AMD is not going to let Intel steal the spotlight with its new Alder Lake-based Core i3 CPUs,
Instead, AMD is apparently preparing to counter with new Renior-X Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 chips, which might make our list of the Best CPUs for Gaming on a Budget.
These processors are supposed to be Ryzen 4000G updates, however they lack integrated graphics.
The exact release date is uncertain at this time, but if AMD wants to compete with Intel, we predict it to happen around early or mid-2022.
We don’t have any official specifics on the new Ryzen 4000 components, but the codename Renior-X suggests that this might be a Zen 2 upgrade.
This suggests that Zen 2 quad-core processors with extremely high core frequencies may be released in order to compete with the upcoming Alder Lake Core i3s.
If the reports are accurate, we can anticipate the future Renior-X Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 models to have the identical core configurations as the current Renior-X Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 models.
Owing to the revised Zen 2 architecture, AMD may be able to add additional cache to the CPUs
It provide the chips core frequencies equivalent to the Ryzen 5 5600X due to the lack of integrated graphics.
AMD’s return to the entry-level market is somewhat surprising; the firm has recently paid little attention to the sub-$150 price range.
The Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X are the only AMD products that represent the entry-level market right now, aside from heavily discounted Zen+ components. Even these CPUs, though, are hard to come by, especially given the current CPU scarcity.
If AMD does ship a Ryzen 4000 series device without integrated graphics next year, it will be the first time in over a year that the firm has returned to the entry-level market.
Even still, instead of AMD’s cutting-edge Zen 3 design, which launched over a year ago, these chips will be repurposed from AMD’s older Zen 2 architecture.
We believe AMD is doing this to guarantee that their Zen 3 silicon is used in current CPU manufacture, in order to reduce costs and improve efficiency.
This is especially true given how stressed TSMC is right now, striving to provide as much silicon as possible to all of its partners.
For the time being, we don’t know how much these chips will cost. To compete in the entry-level market, however, these new Ryzen CPUs will have to be priced around $200.
