AMD Introduces Ryzen 5000 Desktop Processors with Radeon Graphics

Zen 3 Cores Arrive In The New Generation Of APUs

Today AMD is launching their new the-product-formerly-known-as-an-APU lineup with the AMD Ryzen 7 5000 G-Series Desktop Processors with Radeon Graphics. (APU is much easier to write.) Does this finally usher in the era of integrated RDNA or RDNA2 graphics?! No. But it does bring AMD’s Zen 3 core architecture to APUs (the OEM-only Ryzen 4000 G-Series made use of Zen 2 cores).

Via AMD:

Ryzen 5000 G-Series Lineup

The flagship SKU is the Ryzen 7 5700G, a 65W TDP offering which combines an 8-core, 16-thread Zen 3 CPU (with 3.8 GHz base / 4.6 GHz max boost clocks) and some form of Radeon graphics with 8 cores and a 2000 MHz GPU clock. They do not specify GPU architecture, so we can probably assume they are using the same Vega architecture as last gen here. Not bad, just not as exciting, obviously.

Here’s a screenshot of the spec overview for the new Ryzen 5000 G-Series lineup for your viewing pleasure:

Further reading with all of the details (other than graphics architecture) on these products can be found from AMD at the following links:

As you may have guessed, each model is offered in a 65W “G” and 35W “GE” variant, as with previous generations of these products. As to availability, these are coming to OEM desktops “in the coming weeks”, but no word on retail/DIY availability (sounds like these are OEM-only as with the 4000 G-Series).
