AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series APU for desktops has been made official yesterday.

AMD Ryzen 5000 G Series

Gaming enthusiasts or high-performance users should pay less heed to APUs since they are mostly targeting users with fewer budgets in their pockets or just doing light tasks in general. The integrated Radeon Vega GPU is not bad either but with RDNA becoming more mainstream, I do think that they are not applying that to keep these chips under a certain price threshold. But with is always about cost-performance ratio, it is just a matter of time. The same reason may be justifiable for the continuous usage of PCIe 3.0 for this generation too.

As a side note, only the GE chips will be available individually for now due to the G chips being OEM-exclusive at the moment. But with how pre-built machines seem to be the go-to solution nowadays due to the global chip shortage screwing up the DIY market, it might be wise to seek out one of the rigs if all you do is light casual gaming.
