Looking at the GPU specs on AMD's site, it's the same as the 4000G series for the 5300G and 5600G, and 100MHz lower for the 5700G. So nothing to get excited over in that respect.

For iGPU they only compare it to the 10700K on the slides, which is not very promising and could be considered bullying.

ID: gudfx9w

lol they also compared the R7 4700G to the non-K i7-9700, last time around

ID: gudigzv

They are probably prepared some time in advance, and Rocket Lake is too new to have been benchmarked.

CPU, however, is much better, so Cezanne would be preferable for a PC with just an iGPU temporarily, but to be used with a decent dGPU later. As for the motherboard, B450/A520 could be the way to go if you want it cheap (no PCIE-4.0 on these APUs anyway), and maybe B550 if you want really high memory clocks? Hopefully, these will be available through grey markets again.

Will B450 have BIOSes to support them?

I guess the 8 cpu cores of zen3 needed the extra power so they moved the power from iGPU to the zen3 cores? That’s why they clocked the iGPU lower? Just guessing here.....

ID: gudpzz9

That was my guess too when I saw this change. AMD probably determined that in most cases a higher CPU clocker and lower GPU clock gets better performance in games.

For OEM. They could have made a killing with the current GPU market. I guess availability is low. At least they mentioned that:

The AMD Ryzen 5000 G-Series will initially be available in pre-built systems and we look forward to bringing it to the channel for DIY customers later this year.

to the channel for DIY customers later this year.

at current market if they bring it to diy market, i doubt it will be any cheap. maybe $250 for 6c sku and $400 for 8c sku. gotta capitalize maximum you can since production capactity ain't enough to satisfy demand anyway

ID: guei17p

Unless they reduce prices on the 5600X and the 5800X I don't see the APUs being cheaper at all. More like $300 for the 5600G and $450 for the 5700G, and that's if we are lucky.

Realistically they're still going to make a killing since they'll sell all the inventory anyway.

ID: guddcsl

they said the same thing for 4000 G series.....

ID: guddrpi

I don't remember them saying it. I remember AMD saying that they're looking into releasing APUs for the DIY crowd, but nothing specific like this. They may well have been talking about 5000G.

ID: gue8jbz

I don't think we ever said that for 4000G.

ID: gudpsm4

Yep, hopefully they do actually bring 5000G to DIY.

Although with these wafer shortages and AMD focusing on OEM/SI/Pre-built, we'll see.

ID: guejtec

Key word: Later this year

Props for the slides not even pretending it's a move forward on the GPU side, kinda as expected. Hurry the fuck up DDR5.

Radeon graphics

Is this Vega or RDNA2?

ID: gudsccb

Vega. It's on the article.

Those slides are interesting. I do wish they had done their testing on the new 11th gen GPU. Intel said the gains are significant.

Considering I only play World of Warcraft and league of legends it looks like I can just buy the intel . I wanted the AMD but don’t want to wait till the end of the year.

Really wish they had released the g series for non pre built on launch

Looks like AMD has decided to reduce the APU value proposition, because it was cannibalising dGPU sales and/or supply is constrained. It's a pity.

ID: guef7ja

That would make sense if they'd released a lowend GPU since the 550/560 like four years ago now? The 5500 wasn't even vaguely comparable with an APU, just comes down to a lack of willingness (or ability?) to slap some graphics memory on the chip instead of relying on system RAM.

They'll take a solid leap forward with DDR5 and then sadly probably stagnate again until AM6. But at least this time round it seems we'll get a proper CPU option 🙂

this is just me but I suspect AMD has had about enough of being the DIY darlings, but at the expense of OEM share and more to the point, the little bit of OEM share they have ATM is LOW END OEM SHARE. These 6 and 8 C parts can and will compete with the intel CORE products across the board and at the upper levels and if they can chip off a 5 or even 10% share in OEM , that's something that gets the ole stock price humming.

Reading that title...

Guess who's not getting my HTPC now + GPU later down the road money ? It start's with an A and ends with me not purchasing anything AMD for another 5 years.

ID: guea7oc

Cause they can't sell you a product right now? Mr. entitled, Intel is a far worse company to boycott...

This can be very promising though, as high end units available to businesses could really gain some marketshare...if I'm being optimistic.
