Enthusiasts, known under the nickname SkatterBencher, set out to identify the Radeon 780M – the graphics core, integrated into the processor Ryzen 7 8700G. As a result of increasing the frequency of the memory DDR5-6400 to 8000 MHz it was possible to increase the frequency of the GPU to the peak 3,15 GHz (and 3086 MHz constant frequency). After this the enthusiast tested the graphics in Geekbench 6, 3DMark and games. The average performance improvement was 37% – and that’s a lot for an iGPU.
But there is a reverse side of the coin, which shows that such a race is completely devoid of meaning. It was shown that increasing the frequency is accompanied by a sharp increase in the power consumed. So, when manual boost up to 3,1 GHz the power «shoots» up to 156 W! That is, consumption APU even exceeds consumption GeForce RTX 4060. Increasing the consumed power by three times while increasing performance by 37% and makes racing Radeon 780M absolutely meaningless.
