AMD Recently Released APUsRyzen 4000 Renoir has a huge power potential, surpassing the performance of the current PS4 and Xbox One gaming consoles. This is achieved by using 7nm technology in Ryzen 4000, while modern consoles from Sony and Microsoft used processors manufactured in 28nm process technology.
The first original Sony PS4 game consoles andMicrosoft Xbox One was launched back in 2013 with identical AMD processor architectures, but in different configurations. At the same time, Sony was able to offer users devices with higher characteristics, at lower prices, and the Microsoft set-top box was more expensive, but with lower technical characteristics.
For both models of consoles,AMD Jaguar processors with 8 cores (1.6 GHz). Microsoft later increased the processor frequency to 1.75 GHz, and the processor performance reached 0.1 TFLOP.
It should be noted that GPUs,responsible for the bulk of the power of the consoles had completely different configurations. Sony's PS4 has an AMD GCN-based GPU with 1152 threads, providing a theoretical compute power of 1.84 TFLOPs. The Microsoft console was equipped with an AMD GCN GPU with 768 threads and set the stage for a theoretical computing power of 1.3 TFLOPs. Microsoft was able to slightly improve performance in the Xbox One S consoles. By increasing the clock frequency of the GPU, a power of 1.4 TFLOPs was achieved.
7 years later, AMD launchesprocessors capable of surpassing the performance of the PS4 and Xbox One game consoles. AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs are engineered on TSMC's all-new 7nm process technology and feature two key technologies: Zen 2 CPU and Enhanced Vega GPU. Despite the same number of CPU cores and even lower number of GPU cores, Renoir APUs offer significantly higher performance.
For example, according to the benchmark, Ryzen 7PRO 4750G achieves 1.1 TFLOP CPU performance and 2.15 TFLOP GPU power. These figures are significantly higher than the original consoles offered seven years ago. Meanwhile, the more advanced Xbox One S and PS4 Slim consoles, which now cost $ 400, are also inferior in performance to the cheaper AMD Renoir Ryzen 4000 APUs.
To assemble a computer system, you will needalthough there is also a motherboard, RAM, power supply and storage, but according to experts, the price of computers on AMD Renoir Ryzen 4000 APU will be comparable to consoles and will allow you to achieve higher gaming performance than consoles that are currently relevant today.
AMD Renoir processors of various modificationswill be able to deliver the following power: AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G ($ 299) - 3.25 TFLOP (2.15 TFLOP for GPU, AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G ($ 209)) - 2.5 TFLOP and AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 4350G (149 dollars) - 1.9 TFLOP. At the same time, the Sony PlayStation 4 Slim gives out 1.95 TFLOP (1.84 TFLOP for the GPU), and Microsoft Xbox One S - 1.51 TFLOP (1.41 TFLOP for the GPU).
In addition, the 7nm Vega GPU onThe Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G has enormous overclocking potential, hitting 2.4GHz clock speeds and boosting power to 2.5 TFLOPs. As a result, players will be able to play Assassins Creed Odyssey, GTA V and Death Stranding at 1080p. The competition between consoles and computers will continue and escalate with the release of new consoles from Sony and Microsoft this year.
