AMD has introduced 12 new Ryzen processors based on Zen architecture.
AMD announces Ryzen 4000G series
Today AMD unveiled its Ryzen 4000G series based on Renoir silicon, featuring onboard Vega graphics. Sadly, the processors will not be available for consumers. AMD has made a decision to focus on OEM integrators. This is where the vast majority of the APUs end up anyway, according to AMD.
The AMD Ryzen 4000G series are compatible with AMD B550 and X570 motherboards. However, AMD is also introducing the Ryzen PRO 4000G series, which will support a new AMD PRO565 chipset.
AMD underlined that the announcement of the Ryzen 4000G series does not explicitly mean that there will not be new AMD APUs for 400- and 500-series motherboards.
