AMD introduces Ryzen Desktop APUs with Radeon Vega Graphics
AMD has officially launched their newest APUs, codenamed ‘Raven Ridge’. The two SKUs feature a Zen-based CPU with Radeon Vega integrated graphics, which edges AMD a little bit over the competition, Intel, in terms of integrated graphics.
|APU||# of Cores||# of Threads||CPU Base Clock||CPU Boost Clock||Graphics Compute Units||GPU Max Clock||L2/L3 Cache||TDP||Price|
|Ryzen 5 2400G with Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics||4||8||3.6GHz||3.9GHz||11||1250MHz||6MB||65W||Php9,150|
|Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics||4||4||3.5GHz||3.7GHz||8||1100MHz||6MB||65W||Php5,735|
The great thing about these chips are that they are already compatible with existing motherboards that use the AM4 socket. This includes A320, B350, and X370 based boards. In the box, both APUs come included with an AMD Wraith Stealth cooler.
As for availability, expect local retailers to have them in stock shortly. OEM systems that use the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2400G are expected to be available in the coming months.
