AMD Dual-Core Quad-Thread Athlon 200GE with Vega graphics appears on SiSoftware database

Since the release of AMD's Ryzen CPU architecture, the company has focused on the high-performance segments of the market, offering quad-core CPUs and above until the release of Ryzen mobile, which only recently introduced a dual-core model in the form of the Ryzen 3 2200U.

Now it looks like AMD has plans to tap into the low-cost consumer PC market, with a CPU called the Athlon 200GE appearing on the SiSoftware database, listed as a desktop product with two cores, four threads, a clock speed of 3.2GHz and an integrated Vega graphics component. This product listing is from an upcoming Lenovo system, with the Athlon 200GE likely releasing as a cut-down version of AMD's Ryzen+Vega CPUs. 

The Athlon branding suggests that AMD does not want this product to be associated with Ryzen on the desktop market, likely due to its low specifications, though its Vega graphics component does point towards the use of a Ryzen Mobile/Ryzen+Vega component. The G likely signifies the inclusion of integrated graphics, just like the Ryzen 3 2200G and the Ryzen 5 2400G, though specifications-wise this product looks like a desktop version of the Ryzen 3 2200U mobile CPU.      

Below is a brief comparison between the Athlon 200GE and some of AMD's Ryzen+Vega products, where we have only included the specifications for the 200GE that are listed on the SiSoftware database, though we can assume that this is a 14nm product that can be used on an AM4 socket.

The Athlon 200GE could act as a competitor for Intel's Pentium series products, offering more than enough performance for general desktop applications. This product could bring AMD into the sub-£90 CPU market, giving them the opportunity to rival Intel across their whole desktop lineup.

Good for low end users. Problem is if it has no GPU on it then that is another £60 expense before it even fires up.

Also, 2/4 is simply not enough any more. I watched a video recently where 4 core I5s were struggling like F and the 1600 kicked their ass.

Edit. Then I noticed Vega. That's great Quote

maybe good for low end users but will certainly add to the plethora of so called cheap "gaming rigs" that flood the market using APUsQuote

I can see eBay being flooded with "Gaming PCs" using this CPU, the same way I still see a lot being sold with an FX 4100

I also agree that 2C/4T isn't enough anymore, but I would say this is most likely being aimed at ultra low power devices like Thin Clients, All in Ones and generally bottom barrel web surfing PCs. Will be nice to see prices come down again, seeing Celeron based units at nearly £300 is the reason I always buy second handQuote
