AMD Ryzen 3 4300G launches for DIY market in Japan
The 2020 Ryzen 4000G CPU now available through retail.
AMD is not saying farewell to the Zen2 architecture just yet. In fact, the processors from Steam Deck’s Van Gogh or PlayStation/Xbox are not the only Zen2 processors still in production. The company is announcing that Ryzen 3 4300G APU is now launching for the DIY market in Japan, which is already on sale in Europe.
Officially, the 4-core Ryzen 3 4300G is an OEM product only. This means the processor can be found in PCs from system integrators or directly through OEMs. In reality, many retailers were selling OEM CPUs directly to customers, so it didn’t really matter at some point.
This APU is based on AM4 socket and has configurable TDP from 45W to 64W. Since this is a power-limited desktop processor based on an architecture that is now two generations behind, the clock speed is not that high, only up to 4.0 GHz. However, this is still a 7nm APU and should find the perfect use for home multimedia systems, but maybe not for gaming PCs.
Although the original release date was July 21st 2020, the CPU is now getting a new March 10th 2023 launch date in Japan. A boxed version with the Wraith Spire cooling solution costs 15,800 JPY, which is just $116.
As mentioned, the CPU is already on sale on the EU market (and has been for many months). The current price is a mere €86, which is around $90. That’s a good price for a quad-core CPU, considering even used 5000G APUs are not currently sold for less than $100.
