Ryzen 3000G APU To Release Before End Of Year

Earlier this year we saw AMD release the 2000G range of Ryzen processors. Overall, we were mightily impressed. For the first time in years, AMD seems to be taking an APU style approach to processors which was a fantastic idea given how high the price of a graphics card can be. The 2000G processors were relatively well received, but in fairness, went under the radar a little quickly.

AMD does, however, have another trick up its sleeve. In a report via VideocardZ, the Ryzen series may see one final release before the end of the year. Namely the 3000G which will utilise their 7nm technology.


At this point, we were not expecting much else from AMD until next year. In terms of GPU’s, we know that AMD has absolutely nothing planned for release until Summer 2019. Given how amazing the Nvidia 20XX cards seem to be though,  it seems that AMD is in even more graphics card difficulties. If the 3000G processors are anything like the 2000G though, we stand to at least credit AMD for a step in the right direction.

Raven Ridge

It’s understood that AMD will be referring to the new APU designs as ‘Raven Ridge’, beyond that though, details are a little scarce. It will be interesting to see how they compare to the 2000G range which we still believe is an excellent entry level APU for those who want to build a games PC on limited funds.

We don’t have a firm release date as of yet but rest assured, we’ll be checking them out!

    I think the original source has added 2+2 and got 5.

    What AMD have said at HotChips suggests that there will be a new APU later this year. But they didn’t say 7nm. I expect a 12nm respin of Raven Ridge from the 14nm original, which will save a little power, and/or maybe add a little performance through slightly higher clocks.

    However, if it is a 7nm chip, then it will be fairly small (over 50% smaller), and it would be ideal for laptops because the power usage should drop massively. It might even be worth it for AMD to do Raven Ridge on 7nm, without Zen 2, just to get it out earlier, especially if there is a major contract for doing it. It would also be a very good way to learn these new processes.

    The small die size means yields should be okay even on a new process.

    TSMC or GF? Likely TSMC if it is this year.

    I have a 2400g 3.9 GHz at 1.44v, 3400mhz at 16cl, 1500ghz GPU. It performs well, I ditched my a10-5800, r7 370 with a 2% performance decrease on graphics, and a 250% increase on processing power. I’m waiting for the next apus. I have to say I’m surprised with how great it is and can push even the newest games at 21:9 1080p (sometimes only on medium). It is amds only graphics with full vp9 support. I would like to see medium sized affordable Vegas. But then again nvidia seems to be dominating the graphics market. But either way its possible to ditch your graphics card with these, it is the newest amd graphics card. I hope this rumor is true. Maybe they could squeeze 20cu’s without hbm and build a infinity fabric that I can push to 4000mhz. I could probably get at least RX 470 performance without the power overhead of adding a graphics card.
