AMD Zen Athlon Pro 200GE APU Leak
Written by: psychoman - 21:06 Sep-05-2018

There has been a leak that AMD is planning to release a entry level APU based on the Zen architecture on the AM4 platform with 2x Zen cores and 4x threads clocked at 3.2Ghz with 512kb L2 cache per core and 4MB L3 cache, along with a iGPU with 192 Stream Processors(3 cores) for 55$/47 euro to compete with Intel's Pentium G CPUs.
This is the first Athlon named APU. Along with a micro/mini ITX board for 35-45$ and some 4GB RAM for 35$ it can make for a great cheap HTPC, it will probably be 15-35W as well.

 

According to the slides, The Athlon APU will be up to 19% such as 3DMark11 faster than the Pentium G4560 in graphics + CPU workloads and only 3% slower in CPU only workloads like Cinebench mainly due to the lower clock speeds.

Initial stock will be 200,000 chips with 20,000 being made monthly a very solid amount for the type of product they are selling.

The prices of the g4560 are all over the place ranging from 70$ to 100$ USD and the new Pentium Gold CPUs are more expensive too, so if the leak is true and AMD releases this CPU, I expect Intel to cut the prices on their Pentium line-up as currently they are up to twice as expensive as this APU and usually with a worse iGPU.

I think these CPUs are good for a basic office or home PC with mild gaming on their own, but they are also really fun. This Athlon APU reminds me of the AM1 athlon 5350 that kabini tiny 4 core chip that is basically the Xbox one's CPU but with only 4 cores, it was really fun to watch it play BF4 with a gtx 750ti and maintain over 30fps in a 64 player TDM match and in other games, really fun chips to play around with, besides their awesome value for the HTPCs and office PCs, I'm tempted to make a mini PC out of this Athlon, but I have other priorities with university coming sadly :/
