AMD Smart Access Memory (Resizable BAR) Guide

Find out what AMD Smart Access Memory is all about, and how to turn it on for a FREE BOOST in performance!

 

Smart Access Memory : PCIe Resizable BAR for AMD!

Smart Access Memory is AMD’s marketing term for their implementation of the PCI Express Resizable BAR (Base Address Registers) capability.

What does that mean exactly?

CPUs are traditionally limited to a 256 MB I/O memory address region for the GPU frame buffer. This of it as an “data dump” for stuff like textures, shaders and geometry.

Since this “data dump” is limited to 256 MB, the CPU can only send texture, shader and geometry data as and when the GPU requires them.

This introduces some latency – delay from when the GPU requires the data, and the CPU send them.

Turning on Resizable BAR or Smart Access Memory greatly expands the size of that data dump, letting the CPU directly access the GPU’s entire frame buffer memory.

Instead of transferring data when requested by the GPU, the CPU processes and stores the data directly in the graphics memory.

Graphics assets can be transferred to graphics memory in full, instead of in pieces. In addition, multiple transfers can occur simultaneously, instead of being queued up.

While this AMD graphic above suggests that Smart Access Memory will widen the memory path (and thus memory bandwidth) between the CPU and GPU, that is not true.

Smart Access Memory / Resizable BAR will not increase memory bandwidth.

What it does is let the CPU directly access the entire GPU frame buffer memory, instead of using the usual 256 MB “dump”. That reduces latency because the graphics assets are now accessible by the GPU at all times.

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : Performance Gains

According to AMD, enabling Smart Access Memory will give you a small but free boost of 5% to 11% in gaming performance.

Here is a summary of the test results from our article, RX 6800 XT Smart Access Memory Performance Comparison!

You can expect up to 16% better performance in some games, but no effect in certain games. But overall, you get a free boost in performance. There is simply no reason not to enable Smart Access Memory.

1080p Resolution (1920 x 1080)

1440p Resolution (2560 x 1440)

2160p Resolution (3840 x 2160)

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : Requirements

Since Smart Access Memory is just an AMD implementation of PCI Express Resizable BAR. Therefore, it can be be implemented for all PCI Express 3.0 and PCI Express 4.0 graphics cards and motherboards.

However, AMD is currently limiting it to a small subset of components, having validated it only for their new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, select Ryzen 3000 Series Processors and Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.

So this is what you currently require to enable AMD Smart Access Memory :

Hardware

Software

  • AMD Radeon Software Driver 20.11.2 or newer
  • Latest Motherboard BIOS (AMD AGESA 1.1.0.0 or newer)

AMD currently recommends these X570 motherboards, because they have updated BIOS available :

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : How To Enable It?

If you have all of those supported components above, and updated your motherboard BIOS, you need to manually enable Smart Access Memory.

Now, the method will vary from motherboard to motherboard, and it probably won’t even be called Smart Access Memory.

Instead, look for variations of Above 4G Decoding, or Resizing BAR, or Resizable BAR, or Re-Size BAR Support.

AMD Generic Method

AMD has provided these generic steps to enable Smart Access Memory :

  1. Enter the System BIOS by press <DEL> or <F12> during the system startup.
  2. Navigate to the Advanced Settings or Advanced menu.
  3. Enable “Above 4G Decoding” and “Re-Size BAR Support“.
  4. Save the changes and restart the computer.

Step-by-Step Method For ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero

In our guide, we are using the ASUS CROSSHAIR VIII Hero (AMD X570) motherboard, as an example :

  1. First you will need to turn off CSM (Compatibility Support Module), or make sure it’s disabled.Go to the Boot menu and look for a CSM / Compatibility Support Module option.

  1. Set CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to Disabled.

  1. Go to the Advanced menu and look for the PCI Subsystem. In other motherboards, look for PCIe / PCI Express configuration options.

  1. Enable Above 4G Decoding.

  1. This will give you access to the Re-Size BAR Support option. Set it to Auto.

  1. Now go to the Exit menu, and select Save Changes & Reset.

  1. It will ask you to confirm the changes. Just verify both, and click OK.

After the motherboard reboots, AMD Smart Access Memory (PCIe Resizable BAR) will be enabled for your Ryzen 5000 series CPU and Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card!

 

CSM Warning For GIGABYTE AORUS X570 Master

AMD currently recommends these X570 motherboards, because they have updated BIOS available :

CSM is disabled by default for the ASUS, ASRock and MSI motherboards. However, it is enabled by default in the GIGABYTE AORUS X570 Master.

If you installed Windows without first turning CSM off, it will be configured as non-UEFI. It will NOT boot if you enable Resizable BAR Support (Smart Access Memory).

You will need to reinstall Windows with CSM support disabled.

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : Adaptive Undervolting Comes To Ryzen!

AMD just introduced Precision Boost Overdrive 2 (PBO2), which introduces adaptive undervolting for Ryzen processors, amongst other improvements.

Find out what Precision Boost Overdrive 2 offers, and what effect it has on performance of AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors!

 

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : Improved Overclocking + Adaptive Undervolting!

Precision Boost Overdrive is the dynamic overclocking capability built into AMD Ryzen processors, with these features :

  • raises socket power limit
  • raises motherboard VRM limit
  • can override max boost frequency
  • primarily designed to improve multi-thread performance

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 (PBO2) comes with all of the original PBO features, as well as these new features :.

  • improved single-thread performance
  • adds adaptive undervolting capability
  • adds standalone undervolting capability for AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processors
  • improved performance per watt.
  • can lower operating temperatures.
  • ability to customise voltages and frequencies to a specific processor.

 

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : Curve Optimizer

The new adaptive undervolting capability in Precision Boost Overdrive 2 (PBO2) is achieved through the Curve Optimizer.

The new Curve Optimizer tells the firmware what window of undervolting is desired, and adapts to both light and heavy workloads.

Undervolting, however, will not be done with raw millivolts. Instead, it will be applied with “counts“.

  • 1 Count is approximately 3 mV ~ 5 mV. This range means less undervolting during high loads, and more undervolting when the load is lower.
  • You can adjust the voltage by +/- 30 Counts. 30 Counts would be a range of 90~150 mV.
  • The adjustments can be applied per core, or on all cores.

The Curve Optimizer algorithm is adaptive – so it will automatically underplot when the circumstances are suitable, and restore voltage when it needs to.

 

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : Performance Boost

According to AMD, PBO2 offers better single-threaded performance than the original PBO.

Enabling it will let the Ryzen 7 5800X deliver 2.6% better 1T performance in CINEBENCH R20, while the Ryzen 9 5900X delivers 2% better 1T performance.

Hardly earth-shattering performance, but hey, it’s free!

Multi-threaded performance also gets a small but nice boost from PBO2.

AMD says the Ryzen 7 5800X should get a 2.2% boost, while the Ryzen 9 5900X gets a very nice 10% boost in multi-threaded performance!

 

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : System Requirements

Here are the system requirements for Precision Boost Overdrive 2 to work :

  • AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor
  • AMD 500 or 400 Series motherboard
  • Motherboard BIOS based on AMD AGESA 1.1.8.0 or later

The PBO2 update is available for all AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors through a motherboard BIOS upgrade available in December 2020.

AMD Zen 3 Tech Report : What’s New, What’s Unchanged?

Take a look at what’s new in the AMD Zen 3 microarchitecture, and what they borrowed from the last-gen Zen 2 microarchitecture!

 

AMD Zen 3 Architecture

Codename Vermeer, Zen 3 is the next evolution of the AMD Zen architecture.

While it obviously borrowed considerably from the existing Zen 2 architecture, AMD says it is a ground-up redesign that with major performance and functionality improvements in every area of the core.

These architectural changes allow Zen 3-based processors, like the Ryzen 5000 series, to deliver a 19% improvement in instructions per clock (IPC).

Front-End Enhancements

  • Faster fetching, especially for branchy and large-footprint code
  • L1 branch target buffer doubled in size to 1024 entries for better prediction latency
  • Improved branch predictor bandwidth
  • Faster recovery from misprediction
  • “No bubble” prediction capabilities to make back-to-back predictions more quickly and better handle branchy code
  • Faster sequencing of op-cache fetches
  • Finer granularity in switching of op-cache pipes

Execution Engines

  • Reduce latency and enlarge structures to extract higher instruction-level parallelism (ILP)
  • New dedicated branch and st-data pickers for integer, now at 10 issues per cycle (+3 vs. Zen 2)
  • Larger integer window at +32 vs. Zen 2
  • Reduced latency for select float and int operations
  • Floating point has increased bandwidth by +2 for a total of 6-wide dispatch and issue
  • Floating point FMAC is now 1 cycle faster

Load Store

  • Larger structures and better prefetching to support the enhanced execution engine bandwidth
  • Overall higher bandwidth to feed the appetite of the larger/faster execution resources
  • Higher load bandwidth vs. Zen 2 by +1
  • Higher store bandwidth vs. Zen 2 by +1
  • More flexibility in load/store operations
  • Improved memory dependence detection
  • +4 table walkers in the TLB

SOC Architecture

  • Reduce dependency on main memory accesses, reduce core-to-core latency, reduce core-to-cache latency.
  • Unify all cores in a CCD into a single unified complex consisting of 4, 6, or 8 contiguous cores
  • Unify all L3 cache in a CCD into a single contiguous element of up to 32 MB
  • Rearchitect core/cache communication into a ring system

 

AMD Zen 3 SoC Design

In addition to micro architectural improvements, Zen 3 (Vermeer) also features SoC design changes.

In Zen 2, each CCD (Compute Die) is made up of two CCX (core complexes), each with a 16 MB L3 cache.

Zen 3 uses a unified complex, in which each CCD now contains a single CCX with a unified 32 MB L3 cache.

This unified CCD design completely eliminates CCX-to-CCX communication, greatly improving core-to-core latency.

On the other hand, AMD reused the chiplet design, with one or two CCDs (fabricated on 7 nm) paired with a 12 nm IOD (I/O Die).

Reads from CCD to IO are still 2X write, to conserve die area and transistor budget. And it uses the same IOD from Matisse (Zen 2).

 

AMD Zen 3 Transistor Count + Die Size

The new Zen 3 CCD has 4.15 billion transistors, with a die size of 80.7 mm². That’s up from the 3.8 billion transistors and a die size of 74 mm² for the Zen 2 CCD.

The Matisse-era IOD remains the same – 2.09 billion transistors, with a die size of 125 mm².

They will both be manufactured using the same 7 nm TSMC process for CCD, and 12 nm Global Foundries process for IOD.

Core Die Zen 3 Zen 2
Process 7 nm TSMC
Transistors 4.15 billion 3.8 billion
Die Size 80.7 mm² 74 mm²
I/O Die Zen 3 Zen 2
Process 12 nm GoFlo
Transistors 2.09 billion
Die Size 125 mm²

 

AMD Zen 3 Precision Boost : No Change

Precision Boost 2 in Zen 3 remains the same as that of Zen 2, just with higher frequencies to “play with”.

It is an opportunistic boost algorithm that drives the loaded cores to the highest possible frequency, until it hits any one of these limits :

  • socket power
  • VRM thermal limit
  • VRM current limit
  • maximum clock speed

Precision Boost 2 will dynamically analyse and boost or dither the core clock speeds every 1 ms using the Infinity Fabric command and control functions.

In this example of the new Ryzen 9 5900X with a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a boost clock of 4.8 GHz, Precision Boost 2 will typically result in frequencies of 4.4 GHz to 4.6 GHz, even with 24 threads running at the same time.

 

AMD Zen 3 Voltage Range : No Change

Despite the changes in the microarchitecture and SoC design, Zen 3 processors will continue to be engineered with the same voltage range as Zen- and Zen 2-based processors.

The typical voltage range will vary according to usage, but basically, Zen 3 processors, like the Ryzen 5000 series, will support 0.2 V to 1.5 V.

 

AMD Zen 3 Temperature Range : No Change

AMD Zen 3-based processors will also have the same temperature ranges as Zen- and Zen 2-based processors.

Note : The temperature range below assumes an enclosed chassis, and an air-conditioned room.

 

AMD Zen 3 Memory Overclocking : No Change

Only the Zen 3 core chiplet die (CCD) is new in the Ryzen 5000 series processors. They continue to use the same IO die (IOD) as the 3rd Gen Ryzen processors.

Therefore, the relationship between Infinity Fabric Clock (fclk), Memory Controller Clock (uclk) and Memory Clock (mclk) remains the same.

For optimal performance, they are synchronous – in a 1:1:1 ratio. But users can choose a 1:1:2 ratio if they have trouble overclocking memory.

Unboxing The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X comes in a slimmer box, because it doesn’t come with any bundled cooler.

The last-generation Ryzen 7 3800X, you may recall, came with the Wraith Prism cooler.

 

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Up Close!

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X has eight Ryzen processor cores, with a 3.8 GHz base clock, and a 4.7 GHz boost clock.

It has a 105 watt TDP, and supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), which means it can handle up to 16 threads simultaneously.

Like the 3rd Gen Ryzen, it has 512 KB L2 cache per core, for a 4 MB L2 cache size; and a large 32 MB L3 cache.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X can be installed unto existing AMD 500 series motherboards, and later, the AMD 400 series as well, after a simple BIOS update.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : 3D Rendering Speed

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

Look at that! What a phenomenal boost in single-core performance!

The Ryzen 7 5800X broke past the 600 mark, and was 22.5% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X, even though it only has a 6.8% higher boost clock!

That works out to a 14.7% better performance per clock, over the last-generation Ryzen.

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

A score of almost 6000! That’s 23.6% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X, which is also an 8-core, 16-thread processor.

It was actually 58.8% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X, which makes it a great upgrade for the older 8-core, 16-thread processor.

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides.

Interestingly, the Ryzen 7 5800X has better SMT performance than the Ryzen 5 5600X, even though they both use a single CCD.

 

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Transcoding Speed

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

That’s a nice speed bump! The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was 10.4% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X and 33.8% faster than Ryzen 7 2700X.

 

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Radial Blur Speed

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on Photoshop 2020 using a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

This is a big boost in performance! The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was 24.5% faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X and 42.3% faster than both Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 5600X.

Synthetic Game Test : 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which supports DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was 14.3% faster than Ryzen 7 3700X, and 33% faster than Ryzen 7 2700X.

Of course, the CPU only has a slight influence on a game’s performance, so its effect on the overall gaming score is less significant.

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X was 20% faster than Ryzen 7 3700X, and 40% faster than Ryzen 5 5600X.

Now check out the processors’ effect on the overall gaming score… Obviously, CPU performance only has a small effect at this resolution.

 

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019. We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X delivered 6.5% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X, and 12.5% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 2700X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution though, the effect of CPU performance was negligible, even with the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K resolution, processor performance had no effect. The game was graphics-limited, not CPU-limited.

World War Z

Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively recent third-person shooter game, released in April 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that! The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X topped this comparison, tying with the Ryzen 5 5600X.

It delivered 17% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X, and 21% higher frame rates than the Core i7-8700K.

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped the resolution up to 1440p, it really didn’t matter that much which processor we used. They all performed about the same.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K resolution, processor performance had absolutely no effect. The game was completely graphics-limited.

 

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade is a third-person shooter game, released in August 2018. We tested it in three resolutions using the Vulkan API at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

CPU performance had only a small effect on frame rates in Strange Brigade, even at 1080p.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, they were virtually all equal in performance. The game was already graphics-limited.

2160p Gaming Resolution

It was the same at 4K, of course – the game was completely graphics-limited.

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter game, released in February 2019. We tested it in three resolutions using the Ultra settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440 pixels
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160 pixels

1080p Gaming Resolution

Metro Exodus is graphics-intensive, so CPU performance has limited effect on its frame rate.

1440p Gaming Resolution

All of the processors performed the same at 1440p, with a slight edge to the Core i7-8700K.

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K, the game was completely graphics-limited, so it didn’t matter which processor we tested.

 

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a 2016 game that supports multi-core processing and asynchronous compute.

In this game, the single core CPU performance has a significant effect on the actual frame rate.

We tested it on three resolutions using the DirectX 12 API at the High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160

1080p Gaming Resolution

Nice! The Ryzen 7 5800X delivered 11% higher frame rates than the Core i7-8700K, and 13% higher frame rates than the Ryzen 7 3700X.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, the Ryzen 7 5800X delivered 15.5% higher frame rates than both the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 3700X.

2160p Gaming Resolution

Even at 4K, CPU performance mattered in Ashes of the Singularity. The Ryzen 7 5800X delivered 12% higher frame rates than both the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 3700X.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Our Verdict!

Thanks to the new Zen 3 core optimisations and SoC design, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X offers a nice leap forward in performance.

Its single-core performance has been improved significantly over its predecessors, and so has its multi-core performance, offering a nice boost to both content creation and gaming performance.

Gamers will favour the cheaper Ryzen 5 5600X, but this is a great option for those who also need serious multi-core performance for content creation work.

It offers a large performance boost over the Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 2700X in both content creation and gaming performance.

Another great point about the Ryzen 7 5800X – even though it uses a new microarchitecture, it continues to use the AM4 socket

If you have an existing AMD 500 Series motherboard, you can pop it in after a BIOS upgrade.

Those on AMD 400 Series motherboards will have to wait until Q1 2020, before they receive BIOS upgrades to support Zen 3.

But while the Ryzen 7 5800X’s performance may be a leap forward, so is its price tag…

You may recall that the last-generation Ryzen 7 3800X had a launch price of $399 (RM1,799), with a nice Wraith Prism cooler.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X costs substantially more at $449 (RM2,049), and no longer comes with a very nice bundled cooler!

On the other hand, it comes with a free copy of the upcoming game – Far Cry 6 Standard Edition...

So who should, or should NOT, buy the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X?

  • Buy : If you want the best possible 8-core processor for a new gaming or content creation system.
  • Buy : If you are upgrading from a first-generation Ryzen processor.
  • Buy : If you need more computing cores than your current system.
  • Consider : If you are upgrading from a second-generation Ryzen processor.
  • Skip : If you are already using a 3rd Gen Ryzen processor.

Those on a budget can consider purchasing a Ryzen 7 3700X. It may be slower for sure, but the money you save can be used towards the upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card!

 

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Price + Availability

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor will be available for sale starting 5 November 2020, at these RRP inclusive of tax, in Malaysia :

  • Malaysia : RM 2,049 (~US$493) inclusive of 6% tax
  • United States : RM 449

11th Gen Intel Core (Tiger Lake) : Performance

Intel is targeting their top-of-the-line Tiger Lake processor – the Core i7-1185G7 – against the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U.

We have to point out that this may not be quite a fair comparison since the Ryzen 7 4800U is an 8-core, 16-thread processor with an 8-core Vega GPU and a 15W TDP.

But that’s what Intel is showcasing – a face-off between their Core i7-1185G7 and the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U.

 

Intel Evo : Project Athena Second Edition

Intel is also introducing the Intel Evo platform, as part of the Project Athena Second Edition program.

Based on 11th Gen Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, Intel Evo laptops must meet the Project Athena Second Edition experiences :

  • Consistent responsiveness on battery
  • System wake from sleep in less than 1 second
  • Nine or more hours of real-world battery life on systems with FHD displays
  • Fast charging with up to a four-hour charge in under 30 minutes on systems with FHD displays

To qualify for the Intel Evo platform and branding, laptop designs will have to meet or exceed these minimum specifications :

  • Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) 802.11ax
  • Thunderbolt 4
  • ≥ 256GB PCIe / NVMe SSD
  • ≥ 8GB Dual Channel Memory
  • Bluetooth 5 with Audio Offload
  • > 2 digital microphones of at least 63dB Signal to Noise ratio and +/- 1dB matching
  • High fidelity audio codec / speaker tuning and Intel Smart Sound Technology
  • Speaker Sound Pressure Level >78dB @ 50 cm and bass frequency <353 Hz
  • User-facing camera ≥ HD/720p @ 30fps
  • Voice Assistant with WoV – Cortana Premium Far Field requirements (≥4 m effective)

AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Desktop APUs : All You Need To Know!

AMD just unveiled the Ryzen PRO 4000 Series of desktop APUs, with integrated Radeon Graphics!

Here is what you need to know about the new AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 desktop APUs!

 

AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Desktop APUs with Radeon Graphics

Like the recently released Ryzen PRO 4000 Mobile APUs, the Ryzen 4000 Series come with integrated Radeon Graphics cores. That makes them APUs, instead of pure processors.

While these new desktop APUs are called the 4000 series, they are still part of the 3rd Gen Ryzen processor family, and based on the AMD Zen 2 architecture.

At launch, AMD is introducing six Ryzen PRO 4000 Series desktop processors, three with a 65W TDP :

  • AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G : 8C/16T | up to 4.4 GHz | 12 MB cache | 8 graphics cores
  • AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G : 6C/12T | up to 4.2 GHz | 11 MB cache | 7 graphics cores
  • AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 4350G : 4C/8T | up to 4.0 GHz | 6 MB cache | 6 graphics cores

And three desktop APUs with a 35W TDP :

  • AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750GE : 8C/16T | up to 4.3 GHz | 12 MB cache | 8 graphics cores
  • AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650GE : 6C/12T | up to 4.2 GHz | 11 MB cache | 7 graphics cores
  • AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 4350GE : 4C/8T | up to 4.0 GHz | 6 MB cache | 6 graphics cores

AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Desktop APUs : Performance

AMD shared with us this chart to show how much of a performance advantage the new Ryzen PRO 4000 desktop APUs have over the last generation Ryzen PRO 3400G :

AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G vs Intel Core i7-9700 vPro

In this comparison, the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G offers significant performance advantage over the Intel Core i7-9700 vPro.

Of course, this isn’t really a fair fight, since they are comparing a 8C/16T processor against an 8C/8T processor.

AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4650G vs Intel Core i7-9500 vPro

And the Ryzen 7 PRO 4650G is naturally much faster than the Intel Core i7-9500 vPro.

Again, this is a lopsided comparison of an 6C/12T processor against an 6C/6T processor.

 

AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 Series : Price + Availability

Unfortunately, all six desktop APUs will be limited to the OEM market initially.

AMD does not plan to introduce them to the retail market, until later. So there is no information on their price or retail availability.

AMD expects desktops with these processors to ship from system integrators starting today, 21 July 2020, and from AMD OEM partners like Lenovo and HP starting in Q4 2020.

AMD Ryzen XT : Turbocharged? Not Quite…

The Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 5 3600XT are higher-speed variants existing 3rd Gen Ryzen processors.

These XT variants are slightly different in their performance and the cooler they come with.

While the XT postfix implied these are turbocharged processors, that depends on the model :

  • 3900XT vs 3900X : 100 MHz faster boost clock + $50 higher price tag, no Wraith Prism RGB cooler
  • 3800XT vs 3800X : 200 MHz faster boost clocks, no Wraith Prism RGB cooler.
  • 3600XT vs 3600X : 100 MHz faster boost clock, Wraith Spire instead of Wraith Stealth

Here is the official tech briefing to  take you through its key features :

 

AMD Ryzen XT : Price + Availability

Here are the official prices for the new AMD Ryzen XT processors, which will be available for purchase starting 7 July 2020.

AMD Ryzen XT : Our First Impressions

To be honest, the AMD Ryzen XT processors don’t really excite us that much, and here’s why…

AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT

The Ryzen 9 3900XT has a slightly faster boost clock and loses its bundled cooler. Yet it costs $50 more than the Ryzen 9 3900X.

It would be better to stick with the cheaper Ryzen 9 3900 – you won’t notice the difference. And in case it’s not “fast enough” (seriously?), you can just overclock it.

AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT

This is the second-best Ryzen XT model of the trio, offering a 200 MHz faster boost clock than the Ryzen 7 3800X at the same price point.

You are basically trading the bundled Wraith Prism RGB cooler for a 200 MHz faster boost clock.

Frankly, unless you are planning to use water cooling, it might be a better idea to just buy the Ryzen 7 3800X and overclock using its Wraith Prism RGB cooler.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT

This is really the best Ryzen XT model, offering a slightly faster boost clock with a better Wraith Spire cooler, at the same price as the Ryzen 5 3600X.

That makes the Ryzen 5 3600X completely pointless. We wouldn’t be surprised if AMD drops price on the Ryzen 5 3600X, or removes it from the line-up.

 

AMD Ryzen XT : Free Game Changes Dynamics!

AMD’s surprise announcement that they will bundle a free copy of the upcoming AAA game – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – changed everything.

If you are a gamer planning to buy this game, then it’s a great deal, because the game costs US$59.99 / £49.99 / RM 189.99!

Unfortunately, the Ryzen 5 3600XT does NOT qualify for the free game… 🙁

Fans of the ThinkPad keyboard and TrackPoint will naturally be glad to know they are both part of the ThinkPad E15.

On top of that, it comes with a larger touchpad that now meets the Microsoft Precision TouchPad (PTP) standard.

8th Gen Owl Wing Fan

The AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile APU is kept cool by the 8th Generation Lenovo Owl Wing Fan, which delivers 38% more airflow, for 15% better cooling performance.

On top of that, the Owl Wing Fan is designed to minimise dust accumulation, which means it will maintain its performance over years of use.

Smaller + Lighter

Compared to the last-generation, the 2020 ThinkPad E15 is smaller in size, and lighter in weight. But it still sports the same 15.6-inch display.

The difference is the smaller bezels – just 7.7 mm at the sides, giving it an 85% screen-to-body ratio.

12 MIL-SPEC Certifications

The 2020 ThinkPad E15 may be an entry-level business laptop in Lenovo’s stable, but it is still certified for no less than twelve MIL-SPEC certifications. This ensures that the laptop will keep on running, even if you may not…

AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile : Major Consumer Kick-Off In 2020!

AMD just kicked off a major consumer roll-out of the AMD Ryzen 4000 family of mobile processors!

Join us for AMD’s official consumer tech briefing, and compare the full stack of Ryzen 4000 consumer and PRO mobile processors!

 

AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile : Major Consumer Kick-Off In 2020!

The AMD Ryzen 4000 family of mobile processors was first unveiled at CES 2020, but its major roll-out got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To take on Intel’s considerable control of the laptop market, AMD prepared a formidable stack of 14 mobile processors – all with integrated Vega graphics.

To kick-off their 2020 assault on Intel’s mobile market stronghold, AMD lined up these laptops with their partners :

  • ASUS G14 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA + AMD FreeSync
  • ASUS G15 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA + AMD FreeSync
  • MSI Bravo : Ryzen 4000 H-series + Radeon RX 5500M + AMD FreeSync
  • Lenovo Legion 5 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA
  • Dell G5 15 SE : Ryzen 4000 H-series + Radeon RX 5600M + AMD FreeSync + AMD SmartShift

Recommended : AMD Radeon RX 5700M | RX 5600M : A Quick Primer!

 

AMD SmartShift : A Special Mention!

AMD SmartShift is a new technology that gives the new AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors better performance – up to 10% in games, and 12% in content creation.

It is basically a smart power distribution technique that dynamically improves CPU or GPU performance with a limited power budget.

For more details, we recommend reading AMD SmartShift Explained : Smart Power Distribution FTW!

Unfortunately, it’s not launching in all Ryzen 4000 laptops, only the Dell G5 15 SE at this time. So if you want to take advantage of this new AMD technology, we highly recommend you check out the Dell G5 15 SE.

AMD Ryzen 7 4800H Performance

The AMD Ryzen 7 4800U is targeted directly at the Intel Core i7-9750H, offering :

  • Up to 5% better single-threaded performance
  • Up to 46% better multi-threaded performance
  • Up to 25% faster 4K video encoding on Adobe Premiere
  • Up to 39% faster gameplay physics simulation performance

Thanks to its 2 extra cores and ability to process 4 extra threads, the Ryzen 7 4800H significantly cuts down on the time it takes for content creators to process their work.

Now, its integrated Radeon Vega 7 Graphics is not very fast, which is why AMD did not quote any graphics performance figures. In fact, it has one less core and runs at at a slower speed than the Radeon Vega 8 Graphics in the Ryzen 7 4800U.

Instead, AMD shared with us the PHYSICS test results of the 3DMark Firestrike benchmark. It shows the Ryzen 7 4800H beating not only the Core i7-9750H mobile processor, but also the Core i7-9700K desktop processor! However, it is CPU-only benchmark.

Its gaming performance will definitely be poorer than that of the 15W Ryzen 7 4800U, which means it will likely be paired with a Radeon RX 5500M or RX 5600M, to take advantage of the new AMD SmartShift capability.

 

AMD Ryzen 7 4800H Availability

One of the first laptops to feature the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H is the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14, which claims to be the world’s most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop.

It comes with a 14-inch Pantone-validated display with a Full HD or WQHD resolution, and a 120 Hz refresh rate.

It is less than 18 mm thick and weighs just 1.6 kg. ASUS claims a 10 hour battery life, not while gaming though but playing videos.

The Zephyrus G14 and the first slew of laptops to feature the Ryzen 7 4800H will debut in Q1 2020. We will update this article once we know more.

Tech ARP Eco-Mode Guide 3.0 for 3rd Gen Ryzen Processors!

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the new Ryzen Eco-Mode for 3rd Gen Ryzen processors!

Find out when, how and why you should enable or disable the Ryzen Eco-Mode!

Updated @ 2019-11-17 : Added a guide on enabling PBO in the BIOS, and updated the article in general.

Updated @ 2019-11-09 : Added Robert Hallock’s video on Ryzen Eco-Mode, and a compatibility list.

Originally posted @ 2019-11-07

 

The New 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Eco-Mode

AMD Ryzen Master 2.0 comes with a new Eco-Mode for 3rd Gen Ryzen processors, but NOT the Ryzen 3000-series APUs.

AMD Senior Technical Marketing Manager, Robert Hallock, gives us a quick primer in this video.

What Eco-Mode does is lower the 3rd Gen Ryzen processor’s TDP by one step :

  • 105 W and 95 W processors will be limited to 65 W
  • 65 W processors will be limited to 45 W

The 3rd Gen Ryzen processor will manage core voltage and frequency automatically to keep to the new reduced power level.

Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO), Automatic Overclocking (AOC) and manual overclocking will be disabled when Eco-Mode is enabled.

 

Impact Of Ryzen Eco-Mode

Enabling Eco-Mode naturally impacts the processor’s performance, but greatly reduces its power consumption with a significant drop in CPU temperature.

AMD shared this chart with us, comparing the performance of the new Ryzen 9 3950X, with and without Eco-Mode turned on.

With a 38% lower TDP, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X used 44% less power and ran 7°C cooler. On the downside, it was 23% slower.

However, it offers those on a limited TDP budget the option of using a CPU with more cores than would normally be possible.

 

Ryzen Eco-Mode Use Case

According to AMD Desktop Processor Technical Marketing Manager, Don Woligroski, Eco-Mode is best used by those who want to run high-end 3rd Gen Ryzen processors in Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs, NAS, Plex boxes, etc.

It will allow them to enjoy the performance of 12 or 16 cores, without worrying about overloading the SFF power supply, or excessive heat accumulating in the small chassis.

It can also be used to trade off Ryzen processor power for more graphics card power, if there is limited power at the system level.

Since it can be applied on-the-fly, you can also use it to greatly reduce power consumption and thermal output when you are not using your high-performance Ryzen system for strenuous work.

And when you need processing power, you can instantly turn it into a high-performance gaming or content creation system with a simple switch!

 

How To Enable / Disable Ryzen Eco-Mode

Ryzen Eco-Mode will NOT appear until PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) is enabled in the BIOS, so before you begin, check and make sure PBO has been enabled in the BIOS.

  1. Download and install AMD Ryzen Master 2.0, or newer.
  2. Select one of the four profiles to edit and use.
  3. Under Control Mode, select ECO-Mode.

  1. Click the Apply button at the bottom to activate Eco-Mode immediately.
  2. The processor will immediately manage its core voltages and frequencies to achieve the lower power target.
  3. To disable Eco-Mode, just select one of the four other control modes – Default, Precision Boost Overdrive, Auto Overclocking or Manual.

  1. Click the Apply button to disable Eco-Mode, and activate the selected control mode.

 

There Is No Eco-Mode Option In Ryzen Master!

If you do not see the Eco-Mode option in Ryzen Master, that’s because PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) is disabled in the BIOS.

  1. Reboot your computer, and go into BIOS setup
  2. Look for the PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) option, which may be hidden under overclocking options
  3. It will generally be set to Auto by default.
  4. Switch that to Enabled.
  5. Save the change, and reboot your computer.

After doing this, Eco-Mode will appear in Ryzen Master.
