Speaking of the Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G processors with integrated Vega graphics, AMD did not say a word about their 35-watt counterparts, although rumors about the economical desktop Raven Ridge for the AM4 platform will soon be two months old. The upcoming release of the Ryzen 3 2200GE and Ryzen 5 2400GE models with a little heat can be said with complete confidence, as motherboard manufacturers ASUS and ASRock already mention them on the pages of their sites.

 The first information on 35-W versions of Raven Ridge appeared in December

The first information about 35-W versions of APU Raven Ridge appeared in December

ASRock Company introduced the first Ryzen chips with the GE suffix to the general list of processors supported by ASRock AM4 motherboards. However, subsequently the corresponding lines were removed from the list. According to preliminary data, the frequency of the APU Ryzen 3 2200GE and Ryzen 5 2400GE is the same – 3.2 GHz. In this case, the Ryzen 5 family model, unlike the “younger sister”, supports the technology of multithreaded data processing (SMT) and has a more efficient graphics subsystem Radeon RX Vega. A 35 W thermal package should allow enthusiasts to build fanless PCs on the Ryzen 3 2200GE and Ryzen 5 2400GE bases.

ASUS provided the correct characteristics of the older APU, but the younger specification was confused with that of the 65-watt Ryzen 3 2200G. In addition, it should be noted that none of the Raven Ridge processors has 6 MB of cache in the third level.

 The list of processors supported by the ASUS Prime B350M-A

The list of processors supported by the ASUS Prime B350M-A [19659004] All four 14-nm AM4 chips with integrated graphics are associated with the same UEFI firmware version 3203. Accordingly, we can assume that the official announcement of Ryzen 3 2200GE and Ryzen 5 2400GE is not far off.

It is curious that according to the approved a year ago the nomenclature of the economical APU Raven Ridge was supposed to get the suffix “GT”, where e “G” stands for the graphic core, and “T” stands for reduced heat release. Most likely, it was decided to refuse from GT, so as not to mislead potential buyers, because this suffix is ​​usually associated with more productive, rather than slower relative solutions.

The cost of the AMD Ryzen 3 2200GE and Ryzen 5 2400GE processors will either equal to Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G ($ 99 and $ 169 respectively), or slightly lower.
