Ryzen 7040 processor’s 780M integrated GPU performance revealed
AMD’s upcoming Phoenix architecture APU will feature an RDNA3-based integrated GPU, serving as the heart of the Ryzen 7040 mobile processor. This CPU will be crafted using TSMC’s 4nm process, boasting up to eight Zen 4 cores and 12 Compute Units (CUs). As the successor to the Rembrandt processor, it will initially be used in high-performance laptops before eventually making its way into ultrabooks and handheld gaming devices.
The Ryzen 7 7840HS processor’s integrated GPU benchmark scores have now surfaced on Geekbench’s database. This 8-core, 16-thread processor features a base frequency of 3.8GHz and a maximum frequency of 5.1GHz. Equipped with a Radeon 780M integrated GPU, it possesses 768 stream processors with a frequency reaching up to 2,700MHz. Its OpenCL score in Geekbench 5 is 36,757, surpassing the GTX 1650 Max-Q but falling short of the GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q. However, it remains uncertain under what TDP settings this score was achieved. Moreover, the software only records the use of 32GB of memory; although it is likely DDR5, the frequency remains unknown.
The Radeon 780M integrated GPU, compared to the previous generation’s Radeon 680M, maintains 12 CU units but has evolved from RDNA2 to RDNA3 architecture, with a 300MHz increase in frequency. Although the database includes the Ryzen 9 6900HX scores for comparison, the laptop platform benchmark scores can fluctuate significantly, ranging from 28,000 to 34,000, making direct comparisons challenging.
In summary, the integrated GPU performance of the Ryzen 7040 series processors is highly anticipated. However, as H/HS series processors are typically paired with dedicated GPUs, the focus should be on how much potential the integrated GPU can unleash within the power-constrained 7040U series processors.
