PC enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs and APUs. However, all we have got are leak and rumors. This time around another leak has emerged revealing the upcoming AMD Ryzen 3 3200G desktop APU.
The leak comes from a Chiphell user who posted images revealing that he/she has gotten hands on the desktop APU. As you can see in the image below, the user has delid the AMD Ryzen 3 3200G revealing the die size.
Furthermore, the user has revealed the specs for both AMD Ryzen 3200G and Ryzen 3400G. According to the leak, Ryzen 3 3200G features boost clock of 4.3 GHz, 4 Cores/4 Threads, 4 MB L3 Cache.
As for the Ryzen 3400G, the APU features 4 Cores/8 Threads, 4.25 GHz boost clock, and 4 MB of L3 cache. Both APUs feature an increase in boost clock compared to Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 2400G.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first images revealing both Ryzen 3 3200G and Ryzen 3400G. Jest recently another Chiphell user posted images of both APUs and claimed that he/she has 8 units.
According to the user, both APUs will launch the same day as AMD CEO’s Computex keynote which takes place on May 27, 2019. If these leaks are to be believed then AMD will launch its APUs is less than a week and hopefully its full lineup of 7nm Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs.
Speaking of AMD CPUs, the company has promised us world’s first 7nm CPUs. But, AMD seems to be in no mood of announcing them. However, leaks and rumors have revealed full specs and prices for Ryzen 3000 CPUs.
Aside from leaks, let’s talk about something that’s actually happened. Ryzen CPUs are giving Intel a run for its money and AMD continues to do so as again Ryzen has outsold Intel by 2:1.
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 continues to be the best-selling CPU for AMD. But the gap between the two closes in terms of revenue which is due to the fact that Intel CPUs cost way more than AMD CPUs.
AMD is also in the business of manufacturing APUs for game consoles. Both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are powered by AMD APUs and it seems like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Anaconda will also be powered by AMD APUs.
According to a recent leak, AMD Gonzalo APU will power both PS5 and next-gen Xbox.
Reportedly, the APU features 8-Cores and is a derivative of Zen micro-architecture. This would allow both PS5 and Xbox Anaconda to feature huge performance leaps over PS4 and Xbox One.
Interestingly, Sony has revealed specs for its upcoming PlayStation 5. According to Sony, PS5 APU is based on the 3rd gen 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture meaning next-gen Xbox will feature roughly the same specs.
Furthermore, the APU features Navi graphics capable of rendering real-time Ray Tracing. This is a huge deal considering RayTracing is only available for PC games and only Nvidia RTX 20 GPUs are capable of rendering it.
