In 2020, AMD will be launching their Renoir APUs based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture and we expect better iGPU performance. Previously we had a leaked SiSoft Sandra OpenCL listing that gave us a brief overview of the APU performance.
Now, the tipster @TUM_APISAK found a UserBenchmark comparison between the Vega 10 iGPU in the Picasso APUs versus the undisclosed “Radeon Graphics” iGPU based out of upcoming Renoir APUs. The leaked userbenchmark comparison shows that the Renoir iGPU will get a significant upgrade in graphics performance as compared to previous-gen AMD APUs.
As per the comparison, we see the ‘so-called’ Radeon graphics deliver 65% better performance than the current Vega 10 iGPU. The “Average User Bench” aggregate that combines Lighting, MRender, and Gravity test scores give the upcoming Renoir iGPU a clear win over last gen.
There might be a debate over the current architecture of the iGPU whether it’s Vega or Navi and if there will be a Vega iGPU, the Userbenchmark APU most likely features a 16 CU configuration.
The Vega configuration seen here is quite familiar as we’ve seen before in the Radeon Pro Vega 16, an optional discrete graphics card for 2018 MacBook Pro laptop, featuring this exact shader configuration. From the Radeon Pro Vega 16 performance figures, we can get a fair idea of the new Renoir iGPU performance which will most likely perform on par with the GTX 1050 Ti.
AMD’s CES 2020 Keynote is coming in just a few days, so hopefully, we get all the details regarding these speculations there and eventually get high performing APUs this 2020.
