Earlier this week, AMD officially announced the Ryzen 5000G series of processors with integrated Radeon graphics. For now, these processors are only going to be available to OEMs making pre-built PCs, but later this year, the DIY market should be able to get their hands on them too.
Following on from the initial announcement, Anandtech reports that AMD will be making these processors available at retail later this year. This means those building their own PC will be able to buy one without having to resort to a pre-build from the likes of Dell, Lenovo, HP etc.
For those who missed the initial announcement, the Ryzen 5000G series is AMD's latest round of APUs, including up to eight Zen 3 CPU cores and up to eight ‘Radeon Graphics Cores', which are based on the Vega graphics architecture.
You can see the full specifications for each processor in the table below:
|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|
