AMD added a bunch of new processors to its roadmap. For the consumer market, the company has the Athlon 200GE, a new dual-core processor with four threads. It has a 3.2GHz base clock, a 35W TDP, and a Vega-based integrated graphics solution with 3 CUs. Basically a cut-down version of Raven Ridge, for just $55.
The highly efficient “Zen” architecture helps the AMD Athlon 200GE processor stay cool and quiet4 for reliable computing experiences, while its “Zen” processor and graphics cores enable responsive PC performance and fluid experiences for games or HD movies. In addition, the AMD Athlon 200GE processor is supported by the existing AMD Socket AM4 infrastructure for a platform that delivers the latest PC features including DDR4 memory, NVMe storage, 4K display support, USB 3.1 Gen2 support, and that offers an easy upgrade path to even more performance with AMD Ryzen™ processors and discrete graphics cards.

The AMD Athlon 200GE desktop processor offers:

  • Up to 169 percent more responsive computing than AMD’s previous generation AMD A6-9500E
  • Up to 67 percent more GPU performance and up to 2X greater power efficiency than the competition
  • Up to 84 percent faster high-definition PC gaming than the competition
  • In Q4 2018, AMD will also roll out the Athlon 220GE and Athlon 240GE. The specifications of those processors will be disclosed at availability.

    On a related note, AMD released some new Athlon Pro and Ryzen PRO processors for the business market. This includes the Athlon PRO 200GE, Ryzen 7 PRO 2700X, Ryzen 7 PRO 2700, and Ryzen 5 PRO 2600.
