Depends on which "old chip" you are referring to.
In my case I replaced the 2400G with 4750G.
In their default configuration (65W) They are mostly identical in thermals and power consumption.
I ran them in a room with AC (~22C), they topped out around 85C.
However the 4750G supports TDP configuration.
Now I run the 4750G in its 35W configuration.
In this setting the power consumption is halved (42W vs 88W) , max temp only 57C ,
Only 16% multi-core performance lost.
And single core performance is unaffected.
I am running my 4750G in the 35W configuration forever. ?
Notebookcheck has some pretty extreme variations in quality of reporting. I put in a comment to inform them that this isn't quite news with a link here, we'll see if they update anything.From the link.
"This allows A300 users to add the more powerful Ryzen Pro APUs."
This feature is already available I have a 4650g in my A300.
"but the A300-STX motherboards still cannot offer overclocking features for the processors and RAM"
While true for CPU/GPU you can overclock RAM. I have my RAM overclocked to 3400 C16.
Very poor article.
That is really cool! Any chance you could shed some light on how the TDP change affects iGPU performance? Even something as simple as comparative 3DMark runs would be great to see
I bought something similar from aliexpress and had some problems.
... and you aren't willing to shut all of that down, reconfigure the PC, and then reverse the process just to answer a question from someone on the internet? I am shocked. Shocked, I tell you!I am sry it is not quite feasible since my A300 is currently running ESXi in the office and has a few VMs running 24/7.
i donät know how should this work . can't flash it on standard way
habe an way to flash it its awesomestill it's done. translate thread to english and you can see that 4750g boots in a300 with bios x300 1.40, but no settings can be saved. so the author switches back to 3.60S after benchmarking it at full default settings (cpu-z = 541/5854(!), which is awesome compared to my 522/4296 score with 4650g and 3.60S). on 3.60S 4750g boots at ddr4 4000 mhz and 3800 mhz, but system hangs and only stable at 3600 mhz.
no clue about flashing it, see comment section for further details:
(note: they are recommending x300 bios for picasso, saying it's bugged with renoir)
