AMD Launches their Athlon 220GE and 240GE Processors 

With the Zen architecture, AMD has created a product stack that reaches from the top of the CPU market all the way to the bottom, spanning from entry-level Athlon processors to Ryzen CPUs and APUs all the way to ultra-high-end Threadripper SKUs, offering between 2 and 32 cores at the time of writing. 

Earlier this year, AMD released their low-cost Athlon 200GE processor, offering Zen CPU cores with Radeon Vega graphics to deliver respectable performance levels and a TDP of 35W. With this CPU design, AMD set themselves up to power low-end office systems, home servers and other moderately powered devices. 

Now, AMD has taken their fight to Intel’s Pentium brand once again, offering higher-clocked variants of their Athlon 2X0GE series, offering increased clock speeds while providing the same TDP. These higher-end models will ship with increased prices, ranging from $55-75 as you move from the 200GE to the 240GE.

The Athlon 200GE, 220GE and 240GE all feature the same 35W TDP, Vega 3 graphics processor and the same Zen-powered CPU cores, making them all ideal for basic home systems. Below are the known specification of the new AMD Athlon series processors. Please note that AMD’s Athlon processors do not officially support overclocking, but some motherboard/BIOS combinations allow overclocking to take place.
