A kind South Korean YouTuber AMD’s 4700S Desktop Kit Pace through it. Although the kit is only available for OEMs, the chip manufacturer said that we expect as many as 80 different systems to be launched on the market soon.Based on what we have seen, it may not have any effect Best CPU The list, if only because it is only available as a complete kit.
Initially, it was speculated that the AMD 4700S was Recycled Xbox Series X APUHowever, the latest photos of the chip show a striking similarity to the APU (code name Ariel) inside the chip. Game console 5. AMD 4700S is soldered to the motherboard using A77E Fusion Controller Hub (code name Bolton-E4). A77E hub and AMD’s A9-9820, The chip that powers the Xbox One S. This little detail makes us believe that AMD 4700S is somewhat related to the Xbox Series X APU (codenamed Arden). However, AMD 4700S may be a defective chip and did not make it to PlayStation 5.
AMD 4700S has 8 Zen 2 execution cores and 16 threads, equipped with 8MB of L3 cache and 4MB of L2 cache. The eight-core chip is equipped with a 3.6 GHz base clock, but lacks an integrated graphics engine. AMD 4700S can be equipped with 8GB or 16GB of soldered GDDR6 memory.
Obviously, the use of GDDR6 memory has its ups and downs. On the positive side, the AMD 4700S performs well in terms of memory bandwidth.compared to Ryzen 7 3800XT And DDR4-2666 C20 memory, AMD 4700S read, write and copy throughput increased by 65%, 260% and 172% respectively. However, the chip suffered a great loss in terms of memory latency. The memory latency of AMD 4700S is 60% higher than that of Ryzen 7 3800XT.
Unfortunately, YouTuber did not perform many application tests on AMD 4700S. It will be interesting to see how memory bandwidth and latency affect other areas. For example, in the comparison of Cinebench R20, the performance of Ryzen 7 3800XT is 36% higher than AMD 4700S.
Although both processors are equipped with 8 Zen 2 cores with simultaneous multithreading (SMT), Ryzen 7 3800XT does advertise higher base clocks (3.9 GHz and 3.6 GHz), higher boost clocks and More L3 cache (32MB and 8MB). Although we don’t know the TDP (Thermal Design Power) of the AMD 4700S, considering the moderate factory cooler of the AMD 4700S, it should be lower than the 105W rating of the Ryzen 7 3800XT.
Without iGPU, AMD 4700S must rely on discrete graphics like any other Ryzen desktop processor. Sadly, the AMD 4700S is located on the motherboard, where the PCIe 2.0 x16 expansion slot (electrically connected via x4) is the only expansion option.
According to AMD, the list of compatible graphics cards revolves around AMD’s Radeon 550, RX 550, RX 560, RX 570, RX 580 and RX 590, as well as GeForce GT 710, GT 1030, GTX 1050, GTX and GTX 1050 1060 from Nvidia. camp.Nevertheless, YouTube is still GeForce RTX 3060 Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. The results provided in the table correspond to the average frame rate.
|processor||Overwatch||Horizon zero dawn||PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds|
|AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT||194 frames/sec||86 frames/sec||167 frames/sec|
|AMD 4700S||141 frames/sec||54 frames/sec||172 frames/sec|
The average frame rate of Ryzen 7 3800XT has increased by 36% and 59% Overwatch with Horizon zero dawn, Respectively. Surprisingly, AMD 4700S successfully defeated Ryzebn 7 3800XT PlayerUnknown’s battlefield A slight drop of 3%.
Although he did not provide any results Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G, YouTuber pointed out in the comments that the performance of AMD 4700S is slightly inferior to Zen 2 APU. The biggest disappointment of AMD 4700S is the disabling or lack of integrated graphics, forcing consumers to invest in graphics cards.Due to PCIe 2.0 x16 @ x4 limitation, it doesn’t make much sense to pair AMD 4700S with high-end graphics cards, which excludes most Best graphics card.
Unfortunately, the AMD 4700S Desktop Kit can only be obtained through a pre-built system. You end up paying for hardware that you don’t necessarily need, such as SSDs, graphics cards, power supplies, and chassis. Even if it is not used for games, AMD 4700S may become the basis of an excellent mini-ITX system.
