After months of various leaks and rumours, today AMD has officially announced the Ryzen 5000G series of processors. These are APUs with integrated Radeon graphics cores alongside Zen 3 CPU cores for a better all-in-one solution for gaming without a dedicated graphics card.
As expected, these are 7nm Ryzen processors with up to 8 cores and 16 threads. Each SKU has an energy efficient version too with a lower TDP, so the Ryzen 7 5700G is a 65W chip, while the Ryzen 7 5700GE has a 35 TDP. Each processor also has a number of dedicated “Radeon Graphics” cores, while we don’t have confirmation, these integrated GPUs seem to be based on the Vega architecture.
The table below has the full specifications for each Ryzen 5000G series processor:
|SKU||Cores/Threads||Base/Boost Clock Speed (GHz)||Integrated Graphics||TDP (W)|
|AMD Ryzen 7 5700G||8 / 16||3.8 / 4.6||8 Radeon Graphics Cores||65|
|AMD Ryzen 7 5700GE||8 / 16||3.2 / 4.6||8 Radeon Graphics Cores||35|
|AMD Ryzen 5 5600G||6 / 12||3.9 / 4.4||7 Radeon Graphics Cores||65|
|AMD Ryzen 5 5600GE||6 / 12||3.4 / 4.4||7 Radeon Graphics Cores||35|
|AMD Ryzen 3 5300G||4 / 8||4.0 / 4.2||6 Radeon Graphics Cores||65|
|AMD Ryzen 3 5300GE||4 / 8||3.6 / 4.2||6 Radeon Graphics Cores||35|
You will notice the lack of pricing information and that is due to the fact that these will not be sold at retail like normal Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. Instead, they will be sold to OEMs, who will then announce pre-built systems featuring the Ryzen 5000G series processors. Currently, AMD tells us to expect “new exciting OEM desktop systems in the coming weeks”, so keep an eye out for announcements from the likes of Dell, HP, Lenovo etc.
