AMD will bring Ryzen 5000G APUs to retail later this year

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

We don’t know how much these APUs will cost at retail yet, but we should learn more in the months to come. Discuss on our Facebook page, HERE.
