Ryzen 7 5700G Review and Benchmark : The Fastest iGPU

Today we're going to review the new AMD Ryzen 7 5700 G depending on how you look at it that's because this thing was actually released back in April of this year they're only for use in OEM systems like the box they announced the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G along with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600g would be coming to the retail market in august so next month ever since these new APU were announced. 

Ryzen 7 5700G Review and Benchmark : The Fastest iGPU

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G – Specs

What the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is all about as well as its little brother the AMD Ryzen 5 5600g the ryzen 7 5700g is an 8 core 16 thread processor using amd zen3 architecture clocking up to 4.6 GHz with a 16 megabyte L3 cache and a 65 watt TDP now what makes this model different to the other ryzen 5000 series parts that we already have is the integrated graphics but sadly it's not rd and a2 or even rdna graphics but rather vega with 8 compute units clocked up to 2 GHz so AMD's been using for their ryzen mobile 5000 APU's like the ryzen 9 5900x and that means it's a monolithic diet rather than chiplet-based as a result of this along with the fact that amd has had to squeeze in the gpu half of the L3 cache has been removed dropping the 5700g down to 16 megabytes so that's likely gonna have quite a negative impact on performance when compared to parts such as the 5800x then complementing the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is the smaller ryzen 5 5600g which is a 6core model clocked up to 4.4 GHz the gpu has also been downgraded with just 7 vega compute units clocked up to 1.9 GHz and we get the same 16 megabytes L3 cache AMD's positioning these processors as lower cost zen 3 alternatives to the current X models with no integrated graphics that have been on the market for some time now the company acknowledged that there's been a lot of demand for non-X CPU's and apparently these parts are set to fill that gap unfortunately though these aren't really the low-cost CPU's that many of you have been looking for the ryzen 5 5600g for example that's priced at 260$ that's 40 less than the ryzen 5 5600x now this is cheaper of course but not the 200 to 220$ that many of you were hoping a ryzen 5 5600 non-X would slot into meanwhile the ryzen 7 5700g will sit between the 5600x and 5800x in terms of pricing at 360$ so again not quite as cheap as we would have liked especially given the big reduction in L3 cache and the fact that they dropped the pci express 4.0 support in favor of the aging 3.0 standard anyway roughly translated that means peoples can expect to pay around 500$ and that makes sense given.

Testing Benchmark

we need to get into the benchmarks and for this, I've split the testing into three sections first we're going to look exclusively at CPU performance by testing the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G in applications using an RTX 2080Ti so I can compare it with the rest of our CPU data then I want to see how well it works with the vega integrated graphics and for this, I'll be comparing it to the Ryzen 5 3500g and core i7 11700 using their integrated graphics and then I'll also throw on some discrete graphics cards which were tested on the Ryzen 5 5600x then finally I've also run quite a lot of discrete GPU tests using the GeForce RTX 3090 allowing us to compare the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G to a range of other CPUs with a powerful graphics card so that should be interesting and it will give us a good idea of what kind of headroom this ap offers gamers should they upgrade down the track to a discrete graphics card.

Benchmarks

Let's get into it starting with Cine Bench r20 multi-core performance we see that the et's get into it starting with CineBench r20 multi-core performance we see that the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is good for a score of 5432 points which is quite good though it is slower than the Ryzen 7 5800x and i9 11900k trailing by around a 10% margin it was around 9% faster than the i7 10700k so there is that it appears that the lack of L3 cache is hurting performance here given that the core count is identical to the Ryzen 75800x and clock speeds are also much the same and here we're seeing that when looking at single-core performance the Ryzen 7 5700g is slower than the Ryzen 5 5600x though we're only talking about an only 3 reduction in single-thread performance. when compared to AMD's previous best desktop APU the Ryzen 5 3400g we're looking at a 39 increase in single-core performance.

7-zip compression performance is only slightly better than the core i7 10700k and therefore isn't much better than the 6core 5600x or the older 8core 3700x so while the performance is certainly respectable it's not exactly what you might have expected from an eight cores M3 processor decompression performance looks a bit better and here the Ryzen 7 5700g was 9% slower than the 5800x which isn't too bad and it was able to outpace the 1100k so relative to intel it is a good result as seen in the cinebench r20 single thread test the ryzen 7 5700g is slower than the ryzen 5 5600x and as a result, it trailed the 6core zen3 processor by 10 margins when testing with adobe after effects in fact here we're only looking at the performance that's roughly equivalent to the core i5 11400f or ryzen 7 3700x. 

Adobe photoshop again the ryzen 7 5700g is really only able to match the core i5 11400f making it 12% slower than the 5800x and 5% slower than the 5600x then we have the premiere pro 2020 results and here the 5700g was 11% slower than the 5800x as it delivered 3700x /10700k light performance and that made it more like a 6 core zen3 processor rather than an 8core model. 

we have blender the last of the application benchmarks and here the 5700g was 8% slower than the 5800x but almost 20% faster than the 5600x so a reasonable result there as for power consumption as we often saw the 5700 g delivered 3700 x live performance and in terms of power usage it's also very similar and that meant it also matched the 10600 k we're looking at a 15% reduction in total system usage when compared to the 5800x so overall a good level of efficiency from this 8 core APU okay time for some integrated graphics testing so for this data we're using the vega graphics of the 5700g along with the igpu in the 3400g and 11700 then for comparison we have the Radeon RX 550 GeForce gtx 1060 in the 3 and 6-gigabyte versions as well as the Radeon RX 5500xt all of which were tested with the ryzen 5 5600x.

Gaming Benchmarks 

We can see that for a modern and demanding title like Assassin's creed valhalla the 5700 g's vega graphics just isn't powerful enough at least if you want better than a 30fps experience which i'd have to assume is the case we are at 1080p here using the lowest possible quality settings and yet the 5700g was good for just 33 fps on average so the only option here is to drop the resolution down further to something like 720p and at that point things are getting pretty desperate all of that said the ryzen 7 5700g was 32% faster than the 3400g and well a lot faster than the core i7 11700 and therefore is a much better solution than any of the intel desktop LJ 1200 processors when it comes to gaming with the igpu when compared to the discrete graphics cards we're looking at radeon rx 550/geforce gt 1030 light performance so any half decent modern graphics card is going to be miles faster take the radeon rx 5500xt for example that's spat out 88 fps on average the Ryzen 7 5700g is much more usable and less demanding games such as rainbow six siege here it was good for 65 fps on average using the medium quality preset so with low it will be possible to keep frame rates above 60 fps at all times again this was roughly equivalent to rx 550 performance so almost 40% faster than the 3400g which really is a big improvement horizon zero dawn like assassin's creed valhalla has been tested using the lowest possible quality settings at 1080p and again it's not possible to achieve playable performance with the 5700g or any of this iGPU's for that matter shadow of the tomb raider is a much older demanding AAA title but again even with the lowest possible quality settings the Ryzen 7 5700g is not really able to achieve playable performance depending on what you deem playable the game is technically playable at 37 fps but it's not exactly an enjoyable experience at least in my opinion and in fact i'd rather just play an older title in the franchise do maternal on the other hand was playable using the lowest quality settings and the experience wasn't half bad with frame rates staying above 40 fps this is actually a big deal for the 5700g as the 32 performance increase over the 3400g made the game significantly better to play as expected given what we've seen in games such as assassin's creed valhalla and horizon zero dawn it's not really possible to play death stranding with the 5700g as frame rates hovered around 30 fps while this is a massive improvement from the 3400g it's sadly still not very playable so you'd have to drop down to 720p here dirt 5 is somewhat playable with 39fps on average and a 1% low of 33 fps and this was a 22% increase over the 3400g so not quite as impressive in terms of gains compared to what we've seen in other titles but still decent performance overall biomutant is yet another new game that you can't run on the ryzen 7 5700g at 1080p at least not at satisfactory frame rates here we're looking at just 27 fps on average and interestingly that's significantly down on the radeon rx 550 so perhaps there is some sort of driver issue here watchdogs legion also can't be played at 1080p despite using the lowest quality settings here we're looking at just 28fps for the 5700g so the game wasn't playable another new AAA title is outriders and once again despite using the lowest possible quality settings at 1080p the 5700g wasn't able to deliver playable performance and oddly wasn't any faster than the 3400g i suspect this is down to some kind of driver issue and perhaps we saw the same thing in biomutant however a game that you can quite comfortably play is counter-strike global offensive here the 5700g managed 112 fps on average which is a 35% increase over the 3400 g and that pushed us into higher refresh rate territory so that is quite impressive this is more than twice what you get out of the core i7 11700 or really any 11th gen desktop core series processor for that matter finally it is worth noting that this performance was achieved using the medium quality settings so you can increase frame rates further by dropping too low if you wish it was also possible to get up around 60 fps on average an F1 2020 at 1080p using the lowest quality settings and this 28% performance increase over the 3400g was very noticeable and did lead to a much better gaming experience so pretty solid performance there and good news for F1 fans on a budget finally we have dota 2 which has been tested using the highest quality settings and here the 5700g was good for 73fps on average that's a 33% performance boost over the 3400g dialing down the quality settings will net you significantly more performance in dota 2 especially given that the cpu side of things is very powerful with the 5700g so 1440p gameplay will be possible here okay so time for some discrete gpu testing with the geforce RTX 3090 and we'll start with f1 2020. here the Ryzen 7 5700g is comparable to intel's previous generation 8core processor the core i7 10700k so when compared to the 5800x it is 6% slower which really is an insignificant margin especially given we're talking about over 250 fps at 1080p using the rtx 3090 but it's quite clear that halving the L3 cache has reduced performance here the 5700g was also slightly slower than the 5800x when testing with rainbow six siege but we're only talking about a 4% margin here and the APU was good for 485 fps so that is also pretty good that said as far as eight core cpus go it was slower than the 10th and 11th gen core series parts and only 7% faster than the 10600k but still overall a very strong result even if it is a little on the slow side for a zen3 based product next up we have horizon zero dawn and here the Ryzen 7 5700g was 8% slower than the 5800x delivering a 10600k light performance with 151 fps on average again this is quite a good result in the grand scheme of things despite being the slowest zen 3 cpu we've seen the 5700g did struggle a little bit in borderlands 3 averaging 151 fps and that meant it was basically mirroring the performance of the 3700x and 3600. so a bit disappointing there it was also slower than the core i3 10100 and core i7 7700k and a range of other CPUs though it is worth noting this isn't a particularly strong title for ryzen so the 5700g was only 6% slower than the 5800x the margin to the 5800x did widen in watchdogs legion here the 5700g was 12% slower rendering 101 fps on average and once again that meant it was delivering 3700x light performance making it slower than 6 core 10th gen core series processors stranding benefits a lot from the massive L3 cache of the zen 3 chipset CPUs as here the 5800x allowed for 214 fps making it the fastest CPU tested meanwhile the 5700g was 15% slower and that dropped it down to the core i5 11400f though it was still 12% faster than the 3700x so a better result than what we've seen in most of the other games interestingly in the shadow of the tomb raider we saw a massive 20% decline in the performance of the 5700g when compared to the 5800x and that meant it was good for just 132 fps on average again delivering ryzen 7 3700x and core i5 10600k the light performance last up we have hitman 2 and again the 5700g was a lot slower than the 5800x this time trailing by a 15 margin this dropped it down to the core i5 10600k though it was 8% faster than the 3700x so when it comes to more cpu limited gaming with a discrete gpu the ryzen 7 5700g it's not amazing and it appears as though having all the cores crammed into a single die doesn't really help rather the cache capacity plays a much more vital role that said performance isn't bad and it's certainly the best we've ever seen from an amd apu the 5700g is a powerful cpu and it was able to match the gaming performance of the core i5 10600k I think most of you will agree that's a pretty great gaming cpu moreover when compared to the 3400g we're looking at a massive 88% increase in gaming performance so for those of you upgrading to a discrete graphics card, you won't need to start all over again with an entirely new cpu but if you're expecting 5800x levels of performance you might be a bit disappointed to learn that on average the 5700g was 11% slower that said remember we're using a geforce rtx 3090 at 1080p here so those of you gaming at 1440p or higher with an extreme gp or in particular something that's a bit more wallet friendly than an rtx 3090 they'll basically end up being no difference between these two zen 3 based ryzen 7 processors okay so that's how the amd ryzen 7 5700g performs now what to make of it.

This benchmark is based on igpu Ryzen7 5700g.

Pricing

The real question is who is this apu for who in our audience should consider purchasing it now typically recommending these APU's has been pretty straightforward take the ryzen 5 3400g for example at 150$ it was a very affordable processor and with a budget motherboard and memory combo, it was possible to piece together an entry-level platform for well under 400 USD and such a bill was suitable for casual gaming mostly at 720p but it could game and be also excellent for use as a home theater pc the 5700g though it isn't really suitable for budget builds as the ryzen 7 branding would probably imply at 360$ it costs roughly as much as the 3400g with motherboard memory so if you're after a more premium home theater pc setup maybe the 5700g will be suitable depending on the configuration that you're going for right now I feel the most likely use case for our viewers would be to use the integrated graphics of the 5700g as a sort of stopgap solution make do with the vega graphics until you can buy a new graphics card at a reasonable price those of you wishing to build a brand new computer right now can land parts like the ryzen 7 5800x for below the msrp there's also loads of well-priced b550 motherboards on the market 16 gigabytes of ddr4 3200GHz memory that can be had for well under 100$ and availability of all other components is very good to think stuff like cases power supplies and storage the only thing stopping you from building a new computer today is of course graphics card availability and pricing so in a way the 5700g allows you to build now and upgrade the graphics later the only issue with that being that for those of you focused on gaming performance the Ryzen 7 5700g is inferior to the ryzen 5 5600x and yet it costs 60 dollars more I bring this up because for 100$ you can quite comfortably land a geforce gt 1030 on Amazon for 100$ and that'll match or beat the performance of the integrated vega graphics but if you really care about value then you'd ignore amd altogether and just go with intel the core i5 10400f can be had for just 180$ and that affords you a 180$ budget for the graphics card and I've seen second hand gigabyte gtx 1060 selling for roughly that price over the past few weeks so as we saw in the short term that will net you 100% more performance in modern games like assassin's creed valhalla and more critically enable playable frame rates then once you can buy a more powerful graphics card we saw that with the rtx 3090 that the 10400f is basically identical to the Ryzen 7 5700g.

Conclusion

Anyway so, in my opinion, it's going to be very rare that the Ryzen 7 5700g will make sense for gamers in short like all AMD's m3 based processors the ryzen 7 5700g is simply too expensive and in my opinion, for this part to make sense it needs to be priced no more than 300$ of course if you did like this then do give us a Share you can follow for more posts thank you for reading this valuable post I'm your author Ravi Kumar and I'll see you again in the next article.
