AMD Ryzen 4000 Series desktop processors are here but you can’t buy them

AMD has released the world’s first 7nm x86 desktop processors with built-in Radeon graphics for consumer and commercial PC markets. This includes AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Desktop Processors and AMD Athlon 3000 Series Desktop Processors, both with integrated Radeon Graphics and PRO versions for the enterprise market.

The Ryzen 4000 Series Desktop Processors are built on the industry-leading 7nm process and Zen 2 core architecture. This is the fourth generation Ryzen, just to be clear.

The new CPU are essentially Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) “Fusion” processors, first introduced in 2011–64-bit processors that combine a CPU and GPU on a single die. AMD APUs enable systems without a discrete graphics card and are suitable for both low-power and high-performance devices including notebooks and PCs, as well as video game consoles such as the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One.

While AMD has shied away from the term “APU” since Ryzen CPUs with integrated Vega graphics came into the picture, they are what they are–CPUs with integrated graphics.

AMD’s Ryzen-based “APUs” series is represented by the G-Series, codenamed Raven Ridge, based on the Zen architecture.

According to AMD, the Ryzen 4700G Desktop Processor delivers up to 2.5X multi-threaded performance over the previous generation (Ryzen 5 3400G/ Ryzen 3 3200G).

Against its competitors, the Ryzen 4700G is up to 5 per cent better in single-thread performance than the Intel Core i7-9700; offers up to 31 per cent greater multithreaded performance than the Intel Core i7-9700; and up to 202 per cent better graphics performance than the Intel Core i7-9700.

The AMD Athlon 3000 G-Series, on the other hand, run on the venerable FM2 platform, offering up to four cores CPU with a base frequency of 3.9GHz and three GPU cores.
