It's been a long wait, but early benchmarks of AMD's Ryzen 4000-series (codename Renoir) Zen 2 APUs are finally out in the wild. Rising dataminer @_rogame dug up 3DMark submissions for the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G, Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G and Ryzen 3 4200G parts.
Starting from the top to the bottom, the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G surfaced with eight cores and 16 threads running with a 3.6 GHz base clock and 4.45 GHz boost clock. The iGPU sports eight Vega Compute Units (CUs) that are clocked at 2,100 MHz. The Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G packed six cores and 12 threads and chip finished the benchmark with a 3.7 GHz base clock and 4.3 GHz boost clock. The iGPU, which presumably features seven CUs, ticked at 1,900 MHz.
Last in order but not of importance, the Ryzen 3 4200G appeared with four cores and eight threads at a 3.8 GHz base clock and 4.1 GHz boost clock. The iGPU seemingly has six CUs operating at 1,900 MHz.
All three systems were running DDR4-3200 memory with the detail that the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G and Ryzen 5 Pro 4400G ones leveraged 16GB (2x8GB) of memory, while the Ryzen 3 4200G system was one a single 8GB memory module. Therefore, the Ryzen 3 4200G numbers are likely lower than normal since it wasn't taking advantage of a dual-channel configuration that benefits performance in graphics workloads.
The 3DMark results revealed that you can expect a performance uplift up to 91.2% from the Ryzen 7 4700G in terms of processing power. The iGPU performance between both flagships was pretty close. The Ryzen 7 4700G has three less CUs than the Ryzen 5 3400G. However, AMD makes up the deficit by clocking the CUs more aggressively – up to 2,100 MHz to be exact. The Ryzen 5 3400G's iGPU, which ran at 1,700 MHz, outperformed the Ryzen 7 4700G's iGPU by 1.2%.
