AMD Ryzen 7 4700G Appears Seriously Overclockable Juiced To 4.8GHz On All Cores
Just last week, it was reported that AMD's unreleased Ryzen 7 4700G had hit a 4.7GHz all-core overclock, as depicted in a benchmark leak. Good stuff, but can someone do better? Well yes, yes they can. The all-core overclock to beat now stands at 4.8GHz, or 4,815.24MHz to be precise, though we do not know if that was a stable OC.
The unofficial record overclock on an unofficial CPU was obtained by ITCooker, who posted a CPU-Z screenshot of their achievement on Facebook. Have a look...
There are not any benchmarks to go along with this leak, nor any mention of what type of cooling was used (more than air, most likely) or what the actual voltage was set at. Whatever the case might be, it's interesting to see how high people are able to take the Ryzen 7 4700G before it even releases.
As for the base specs, base on a roundup of previous leaks and rumors, here's what we're looking at for AMD's Ryzen 4000 consumer desktop APU family...
- Ryzen 7 4700G: 8 cores / 16 threads, 3.6GHz to 4.4GHz, 8 GPU cores, 65W
- Ryzen 7 4700GE: 8 cores / 16 threads, 3.1GHz to 4.1GHz, 8 GPU cores, 35W
- Ryzen 5 4400GE: 6 cores / 12 threads, 3.3GHz to 4.2GHz, 7 GPU cores, 65W
- Ryzen 3 4200GE: 4 cores / 8 threads, 3.5GHz to 4.1GHz, 6 GPU cores, 35W
- Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G: 8C/16T, 3.6GHz to 4.4GHz, 8 CUs at 2.1GHz, 65W TDP
- Ryzen 7 Pro 4750GE: 8C/16T, 3.1GHz to 4.3GHz, 8 CUs at ???, 35W TDP
- Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G: 6C/12T, 3.7GHz to 4.3GHz, 7 CUs at 1.9GHz, 65W TDP
- Ryzen 5 Pro 4650GE: 6C/12T, 3.3GHz to 4.2GHz, 7 CUs at ???, 35W TDP
- Ryzen 3 Pro 4350G: 4C/8T, 3.8GHz to 4.1GHz, 6 CUs at 1.7GHz, 65W TDP
- Ryzen 3 Pro 4350GE: 4C/8T, 3.5GHz to 4.1GHz, 6 CUs at ???, 35W TDP
In case you've missed our past coverage, the Ryzen 4000 series of desktop APUs will combined AMD's Zen 2 CPU cores with enhanced Vega graphics. The new lineup has not been formally introduced yet, but given the speed of leaks in recent weeks, we have to think a launch is imminent.
The same leaker also posted screenshots of running the Ryzen 7 4700G at 4.5GHz on all eight cores, with the memory goosed to DDR4-4400MHz. They used a 1:1 ratio, which had the Infinity Link Fabric racing along at 2,200MHz. That is impressive stuff.
In related news, another leaker (APISAK) uncovered a couple of Geekbench entries showing a Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G. In the first entry, it posted a single core score of 1,248 and a multi-core score of 8,205, and in the second run, it posted a single-core score of and a multi-core score of 1,239 and a multi-core score of 8,228.
The figures are roughly in line with what the Ryzen 7 3700X scores, though you can find individual results that are both higher and lower.
Pairing Zen 2 CPU cores with capable graphics (albeit Vega and not Navi) is an intriguing proposition. Now the wait is on for AMD to release these new chips.
