AMD Ryzen 7 8700G iGPU 27% Faster than NVIDIA’s GTX 1650, Beats the RX 6400

AMD’s Ryzen 8000 processors are the first to truly replace entry-level discrete GPUs such as the GTX 1650 and the Radeon RX 6400. Tests conducted by Fast Technology show that when paired with DDR5-8000 memory, the Ryzen 7 8700G not only beats the GeForce GTX 1650 4GB but does so with an average lead of 27%. Using a pair of 16GB memory modules clocked at 8000MT/s, the integrated Radeon 780M GPU on the 8700G routs the RX 6400, GTX 1650, and GTX 1050 Ti 4G paired with a Core i9-14900K.

Upgrading from a pair of 6400MT/s modules grants a 7% performance uplift in gaming performance, beating the GTX 1650 by up to 59%. Games that run well on the Ryzen 7 8700G without a dGPU include Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Far Cry 6, PUBG, Cyberpunk 2077, and Borderlands 3. The Radeon 780M beats its discrete GPU rivals by over 30% in these titles.

The Ryzen 5 8600G isn’t that far behind. The Radeon 760M graphics processor is 20% slower than the 780M (8700G) but is as fast as the GTX 1650. It falls behind the RX 6400 which is 5-10% faster on average. The 760M and 780M are based on the RDNA 3 graphics architecture. The Radeon 780M features 12 Compute Units (768 shaders), including 12 Ray Accelerator Units and 2MB of L2 cache. The 760M is limited to 8 Compute Units (512 shaders) with the same 2MB of shared L2 cache.
