The latest AMD Ryzen 5 8600G APU processor offers outstanding gaming performance with its powerful integrated graphics core. Recent tests conducted on the Geekbench platform have revealed that the graphical capability of this APU processor is almost equivalent to that of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 desktop graphics card, despite the latter being a seven-year-old GPU. This is an impressive result for an integrated GPU processor.
The Ryzen 5 8600G utilizes the Radeon 760M mid-range graphics core, which operates at a high frequency of 2.8 GHz. The GPU performance of the Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards in overclocking mode achieves the same level of performance. However, it’s important to note that the Radeon 760M doesn’t have its own memory; instead, it utilizes a portion of the system’s RAM for graphics processing. The AMD Ryzen 5 8600G comes with a built-in dual-channel memory controller, which, in combination with DDR5-6000 memory, enables the achievement of maximum results and the utilization of the full potential of the integrated graphics core.
In the Vulkan test, the Ryzen 5 8600G scored an impressive 30,770 points, while in the OpenCL benchmark, it achieved 24,842 points. Both of these results are remarkable for an integrated graphics core and represent a significant step forward for the popularity of APU chips. According to this data, the Radeon 760M has proven to be slightly better than Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards.
Furthermore, the desktop version of the Radeon 760M integrated graphics on the Ryzen 5 8600G has surpassed the mobile version in Vulkan and OpenCL tests. Due to improved cooling, the desktop version has managed to achieve higher operating frequencies and extract the maximum from its capabilities.
The new AMD Ryzen 5 8600G APU promises to be an excellent choice for gamers who do not have enough money to purchase a separate graphics card. Its performance is more than sufficient for most of today’s games, especially when played at lower resolutions and with less demanding graphical settings. This is particularly true for many popular Battle Royale titles. The AMD Ryzen 5 8600G is expected to be unveiled at the CES 2024 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, USA.
