AMD’s 7nm Ryzen 3rd Gen series processor name is mainly for the Ryzen 5/7/9 series. The lowest pricing would be of the Ryzen 5 3600. That too would be around $199. The 12 core, 16 core Ryzen 9 models would have an asking price of $580~$600 to $870~$1000. The price point and positioning are obviously high-end, at least in the mid-to-high-end market for these products. In addition, the current 7nm Ryzen processor (codename Matisse) does not have an APU model yet. Right now the low-end users can only wait for a new generation of Ryzen 3rd Gen series APU. But the latter won’t be getting the 7nm process. These were upgraded to the 12nm Zen+ architecture and codenamed Picasso. Now AMD Athlon 320GE and 300GE key details have leaked online, read on for more details!
AMD Athlon 320GE and 300GE Lineup details
The most entry-level products are the Athlon series. Last year’s main products from that lineup were Athlon 200GE/220GE/240GE. This year, these products will also have new product upgrades. The CPU core will be upgraded to the 12nm Zen+ architecture. The GPU architecture is rumoured to be a large upgrade. It’s expected to jump to Vega 9 directly from Vega 3. But the GPU’s leaks aren’t credible yet. It is hard to imagine that the GPU would get such a huge upgrade!
The Athlon 300 series was replaced by the Athlon 200 series. Earlier, popular hardware leaker @TUM_APISAK revealed the frequency of the Athlon 300GE and Athlon 320GE, which were respectively increased to 3.4GHz and 3.5GHz on twitter. These frequencies were 200MHz and 100MHz higher than the previous lineup of products.
In the BIOS upgrade instructions of a motherboard manufacturer, the frequencies of the Athlon 300GE and Athlon 320GE have also been confirmed now. It would really be 3.4 GHz and 3.5 GHz, and the cache memory is expected to be 1MB. The TDP for these processors is expected to be 35W. This would make these quite power efficient and great for ultra cheap budget builds.
The current price of Athlon 300GE and Athlon 320GE processors has not been announced yet and it’s expected to be consistent with current products unless the GPU specifications get a really huge bump.
