AMD Ryzen 3 5300G pleases with its overclocking potential and performance

AMD only recently announced that the Ryzen 5000G APUs will be retailing, and the first tests of the younger representative of the line, the Ryzen 3 5300G, have already appeared. A South Korean enthusiast known as Safedisk tested the overclocking potential of this inexpensive quad-core APU, and it turned out to be quite decent for a model that costs about $ 120: in the hands of an overclocker, the Ryzen 3 5300G ran at 5.5 GHz with all active cores.

A non-standard liquid nitrogen-based cooling system was used in the experiment. The overclocking result was very good, but more importantly, the Ryzen 3 5300G demonstrated excellent performance. So, running at 5.4 GHz Ryzen 3 5300G completed the Y-Cruncher test in 53.681 seconds - faster than the previous four-core record holder Core i7-7740X, operating at 6.4 GHz. The APU also performed well in the Geekbench test, scoring 32,200 points in the multi-threaded test. Finally, the GPUPI test, being overclocked to 5.52 GHz, was completed in 2 minutes and 2.651 s - more than a minute faster than the Core i7-7740X, operating at a frequency above 7 GHz.

For overclocking, Safedisk used an Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme motherboard and 16 GB G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-2066 MHz (CL14-14-28-1T) memory. Interestingly, 5.5 GHz is not the limit for overclocking the Ryzen 3 5300G: other enthusiasts have an APU running at 5.6 GHz.
