The prolific leaked information hunter _rogame was able to find UL Benchmark’s 3DMark tests on the upcoming Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 series APUs. Based on the benchmarks, the upcoming APUs have strong CPU performance over its predecessor. The screenshots show the existence of three APUs- the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G, Ryzen 5 Pro 440G and the Ryzen 3 Pro 4200G. The Renoir APUs are based on the 7nm process Zen 2 architecture manufactured by the TSMC.
Ryzen 4000 Pro APU specs
These benchmarks gave a good look at these processor’s specs. The AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 4200 G is an eight-core/ 16 thread APU providing 3.6/ 4.45 GHz clock speeds. It is embedded with eight Vega Compute Units clocked at 2,100 MHz. The Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G is a six-core/ twelve thread APU operating at 3.7/ 4.3 GHz base/ boost clock speed. This APU uses seven on-chip Vega CUs clocked at 1,900 MHz. The Ryzen 3 4200G is a modest four core/ thread processing SKU. These are clocked at 3.8/ 4.1 GHz base/ boost clocks with six CUs, also clocked at 1,900MHz.
For this 3DMark comparison, these APUs were tested with Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G paired with 3200MHz 16GB DDR4 memory kits. Though leaked benchmarks should be taken with a grain of salt, the comparable benchmarks give a realistic view of its performance
You’ll notice a very high processing performance on all the Ryzen 4000 Pro APUs when compared to two of these previous-gen SKUs. The Ryzen 7 Pro 4200 is the flagship, and it shows a 91.2% processing power boost over the Ryzen 5 3400G. The Ryzen Pro 4400G reflects a 56.2%boost, too. the Ryzen 3 Pro 4200G shows 70% boost over the Ryzen 3 3200G also due to the simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) being enabled on this APU
The natural caveat of the APUs
It is not all sunshine and rainbows on these APUs (but not as bad as I made it sound, either). AMD haven’t thought of having Pro series APU, let alone the Ryzen 7 variants. But the Renoir APU’s iGPU performance have minor incremental performance over the previous counterparts. The Ryzen 7 Pro 4200G has three CUs lesser than the Ryzen 5 3400G. Accelerated Processing Units typically have less PCIe 3.0 lanes compared to mainstream CPUs. But these wouldn’t have any PCIe 4.0 lanes, possibly to maintain lower power consumption. It is said that TSMC will make these APUs for AMD on a 5nm+ process but that’s speculative at best. I am very interested to know the cost of these Pro APUs.
Regardless, the launch of these Ryzen 4000 Series Renoir APUs is coming very soon. So we’ll wait and see how these are. Most likely these will be paired with B550 or the A520 motherboards that will be released in the coming months.
