Today, AMD is unveiling some new desktop processors from its Ryzen 4000 lineup. These are from the G-series, and they're mainstream processors that have Radeon Graphics. AMD promises that not only will you be able to get some work done, but you'll be able to play some games too, if that's your thing.
Either way, they're meant to go head-to-head with Intel's latest desktop chips, and they come in 65W and 35W flavors, so they stand directly against Intel's S-series and T-series, respectively. The three SKUs being unveiled are the Ryzen 7 4700G, the Ryzen 5 4600G, and the Ryzen 3 4300G, with 'GE' variants for the 35W SKUs.
The Ryzen 7, 5, and 3 come with eight, six, and four cores, respectively, and they all have twice as many threads. They also have eight, seven, and six graphics cores. For the Ryzen 7 4700G, the base clock speed is 3.6GHz, with boost clock speeds of up to 4.4GHz.
Showing off some benchmarks, it would seem the results are pretty similar to what we've found in reviews of PCs running AMD Ryzen processors, which is that a Ryzen 5 is more comparable to an Intel Core i7. Directly comparing a Ryzen 7 4700G to an Intel Core i7-9700, AMD said it saw a 240% improvement in 3DMark's Time Spy test.
While these are the consumer models, there are also new Ryzen PRO 4000 processors, along the same lines. These include the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G, Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G, and Ryzen 3 PRO 4350G, once again with GE variants. These are similar processors but with baked-in security features for businesses.
But that's not quite all. Rounding out the lineup are new Athlon processors, such as the Athlon Gold 3150G, 3160GE, and Athlon Silver 3050GE. The former is a quad-core chip with four threads, while the latter is dual-core with four threads. They can be compared to Pentium Gold and Celeron desktop chips.
