AMD’s 4th Gen Renoir Desktop APUs to be Twice as Fast as 3rd Gen Picasso Chips

AMD’s Ryzen 4000 mobile processors launched a while back, taking the performance crown from Intel by securing an overwhelming victory in both performance and efficiency. Now, we’re about to see the desktop counterparts of the 7nm APUs in the coming months. These will be AMD’s first octa-core APUs, bringing unprecedented levels of performance to the budget market. We have a 3DMark benchmark comparing the 3400G and the 4700G. The results show the latter outpacing its predecessor by nearly 2x:

On the GPU side, the performance gains are less prominent, but the CPU performance is quite remarkable. The Ryzen 7 4700G manages to beat not only the 3400G in the physics test, but the Ryzen 5 3600 as well. It’s twice as fast compared to its precedessor, and brings significantly more perforamance in both single-threaded as well as multi-threaded segments.
