Woah! The onboard graphics on the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U mobile processor is almost as powerful as a GeForce MX250.
Taken from Extremetech … Early benchmarks of the Ryzen 7 4800U’s integrated graphics solution suggest that the 15W APU can nearly keep pace with an Intel system equipped with a GeForce MX250. While the MX250 is a modest performance target, it’s still impressive to see AMD fielding this kind of horsepower in a 15W TDP bracket.
This information comes from a Sina Weibo user who compared an engineering prototype of the 4800U with a handful of Lenovo Xiaoxin laptops. Given that the 4800U system is a prototype, performance could be different in the final shipping version.
The early data, however, suggests that the 4800U will perform well, nearly matching a low-end discrete card from Nvidia when paired with Core i5-10210U (4C/8T, 1.6GHz base, 4.2GHz boost).
Exact data isn’t provided for League of Legends, hence the “>90,” and the Intel Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7 apparently couldn’t run Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but the other results show the 4800U against the MX250 and the 4600U. The Comet Lake CPU used DDR4-2666 modules, while Ice Lake and AMD’s Ryzen Mobile 4000 CPUs both used DDR4-3200.
The MX250 that AMD nearly catches is a Pascal-era GPU in a 384:24:16 configuration. Nvidia is reportedly prepping MX330 and MX350 refreshes to this GPU family that would substantially increase overall performance and re-create a meaningful performance gap between an iGPU-based AMD APU and a system with a discrete Nvidia GPU, even at the low end. This is all to the good — boosting the performance of integrated graphics should spur AMD, Nvidia, and Intel to continually improve their entry-level discrete products. What I find noteworthy is the way integrated graphics have continued to improve over time.
