AMD Ryzen 7 5700G Quick Review: Great All-In-One CPU Package

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is an 8-core, 16-thread CPU that marks the grand debut of AMD’s first “Cezanne” Zen 3 APU chip made for desktop PCs. The Cezanne chips were previously used only in OEM PCs, until it officially launched for the retail market on the 5th of August 2021.

With the pandemic triggering supply chain disruptions and component shortages along with the re-emergence of crypto mining, it created the worst GPU shortages we’ve seen. Though it might be a tad bit late, it’s still better than never, and AMD’s latest APU aims to address those problems, somewhat.

Coming with Zen 3 execution cores, the Cezanne CPUs aim to address a few problems by pairing the chip with Radeon Vega graphics engine. The chip doesn’t only solve the graphics issue if you don’t intend to use dedicated graphics, it also comes bundled with a Wraith Stealth cooler to further sweeten the deal. It seems to pretty much be an all-in-one package if you want no fuss when it comes to building a new PC.

Specifications

AMD Ryzen™ 7 5700G – RM1,639.00 (inclusive tax) / AMD Ryzen™ 5 5600G – RM1,239.00 (inclusive tax)

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G has a TDP of 65W, and it features 8 cores with 16 threads with a 3.8GHz base and a 4.6GHz boost clock. There’s 16MB of L3 cache onboard, as well as 8 Radeon RX Vega CUs that operate at 2.0GHz. Just like the other Zen 3 processors, the Cezanne chips also use the DDR4-3200 interface, further enhancing the gaming experience with integrated GPUs. Comparing this to the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X we recently reviewed, you’re getting the Radeon Graphics but also losing 100MHz of peak boost clocks and half the L3 cache. You also retreat from 24 lanes of PCIe 4.0 to 24 lanes of PCIe 3.0.

Currently in the market, only the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G and the 5600G have hit retail shelves, and that is also a 65W 6-core 12-thread APU with 3.9GHz base, 4.4GHz boost, and seven Radeon Vega CUs that operate at 1.9GHz. Both these chips use the same SoC for the Ryzen 5000 series mobile chips and the Ryzen 5000G desktop PC APUs.

Test Build

Our humble test build used to test the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G are as specced below. We’ve swapped out our mainstay Ryzen 5 3600X processor for the newer 5000-G series chip, and we’ve also upgraded to a newer Zotac GeForce RTX 3070 GPU. Everything else remains the same.

Performance

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G

Here are some of the test/benchmarks we ran on the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G, including creative software like Cinebench R20 and Blender, several games at 1080p settings, as well as some synthetic benchmarks from 3D Mark. Temps are well managed throughout testing, with temperatures staying at a somewhat consistent 55 to 60-degrees.

Conclusion

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G offers great power efficiency and when it comes to thermals, the processor barely broke a sweat with our Fractal Design Celsius S36 cooler. It was still performing decently at peak temps of mid 60-degrees. Considering that its eight compute units of Radeon Vega graphics can offer almost 50 FPS in Metro Exodus at low settings, it’s pretty good for the money. Casual games like Dota 2, Overwatch, and etc, are no sweat.

It offers great overall performance, and if you’re not fussy about the specifics, you’ll be able to look past the lower cache and downgrade from PCIe 4.0 to PCIe 3.0. Also, while the GPU offers class leading graphics performance, the statement of integrated graphics not being able to provide the performance of low-end discrete GPUs? That still rings true.

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G

The main takeaway of the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is that has great convenience, decent processing and graphics performance in one small package, keeping within the 65W TDP envelope. Want to build an super capable HTPC or SFF machine? The 5700G is definitely a great choice. Or if you need something to tide you over till GPU availability returns to normal, this would be a sweet choice too.
