AMD outs first Ryzen 5000-Series chips with integrated graphics

With GPU shortages showing few signs of letting up in 2021, a powerful desktop series processor with an integrated graphics card seems like a more attractive proposition.

AMD is setting up to the plate with its first Ryzen 5000-G Series Desktop processors to include Radeon graphics. The company says the integrated solution offers smooth 1080p gaming right out of the box.

The company is also providing a path to HD+ or 4K when you’re ready for an upgrade. Of course, you’ll only get that higher-end, bleeding edge performance from the RDNA/Navi based RX 6700 XT standalone GPU.

The new line ups feature the 7mn Zen 3 series processors paired with up to Vega 8 graphics. It won’t pull up any trees, but will provide a fine solution for a wide selection of gamers, especially those who’re immersed in multiplayer games like Fortnite and Overwatch, for instance.

The highest end model is an eight-core Ryzen 7 5700G processor which has a TPD of 65W. The base / boost frequency is 3.8GHz / 4.6GHz, while you can expect a GPU clock speed of 2,000MHz.

The eight-core Ryzen 7 5700GE offers 35W, with speeds of 3.2GHz / 4.6GHz and 2,000MHz GPU speeds. There’s also a pair of Ryzen 3 models and two Ryzen 5 models that make up the six new APUs launched today. You can see the comparison table below.

AMD Ryzen 5000 G-Series Desktop Processors with Radeon Graphics are designed with industry-leading 7nm process “Zen 3” processor technology for faster, efficient processing to get it all done, faster than ever before, while running cool and quiet.”
