We’ve already gone through a lot of tests showing the CPU capabilities of the Renoir APUs on AM4, but it’s actually the GPU and not the CPU that’s more worthy of your attention. As per latest reports, the Vega 8 iGPU on the Ryzen 7 4700G is faster than both the PS5 as well as the Xbox One.
From the above benchmark, it can be inferred that the Ryzen 7 4700G offers a performance of nearly 2.15 TFLOPs on the GPU side and 1.1 TFLOPs on the CPU side. In comparison, the Jaguar CPU featured on the PS4 has a peak performance rating of just 0.1 TFLOPs while the GPU is rated at 1.84 TFLOPs. The Xbox One, on the other hand, offers a paltry 1.41 TFLOPs of GPU power and 0.1 TFLOPs of CPU juice.
Looking at the pricing, while the PS4 Slim and Xbox One S presently cost $400, the Ryzen 7 4700G/4750G (PRO) has a price recommendation of $299, with the entire system likely costing around $500. These APUs really offer the best bang for your buck, and it’s highly likely that we’ll see them hit retail later this year.
As if that wasn’t enough, even the Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G which is priced @ $209 offers more performance than the PS4 with a combined CPU-GPU rating of 2.5 TFLOPs. The Ryzen 3 PRO 4350G levels with the last-gen console with a total performance of 1.9 TFLOP and an MSRP of just $149.
Here are a few benchmarks showing the Ryzen 7 4700G running Assassins’ Creed Odyssey, Death Stranding and GTA V at 1080p 60 FPS without breaking a sweat:
