AMD Ryzen 5 8500G ‘Hawk Point’ Benchmark Scores Leaks

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is set to launch the new Ryzen 8000 processors this year, with expectations that the G-Series APUs will be the initial offerings. In the upcoming Ryzen 8000G lineup, codenamed Hawk Point, the Ryzen 5 8500G is poised to be AMD’s enticing entry-level option, providing gamers with high-performance integrated graphics. This upcoming Ryzen 5 8500G APU promises an exciting addition to the array of processor choices.

The benchmark leak was initially spotted by the Twitter user @Olrak29. The Ryzen 5 8500G underwent testing in Geekbench 5, revealing its synthetic CPU performance results, a score of 1965 points in Single-Core and 8768 points in Multi-Core. Additionally, detailed specifications for AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 5 8500G processor have been disclosed.

The Geekbench result provides CPU information for the Ryzen 5 8500G, indicating a core configuration of 6 cores and 12 threads. The maximum CPU frequency is reported as 4999MHz, suggesting a boost clock speed of 5.0GHz.

The base clock is specified as 3.55 GHz, and the processor was tested with 32GB of memory on a Maxsun B650M motherboard. The new Ryzen 8000G processors will be supported by AMD’s AM5 motherboards (A620, B650, X670). As an APU, AMD’s Ryzen 5 8500G is poised to be highly attractive to gamers seeking a cost-effective solution.

The Ryzen 5 8500G is expected to feature high-performance Radeon 740M integrated graphics. Coupled with sufficient RAM and fast speeds, the integrated Radeon 740M graphics in the Ryzen 5 8500G are anticipated to deliver solid performance. This makes the APU suitable for PC builds that don’t necessitate a dedicated GPU, a trend often seen with AMD Ryzen APUs. The launch of the AMD Ryzen 8000 series, including the G-Series APUs, is eagerly awaited for entry-level gaming setups.
