iGPU Ryzen 7 5700G: cheaper, faster and more economical than Core i5-11400 and GT 1030

We took a brief look at how the Ryzen 7 5700G is doing when it was released. However, Tom’sHardware has now prepared more detailed tests that compare with a higher number of possible alternatives. It is especially interesting to compare the game performance of integrated graphics not only compared to other processors with integrated graphics, but also compared to processors with separate graphics.

Unless otherwise noted, Ryzens 5000G were tested with DDR4-3200 memories. Intel processors with DDR4-3600. The prices shown in the graph are MSRP, ie the recommended official prices. Real prices sometimes vary, even quite substantially, but we’ll get to that. In the factory setting with these parameters, the Ryzen 7 5700G averages 45.2 FPS in 1080p game tests, which is about twice the performance of the Core 11000 (Rocket Lake). If PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) and DDR4-4000 memory are used, graphics performance will increase by another 17%. If only one module is used (single-channel mounting), the power drops to the Core 11000 level in a two-channel connection.

It is worth noting the combination of Core i5-11400 and GeForce GT 1030. So 65W Intel processor with separate graphics from Nvidia, which with regard to 30W TDP is probably the only way to increase the performance of Core processors (still such GeForce GTX 1650 reaches 2.5 times higher TDP). However, even a solution with separate graphics remains 14% slower than the Ryzen 7 5700G with basic DDR4-3200.

How do these two configurations fare? Instead of the recommended prices, I filtered the prices of these products on NewEgg:

As for the Core i5-11400, the situation is a bit complicated. New doesn’t have NewEgg in stock, they are used for $ 269. But NewEgg is offering new delivery from a 3C Expert retailer for $ 259. You can’t save on the version without graphics (Core i5-11400F) – it is in stock, but for a higher price ($ 285). So let’s count on $ 259.

Tom’sHardware quotes the GeForce GT 1030 at $ 180, but you can also get a cheaper model from Yeston for $ 159. NewEgg offers even cheaper cards (up to around $ 100), but these are already 2GB models that are unusable from a gaming point of view, because for many games tested on Ryzen, 2GB graphics are simply not enough. The Core i5-11400 with GeForce GT 1030 4GB is based on $ 418, while Ryzen costs $ 359 (it’s $ 59 cheaper). Unfortunately, a comparison of koruna prices is not possible, because I could not find any domestic e-shop that would still have a 4GB version of the GeForce GT 1030 in stock (and other 4GB graphics cards cost about six thousand).

How’s the consumption? In the stress test, the Ryzen 7 5700G consumes 71 watts, the Core i5-11400 106 watts (both are products with 65W TDP). When we add 30W TDP GeForce GT 1030 4GB to the value of the Core i5-11400, we get twice the consumption of Ryzen.

If we focus purely on graphics, then the Ryzen 5 5600G, which is even $ 100 cheaper and ~ 14 watts more economical, can be considered without a significant drop in performance. If we are also interested in processor performance, or energy efficiency when using the processor part, then we can get some idea from the test in Handbrake focused on the number of renders per hour still converted to watts (more is better):

The Core 11000 (Rocket Lake) even worse than the cheapest Core 1000 (Comet Lake-refresh) and even below the level of the aged Ryzen 5 3400G from 12nm GlobalFoundries lines. Specifically, the Core i5-11400 then achieves 2x lower power per unit time and watt.

This test concept, which takes into account not only performance but also consumption, shows that energy efficiency Rocket Lake is extremely weak and the lower beat strategy set by Intel (Comet Lake had up to 10 cores, Rocket Lake maximum 8) does not work at 14nm process. Respectively, it only works until consumption is taken into account. For this generation, Intel is no longer worse in the order of tens of percent, but in multiples. Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G as energy-efficient products with powerful integrated graphics remain without direct competition.

Despite the November issue Alder Lake will probably not change much in this segment for the rest of the year, as 65W Alder Lake is probably not ready until the beginning of 2022, and although it will surpass the current generation of APU processor performance, it will again be at the expense of actual consumption and apparently again with much weaker integrated graphics. Intel is working with this in the mobile segment (Ice Lake, Rocket Lake), but the desktop is transmitted to AMD on a silver platter.
