While AMD is expected to announce its Renoir APUs for desktops tomorrow, it is time to talk about the AMD Ryzen 7 4700G, which continues to amaze, and this monolithic design APU continues to impress in all aspects, and this time it. It does overclock again and is that it is capable of doing what no AMD Ryzen CPU has been able to do, which is to offer a frequency of 5.00 GHz in its 8 cores, or well, almost, 4.96 GHz to be exact.
This was possible thanks to a Gigabyte B550 AORUS Master motherboard along with a memory configuration of 16 GB of DDR4 @ 2133 MHz RAM in Dual Channel, and in this case, the liquid nitrogen was not used despite the voltage of 1,519v, it was He achieved with a water cooling system AIO 360 mm where the radiator had been put into a bucket of ice, which is a stand.
Unfortunately, there are no performance tests, but little is needed when we saw that at 4.50 / 4.60 GHz, and cooled with a high-end commercial cooling system, it struggled with an Intel Core i9-10900K despite having two cores and four extra processing threads.
Another detail to take into account is that the AMD B550 platform supports memory up to 5400 MHz without problems, thus showing that the Matisse platform is worse than the Renoir based on the management of overclocking, memory and performance. On the other hand, it was indicated that a Crucial Ballistix Gaming @ 5100 MHz memory kit starts without problems on the platform when choosing the XMP profile on the B550 platform.
