AMD now offers Ryzen 5000 processors with integrated GPUs, but you can’t buy them just yet

AMD has announced a new version of its Ryzen 5000 desktop processors – the Ryzen 5000 G series, which (like AMD’s previous G-series offerings) adds an integrated GPU to the company’s existing Ryzen processors.

The company is launching six new APUs today. There are three 65W chips for more powerful machines – an eight-core Ryzen 7 5700G model, a six-core Ryzen 5 5600G and a quad-core Ryzen 3 5300G – along with a trio of 35W GE chips with slightly less power and thermal main chamber. And just like their GPU-less counterparts, the new chips use AMD’s 7nm process and feature the Zen 3 architecture.

The integrated GPUs here are nothing to write home about: they are based on AMD’s legacy Vega platform rather than the newer RDNA / Navi process used in the latest Radeon GPUs. But they look capable enough for mid-range gaming, especially if you’re only interested in playing less demanding games like Overwatch Rocket League, or Fortnite

For starters, the new chips will only be available as part of pre-built OEM systems – similar to AMD’s Ryzen 4000 APUs – but the company promises it will offer the chips directly to customers who want to use them in their own system this time around. own custom machines sometime later this year.
