Biostar has confirmed up to 60% of the Ryzen 4000G series, AMD's range of desktop Renoir APUs. Soon to be available with 35 W and 65 W TDPs, there may be up to four editions of the Ryzen 3 4200, Ryzen 5 4400 and Ryzen 7 4700. All APUs are compatible with Socket AM4 socket.

Biostar has confirmed the existence of seven Ryzen 4000 Renoir desktop APUs. Spotted by @KOMACHI_ENSAKA and Videocardz  Biostar listed the APUs on a RACING B550GTQ motherboard support page. The company has since removed references to the APUs, but you can view a screenshot below of the processors that Biostar listed. You can also view the list in an xlsx export that we downloaded before Biostar edited it.

Among the processors listed is the Ryzen 7 4700G, an image of which appeared online last week. The OPN code "100-000000146" from that image matches the code listed by Biostar and the one reported by igor'sLAB. Additionally, Biostar confirmed six other OPN codes on the list leaked by igor'sLAB and the names to which they relate:

  • 100-000000143 - Ryzen 5 4400G
  • 100-000000145 - Ryzen 7 PRO 4700G
  • 100-000000148 - Ryzen 3 PRO 4200G
  • 100-000000149 - Ryzen 7 4700GE
  • 100-000000150 - Ryzen 5 4400GE
  • 100-000000151 - Ryzen 3 4200GE

According to the Biostar data, AMD is planning to release 35 W and 65 W desktop versions of Renoir APUs. These carry the suffixes of "GE" and "G" respectively, while there are also "PRO" versions of the 65 W G-series. The Ryzen 4000G series does not end with these seven APUs, either. Based on the leak published by igor'sLAB, there are between twelve and twenty-two Ryzen 4000G APUs.

It is worth stressing that AMD may choose not to release all these processors. However, it seems that OPN codes "100-000000143" to "100-000000154" denote four versions of three APUs. Biostar did not list a Ryzen 3 4200G or a Ryzen 5 PRO 4400G, but it should follow that AMD has developed these APUs if it has OPN codes for corresponding PRO G and GE versions. We suspect that the Ryzen 3 4200G is the "100-000000144" or "100-000000154" referenced by igor'sLAB, while the Ryzen 5 PRO 4400G could be the "100-000000147" or "100-000000153".

Assuming that the Ryzen 3 4200G and Ryzen 5 PRO 4400G relate to two of those four OPN codes, that leaves two spares along with the "100-000000152". According to the leak published by igor'sLAB, the "100-000000152" is another eight APU, which would make it another Ryzen 7 SKU. 

  • 100-000000143 - Ryzen 5 4400G
  • 100-000000144 - Ryzen 3 4200G ? (possibly another quad-core APU)
  • 100-000000145 - Ryzen 7 PRO 4700G
  • 100-000000146 - Ryzen 7 4700G
  • 100-000000147 - Ryzen 5 PRO 4400G ? (possibly another hexa-core APU) 
  • 100-000000148 - Ryzen 3 PRO 4200G
  • 100-000000149 - Ryzen 7 4700GE
  • 100-000000150 - Ryzen 5 4400GE
  • 100-000000151 - Ryzen 3 4200GE
  • 100-000000152 - ? (possibly another octa-core APU)
  • 100-000000153 - Ryzen 5 PRO 4400G ? (possibly another hexa-core APU)
  • 100-000000154 - Ryzen 3 4200G ? (possibly another quad-core APU)

Since these remaining OPN codes refer to processors with multiple core counts, they are not the same APU. Hence, it would seem that AMD has not only developed "G", "PRO G" and "GE" edition of desktop Renoir APUs, but also a fourth edition.

AMD is expected to announce these Renoir desktop APUs before it releases Zen 3-based Ryzen 4000 processors. There is no word on a release date for these Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 4000G APUs, though.
