AMD’s Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs (Renoir AM4) have finally made their way to retail in certain markets around the world. There is a catch though: They’re all bundled with B550 boards and can’t be bought separately. While this may be a deal-breaker to many of you, users looking to build a new computer may find it an attractive offer.
Multiple regional retailers have already started selling AMD’s 7nm APUs for amiable prices. Looking at the pricing, they’re more or less the same as that recommended in the below table.
You’re basically getting up to eight Zen 2 cores at the same price as the Matisse parts with a potent integrated graphics solution to boot. Of course, the lower L3 cache means the gaming performance will be markedly lower than the Ryzen 3000 lineup, it’ll be more than sufficient for most users.
