AMD Radeon Graphics of Ryzen 7 4700U Processor

The AMD Ryzen 4000 U series processors for mainstream laptops feature the AMD Radeon integrated graphics. The Radeon in the Ryzen 7 4700U features seven graphics processing cores, as opposed to five and six of the Ryzen 3 4300U and 5 4500U. This and a bit higher clock speed makes the Radeon of the Ryzen 7 somewhat faster than the same GPU in the Ryzen 3 and 5. But, they are all just entry level graphics solutions. They enable playing of lighter PC games, but they aren’t enough powerful like the gaming-class video cards to handle the latest hardware-demanding titles. On the positive side, the Radeon of the 7 4700U is faster than many of the popular integrated graphics processors, such as the Intel UHD of the popular Intel Core U processor series or Radeon Vega graphics of the older-gen Ryzen chips.

Note: The same 7-core Radeon is used in the similar but less known Ryzen 7 4800U laptop processor.

Benchmark of AMD Radeon Graphics of Ryzen 7 4700U

Here’s a benchmark chart featuring the AMD Radeon and other popular laptop graphics processors.

AMD Radeon Graphics (Ryzen 7 4700U) Benchmark

As you can see, the benchmarks confirm the Ryzen 7 4700U’s Radeon version belongs to the lower-end of the laptop GPU spectrum. On the positive side, the benchmarks show its faster than many other GPUs and that it can compete against entry-level dedicated video cards like the Nvidia GeForce MX series.

You can take a look at gameplay videos of the Ryzen 7 4700U AMD Radeon graphics in the Reviews, Q&A, and Videos section below.

Note: Performance and benchmark scores of the AMD Radeon Graphics of Ryzen 7 4700U may vary depending on factors such as the notebook's other components (especially single-channel vs faster dual-channel RAM and speed of the main processor). However, benchmark results and gameplay videos are good indicators of its performance.

  1. Question

    Andy

    I’m not tech enough but I am a warcrafter and need to upgrade for the next patch and the requirements are as follows, my question is, will this do what I need?
    OS: Windows 7 64-bit.
    CPU: Intel Core i5-3450 or AMD FX 8300.
    GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760, AMD Radeon RX 560, or Intel UHD 630 (45W) (DirectX 11 compatible GPU with 2GB VRAM)
    RAM: 4GB (8GB if using integrated graphics)
    Storage: SSD, 100GB available space.

      I just looked up the Nvidia card you listed. It’s a $300+ card. It’s hard to compare discrete to integrated graphics. From what you’ve written above, you NEED a discrete GPU. Might as week get RX 560. The GPU on this chip WILL run WoW, but low textures and draw distance for sure and I don’t see getting a frame rate. Good luck!

  3. Question

    Merrick

    Hi, can I use this for video editing on Sony Vegas Pro?
    Laptop RAM is 8GB. If I upgrade the RAM to 20GB will it make a difference to allow video editing/rendering?
    1080p videos usually

      Hi, I haven’t tried it, but I assume you can, since it is a modern upper-mid range processor and you don’t do videos above 1080p. The Ryzen 7 4700U and other processors in the category are generally good for video editing, although they are not as powerful as high-performance CPUs such as the Ryzen 7 4800H or 10th Gen Intel Core H-series you can typically find in gaming laptops.

      I’m however not sure whether you’ll be able to use GPU acceleration that can help with some operations within the Vegas Pro, if your laptop relies only on the Ryzen’s Radeon integrated graphics without its own video memory. Vegas specs says it requires “AMD Radeon with 4GB and VCE 3.0 or higher (Radeon Pro series with 8GB for HDR and 32 bit projects)”.

      Since the Ryzen’s Radeon graphics doesn’t have its own video memory and uses the laptop’s RAM, using Vegas on only 8GB can be troublesome, so I can recommend 16GB or higher (and that’s their official RAM size recommendation, too, 8GB is the minimum).

      I see, thanks! The 4GB is soldered to Lenovo SLIM3, so the highest dual channel is 8 (4+4). Would you recommend a single channel 16GB instead or does AMD Ryzen support different memory per stick?

    • Dan

      I always recommend dual-channel over single-channel RAM, especially if you use the processors integrated graphics which doesn’t have its own video memory. The integrated graphics speed is much better with dual channel RAM.

      Specs of the Slim 3 says maximal supported RAM is 12GB. That’s an 8GB module added besides the built-in 4GB. So you can have at least 12GB. Usually, even larger 16GB modules work on newer laptop models. I assume you can also have 4GB + 16GB, but I’m not sure. Anyway, different RAM sizes generally do work together, like 4GB + 8GB.

    • Dan

      Hi, 512MB means the Vega graphics processor uses 512MB of main system memory (RAM) for graphics rendering. On many laptop models you can configure that maximal VRAM size (portion of main RAM) in the notebook’s BIOS settings. As for the difference between Vega in the Ryzen 7 4700U and 3700U, they aren’t very big, generally. The difference depends a lot on whether you have single or dual channel RAM and on the power configuration of the Ryzen processor, for instance 18 Watts vs 25 Watts. You can take a look at this YT comparison video, but keep in mind that in this case the 4700U is 18W, while the 3700U is 25W.

    • Dan

      You cannot upgrade video memory, because the Radeon graphics of Ryzen 7 uses a portion of the main RAM of the laptop. But, depending on the laptop model, you can upgrade the main RAM if you don’t have enough of it, so the Radeon graphics can utilize more RAM. Or change settings in the notebook’s BIOS to enable greater RAM usage for graphics (if available).
