The highly anticipated Quad-Core Ryzen™ 5 2400G and Ryzen™ 3 2200G Desktop Processors Combined with High-performance Radeon “Vega” Architecture with Revolutionary “Zen” CPU Cores on a Single Chip are finally out. So what does this mean to the PC consumer market?
There’s no doubt that AMD Ryzen processors has been successful when they stormed the market about a year ago delivering a balance betweent Price and Performance which has been well accepted by PC enthusiasts, professionals, and PC gamers alike.
These new desktop APUs will enable budget conscious users to build a desktop computer and enjoy high end graphics without having to break the bank since graphics cards in the market right now are insanely expensive due to shortage and demand.
They also 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.
“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.”
Ryzen desktop APUs features improved AMD SenseMI technology that 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.
