Leaked AMD Ryzen APU Benchmarks are Faked?

Photos of AMD Ryzen APUs with Vega Graphics Leak Out

If you’re keen on AMD‘s upcoming APU range, then you’re not alone. The new chips feature a combination of Ryzen CPU cores and Vega GPU cores. That’s a winning scenario, at least you would think so. With such a hot launch, leaks are bound to happen, but should you believe them?

Do You Believe in Rumours?

Most people don’t believe in rumours, yet they’re quick to spread them. That is no different when it comes to our beloved world of technology. AMD has another hot launch coming and that is bound to draw a lot of both leaks and rumours. Recently, a couple technology outlets have started to leak out benchmarks. It might be tempting for reviewers to do that for multiple reasons, but it isn’t ethical. At least not in our opinion.

We are bound by our NDA agreement with AMD at this point, so we have to be careful what we say until the new APUs officially launch. There are a lot of official details released at this point and outlets are allowed to preview certain things. Benchmarks are not among those allowed at this time. Long story short, I can’t tell you how well they perform. I can’t tell whether they’re worse or better either. But I can tell you that the leaks out there right now are false.

Should You Wait to Draw Your Conclusions?

Yes, you definitely should. Proper technology outlets such as us here at eTeknix, but also many others, will have a lot of reviews ready for the official AMD Ryzen and Vega APU launch. Chips, motherboards, and system, you’ll find it all in details here.

Not only will you be sure that the figures you’re presented with are correct, they are also comparable with other products. Drivers have been finalized and operating systems tuned to work with the available features of the new parts. A simple thing, such as a proper driver support, can already skew your benchmark results to a point where they’re useless.

Will you be Buying one of the new Processors?

Are you planning to buy one of AMD’s upcoming APUs? Either the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G or the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G? Or aren’t you tempted by such a solution? Let us know in the comments!

    There’s definitely a 2200G in my future. I’ll be waiting for reviews, but I don’t expect the results to deviate a lot from my expectations (which are largely based on the AMD slides). My needs are minimal, so I don’t think I’ll be disappointed.

  2. ET3D says:

    By the way, AMD slides showed Fire Strike results for the 2400G of 2911 (2400 RAM) to 4048 (massive GPU overclock, 3600 RAM). So that’s one point of reference. Time Spy was said to be comparable to a GT 1030, and while results in the database vary a lot, I’d imagine that’s in the 1300-1400 range. However there were no details about RAM speed in that slide, so with overclock and fast RAM, it might not be completely out of the question to get 1882.

    Anyway, as you can see, I, like others, am somewhat impatiently waiting for real data. What time of the day does the NDA expire?

    No crossfire support ? That has to be the biggest disappointment, and therefore cannot invest in a system that is not future proof, not can one improve on graphics.

    • Cooe says:

      Hybrid crossfire always worked TERRIBLE, and in many cases ran slower then merely using the dGPU alone. It’d be impossible to do with this APU anyways, as there’s no comparable 704 SP Vega dGPU part. Not to mention that multi-GPU gaming in general is going the way of the dodo, and when the 4 Zen cores this is packing is MORE than enough to push any dGPU on the market, just fine. What makes you think you couldn’t upgrade the graphics in a system with one of these? I really don’t think you understand all this tech anywhere near as much as you might think.
