AMD has launched two more entries to its Athlon range: the 220GE and the 240GE. Both processors come with Radeon Vega 3 graphics and offer base clocks of 3.4 GHz (220GE) and 3.5 GHz (240GE), respectively. The 220GE has been priced at US$65 and the 240GE has a price of US$75. 

For reference, the athlon 200GE has a base clock of 3.2ghz, so the new chips dont have a big improvement. 200GE should be 55$.

Apart from the differences in base clock speeds and prices, there is little else separating the trio. All of them feature three Radeon Vega 3 graphics compute units and all have a TDP of 35 W. Each processor has two CPU cores and four threads. AMD claims that the new releases will offer “reliable computing” for “out-of-the-box 720p gaming.”

They all have the same gpus, and 2c/4t.

MY THOUGHTS

The athlon 200ge can be overclocked with the newest bios on some motherboards using the AGESA 1.0.0.6 firmware, mostly msi, asus boards, and the 200ge can be overclocked over 3.5ghz, some have hit 3.9ghz. But we know that AMD didnt intend to make these overclockable, so the overclocking capability may vanish with future bios updates. If the bios updates make the athlon overclocking available on most motherboards, then these chips need to prove their value pretty hard, otherwise 10$ for +0.2ghz seems fine to me.

I only see your reply if you @ me.

No

 

They are only overclockable using certain BIOSes that accidentaly enabled ovetclocking. This happened to MSI BIOes and certain other boards.

Well.... quite pointless products just to try squeezing a little bit of $ with the slightly more purer silicon here and there... Intel does the same pointless thing with their Pentium line up so nothing new.

Filling every possible gap, but these are quite nice for very entry machines though.

These are for long-tail OEM systems. We got the extra SKUs probably because the binning resulted in enough. These should be the last Zen1 SKUs, unless there is some semi-custom or oddball Epyc parts that get rolled out for a small niche. Though considering a new SKU for an Excavator APU showed up just the other week, we'll be seeing odd little results for years to come.

 

That said, once DDR4 prices finally get all the way back down, this + a cheap motherboard + a little ram and like a 20USD/128 Gb SSD are going to make some ridiculously useful HTPC systems.

From 2012 to 2016 AMD was really good at this.

If there is one thing the AMD CPU division are experts at that is getting blood out of a stone bulldozer.

It’s important to piledrive that point home.

And with that experience they do have and the position AMD are in now they are poised to steamroller over Intel.

Intel will need to excavate the best performance in their chips to compete with AMD

And with that last pun we have hit full Zen state.

Are these new cpu's that are downgraded from the Ryzen lineup. Because I remember the Athlon cpu's and they sucked bad, I should have went Intel back then.

Kind of. These are 2c 4t chips instead of full 4 cores, and the igpu is vega 3 instead of  vega 8 in 2200g and vega 11 in 2400g.

But these are still very competent parts, and the 200GE price still surprises me.

I only see your reply if you @ me.
