The new Ryzen 5000G series of processors could be a good compromise for building a gaming PC in 2021, avoiding the lack of stocks of dedicated graphics accelerators, or the exaggerated prices at which they are sold.
Giving hope to PC gaming enthusiasts with a not very big budget, AMD promises a level of performance 35% -80% higher than the alternative Intel Core i7-10700, to be obtained in applications for productivity, creativity and benchmarks. On the subject of games, AMD promises a playable framerate (minimum 30 fps) in demanding titles such as Aassin’s Creed Odyssey, Civilization VI and Metro Exodus.
The processors in question are Ryzen 3 4-core models, Ryzen 5 6-core and Ryzen 7 8-core:
Ryzen 3 5300G – quad-core 4GHz base frequency and a TDP consumption of 65W
Ryzen 3 5300GE – quad-core 3.6GHz base frequency and a TDP consumption of 35W
Ryzen 5 5600GE – hexa-core 3.4GHz base frequency and a TDP consumption of 35W
Ryzen 5 5600G – hexa-core 3.9GHz base frequency and a TDP consumption of 65W
Ryzen 7 5700GE – 3.2GHz octa-core base frequency and a TDP consumption of 35W
Ryzen 7 5700G – octa-core 3.8GHz base frequency and a TDP consumption of 65W
The bad news is that the new Ryzen 5000G processors with integrated GPU are only available to OEM integrators, which means that they can be obtained by end consumers only by ordering a pre-assembled PC system.
