AMD intros the Ryzen 5000 G-Series APUs for desktops
AMD has launched its Cezanne APUs for desktops. The new AMD Ryzen 5000 G-Series Desktop Processors with Radeon Graphics are now official and there are six model choices ranging from parts with 8C/16T with boost clocks up to 4.6GHz, to parts with 4C/8T and a 4.2GHz boost clock. You can find the six processors outlined on AMD’s official desktop APU website or just scroll down for my table below.
Cezanne APUs mix Zen 3 CPU cores and Vega GPU cores for “the best of Zen 3 1T and nT performance” as well as “great gaming and creation with or without a dGPU”. AMD provided various performance comparison slides pitting the new Cezanne chips against 10th gen Intel Core processors at similar RRPs. I’ve embedded some of these below, as well as the interesting intergenerational comparison of the Ryzen 7 5700G vs Ryzen 4700G in a mix of content creation tasks.
