The AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen has been launched amidst great fanfare at the Computex. But the lower-priced variants and successors to the cheap Ryzen CPUs are yet to hit the market. Recently popular Tech publication TomsHardware got a chance to benchmark the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G at the Computex show floor. And they left no stone unturned and showed us quite a lot about what this yet unreleased CPU is actually capable of!
Ryzen 5 3400G: The lowdown!
The processor was on a test bench containing a Colorful CVN X570 V20 motherboard. This was the first time people saw this chip running on an X570 motherboard.
The Ryzen 5 3400G scored a single core score of 162 and multi-core performance was 712 on the CineBench R15.
There can be some degree of error as this chip could be a pre-release version and things might become even better with the retail version.
From what’s known about this CPU till now it’s clear that this is a quad-core CPU with support for hyperthreading. The base clock is 3.8 GHz which is pretty respectable. The max boost clock goes up to 4.2 GHz.
It comes with an unlocked multiplier and the cache memory is of 4 MB. The Ryzen 5 3400G comes with integrated Vega 11 graphics. But details about the number of streaming processors etc. aren’t public yet. The internal GPU is clocked at 1335 MHz which is a significant boost from the last generation. There’s no official word on the Thermal design power as of now but these processors aren’t 7nm based like the Ryzen 3000 series desktop processors.
So don’t expect too many changes here. The 3400G has the Zen+ Microarchitecture based on a 12nm+ processor. The codename too is different from the 7nm processors.
From what the guys at Tomshardware tested it was pretty clear that the RAM was underclocked at 2400 Mhz and the CPU might have support for up to DDR4 3200 MHz memory.
AMD Ryzen 5 3400G benchmarks and details
Keep in mind that AMD hasn’t officially announced these chips yet so there’s no word on the availability or pricing of the Ryzen 5 3400G.
Here are all of the CPUZ, AIDA 64, Firestrike and Cinebench score photos, all credits go to TomsHardware!
The CPU-Z benchmark scores portray it almost as powerful as an Intel Core i7 7700K. If that’s really the case and AMD prices this CPU aggressively then it will be a great choice for a lot of people! The current expected pricing is around the $150 mark which would be around 11K INR. That’s some serious value for money right there!
So guys what do you think? Is AMD gonna dominate the CPU market completely with these new chips? Do let us know what you think in the comments section below!
