AMD Ryzen 4000 series desktop processors announced

After the popularity of the Ryzen 4000 series mobile processor, AMD has now launched its desktop counterpart. The newly announced Ryzen 4000 desktop processors are actually the mobile processors adapted for use on desktops. Read along to know more about the AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop processors.

Overview

It’s important to note that the latest AMD Ryzen 4000 Desktop processors are all based on 7nm Ryzen Zen 2 architecture and not Zen 3. The latter is said to debut later this year. All the processors come with integrated Radeon graphics, which gives them an advantage over their Intel counterparts. AMD is already calling it the world’s most advanced x86 desktop processors with graphics. The Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs continue to make use of the AM4 socket.

AMD Ryzen 4000 G-series Desktop Processor

The G-series is among the first offering under the new Ryzen 4000 lineup. This includes six new processors. The three of them have G-suffix and operate on 65W TDP. Each of the G-suffix processors has a GE-suffixed counterpart that operates on 35W TDP. The G-series are based on the same die and architecture as their mobile counterparts. And the only difference being the TDP and clock frequency has been scaled up in the desktop processors. The GE-suffixed processors are underpowered and are hence suited for a less-demanding environment. Top-of-the-line Ryzen 7 4700G features eight cores and 16 threads with a base frequency of 3.6 GHz which can go up to 4.4 GHz when boosted.
