Most Powerful iGPU Ever! Faster Than A GTX 1050, Say Bye To Your dGPU! Hands-On AAA Test

Last Updated on December 9, 2022 by Detective Dev

Just seeing cyberpunk 2077 run this well On an igpu is absolutely amazing I mean I'm kind of Blown Away here with that Faster ddr5 Ram this has definitely Turned out to be the most powerful igpu We've ever seen What's going on everybody it's ETA Prime Back here again today we're going to be Taking this ryzen 6000 powered mini PC To the next level by adding faster Ram Here now if you watch the channel you've Probably seen this a couple times this Has really turned out to be one of my Favorite PCS of 2022 it's the Menace Forum um 690 this is powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 6900 Ajax and as you might know With these newer 6000 series apus we've Got our dna2 based graphics and usually There's not a lot we can do to kind of Up the performance of integrated Graphics but with these new 6000 series Chips faster Ram is really going to help Out and this does support ddr5 out of The box the um 690 is going to be coming With 4 800 megahertz Ram but in this Video we're going to add 6 000 megahertz Ddr5 to this and unlock a lot of Performance but before we get into it I Do want to mention that this video is Brought to you by urcd Keys I've Actually been using this site for a Couple years now they do offer steam Keys origin you played they even off for Microsoft applications like office but

The main reason that I use urcd Keys is For their Windows keys right now their Windows 10 Pro OEM key is 19.84 cents But if you use code ETA at checkout you Can get 25 off and another great thing About buying from here is they do accept Paypal I just did this build here I need To activate Windows I'm going to head Over to my updates and security we're Going to go to activation As you can see I've got Windows 10 Pro But it's not activated so I'm going to Change product key I'm going to paste it in here choose Next choose activate and windows is now Activated we're ready to go my warning Is totally gone and basically that's it They'll email your code once your Payment is processed and that's Basically it if you're interested in Picking up cheap Windows 10 keys for Your new pc builds I'll leave a link in The description Okay so the first thing we need to do is Get that new Ram inside of the um 690 It's actually pretty easy to pull the Bottom off there's just four screws and I do want to mention that Menace Forum Doesn't condone or recommend Overclocking the ram that comes in this Now from the BIOS we've got that setting To take the ram up so what I've done is Just picked up some faster Ram it's Actually ddr5 5600 megahertz but with a

Little bit of tweaking I was actually Able to get this up to 6000 megahertz Very stably in the um 690 if you pick One of these up that comes pre-loaded With ram from minus Forum you're gonna Get Kingston Ram but what I've got here Is some team group Elite ddr5 this is Their 5600 megahertz version and they Only sell this in 16 gigabyte sticks so I did have to buy two 16 sticks here Bringing it up to a total of 32 gigs of Ram in this Mini PC but at the time I'm Making this video this is the fastest Sodium ddr5 that I could actually find On the market I know High Nix has some 6400 megahertz coming down the line but Nobody is selling it just yet yet at Least to the public so I've got the RAM Installed but now I need to do a little Bit of tweaking from the BIOS and I'm Also going to show you a few other Settings that I use from the BIOS and in Windows just to get better performance Out of this PC as soon as you boot the Um 690 up just press delete on the Keyboard a few times it'll bring us Right into the BIOS it's going to state That this Ram is running at 4 800 Megahertz because we haven't adjusted it Yet so from the BIOS I'm going to go to Advanced SMC common options and from Here we've got a few settings that we Can change like the TDP and the ram Speed plus we can adjust the fan curve

If we want to and as you can see it's Set at 4 800 megahertz we can take it Right to 5600 megahertz given the ram Speed that I'm using now but I've done Some testing and I've actually been able To take this team group Elite Ram up to 6000 megahertz in this PC so for the Memory Target speed I'm going to go to 6000 and if everything worked out Correctly and the ram can handle it it Will be at 6000 megahertz now when it Comes to the system configuration this Is going to actually change the total TDP of the CPU we've got a setting here For 65 Watts but it actually defaults Back to 30 but I always set this to 54 Watts and with this we've actually got a Boost up to 65 Watts which will help out For a little bit but it'll come right Back down to around 54 to 55 Watts Alright so here it is I'm running Windows 11 Pro give you a quick look at The configuration here as you can see We've got that ryzen 9 5900 HX 8 cores 16 threads and this is an amazing Apu I Mean those higher wattages really help Out with this moving down to Ram as you Can see we've got 32 gigabytes of ddr5 Running at 6000 megahertz and the reason This is going to help out with our Integrated graphics performance is Because these igpus use system memory or Ram as vram when it comes to a dedicated GPU it's got its own vram built in

You'll see something like the RTX 3060 Listed with 12 gigabytes of gddr6 now That's a lot faster than our ddr5 but We're running this at 6000 which in turn Is a lot faster than ddr4 or even the Stock configuration of this Mini PC Running at 4 800 megahertz so I've got Everything set up in Windows and the BIOS now it's time to see how this thing Performs And first up we've got Forza Horizon 5 1080p medium settings we're getting an Average of 91 FPS out of integrated Graphics with this game at 1080p this Isn't the hardest one to run I mean it's A very well optimized game and you know If you did want to do 120 FPS with this You could go down to 900p medium Settings and lock it right there it'll Run it all day the next thing I wanted To do was just run a few benchmarks and Give a comparison between the 4 800 Megahertz RAM and the 6000 megahertz Ram That we're running right now First one here is 3dmark night raid with That 6000 megahertz ddr5 we got a 29 477 And with 4 800 megahertz Ram 25 757. so yeah we're definitely seeing a Little bump here next up we've got fire Strike on 6000 megahertz Ram 7450 and on 4 800 megahertz we got a 6566 and with time spy we finally broke The 3000 mark on integrated Graphics we Actually got a

3142 and on 4 800 megahertz Ram 2852. I was actually really surprised that we Were able to break that 3000 Mark I mean A little over here and I've been trying To do this for a while so adding this Ram to the 6900 Ajax definitely helps Out with GPU performance but these are Synthetic benchmarks let's see how this Thing can really game Spider-Man Miles Morales I was actually Really impressed with the performance Here uh given that this is a newer AAA Game I've done a lot of testing with you Know the new Spider-Man remastered and This on all kinds of integrated Graphics This is the best performance that I've Seen so far even when you compare it to Like the 6800u with that faster 6400 Megahertz Ram Here's cyberpunk 2077 low 720p and we're Getting an average of 87 FPS out of this Game uh you know if you've tried to run This on even a dedicated GPU you know How hard it can be to run and of course We're at low setting 720p we're still Working with an igpu but this is really Great I mean to be able to play this Over 60 FPS on integrated Graphics is Pretty amazing if you ask me GTA 5 was another one that ran Phenomenally on this little setup here We're getting an average over 101 FPS Out of this game 1080p normal settings I Know it's an older one but it's still a

Lot of fun to play and it runs very well With this Mini PC Thank you [Music] [Music] Here's the Witcher 3 at 1080p with a low Medium mix we're getting an average of Around 71 FPS if you wanted to take this Down to 900p it actually jumps up quite A bit you can get an average of around 92 but uh at 1080 still fully playable [Music] And finally God of War 720p original Settings now ever since this game Released I've been really trying to get A steady 60 out of it with integrated Graphics especially Radeon be it Vega or Even the rdna 2 graphics and with this Running 6000 megahertz Ram we can Actually get an average of 68 FPS into This game [Music] So obviously adding faster Ram to the 6000 series powered mini PCS is going to Up that GPU performance and of course We're going to see more powerful igpus In the future hopefully we get our dna3 In a desktop variant uh that's really All I would personally need if I could Play my favorite games even just locked At 60 1080p then I'd be perfectly fine With the setup like that but when it Comes to integrated Graphics right now At the time of making this video These

Are the most powerful integrated Graphics that I've seen so far I mean Even compared to something with LP ddr5 Ram running at 6 400 megahertz since the Radeon 680m in these h-series ryzen Chips actually runs at a little higher Clock 2400 megahertz as opposed to 2200 Megahertz and on top that having beefier CPU cores with the HX really does make a Difference but yeah this thing's awesome Especially with that faster Ram really Appreciate you watching let me know your Thoughts in the comments below and as Soon as we can get something more Powerful I'll definitely be getting my Hands on one making a video if you have Any questions let me know down in the Comments and like always thanks for Watching
