As expected, here are the new Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G quad-core processors from AMD. These are the first Ryzen APUs for the desktop platform, they combine Zen-based CPU cores with Vega-based integrated graphics.
The Ryzen 5 2400G costs $169 and has four cores, eight threads, a 3.9GHz Turbo, 6MB cache, and a 65W TDP. The Radeon RX Vega graphics feature 11 CUs with a maximum clockspeed of 1250MHz.
Next we have the Ryzen 3 2200G, this version is limited to four threads and has a MSRP of $99. It has a 3.7GHz Turbo, 6MB cache and a 65W TDP. Its Radeon Vega 8 graphics part has 8 CUs with a maximum frequency of 1100MHz.
Both chips are available immediately and are compatible with current AM4 motherboards (after a BIOS update).
AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today introduced the world's most powerful graphics on a desktop processor with the release of two Ryzen™ Desktop processor with built-in Radeon™ Vega graphics models.1 Now available, AMD Ryzen™ 5 2400G and AMD Ryzen™ 3 2200G processors combine four of the latest "Zen" CPU cores with advanced Radeon "Vega" architecture on a single chip, offering leadership levels of system and graphics performance3 at their respective $169 USD SEP and $99 USD SEP price points.
"When we launched our first Ryzen processors a year ago, we began driving innovation and competition across the PC market. We remain dedicated to this mission throughout 2018, as we further strengthen our Ryzen portfolio by adding two leadership APUs designed to meet the varying needs of today's PC users," said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Business Group, AMD. "AMD Ryzen Desktop APUs are a perfect example of the innovation we bring to market for consumer and commercial PC users. Combining our high-performance CPU and GPU architectures, this new category of Ryzen desktop processors is designed to deliver a smooth overall computing experience, as well as the ability to enjoy true 1080p HD gaming, eSports or advanced display features through the visual fidelity of the built-in Radeon Vega graphics."
An advanced feature set further enhances the performance of Ryzen desktop APUs. Improved AMD SenseMI technology enables lower power usage at higher frequencies and reduced memory latencies. The new APUs also support Precision Boost 2, a multi-core boost algorithm that enables higher frequencies in gaming and real-world applications. And, with their built-in graphics, these new processors are compatible with Radeon™ FreeSync technology and compatible displays for effortlessly smooth gameplay.
HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING
The Ryzen 5 2400G processor delivers:
The same graphics performance in a single processor as combining the $199 USD Intel Core i5-8400 with an $89 USD NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 discrete gaming GPU
Up to 156% more graphics performance than the Intel Core i5-8400
Up to 21% more system performance than the Intel Core i5-8400
Up to 39% faster graphics performance when overclocked
Continuing the commitment to long-term stability with an exemplary customer experience in mind, Ryzen Desktop APUs support the same Socket AM4 infrastructure as Ryzen™ Desktop CPUs. Therefore, the new processors are compatible with the existing AM4 ecosystem of 120+ motherboards, requiring only a simple BIOS update.
Like all AMD Ryzen Desktop processors, Ryzen Desktop APUs are unlocked for performance tuning of CPU, DRAM, and GPU settings through the AMD Ryzen™ Master overclocking utility to enable even more performance for users who appreciate the freedom to overclock.
