Intel Core processors are fully integrated with GPU graphics cores (except the F-Series only), and the higher the model, the stronger the specs, the amd APU processor, in contrast, has always been limited to the low end market. Now, APU is finally going to the top end! As the last piece of the Renoir family puzzle, 7nm process, Zen2 architecture of the new generation of Ryzen APU has been frequently exposed, and even the emergence of “Ryzen 7 4700G” such a specific model, and confirmed to be eight core, apparently for the high-end market.
Now, for the first time, we’ve seen a physical photo of the Ryzen 7 4700G:
Model, logo, number, origin, QR code and other information, apparently the official retail version, enough to indicate that not far from the release.
As for its specific specifications, from the surface of the OPN number “100-000000146” can be seen, it is one of the full line of products leaked yesterday, corresponding to the specification of 8 core 16 threads, secondary cache 4MB, three-level cache 8MB, reference frequency 3.6G, up to 4.45GHz, Vega 8 GPU graphic core, frequency 2100HzHz design 65W.
Exposure shows that this generation of desktop-level Ryon APU also has 6 core 12 threads plus Vega 7, 4 core 8 threads and Vega 6, thermal design power consumption is 65W, 35W two.
It’s also worth noting that whether it’s the 14nm Zen Ryzen 5 2400G, or the 12nm Zen 5 3400G, the Vega 11 is integrated, but now it’s down sized, from 11 compute units (704 stream processors) to 8 compute units (512 stream processors)?
This is clearly the product of the overall scale balance compromise, after all, from four cores to eight cores, bringing the core area, power consumption increase is very obvious, had to sacrifice the GPU part.
But even the new Vega 8 is said to be better than the old Vega 11 because the architecture is technically optimized on the one hand and the frequency is greatly increased, with 1400MHz to 2100MHz, but a sufficient acceleration of 50%.
