AMD officially launches the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F worldwide

AMD's latest round of desktop APUs have officially arrived. The new Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F are now available worldwide, adding options without graphics to the existing Ryzen 8000G line-up. 

AMD Ryzen 8000 F-Series processors are optimised for efficiency with low power draw and are unlocked for higher overclocked performance at the touch of a button. Additionally, the 8700F comes equipped with an XDNA-based NPU capable of delivering up to 16 TOPS, which will boost AI workloads efficiently.

You can see the specs for both processors in the table below:

Processor Cores /Threads Boost/Base Frequency Total Cache Included Cooler TDP NPU SEP
AMD Ryzen 7 8700F 8 / 16 Up to 5.0GHz / 4.1Ghz 24MB Wraith Stealth 65W Yes $269 (USD)
AMD Ryzen 5 8400F 6 / 12 Up to 4.7GHz / 4.2GHz 22MB Wraith Stealth 65W No $169 (USD)

Regarding performance, AMD compares the Ryzen 5 8400F against the Intel Core i5-13400F, claiming its new Ryzen 5 processor is up to 14% faster in gaming. As for the Ryzen 7 8700F, it's put side-by-side against the Intel Core i5-14400. In this comparison, AMD shows the new Ryzen 7 processors beating the Intel Core chip by up to 24% in gaming and production workloads.

As these new SKUs do not include an iGPU, you'll need to factor in the cost of a discrete GPU to go along with the processor when planning a new build.

KitGuru says: What do you all think of AMD's new Ryzen 8000G options? Are you thinking of building a system with one?
