After announcing the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G for OEMs back in April, AMD has officially confirmed them for the retail market during its Computex 2021 keynote. These are APUs (Accelerated Processing Unit), which means it’s a CPU and GPU in a single chip. Let’s take a look at the new AMD Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G APUs including their expected price in Nepal.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, Ryzen 7 5700G Overview:

These APUs are codenamed as “Cezanne” and are aimed to soften the blow of the ongoing global shortage of discrete graphics cards which has led to enormous price hikes. Based on the specifications of these APUs, they compete with 11th-gen Intel Core i5-11600K and i7-11700K

Performance

Starting with the mid-tier Ryzen 5 5600G, it offers 6 cores and 12 threads with 3.9GHz and 4.4GHz of base and boost clocks, respectively. Furthermore, the Ryzen 5 5600G comes with 3MB of L2 and 16MB of L3 cache. Its integrated graphics (iGPU) is relatively under-powerful than the one on 5700G. Here, AMD has fitted in 7 cores Radeon Vega 7 GPU (448 stream processors).

Moving on, Ryzen 7 5700G is an 8 cores/16 threads APU with a base frequency of 3.8GHz, which can reach up to 4.6GHz of boost clock. It has a 4MB L2 cache and a 16MB L3 cache, for a total of 20MB of cache memory. As for the graphics, it’s packed with powerful 8 cores Radeon Vega 8 GPU (512 stream processors) clocked at 2.0GHz.

AMD also says that the Ryzen 7 5700G has the “world’s fastest graphics in a desktop processor”. Furthermore, like other current-generation Ryzen CPUs, the 5600G, and 5700G are based on AMD’s Zen 3 CPU architecture—and are built on TSMC’s 7nm die lithography.

vs Intel

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G vs Intel Core i7-11700 Performance

AMD claims that the Ryzen 7 5700G outperforms the Intel Core i7-11700 CPU in productivity tasks by up to 1.63 times. Similarly, in terms of gaming performance, it delivers up to 2.45x improvement over its Intel counterpart (which has Intel UHD 750 iGPU). Sadly, no performance figures were provided for the Ryzen 5 5600G.
