AMD Ryzen 3 5300G APU is not released for the DIY segment till now but it couldn’t stop it from breaking some records. A renowned overclocker Safedisk, from South Korea, has overclocked Ryzen 3 5300G APU to 5.52 GHz and setting a New World Record for Multiple Quad-Core CPUs.
Along with AMD Ryzen 3 5300G APU the rig used for overclocking equipped the latest ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme motherboard, and 16 GB of G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-2066 (CL14-14-14-28-1T) memory achieving a maximum of 5.52 GHz of overclocking speed. This is not the fastest frequency achieved on the Ryzen 5000G APUs but it’s surely the fastest clock speed used for benchmarking, reports Wccftech.
Now coming to the benchmarks, in Y-Cruncher, AMD Ryzen 3 5300G APU achieved a score of 53 sec & 681ms which is faster compared to Core i7-7740X. In Geekbench, the Ryzen 3 5300G achieves a score of 32200 points which is approx 2% faster than the previous record. And in GPUPU 1B, the APU posted a score of 2min, 2sec, 651 ms at 5.52 GHz.
We have previously witnessed the 5.6 GHz overclocking speed using LN2 cooling for the same APU but these benchmarks speak for themselves that this tiny APU is quite powerful. Ryzen 3 5300G is a quad-core APU with lots of overclocking potential and is priced around $110-$130 US. With Vega GPU it could be the perfect budget solution for a rig.
