AMD recently unveiled their new Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 APUs. Sadly, these APUs are only available for pre-built systems and OEMs. However, AMD Ryzen Pro 4000-series processors have been made available from multiple retailers in Europe. So while we eagerly wait for the higher end Ryzen 4000 series to be made commercially available, we can delve into the new APUs and see what makes them tick.
Kicking things off is the Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G. This is a 8 cores/16 thread chip with a boost frequency of upto to 4.4GHz with a a base clock of 3.6GHz. It also packs 12MB of L3 cache and squeezes this all into a 65-Watt TDP.
Next up is the Ryzen 5 4650G and the Ryzen 3 4350G. These come in at base clocks of 3.7Ghz and 3.8GHz respectively and boost upto 4.2GHz and 4.0Ghz respectively. While the Ryzen 5 features a 6 core/12 thread layout, the Ryzen 3 offers a 4 core/8 thread approach. Both chips also come in at a 65-W TDP.
Interestingly, the AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs offer more graphics horsepower than the original PS4 and Xbox One. Both the PS4 and Xbox One pack an 8 core AMD Jaguar CPU clocked at 1.6 GHz and 1.75 GHz later on. The PS4 on the other hand, packed an AMD GCN based GPU with an output of around 1.84 TFLOPs.
The Xbox One was outfitted with an AMD GCN GPU with 768 cores for a theoretical compute output of 1.3 TFLOPs. The Xbox One S got a slight performance boost with a more efficient design giving it higher GPU clocks resulting in around 1.4 TFLOPs of GPU horsepower.
In comparision, the new Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G features 1.1 TFLOPs of CPU and 2.15 TFLOPs of GPU horsepower. This gives it a combined 3.25 Teraflops of computational power which clearly blows both consoles out of the water.
In short, the new Ryzen 4000 Pro APUs are not to be trifled with. They offer quite a lot of bang for the buck and the only thing we can do is to wait and see what else AMD has up its sleeve. In the meantime, check out our selection of AMD Ryzen processors available for sale below.
