Ryzen 4000 APUs
Ingram Micro conveniently leaked the prices of AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 4000 Pro series APUs. These consists of Ryzen 3 PRO 4350G, Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G and the highest spec- the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G. Retailer and distributor sourced leaks are usually accurate as far as specs and confirmation of SKUs are concerned. The World’s worst kept secret called the ‘Matisse Refresh’ is a testament since a lot of leaks came from Gigabyte, though the SKU numbering was inaccurate. Biostar leaked a good amount of information about the Ryzen Pro series, too.
The prolific leaked information hunter _rogame was able to find UL Benchmark’s 3DMark tests on the upcoming Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 series APUs. Based on the benchmarks, the upcoming APUs have strong CPU performance over its predecessor. The screenshots show the existence of three APUs- the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G, Ryzen 5 Pro 440G and the Ryzen 3 Pro 4200G. The Renoir APUs are based on the 7nm process Zen 2 architecture manufactured by the TSMC.
AMD has three motherboard chipset nomenclature- X, B and A series. As you’d expect, the release of AMD A520 motherboards is inevitable. An industry source suggests the all-new low-budget tier chipset will be available in September. It is not surprising news, to be honest. But it looks like the A-series will be pushed harder towards low-budget gaming PCs and general/ HTPC segment.
Biostar listed all the Ryzen 4000G APUs with some information. This was on the B550GTQ motherboard’s CPU support list before it was taken down. But it showed all the upcoming Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 series Accelerated Processing Units (APU). Just very recently, another motherboard listing confirmed more information. The listing of SKUs on a motherboard support list also indicates its inevitable release, most likely on June with the B550 motherboards are listed for sale.
