Advanced Micro Devices, popularly known as AMD has unveiled the Ryzen 8000G Series of desktop processors. Built on Zen 4 architecture, the new CPUs also boast gaming power and efficiency with low power consumption. More about the expected price of AMD Ryzen 8000G Series in Nepal, its specs, and features in this article.

AMD Ryzen 8000G Series Overview:

Four New Members

Expanding the Ryzen 8000 series are the new 65W processors— Ryzen 7 8700G, Ryzen 5 8600G, Ryzen 5 8500G, and Ryzen 3 8300G. With up to 12 cores, 16 threads, and all the Zen 4 architecture, these new CPUs go head-to-head against Intel’s 14th Gen 65W i7, i5, and i3 SKUs. The integrated graphics here are claimed to be the fastest inbuilt ones for PCs.

AMD 8000G Processors Comparision

AMD has compared its Ryzen 5 8600G and Rzyen 7 8700G against the Intel Core i7-14700K, showing impressive gaming boosts. The famous title Dota 2 is getting 3.2x and 3.3x performance yields respectively. Besides the Radeon 700M graphics, these 8000 Series processors also feature AMD EXPO tech which allows higher memory frequencies and advanced timings for smoother frame rates. AMD claims a smooth experience for 1080p gaming with the inbuilt graphics. 

Meanwhile, the CPU boost is not that impressive, it’s quite similar to the 7000 Series processors due to the same Zen 4 architecture. 

Zen 4 Architecture

This time as well, AMD has gone with the Zen 4 architecture for the 8000G Series. The last-generation architecture is based on TSMC’s 5nm process node. This is the first time that this process has been used in an x86 desktop processor, though we have seen its use in a lot of smartphone SoCs.

To give you a quick refresh, the Zen 4 brought a chiplet-based design where two Core Complex Dies (CCDs) are connected via an Infinity cache Core Chiplet Dies (CCD). Zen 4 promises 1MB of L2 cache per CPU core—almost twice what Zen 3 offers. You get an integrated RDNA 2 GPU and DDR5 memory, PCIe Gen 5 support.

In addition, It is claimed with up to 15% of a single-threaded performance boost, max clock speeds higher than 5GHz, and “AI-accelerated” instructions.

AM5 socket

Ryzen 8000 series becomes the second desktop processor family to support the AM5 socket. It is the continuation of the 7000 Series, by the way. So, if you are thinking of upgrading to the new 8000G processors, you can use the same motherboard from the 7000 Series. If you are coming from the older series, the new AM5 motherboard is needed.

AM5 Socket Features

To refresh the specs of AMD’s AM5, you get a Land Grid Array (LGA) array compared to the Pin Grid Array (PGA) on its predecessor, the AM4. It features 1718 pins, up to 24 lanes of PCIe 5.0, and DDR5 compatibility. Moreover, the connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6 with Dual Band Simultaneous (DBS), Bluetooth LE 5.2, and up to 24 SuperSpeed USB ports with speeds of up to 20Gbps.

Five chipsets

The new Zen 4-based Ryzen 8000 desktop processors consist of five motherboard chipsets. The most premium of the bunch is the X670E with the “E” standing for extreme. X607E guarantees full support for PCIe 5.0 and advanced overclocking.

Then there is the X670, which allows enthusiast-level overclocking and PCIe storage and graphics. While the B650E is the ‘Extreme’ version of the regular B650. You get a faster PCle 5.0 lane, better VRM phases, and a single-click overclocking mechanism. 

And the B650 is targeted at the mainstream audience. It also has PCIe 5.0 lanes but it’s optional. Finally, there is the A620/A620A which is the cheapest one with a PCle 4.0 lane.
