AMD introduces Ryzen 4000G series APIs for system builders

The first Renoir APUs, AMD’s processors with Zen 2 cores and integrated Vega GPUs, in the Ryzen 4000 series will only be available for system builders. Models for self-builders will follow later.

The Ryzen 4000G series of APUs, known by the name Renoir, have the Zen 2 cores on board, which is also in the Ryzen 3000 series of desktop processors and which AMD uses in its latest laptop processors. Unlike the 3000 series desktop processors, the 4000 series APIs also have a graphics processor on board. The series contains up to eight compute units based on the Vega architecture.

AMD is releasing three models for the OEM market and another three for the business market in the Pro line. The top model, the Ryzen 7 4700G, has eight smt cores on board and combines that with eight Vega-cu’s. A step lower comes the Ryzen 5 4600G with six smt cores and seven Vega-cu’s. The entry-level model, the Ryzen 3 4300G, has four SMT cores and six Vega-Cu’s on board. All three APU’s have a tdp of 65W. AMD also releases energy-efficient variants of these processors, with the suffix GE instead of G. These have a tdp of 35W and are otherwise the same as the G variants in terms of specifications, except for slightly lower clocks.

The business line in the Ryzen Pro series consists of three models that largely correspond to the regular series. The three models have eight, six and four SMT cores in sequence, and eight, seven and six Vega-Cu’s respectively. The Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G, Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G and Ryzen 3 Pro 4350G all have a tdp of 65W, and offer remote management and additional security features.

In addition to the Renoir apus, AMD has announced some new Athlons with built-in GPU, but those are Picasso socs, with Zen + and Vega on board. The Renoir APIs, apart from tdps and tdp and clock speed optimizations, are the same as the socs released by AMD for laptops this summer. The dies are identical and also offer the same features, including eight pci-e 3.0 lanes. According to AMD, the new APIs are primarily combined with B550 motherboards by OEMs.

The performance of the Renoir apu’s should be a lot better in terms of CPU than the previous generation, partly thanks to extra cores and partly thanks to the better performance of Zen 2 cores. The GPU must also perform a lot better than the previous generation and must make it possible to play games at 1080p, albeit with low settings. AMD does not give prices for OEM parts. The company does promise to come up with Renoir models for self-builders later this year. Details about it have not yet been given.
