At the 19th China International Digital Interactive Entertainment Exhibition (ChinaJoy 2021), AMD officially released the Radeon RX 6600 XT for an MSRP of $369. You can go through the specs and how we feel about that here. All in all, the rumors were on-point. AMD also revealed the Ryzen 5000G (Cezanne AM4) processors for the retail “DIY” market at the event. These processors were officially launched in April but were limited to the OEM and SI markets. Now, the company is making them available to mainstream users, without the PRO branding and features, and Intel’s non-K Rocket Lake-S parts being the primary targets.
The Ryzen 5000G series is quite similar to the Ryzen 5000 CPU lineup, with a few key distinctions: A Vega-based (up to 8CU) iGPU, half as much L3 cache, and lack of support for PCIe 4.0. These SKUs should be priced slightly lower than their mainstream Ryzen counterparts, and launch sometime in August. The Cezanne AM4 series will also feature the first quad-core (desktop) Zen 3 part in the form of the Ryzen 3 5300G: A boost clock of 4.2GHz, and a TDP of 65W, making it ideal for budget gamers, even more so considering the GPU shortages.
The Ryzen 7 5700G (flagship) packs 8 cores and 16 threads, with a boost clock of up to 4.6GHz, 16MB L3 cache, and a TDP of 65W. It comes with an 8CU (512 SP) iGPU, with a frequency of up to 2.0GHz.
