AMD needs more low-end APUs

AMD is to resume the production of its low-end Ryzen 3000G series.

The company is said to resume production of the low-end Ryzen 3000G series. The report from Board Channels claims that AMD is planning to make as many as 30K CPUs to be sold alongside cheap motherboards like the B450M series. The report does not state if the same SKUs that were launched in 2019, or something with updated hardware.

AMD had only released two Ryzen 3000G models: quad-core 3400G and quad-core 3200G. The latter did not support SMT (so only 4 threads were available). The underlying architecture may appear old by today’s standards, as are looking at AMD Picasso chip with Zen+ 12nm node.

The 3000G series offers up to 4.2 GHz boost clock and up to Radeon RX Vega 11 graphics. The CPUs were officially targeting Intel 9th Gen core CPUs with 4 and 6 cores (i5-9400 and i3-9100 respectively). A quick check on Newegg tells us that Ryzen 3400G currently retails at around $127 while 3200G is still available at $99. This is not a good price considering Ryzen 5 5600G is now available at $140.

Over the past 4 years, AMD launched Ryzen 4000G and 5000G series, but the DIY launch was, frankly speaking, all over the place. Hopefully, the next-gen Ryzen G-Series will see more attention from AMD and more options for DIY builders.
