AMD’s Ryzen 7 5700G APU Finally Arrives

Faster Than A Speeding GT 1030

The $360 Ryzen 7 5700G with 8 cores, 16 threads running at 3.8 GHz base and 4.6 GHz peak, along with 8 Vega CUs running at 2GHz has finally been benchmarked so we can see just how AMD’s new iGPU performs.  We have a baseline that it needs to beat, as we know what performance level Intel’s new Core i9-11900K with Xe graphics provides and as it turns out the PR was accurate, in general the iGPU on the Ryzen 7 5700G is about twice as fast as the i9-11900K.

TechPowerUp tested the iGPU fourdifferent ways, they used DDR4-3800 to test when the amount of memory reserved for the iGPU at the the default of 512MB and when it is at 2GB as well as the effect overclocking the the iGPU to 2.4GHz has.  They also tested the system with DDR4-3200 to see what effect that has on the iGPU.  The memory speed does seem to have the largest effect, followed by overclocking; increasing reserved memory only bumps performance up marginally.

If you are planning on only temporarily using the iGPU on the Ryzen 7 5700G, the performance you will get with a discrete GPU will not match that of the less expensive Ryzen 5 5600X, so bear that in mind while designing your next system.  See all the results right here.

With the Ryzen 7 5700G AMD is finally bringing their most powerful APU to the retail DIY channel. With 512 graphics cores, based on the Vega architecture, the IGP is over twice as fast as Intel's Rocket Lake graphics. The eight CPU cores are blazing fast, too, thanks to the Zen 3 architecture.

    How did you make the conclusion “the performance you will get with a discrete GPU will not match that of the less expensive Ryzen 5 3600”? No where in any of the numbers does that ring true. Even those very rare outliers where the 3600 “performs better”, it is in scenarios where there are extremely small differences between ALL of the CPUs due to graphics settings (4K high/ultra).

    In the summary graphs, the 5700G significantly outperforms the Ryzen 5 3600 (and even the Ryzen 7 3000 series). The 3600 has a very small “performance per dollar” advantage, but for sheer performance the 3600 isn’t even close.

      That would be because I was supposed to type Ryzen 5 5600X … fixing now.
