AMD completed its Zen 2 processor line with the announcement of the Ryzen 4000 series …

AMD completed its Zen 2 processor line with the announcement of the Ryzen 4000 G series. These are desktop chips with integrated graphics, using the same single-chip design as Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ mobile processors, but extended to take advantage of the largest power budgets on desktop motherboards.

Like mobile chips, this means that PCIe 4.0 is not supported here. The new line will be launched first on pre-built OEM systems, with DIY availability available later and replaces the venerable Ryzen 3200G and 3400G.

The new CPUs are the Ryzen 7 4700G, Ryzen 5 4600G and Ryzen 3 4300G, all rated for a TDP of 65W. This is the first time that AMD announces a Ryzen 7 APU, surpassing Ryzen 5 in the last generation.

There are also 35W variants of the three new CPUs that use the suffix GE – the 4700GE, 4600GE and 4300GE – that operate at lower frequencies to achieve their tighter power goals. See how all six models compare in terms of key specifications:

AMD Ryzen Cores / Lines Increase Freq. Freq. Base Cache memory size GPU cores GPU Boost 4700G 16/8 4.4GHz 3.6GHz 12MB 8 2100MHz 4600G 6/12 4.2GHz 3.7GHz 11MB 7 1900MHz 4300G 4/8 4.0GHz 3.8GHz 6MB 6 1700MHz 4700GE 16/8 4.3GHz 3.1 GHz 12MB 8 2000MHz 4600GE 6/12 4.2GHz 3.3GHz 11MB 7 1900MHz 4300GE 4/8 4.0GHz 3.5GHz 6MB 6 1700MHz

Comparisons

AMD has yet to offer Ryzen 4000 G chips for benchmarking, but they have the usual crop of content creation and game results to share with today’s announcement.

Notably, AMD insisted that its test employees were unable to purchase 10th generation Intel Core processors; therefore, it is comparing the latest with Intel’s ninth generation processors – and it is not the first time it has used this excuse.

AMD also compares its new processors to the outbound Ryzen 5 3400G, showing a 21% increase in Cinebench R20 single-thread performance for the Ryzen 5 4600G and a 25% advantage for the Ryzen 7 4700G.

In the multithreaded test, these advantages reach 94 and 152%, respectively. The increase in graphics performance is less, as scores in Mark TimeSpy 3D are increased by six and 19 percentage points more moderately for the 4600G and 4700G, respectively. However, this is still reasonably impressive, since the 3400G includes 11 graphics cores and the 4700G uses only eight.

Like the 3400G before, it seems that the 4000 series APUs should be a reasonably competent choice for 1080p games at low configurations, providing reproducible frame rates with integrated graphics only.
