AMD has introduced the next generation of its APUs (Accelerated Processing Units), in the form of a 5000G line codenamed “Cezanne“.
The APUs have been released as OEM exclusives, for now, meaning they will only be available to manufacturers such as Dell, HP, Lenovo, and others. Later this year, AMD is expected to release these processors to the mass consumer market as well.
- AMD has released the Ryzen 9 5900 and Ryzen 7 5800 OEM processors
- AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ processors could have an RDNA 2 GPU
- Gigabyte introduces the Aorus line of 4K monitors
- First Alienware laptop since 2007
The new 5000G APUs implement an improved AMD Zen 3 core, with a significant IPC improvement over the Zen 2. When it comes to graphics card support, there are between six and eight graphics cores, based on the Vega architecture.
