The new AMD Ryzen 5000G gets powerful graphics
AMD has introduced a series of Ryzen 5000G desktop processors with an integrated graphics core. The new products are designed to "move" Intel solutions in the PC segment without a discrete graphics card and will go on sale soon — though with some reservations.
The new series includes six models: the eight-core Ryzen 7 5700G and 5700GE, the six-core Ryzen 5 5600G and 5600GE, and the Ryzen 3 5300G and 5300GE with four cores. All of them are manufactured using a 7nm process technology and are built on the basis of the Zen 3 microarchitecture.
All processors, except for the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G, received an integrated Vega graphics card, and the flagship chip, capable of overclocking up to 4.6 GHz, is equipped with an integrated Radeon graphics accelerator with 512 stream processors and an iGPU frequency of up to 2.0 GHz.
According to the vendor, the new items significantly outperform the 10th generation Intel Core processors in gaming scenarios when using the integrated video core. In addition, the company demonstrated the results of testing proprietary chips when launching application software, where the "red" CPUs also outperformed competitors.
AMD has already started shipping the Ryzen 3 5300G, but the processor will not be available at retail - it is positioned as a solution for assemblers of ready-made PCs. Availability dates for other models in the new series will be announced at a later date.
