AMD Ryzen 7 8700G APU appears on Geekbench

Yesterday, we reported on AMD’s Ryzen 5 8600G, targeted at the mainstream market, surfacing in the Geekbench 6 database. It scored 24,842 in OpenCL and 30,770 in Vulkan. Following this, the flagship of the AMD Ryzen 8000G series, the Ryzen 7 8700G, also made its appearance.

The AMD Ryzen 7 8700G APU, like the Ryzen 5 8600G, is codenamed Phoenix and is part of the Zen 4 core family. It boasts 8 cores and 16 threads, with base and boost frequencies of 4.2GHz and 5.1GHz, respectively. The L2 and L3 caches are 8MB and 16MB, respectively, and it features a Radeon 780M integrated GPU with 12 CUs operating at 2.9GHz. The Ryzen 5 8600G, on the other hand, has 6 cores and 12 threads, base and boost frequencies of 4.35GHz and 5.0GHz, L2 and L3 caches of 6MB and 16MB, respectively, and a Radeon 760M integrated GPU with 8 CUs operating at 2.8GHz.

In a test setup using the ASUS TUF GAMING X670E-PLUS WIFI motherboard and 32GB of dual-channel memory (system recognized as quad-channel) running at a speed of 4786MT/s, the Ryzen 7 8700G APU achieved Vulkan and OpenCL scores of 35,427 and 29,244, respectively. This represents a 15% and 18% improvement over the previously tested Ryzen 5 8600G.

It’s worth noting that the test platform for the Ryzen 5 8600G was MSI’s X670E ACE with dual-channel 32GB memory at a speed of 5996MT/s. Although the power schemes differed slightly—Balanced for the Ryzen 5 8600G and Normal Utilization for the Ryzen 7 8700G—the disparity in memory speeds was more pronounced. Therefore, while the actual performance gap needs further validation, it’s clear that the integrated GPU performance of the Ryzen 7 8700G is at least 15% better than that of the Ryzen 5 8600G.

The first batch of Ryzen 8000G series APUs for desktop platforms reportedly includes six models:

– Ryzen 3 8300G (3.45GHz, 65W, 8MB, 4 cores, B2 stepping)
– Ryzen 3 PRO 8300G (3.45GHz, 65W, 8MB, 4 cores, B2 stepping)
– Ryzen 5 8500G (3.35GHz, 65W, 16MB, 6 cores, B2 stepping)
– Ryzen 5 PRO 8500G (3.35GHz, 65W, 16MB, 6 cores, B2 stepping)
– Ryzen 5 8600G (4.35GHz, 65W, 16MB, 6 cores, B2 stepping)
– Ryzen 7 8700G (4.2GHz, 65W, 16MB, 8 cores, B2 stepping)

AMD is expected to launch the Ryzen 8000G series APUs within the first quarter of 2024, potentially debuting at the upcoming CES 2024.
