Ryzen 5 8600G Specifications Leak – Zen 4 CPU and RDNA 3 graphics!

AMD’s Ryzen 5 8600G will deliver a huge boost in integrated graphics performance

At CES 2024, we expect AMD to introduce a new lineup of AM5 processors called the Ryzen 8000G series. These new processors will feature Zen 4 CPU cores and RDNA 3 graphics and will reportedly feature Phoenix Point or Hawk Point silicon. Today, specifications for AMD’s Ryzen 5 8600G have leaked, showcasing significant areas of improvement for AMD’s newest processors.

At this time, it is unknown if AMD will be launching their new Ryzen 8000G series processors with active Neural Processing Units (NPUs). These are dedicated AI processors that are based on AMD’s XDNA NPU architecture. If AMD plans to push AI heavily in 2024, they should release these processors with active NPUs. If not, at least users of these new 8000G processors will benefit of AMD’s Zen 4 and RDNA 3 architectures.

AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600G features a Zen 3 processor and a Radeon Vega integrated graphics solution. The Ryzen 8000G series will feature Zen 4 CPU cores and RDNA 3 based integrated graphics. GPU-wise, this is a huge architectural advancement, as Vega is a pre-RDNA architecture. With their latest CPUs, AMD are skipping RDNA 1 and RDNA 2 and have moved straight to RDNA 3.

Leaked Ryzen 5 8600G Specifications

Aside from AMD’s architectural advancements, AMD have significantly increased the clock speeds of their new Ryzen 8600G CPU. Base/boost CPU clock speeds have increased by 450 MHz and 600 MHz respectively, and GPU clock speeds have increased by 900 MHz. AMD has increased their GPU’s CU count from 7 to 8 (a 14.3% increase). GPU clock speeds have also increased by 47.3%, and the move from Vega to RDNA 3 should deliver huge performance gains.
