Battlefield V Runs at a Silky Smooth 60 FPS Using the 20W Ryzen 7 4700U iGPU at 1080p

Here’s another heartwarming piece of news amid the lockdown. AMD’s new 15W Ryzen 7 4700U manages to run Battlefield V at a solid 60 FPS (FHD) without breaking a sweat. TechEpiphany confirmed this in a recently shared video. Since the 15W U series isn’t out yet, the outlet emulated it by capping the 45W Ryzen 9 4800HS at 20W. That’s the load (cTDP) power draw of the low-power Renoir chips. Here’s the result:

The game was tested at 1080p using a mix of low to high settings, and it ran beautifully. Say what you will about EA, but their FrostBite engine is very well optimized.

AMD Explains why the Ryzen 4000 Mobile APUs Don’t Use the Chiplet Design; Vega Instead of Navi

Both the Ryzen 7 4800HS and the 4700U are octa-core parts featuring a Vega 7 graphics processor. The former has a CPU base clock of 2.9GHz and a boost of 4.2GHz. The latter, on the other hand, has a base and boost clock of 2.0GHz and 4.1GHz respectively. There’s a 2x delta is the power draw of the two chips: HS has a 35W thermal design while the U chip has a base power consumption of 15W.

The Ryzen 7 4700U will throttle a lot more than the 35W HS chip and the sustained clocks will be lower as well. However, in games, you’ll be mostly limited by the integrated graphics which is why this test is quite credible and both the chips feature the same Vega 7 iGPU running at 1600MHz.
