AMD Ryzen 3 4200G & Ryzen 5 4400G 'Renoir' Desktop APU Performance Benchmarks
In terms of performance, AMD Ryzen 3 4200G was benchmarked in 3DMark 11 and scored 6825 points in the Physics and 3489 points in the graphics benchmark. The graphics side performance puts the chip ahead of the Ice Lake GT1 graphics chip with 32 EUs and on par with a low-voltage tuned MX250 GPU. The Vega 8 GPU found on the Ryzen 7 4700U scores over 5000 points but that's solely due to the chip has more cores (384 vs 448). The CPU score is also lower than the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X which scores around 10,000 points but comes close to the Ryzen 3 3100.
Moving over to the Ryzen 5 4400G, we have a physics score of 19,113 and a graphics score of 4033 in the 3DMark Firestrike benchmark. Here, the Ryzen 5 4400G is almost on par with the 8 core AMD Ryzen 7 2700X while blazing past the Ryzen 5 3600 (non-X). The graphics score is much better than the Ryzen 7 4800H which is due to the higher clock speeds of 1900 MHz on the desktop SKU versus 1600 MHz on the laptop SKU. A Ryzen 7 4800H scores around 3500 points in the graphics bench.
The latest benchmarks show that the AMD Ryzen 3 4200G is up to 58% faster than the Ryzen 3 2200G in the Firestrike CPU test while the graphics chip is faster than the Vega 8 GPU featured on the stock clocked (1250 MHz) graphics chip but lacks against an overclocked version clocking up to 1800 MHz. It seems like overclocking the Vega 6 GPU on the Ryzen 3 4200G will dramatically help improved performance over its predecessors.

The AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4700G delivers similar results with about 90% improvement in the CPU test thanks to twice the number of cores and threads over the Ryzen 5 3400G. The Vega 8 GPU running at 2100 MHz is just matched by the Vega 11 GPU on the Ryzen 5 3400G with a clock speed of 1700 MHz. Again, there's no doubt that an overclocked Vega GPU on Renoir APUs will outperform the old Picasso parts. The CPU is also compared to the Ryzen 9 4900HS and ends up being 5% faster in the graphics benchmark and 10% faster in the CPU benchmark.
Overall, the numbers look pretty decent for these entry-level chips making them a suitable option for budget gamers who want a good combination of CPU and GPU performance for eSports titles. You're essentially getting a Ryzen 3 3300X / Ryzen 3 3100 with a much better graphics chip than the competition so in the future, you don't have to upgrade the CPU itself to avoid any bottlenecks in the future when you do get a discrete graphics card.
The higher-end 8 core and Vega 8 options will also be great performers when coupled with B550 or older 400 series motherboards but it looks like they would cost a bit extra around $200 US. Our sources have also reported that we can expect launch for Ryzen 4000 APUs around July this year. The processors will be fully compatible with budget platforms such as the B550 and A520.
