AMD has released a new generation of Ryzen 7000
series desktop processors based on the Zen 4 architecture, manufactured with a 5nm process, and the new AM5 platform supports PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory, which will be available for sale on September 27. What is different from the past is that this time AMD has equipped the Ryzen 7000 series with a GPU based on the RDNA 2 architecture, which is manufactured using a 6nm process.
The iGPU scale of the Ryzen 7000 series is not large, with only 2 CUs, a total of 128 stream processors, and a frequency of up to 2200MHz, which can provide floating-point operation performance of 0.563 TFLOPs, slightly higher than the Nintendo Switch. Recently, some netizens tested
the performance of the Ryzen 7000 series of iGPU, using the Ryzen 9 7950X, with 64GB of DDR5 memory. Since the four memory slots are filled, the speed is reduced to 3600Mbps, which has a certain impact on the performance of iGPU.
The device ID of the Ryzen 7000 series iGPU is “GFX1036”, and it scored 7808 points in the OpenCL benchmark test of Geekbench 5. By comparison, the 7nm Vega 6 (six CUs) scored 7003 on the same benchmark, and the Vega 8 (8 CUs) scored between 8000 and 8500. If the test system can be higher in memory speed, it is expected that the performance of the Ryzen 7000 series iGPU should be at the same level as the Vega 8.
