Earlier generations of AMD Ryzen CPUs had been aimed on the mid-range market, which is the place they might typically outperform Intel’s choices in the identical worth vary. With 2020’s Zen 3 nonetheless, AMD focused their vary squarely on the large league of efficiency gaming CPUs. While this competitors was welcome, it has meant that till now we have now seen fewer Zen 3 choices on the lowest finish of the worth scale.
The 5300G, 5600G and 5700G APUs are meant to plug some gaps within the CPU vary, the place, in earlier generations, the ‘non-X’ SKUs can be discovered, so the Ryzen 3 5300G is available in proper on the entry-level with an MSRP of $150, the Ryzen 5 5600G (MSRP $259) is available in just under the Ryzen 5 5600X (MSRP $279) in energy and worth (basically taking the place of a 5600) and the Ryzen 7 5700G (MSRP $359) ought to come someplace between the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X (MSRP $449), taking the place of the non-existent 5700.
As you’ll be able to see within the beneath comparability desk, the 5600G has the identical variety of cores and threads (6/12) because the 5600X and the identical TDP (65W), however has half of the L3 cache (16MB as a substitute of 32MB) and a 0.2GHz slower Increase Clock Velocity, although clearly it has the benefit of coming with RX Vega 7 built-in graphics. Equally the 5700G APU has the identical variety of cores and threads because the Ryzen 7 5800X (8/16) however a decrease TDP of 65W in comparison with the 105W of the 5800X and a 0.1GHz slower enhance clock frequency. The L3 cache of the extra highly effective 5700G APU remains to be solely 16MB in comparison with the upper 32MB of the cheaper 5600X CPU – we’ll see how this impacts workstation efficiency in our benchmarks beneath.
The 5300G, 5600G and 5700G include all the advantages of the Zen 3 CPU structure in comparison with the older Zen 2 Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G APUs – as a consequence, the efficiency of each is considerably improved over the older generations in CPU heavy duties as we’ll see. It’s a completely different story for graphics efficiency nonetheless.
