Two new AMD CPUs with gaming capable IGP
There are two new processors of the Ryzen 5000 family from AMD. In contrast to the three 5000 models that have been available for a long time, both have an IGP (internal graphics unit). Our Colleagues from PC Games Hardware tested the more expensive of the two new models, the Ryzen 7 5700G. The benchmarks with a dedicated graphics card (an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090) are not good if you consider the price of 370 euros. Because the Ryzen 5 5600X without IGP – currently a clear buying tip for a gaming PC – does much better here and costs 100 euros less. the IGP performance tests show, however, that gaming with the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G is very possible in 720p: The four games Control, Greedfall, Metro Exodus and The Witcher 3 run with 50 FPS or more, so you can expect playability in Full HD – only Cyberpunk 2077 weakens at 720p with only 36 FPS a bit, but remains playable.
When testing ComputerBase, in which the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G (270 Euro) occurs, it also shows that the Vega-IGP can perform quite well: Fortnite, Rainbow Six Siege and Lego Builder’s Journey run with the smaller new Ryzen processor with more than 60 FPS, Valorant with over 130 FPS. In F1 2021 50 FPS are possible, in Resident Evil Village just under 40. The Ryzen 7 5700G brings a few more FPS each. But since, as already mentioned, even the Ryzen 7 5700G is inferior to the € 100 cheaper Ryzen 5 5600X when using a real graphics card, both new CPUs with Vega-IGP are clearly aimed at casual gamers who are currently facing the current market situation (see our current graphics card special) do not want to or cannot buy a graphics card. Even the weak Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, which we didn’t recommend buying long before the graphics card crisis began, currently still costs at least 230 euros, the GTX 1660 over 350 euros and the GTX 1660 Super from 400 euros – seen in this way The two new AMD CPUs are a good choice for an entry-level PC, which of course can still be retrofitted with a dedicated graphics card later.
