Just ahead of CES 2018 pre-show, AMD has announced a lot of new products will be coming in this year, including Ryzen Desktop APUs and Ryzen Mobile APUs. Now, with the closer and closer to coming time of release, we can also see the full massage of AMD desktop version for Ryzen APU.
The detailed information of these two Ryzen
First of all, let’s take look on what configurations of these Ryzen might have after releasing.
Also known as the Ryzen 2000G series APUs, these processors offer the power of AMD Zen CPU and Radeon Vega GPU in one single package. For starters, AMD will be releasing two different models, as listed below:
Ryzen 5 2400G: 3.6GHz Base / 3.9GHz Max Boost / 4 Cores / 8 Threads / 11 Computational Units for Graphics
Ryzen 3 2200G: 3.5GHz Base / 3.7GHz Max Boost / 4 Cores / 4 Threads / 8 Computational Units for Graphics
This is, the Ryzen 3 2200G offers four CPU cores and four threads clocked at 3.5 GHz plus an 8 compute unit Vega GPU.
As for the price, these two APUs are pretty crazy in what they offer at a low price point. The Ryzen 3 2200G is from $99 dollars, while Ryzen 5 2400G is $169 dollars.
The Ryzen 5 2400G, for example, has a four core, eight thread CPU clocked at 3.6 GHz with a boost up to 3.9 GHz. It also packs a Vega GPU with 11 compute units, or 704 shader cores, with a base clock of 1240 MHz. You get all of this for just $169, which is only $5 more than the Ryzen 5 1400, yet you get higher CPU clocks out of the box and decent integrated graphics.
These two APUs will be available on February 12, 2018, please pay attention to the official website if you’d like to purchase one.
