At the beginning of this month, AMD announced its new 4000-series Ryzen mobile processors (Renoir), and now one of them – the Ryzen 7 4700U – has been tested in the popular Geekbench benchmark.
The Ryzen 7 4700U is the second oldest in a series of 15-watt Ryen 4000U processors. This chip includes eight processor cores with Zen 2 architecture, which operate on eight threads, that is, there is no support for SMT technology. CPU clock speeds are 2.0 / 4.1 GHz. The integrated second-generation Vega graphics in this case includes seven computing units and operates at a clock frequency of up to 1600 MHz.
In Geekbench, the Ryzen 7 4700U processor was tested as part of a Lenovo system, apparently a laptop. According to the benchmark, the processor worked with frequencies from 3955 to 4185 MHz, that is, even higher than the declared turbofrequency. The performance of the new AMD product was estimated at 4910 points in single-core tests, and 21 693 points in tests using all cores. This is a very high result.
Comparing these results with the results of competitors, Intel Core i7-1065G7 (Ice Lake) and Core i7-10710U (Comet Lake), is quite problematic, since the Geekbench database contains many test results in completely different systems, with different performance characteristics and with different memory, the frequency of which also pretty much affects the results in Geekbench. As a result, Core i7-1065G7 shows results from 1800 to 6300 points in single-core tests, and from 3700 to 20 000 points in multi-core. In turn, the Core i7-10710U is able to show from 2400 to 5600 and from 7400 to 24 000 points in single and multi-core tests, respectively.
So, in order to fully understand the performance of the Ryzen 7 4700U and other AMD Renoir mobile processors, you should wait for the release of laptops based on them. Now we can only say that AMD turned out to be very worthy competitors to the Intel Comet Lake and Ice Lake mobile processors.
