AMD brings the processorsAthlon Of the new generation - with its latest processing cores and graphics accelerators in a minimalist configuration and at a very competitive price
Modern microprocessor AMD We offer a winning cost-benefit ratio at almost every price level in the market, and now it seems that the company's goal is to surprise us with even the most basic costs - with a model Athlon 200GE double the fresh cores.
We have already met Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G, Which were in fact the company's first integrated graphics core APUs in the era of Zen architecture, and now comes the official availability of an even more basic model that is very reminiscent of the Ryzen 3 2200U laptop - with a pair of physical processing cores (functioning as 4 cores Logics using SMT technology) that are integrated with the Vega 3 graphics core with 192 execution units and 4 MB of memory L3 level cache.
The Athlon 200GE will run at a base frequency of 3.2GHz, without the support of turbo frequencies at all, and should offer capabilities similar to those of Celeron processors and cost-effective Pentium processors Intel Have the same power envelope - 35 watts. The most basic level suitable for home or office computers for browsing or word processing and not much beyond that. The processor will not support the acceleration of its core frequency, but will include support for operation with Memories Dynamic, at least.
The consumer price of the first Athlon in the Zen era is 55 dollars, although not yet very simple Find it in practice in this cost - But when it's finally come, toAMD Should once again be a relative advantage over Intel Which offers thePentium Gold G5400T andPentium Gold G5500T at recommended prices of 64 USD and 75 USD respectively. It should be noted, however, that Intel also has the Celeron G4900T at a recommended price of only $ 42, for which the Red camp still has no direct answer.
AMD, for its part, plans to introduce another pair of models Athlon Modern under the 220GE and 240GE model names in the coming months - which will be slightly more expensive than the 200GE naturally, and will likely offer very similar features except for their practical workhorse. Is there a chance to see a sempron comeback for products for less than $ 50? We will continue to follow and update on this matter.
