AMD’s latest and greatest APU could be just around the corner. VideoCardz has published the first photo of the Ryzen 7 4700G, confirming earlier rumors of “Renoir” hitting the desktop space. This is an 8C/16T APU that trounces the current champ, the Ryzen 5 3400G with Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics, with a base/boost clock of 3.6 GHz/4.4 GHz and 8 CUs clocked at 2100 MHz.

The entire “Renoir” desktop APU portfolio was actually leaked earlier this week by Igor’s Lab. There appears to be plenty of variants aside from the Ryzen 7 4700G, such as a 6C/12T SKU with a base/boost clock of 3.7 GHz/4.3 GHz and 7 CUs clocked at 1900 MHz. These will feature either 35 W or 65 W TDPs.

It remains to be seen how popular these Ryzen 7 APUs will be compared to their iGPU-less counterparts. Most enthusiasts might spring for a discrete graphics solution at this performance tier, although the 4700G could be ideal for smaller/quieter HTPC builds capable of running demanding video renderers, such as MadVR.
