After a really long wait and loads of leaks, AMD has silently introduced its Ryzen 5000G series. The processors will be available for pre-built PCs, while AMD has no plans to introduce them to the DIY market any time soon. Once again, AMD has failed to provide a highly anticipated processor series to its customers at large.
AMD claims that in competition to the Intel Core i7-10700 CPU, the Ryzen 7 5700G will be up to 38% faster in content creation, 35% faster in productivity, and 80% better in compute performance.
The 6-core and the 4-core processors from the series, Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 3 5300G, respectively are being compared to Intel Core i5-10600 and Core i3-10300 and as per AMD, they will outperform their competitors in all areas. Unfortunately, AMD did not give any comparison against the 11th Gen Core series that features the Xe-LP integrated graphics.
Guru3D claims that AMD has promised to introduce the Ryzen 5000G series to the DIY market later this year. However, it is mentioned on AMD’s website that Ryzen 7 5000G series is OEM only which means we can’t really rely upon AMD’s promise of introducing the processors into the DIY market.
