Thanks to newly released slides published over at Informatica Cero and Videocardsz we got a glimpse of two additional models of AMDs upcoming Ryzen mobile APUs that will finally bring integrated Vega graphics.
The two models, named Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G will complete the current lineup consisting only of APUs bearing the U tag like the Ryzen 7 2700U.
|Name||Zen Cores||SMT||Vega Compute Units||TDP|
|Ryzen 7 2700U||4||Yes||10||15|
|Ryzen 5 2500U||4||Yes||8||15|
|Ryzen 5 2400G||4||Yes||11||Up to 65|
|Ryzen 3 2300U||4||No||6||15|
|Ryzen 3 2200G||4||No||8||UP to 65|
With 64 graphics cores per compute unit it’s fairly safe to say that the G-tag will stand for gaming to tackle the upcoming Kaby Lake G processors from Intel. With a TDP of up to 65 Watt, fairly high compared to the rest of the lineup, clock speeds of both Zen and Vega cores can be expected to exceed those of the U series pendants as well. Are these the first steps into Ryzen gaming from AMDs roadmap we’re seeing here? It should be safe to say that the 2400G will be capable of delivering gaming performance topping that of a 2700U model by some margin.
Right now we still have to wait for further details on these new mobile APUs but seeing that even models sporting the already known versions, like the new Acer Swift 3 using a Ryzen 7 2700U, are very hard to come by right now most likely means we’ll have to wait for 2018 to see them in action.
