The doubts about these new APUs were high and are now dispelled. Many expected significant changes to key sections, but AMD doesn’t appear to be for the job for reasons it hasn’t disclosed, not clarifying whether this is a technical or theoretical strategy. , or a simple marketing strategy. Either way, the new Ryzen 5000Gs are a step forward, but enough to stand up to Intel?

While updating AMD with these new APUs is a step forward, they are certainly a step away from Intel in terms of gaming. And while these Ryzen 5000G APUs are based on the latest Zen 3 architecture from AMD, they still suffer from a weak iGPU and some adjacent limitations that Intel doesn’t have.
Starting from the general characteristics, we will have two well differentiated models, at least for the moment, which in both cases have a iGPU Vega 8
They will also share the consumption, since it is set at 65 watts as TDPSo it’s not an APU that really wastes energy. As expected, they will arrive for socket AM4 and these two APUs will be compatible with motherboards that come with it as well as with 500 series chipsets, except in those that are compatible with PCIe 4.0 this will decrease at a rate of PCIe 3.0 because AMD did not include support in these Ryzen 5000G.
AMD Ryzen 7 5700G
We are talking about AMD’s high-end APU and as such it has 8 cores and 16 threads at 3.8 GHz speed as a base, which is boosted up to 4.6 GHz in Boost mode. His iGPU Vega 8 has 8 CUs, which can reach up to 2 GHz.
As for its caches, it houses 4 MB of L2 and the commented 16 MB of L3, all for a TDP of 65 watts. On its price and availability, AMD has quantified it at nothing less than $ 359 as MSRP and will be available from 5 August.

The smaller of the two brothers will arrive on the market with a slightly lower configuration, this one being 6 hearts and 12 threads, which can be performed at a frequency of 3.9 GHz in plinth and 4.4 GHz in Boost mode. Regarding its caches, we are talking about 3 MB of L2 and 16 MB of L3
Something similar is happening with your iGPU, as it becomes 7 CU at a frequency of 1.9 GHz, but keep your TDP in those already mentioned 65 watts. Therefore, its price will be lower than that of its brother, the latter being $ 259 as MSRP and having the same availability date 5 August.
The Ryzen 5000G will also have a PRO version for professionals
Three processors with three aspects of low power are the options AMD will offer companies looking for the best in security. And is that these Ryzen 5000G will arrive in 6 different flavors based on three processors, which are the Ryzen 7 PRO 5750G, Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G and Ryzen 3 PRO 5350G, in addition to having its GE aspects: 5750GE, 5650GE and 5350GE.
AMD cites several advantages of the 4000 series to the 5000 series in its processors, this being an increase in the 19% of CPI
- AMD phantom battery
- Support for Secured Core PC
- FIPS 140-3 certification
Ryzen PRO 5000 Series
Out of curiosity, AMD has not released any pricing or availability for these processors, which can be understood from the perspective that they will only be available to OEMs. What he revealed are his characteristics.
AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 5750G and PRO 5750GE
The oldest of the brothers will have the particularity of sharing a configuration of 8 cores and 16 threads next to a 20 MB L2 + L3 in total, still under the protection of the Zen 3 architecture.
The differences lie in their frequencies and consumption, since in its aspect G we speak of a base frequency of 3.8 GHz and a boost from 4.6 GHz in order to 65 watts, while the GE version lowers its base frequency to 3.2 GHz and with it your TDP to 35 watts.
AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G and PRO 5650GE
The mids in the series lower their claims to a 6-core, 12-thread setup with the surprising 19MB L2 + L3 figure and like in the Ryzen 7 series their differences are frequencies and TDP.
The Ryzen 5 PRO 5650G reaches 3.9 GHz in plinth and 4.4 GHz in Boost for a TDP of 65 watts, while the Ryzen 5 PRO 5650GE achieves 3.4 GHz and 4.4 GHz respectively for solo 35 watts of consumption.
AMD Ryzen 3 PRO 5350G and PRO 5350GE
Finally, we have the Ryzen 3, where the Ryzen 3 PRO 5350G rules over the Ryzen 3 PRO 5350GE. Both have 4 cores and 8 threads and 10MB of L2 + L3 cached, but what we see in their older siblings is repeating itself.
The first obtains a base frequency of 4 GHz and a boost of 4.2 GHz in order to 65 watts of TDP, the second gets instead 3.6 GHz Yes 4.2 GHz in order to 35 watts respectively.
