The Cezanne APUs were announced not long ago but only exclusive for OEM systems are now available in retail. Announced today at AMD’s Computex 2021 keynote, the Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G APU will be available from August 5 onwards at the price of $359 and $259 respectively.

|Base Clock (GHz)||3.9||3.8|
|Boost Clock (GHz)||4.4||4.6|
|Integrated GPU||Radeon Vega 7||Radeon Vega 8|
|GPU Boost Clock (GHz)||1.9||2.0|
Although not specifically mentioned, we can somewhat see that AMD is aiming at the 11th-gen Intel Core i5-11600K and i7-11700K based on the specifications of the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G.
Starting off with the mid-end tier, there’s the 6-core 12-threads Ryzen 5 5600G that comes with a boost clock and base clock of 4.4GHz and 3.9GHz respectively, and a total cache of 19MB, 3MB for L2 cache and 16MB for L3 cache. The graphics on the Ryzen 5 5600G is the Radeon Vega 7
Moving on to the high-end tier, we have the 8-core 16-thread Ryzen 7 5700G which features a 3.8GHz base clock and 4.6GHz boost clock. It has a 4MB L2 cache and 16MB L3 cache, which totals up to 20MB. As for the graphics, it’s packed with a more powerful Radeon Vega 8 capable of up to 2.0GHz on its boost clock.
Despite the obvious fact that AMD is still reserving its lower-end models such as the Ryzen 3 5300G and Ryzen 3 5300GE for the OEM systems, the decision of making the Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G available in retail is still a piece of great news for the gaming market, especially during the current on-going GPU shortage. If you’re looking forward to building yourself a decent gaming PC during this time, the Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G do seem pretty promising at the moment. Until then, we’ll just wait for its global availability later on August 5, 2021.
