Last week AMD introduced Ryzen 2000 (Zen+) processors, which were followed by low-power APUs.
Low-power Ryzen APUs
The GE series are basically 35W TDP version of the 65W APUs. Both Ryzen 5 2400GE and Ryzen 3 2200GE are clocked lower than their 65W variants (~300 MHz difference in base frequency). The clock speeds of the integrated graphics are the same, but we are not sure if what are the other limitations here since 35W have to be shared between CPU and GPU.
Despite the fact that both APUs are listed as ‘2nd Gen AMD Ryzen’, the specifications seem to suggest otherwise. According to the specs at AMD website, low-power APUS are using 14nm FinFET technology, while Zen+ CPUs are 12nm.
Pricing has not yet been confirmed.
