AMD’s Athlon CPUs Finally Get Some Zen 2 Love


One among AMD’s but unreleased Athlon Gold 4000G sequence (Renoir) APUs, the Athlon Gold Professional 4150GE, has seemed at on-line store AliExpress. As (*2*)Komachi_Ensaka tweeted, the brand new chip is to be had for $118.29 — discounted from $168.99. Sadly, the record presentations most effective one CPU stays in inventory, so it would not be sudden to look this record disappear as soon as somebody alternatives it up.

The vendor notes that the CPUs are used and now not logo new merchandise. The chips additionally come from more than a few places, together with China, Malaysia, Vietnam, Costa Rica, and extra. If we needed to wager from this knowledge, the vendor has almost certainly got engineering samples of the product.


The vendor additionally launched a CPU-Z snapshot, showcasing essential specs of the CPU. The CPU seems to have a base clock of 3.3 GHz and 4MB of L3 cache, together with four cores and four threads.

This record is tremendous fascinating as a result of AMD has now not formally introduced any new Athlon Gold CPUs with the 4000G sequence branding simply but. There have additionally been no rumors a couple of new Athlon refresh from AMD, making this new record very intriguing to look.

The Athlon Gold 3000G lineup these days is composed of the quad-core (4 threaded) Athlon Gold 3150 GE, 3150G, and dual-core 3050 GE. As well as, Professional equivalents, such because the Athlon Gold Professional 3150G, Professional 3150GE, and Professional 3125GE, also are to be had. Alternatively, those portions are old-fashioned as they make the most of Zen+ cores and introduced over a 12 months in the past. So it is sensible that AMD can be refreshing the Athlon sequence underneath the 4000G sequence branding to stay aggressive within the entry-level section. As well as, Intel has ready new Alder Lake-based Pentiums and Celerons that can release somewhat quickly.

Since this new Athlon Gold Professional 4150GE makes use of the 4000G sequence branding, we suspect that this chip options AMD’s extra fresh and far quicker Zen 2 cores. Sadly, we don’t have any concept or hints of when AMD will announce the Athlon Gold 4000G chips. The one different indication of AMD re-using its 4000G sequence branding in new CPUs is the rumors revolving round Renior-X, together with refreshed variations of the (*5*)Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X underneath the 4000G sequence lineup to fend off the drawing close Alder Lake’s Core i3 SKUs. Those new Athlon chips might be underneath that Renoir-X umbrella as neatly, however it is just a wild wager at this level.
