It’s as we suspected. AMD will be launching the Ryzen 4000 “Renoir” APUs on the 21st of July for desktop PCs. However, these chips will be mainly limited to OEMs and pre-built computers. There will be only three SKUs, namely the Ryzen 3 PRO 4350G, Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G, and the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G, along with their lower power (35W) GE variants.
|APU||Cores|Threads||Base|Boost||GPU Cores||GPU Frequency||TDP|
|Ryzen 3 PRO 4350G||4/8||2.7GHz|4.1GHz||5||1400MHz||65W|
|Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G||6/12||3.3GHz|4.3GHz||6||1700MHz||65W|
|Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G||8/16||3.6GHz|4.45GHz||8||2100MHz||65W|
|Ryzen 3 4300GE||4/8||3.1GHz|4.35GHz||5||1400MHz||35W|
|Ryzen 5 4400GE||6/12||3.3GHz|4.25GHz||6||1700MHz||35W|
|Ryzen 7 4700GE||8/16||3.5GHz|4.1GHz||8||1900MHz||35W|
The absence of Renoir from the retail market can be seen as a way to prevent the cannibalization of the newly launched Ryzen 3000XT CPUs which will sell at similar prices, minus the iGPUs. The Renoir APUs on the AM4 platform will work on all X570 and B550 boards, plus most B450 and X470s as well. You’ll need to update to the latest BIOS version, featuring AGESA version 188.8.131.52.
In case you’re wondering about all those 4700Gs we’ve seen till now, well those were all engineering samples. All the Renoir APUs to hit the market will come with the PRO branding and it’ll be hard to find them in the DIY segment.
