The first Ryzen processors AMD launched for desktop computers last year were just CPUs. If you wanted a graphics processor then you needed to buy a separate graphics card.

Eventually the company started offering some Ryzen chips with Radeon Vega graphics built-in, first for laptops, and then for desktops.

Now the company is expanding its desktop chip family with new, lower-power options. Meet the 35 watt Ryzen 3 2200GE and Ryzen 5 2400GE.

These new chips (which were first leaked more than two months ago) basically lower-power versions of the 65 watt Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G chips that launched earlier this year. They have the same basic CPU and GPU architecture and the same number of cores. But the new models have lower clock speeds and lower TDP values, which could make them better options for folks willing to trade a little performance for energy savings.

The new chips might be more suitable for fanless desktops, for instance.

Here’s an overview of the new chips and how they compare to their more power-hungry siblings:

ChipCores/ThreadsBase/Boost speedGPUGPU speedTDP
Ryzen 5 2400GE4 / 83.2 GHz / 3.6 GHzVega 111250 MHz35W
Ryzen 5 2400G4 / 83.6 GHz / 3.9 GHzVega 111250 MHz65W
Ryzen 3 2200GE4 / 43.2 GHz / 3.6 GHzVega 81100 MHz35W
Ryzen 3 2200G4 / 43.5 GHz / 3.7 GHzVega 81100 MHz65W

Both new chips are 14nm processors with 384KB of L1 cache, 2MB of L2 cache, and 4MB of L3 cache. They support DDR4-2933 MHz memory and they support AMD’s Socket AM4 platform.

The new chips are also unlocked, which means that folks who want to overclock them may be able to get better performance… at the cost of energy efficiency.

Prices for the new chips haven’t been announced yet, but you can buy the 65W Ryzen 3 2200G for about $100, while the Ryzen 5 2400G goes for about $163.

  1. It’s good to see, they achievement lower TDP by cutting CPU frequences part, not GPU.
    BTW, their iGPU tend to be crazy hot under full load. So, cautious user will underclock their iGPU anyway…

    1. Are you saying the APUs under graphical load goes outside of their rated TDP? Or maybe the cooling shipped with the APUs (at least of socketed APUs) are not capable of cooling the supposedly matching APU? Or the APUs just get subjectively hot but still within spec (ie. no thermal throttling)?

      1. I don’t said that.
        May be stock cooling is weak, but it’s enough to keep CPU part cold enough while it’s loaded up to 100%. May be they just don’t test it with GPU load?
        I don’t think 100C it’s good temp for any electronics, with or without thermal throttling (yes, 100C with locked 1200MHz achievable with stock cooling without throttling)
