AMD’s products for entry-level mainstream DIY users include Ryzen 3 or the second-generation Ryzen APU i.e. the Ryzen 3 3200G or Ryzen 5 3400G. Of course, the even cheaper APUs, including the Athlon 200GE/220GE/240GE, are even more popular.
Popular hardware leaker APISAK freshly leaked an AMD 3400GE processor on twitter. It seems to belong to the Ryzen APU camp. And not Athlon, one because the model number is 0, the second is that the Athlon models don’t usually come with boost clocks.

AMD Ryzen 5 3400GE specifications and other details
In terms of specifications, the AMD Ryzen 3400GE has a base frequency of 3.3 GHz and a boost frequency of 4.0 GHz. The internal GPU has a frequency of 1300 MHz.
However, the “E” suffix is ??generally representative of the energy-saving version in the AMD product line. For example, the Ryzen 5 2600E and the Ryzen 7 2700E are both 45W products. From this point of view, the 3400GE is much like an energy-saving version of the AMD APU.
The second generation of Ryzen APU was released in this year’s E3 exhibition, in which Ryzen 5 3400G was showcased as 4 cores and 8 threads (12nm Zen+). The base frequency for that CPU is 3.7GHz. It accelerates up to 4.2 GHz and has a built-in Vega 11 graphics card (up to 1400MHz). It supports DDR4 -2933 memory. The TDP for this processor is 65W. But it comes with a 95W Wraith Spire radiator cooler. The advanced features include brazing heat dissipation, PBO automatic overclocking etc. The suggested retail price for this CPU is $149 and it will be available on July 7.
As for the total amount of power reduction, the TDP of the 3400GE is expected to be 35~45W. This makes it a really power efficient APU. So guys what do you think?
Would the Ryzen 5 3400GE be something worth investing in? Would this CPU sell like hotcakes when it finally drops in the market? Do let us know what you think in the comments section below!
