AM5 processors with RDNA3 graphics and a new X3D option for AM4

AMD has unveiled a number of new desktop options, adding a total of eight new SKUs – four each for AM5 and the older AM4 platform. The products include the new Ryzen 8000 G-Series for AM5, which combine Zen4 cores with RDNA3 graphics up to the Radeon 780M.

With their modest 65-watt TDPs these new APUs (as AMD once called them) have quite a bit to offer without requiring a beefy cooler or powerful PSU, and will no doubt be featured in some (relatively) low-cost AM5 builds. So, how much will the top-end Ryzen 7 8700G with Radeon 780M graphics cost you? Let’s examine this table:

At $329 USD a build with the highest SKU will get a bit pricey once an AM5 motherboard and DDR5 are factored in, but there are some very interesting possibilities with a part like this for small form-factor (and maybe even fanless) integration.

Also revealed is a new X3D processor for socket AM4, with the Ryzen 7 5700X3D an 8-core/16-thread option just like the 5800X3D, but with lower clocks (base 3 GHz, up to 4.1 GHz boost).

At $249 USD this might just be a go-to gaming chip for budget builds in 2024, and it goes on sale January 31. This lower-clocked, lower-priced 5800X3D variant was not the only AM4 processor revealed, as there will also be three 65W SKUs added to the lineup on the same date:

To add in even more editorial commentary to what should be a simple news post, with these lower AM4 prices, and especially with that new $249 Ryzen 7 5700X3D, I think 2024 will remain a great year to build with AMD’s older platform.

    Nice to see AMD stretching AM4 out a bit.

  2. Operandi

    The 8000 series APUs are pretty interesting in that even though its not really called out much the 8500 and 8300 are actually using the smaller ‘C’ variant for some of the cores. This is a good sign that AMD finally has a good monolithic CPU to tackle the mainstream the segment and that they can produce in volume without having to cut down a full sized CXX to a ridiculously small size that could have gone into more powerful (and profitable) CPU. Also nice to see them continue to use the AM4 platform where it makes sense; saving both AMD and the consumer money.
