Little by little we are learning more data of the expected new APU AMD Ryzen 5000G and this time a filter lets us see the powerful APU Ryzen 7 5800G with Zen 3 CPU cores with 7 nm process.
We still have to wait a little to have with us the new AMD desktop APUs, but the new leaks confirm the data already known, as we will have Zen 3 cores as we see in the desktop CPUs of the new Ryzen 5000 desktop. In the graphics section, it seems that we continue with a solution based on the current Vega GPUs with some performance improvements associated with the optimization of the architecture.
According to the filtered data we have seen lately of the APUs Ryzen 7 5800G and Ryzen 7 5700G have 8 cores and 16 threads so they will mount two CCD modules, it is assumed that we will also have lower configurations with 4 cores and 8 threads with a single CCD module. These nomenclatures can still vary, since we are in front of test processors.
As a graphic solution we have a Vega 8 GPU that has 512 stream processors, 8 ROPs and 8 TMUs, the working speed is only 1800 MHz, something that is quite conservative, since in the current Ryzen 4000G Pro APUs we have seen it at a higher speed reaching up to 2100 MHz. The connectivity of this APU remains in PCIe Gen 3.0, if we want PCIe Gen 4 we have to go to the desktop processors, something quite logical.
As a similar product, although with lower power consumption, we will soon have the new Ryzen 5000 Mobile APUs for laptops, we hope to see performance data to draw conclusions, it is possible that they are very close or a little above the Intel Iris Xe GPUs of the Intel Tiger Lake Gen11 processors. To find these Ryzen 5000 desktop APUs in the market we will still have to wait because the stock of processors is in high demand and factories are not enough, it seems that by mid-year we will see something in the market, but we will see.
