AMD Ryzen 7 8700G built-in GPU overclocked to 3.3GHz, 25C reduction in temps with liquid metal


AMD’s just-launched Ryzen 7 8700G “Hawk Point” APU has fallen into the hands of overclockers across the world, with professional overclockers pushing the integrated GPU inside of the Hawk Point APU up to a blistering 3300MHz (3.3GHz).

The integrated Radeon 780M GPU inside of the Hawk Point APU was pushed to 3300MHz, with the SoC temperature (the whole chip, it’s an APU, so there’s a CPU, GPU, and NPU for AI tasks) running at just 44C and consuming 82W of power through heavy benchmarking.

The GPU maxed out at 47C under these loads at 3300MHz GPU clock, averaging 36C while the CPU core maxed out at 81.8C, averaging 40C under load.

Overclocker “SkatterBencher” had the Radeon 780M graphics clocked at 3.3GHz, running a 3DMark Speed Test but needed 1.25V of voltage being pumped into the chip to get there. There aren’t any OC results at 3.3GHz, but the overclocker did show off scores for 3.15GHz, which is 22% faster on average. But, in an AI benchmark, the overclocked APU was close to 40% faster than stock speeds… very interesting to see.

On the other side of things, we’ve got Roman “der8auer” Hartung, who removed the heatsink from AMD’s fresh new Ryzen 7 8700G “Hawk Point” APU, which was an easy process because unlike Ryzen 7000 series CPUs, the APUs aren’t using solder, just regular thermal compound.

The overclocking legend used Thermal Grizzly KryoSheet and then liquid metal after that, while the Ryzen 7 8700G was overclocked to 5.0GHz across all cores.

We can see a huge difference in temperatures of the 8700G APU, with stock temperatures at 85C, The Thermal Grizzly OC KryoSheet with 70C, and then down into just 60C with liquid metal. Impressive results.
