveals an 8-core, sixteen-thread chip which would double up on the recent Ryzen 3000 APUs that are led by a quad-core part (the Ryzen 5 3400G).

As you can see, the benchmark noticed by TUM_APISAK (and Komachi – equally of whom are the source of numerous components leaks on Twitter) comes from Consumer Benchmark and reveals an 8-core chip which is clocked at 3GHz with improve to three.95GHz. The Consumer Benchmark rating itself was recorded as 86.two%.

Of system, we will need to choose any leak with a sizeable amount of caution, and assuming this is a authentic AMD part, the clock speeds replicate an engineering sample chip, so aren’t representative of the ultimate efficiency you can hope.

The processor was benchmarked in an ASRock B550 motherboard and will reportedly guidance not just this and X570 boards, but also B450 and X470 goods.

As Wccftech studies, _rogame (a further superior-profile Twitter leaker) also chimed in on this a person, boasting that there are at this time (at least) two Renoir APUs going through screening, equally 8-core types, a person operating at 3GHz and a person at three.5GHz, with the GPU purportedly clocked at 1750MHz in equally circumstances (he’s guessing that the Vega integrated graphics will be 8 compute models – the exact as the Ryzen 9 4900HS which is also clocked at that pace).

Efficiency jump

Assuming all this speculation is on the mark, or at least in the vicinity of it, we can hope a considerable jump in efficiency with AMD’s Ryzen 4000 APUs compared to present types.

Even though Consumer Benchmark scores are not the 1st benchmark you’d turn to in an ideal planet, the end result of 86.two% places this alleged sample chip roughly in line with the kind of efficiency you will get from the Ryzen seven 4800H (which averages at 86% bang on in the Consumer Benchmark database).

For comparison, the Ryzen 5 3400G comes in at an typical of 74%, and of system the jump to 8-cores will be additional than welcome for those wanting for a powerful APU, despite the fact that definitely this alleged major-conclusion chip will arrive with a price high quality compared to the quad-core 3400G.

Pricing will probably be pitched some way underneath AMD’s Ryzen seven 3700X 8-core desktop CPU, despite the fact that particularly how far underneath is of system a full guessing match at this position.

It is further more envisioned that as very well as this 8-core design, there will be a quad-core offering for those who really don’t want to fork out that substantially for an APU. According to Wccftech’s resources, the new AMD Ryzen 4000 APUs are envisioned to launch in July.

The present Ryzen 5 3400G provides a base clock of three.7GHz with improve to four.2GHz and the integrated GPU is Vega eleven Graphics clocked at 1400MHz, with the chip acquiring a TDP of 65W (the latter is envisioned to be maintained with the incoming 8-core design).
