AMD Ryzen 4000 APU (Renoir) outperforms PS4 and Xbox One chips in graphics performance

New benchmarks for AMD Ryzen 4000 APUs (Renoir Family) show that these chips outperform the original PS4 and Xbox One.

Recall that the original Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One game consoles were released in 2013 and ran on similar AMD processor architectures, but in significantly different configurations. The PS4 offered better performance at a lower price point. The Xbox One version, on the other hand, had a higher price tag and less impressive specs. In both cases, an 8-core AMD Jaguar processor with a frequency of 1.6 GHz was used (later for the Xbox One, the frequency was increased to 1.75 GHz). Computing cores provided performance at the level of 0.1 teraflops.

More significant differences between the chips could be found in the configuration of the graphics subsystem. In the case of the Sony PS4, an integrated GPU based on the AMD GCN architecture was used, with 1152 stream processors and a theoretical performance of 1.84 teraflops. The Xbox One processor used a GPU also based on AMD GCN architecture, but the number of stream processors was 768, and the overall performance level was 1.3 teraflops. The Xbox One S version received an updated chip with a higher GPU frequency, which led to a performance increase of up to 1.4 teraflops.

And now, almost 7 years later, AMD has released an APU that surpasses the PS4 and Xbox One in terms of performance. The chips have the same number of processing cores, and the number of stream processors in the new APU is less than in the console processors. However, the transition to a thinner 7nm process technology (versus 28nm for console chips) and the advanced Zen 2 and Vega architectures have made significant progress.

For the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G processor, the CPU performance is 1.1 teraflops and the GPU performance is 2.15 teraflops. Thus, the graphics performance of the new product significantly exceeds the capabilities of the GPU chips of the original game consoles. It can also be noted that the new APU is ahead of the processors of the Xbox One S and PS4 Slim consoles, which can now be found on the market for about $ 400. Other APUs in the Renoir series also perform well compared to console processors.

AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G ($ 299) – 3.25 teraflops (2.15 teraflops for GPU); AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G ($ 209) – 2.5 teraflops; AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 4350G ($ 149) – 1.9 teraflops; Sony PlayStation 4 Slim – 1.95 teraflops (1.84 teraflops for GPU); Microsoft Xbox One S – 1.51 teraflops (1.41 teraflops for GPU).

We add that the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G GPU lends itself well to overclocking and can operate at a frequency of up to 2.4 GHz, which provides an increase in graphics performance of up to 2.5 teraflops. This chip allows for decent Full HD performance in games like Assassins Creed Odyssey, GTA V, and Death Stranding.
