AMD Ryzen 7 4700G Final Retail APU Spotted Suggesting Imminent Launch

Final retail samples of the octa-core Ryzen 7 4700G Renoir (desktop) APU have been spotted, suggesting an impending launch. Unlike the chips seen earlier which were engineering samples, this one comes with the specs baked into the firmare on account of being market-ready.

We are looking at the eight-core/sixteen threaded Ryzen 7 4700G paired with the Vega 8 iGPU packing as many as 512 shaders. While the specs may be similar to the Ryzen 7 3700X, one core difference here is in terms of the CCX configuration.

Where the Matisse part has a larger 4MB of L3 cache per core resulting in a total of 32MB, the Ryzen 7 4700G (Renoir flagship) has 2MB per core resulting in a total of 8MB L3 cache. AMD tackles this by increasing the Infinity Fabric and thereby the memory speeds and bandwidth as we’ve already seen.

The leaked Ryzen 7 4700G specs are in line with earlier reports with a base of 3.6Ghz and a boost of 4.45GHz, 500MHz higher than the 3700X. As for the GPU, you’ve got eight Vega-based Compute Units running at a frequency of 2.1GHz, resulting in a compute rating of 1.75 TFLOPS. That’s nearly the same as the PS4.

There have been rumors suggesting that Renoir might be OEM exclusive on the desktop platform with only the midrange Ryzen 5 parts for the DIY retail market. It’s still not clear whether that is true. Furthermore, Renoir won’t support the PCIe 4.0 support like Matisse, and may or may not be limited to just 8 lanes.
