While AMD is set to launch their Raven Ridge APUs in Feb 2018, the new chips are expected to offer greater performance than a Zen CPU paired with a Vega iGPU. If the expectations are met, AMD fans should be getting a solid upgrade in performance. There was another recent leak of AMD Ryzen 7 2700U performance.
The AMD Ryzen 7 2700U according to the leaked benchmarks has performed really well. Well enough to be equal to that of the MX 150 (GT 1030) mobile GPU performance. The scores in 3DMark 11 say that the chip did 4072 in graphics, 6419 in physics, 4212 overall and 3353 combine scores.
The results came close to Intel’s Core i7-8550U IGP. Where as in Graphics processing it dominated the same Intel’s iGPU with a differential gain of 2300 points. Take it with a grain of salt, but this leak results are sure impressive and judging from the mobile GPU performance scores all under a TDP of 35W.
AMD Ryzen 7 2700U power draw takes it well above the ultrabooks category and falls into the notebooks category with powerful mobile GPUs.
Though the true power consumption of these Ryzen 7 2700U systems is still high, AMD did claim for some time that it will show the ability to compete with Intel, for the first time in several generations.
If these solutions fall within the 35W bracket, which would be at lower than the typical 15-watt Intel CPU Plus 25-watt NVIDIA discrete GPU ‘combined’, AMD may have a winning combination for mobile performance users to entertain.
AMD Ryzen 7 2700U from the leaks is an APU that’s basically an iGPU + CPU with 35W of TDP. The results are closing in with MX 150 in graphics and i78550U in physics processing. The power efficiency will take the lead and laptops driving this chip will probably deliver longer battery timing and generate lower amounts of heat. Hopefully, if these figures are true.
