Discount Details

The Ryzen 7 8700G sees its price drop from $329 to $299, a reduction of $30. This processor has 8 physical cores and 16 threads, and is equipped with an iGPU based on the RDNA 3 architecture with 12 computing units (CU). In addition, it integrates an NPU offering a modest power of 16 TOPs, making it one of the first desktop processors to include this functionality.

The Ryzen 5 8600G is now priced at $199, down from its launch price of $229. It offers 6 cores and 12 threads, with an 8 CUs iGPU. This model also features the NPU of 16 TOPs.

The Ryzen 5 8500G is available for $159, down from $179 previously, a reduction of $20. Unlike higher models, it does not have NPU. Based on the “Phoenix 2” architecture, it combines two “Zen 4” cores and four “Zen 4c” cores, totaling 6 physical cores and 12 threads. Its RDNA 3 iGPU only has 4 CUs.

What should we remember?

All of these processors leverage Zen 4 cores, ensuring solid performance for a variety of tasks. However, a notable limitation is the lack of support for PCIe Gen 5, restricting the speeds of newer SSDs to a maximum of 7 GB/s.
