Together with the launch of its Ryzen 3 processors, AMD announces broad availability of its low-end Bristol Ridge desktop processors. This includes A-series APUs as well as Athlon X4 chips without integrated graphics.

These Socket AM4 chips were first announced almost a year ago but until now they were only available for OEM PC makers. It is unknown why AMD waited so long to bring these chips to the retail market.
AMD also announced the worldwide release of the highly popular 7th Generation AMD A-Series desktop processor (codenamed 'Bristol Ridge') and the AMD Athlon™ X4 CPU for socket AM4, providing entry-level processor solutions for this advanced platform. Engineered to deliver a premium PC experience with superior unlocked performance and efficiency for entry level PCs, 7th Gen A-Series processors include Radeon™ graphics for impressive gaming and a quad core architecture for responsive computing. The introduction of 7th Gen A-series, Athlon X4, and Ryzen™ 3 processors completes the stable, mature socket AM4 ecosystem, making it the only future-ready platform that scales all the way from entry-level CPUs all the way up to the high-end 8-core/16-thread Ryzen™ 7 1800X.
