Could AMD be bringing its Ryzen 4000 “Renoir” processors with Vega graphics to the desktop? That appears to be the case based on an Ashes of the Singularity benchmark result spotted by _rogame, which lists an 8C/16T “AMD Ryzen 7 4700G with Radeon Graphics” CPU under its hardware configuration. (AMD’s current flagship APU is the 4C/8T Ryzen 5 3400G with Radeon RX Vega 11 graphics.)

This finding should definitely be taken with a grain of salt, however. “AMD has not made any comments regarding Renoir chips entering the desktop market space,” VideoCardz points out. “It is also worth noting that the previous leak (as found on the UserBenchmark website) regarding this specific SKU has been confirmed to be fake. That said, this leak should be taken with a grain of salt as well.”
But if the Ryzen 7 4700G with Radeon Graphics does turn out to be real, it would probably make an incredible processor for HTPC builders who want a quieter build or wish to forgo a discrete GPU for some other reason. According to _rogame, this chip should feature 8 CUs – less than the Ryzen 5 3400G (11 CUs), but probably higher clocked.
