Entries pertaining to the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G have been spotted in the SiSoftware benchmark database. The new 'Picasso' Zen+ APUs are similar to their previous generation counterparts in most aspects save for slightly increased base and boost clocks. Also seen in the database is a reference to the B550 chipset that will supposedly succeed the current mid-range B450.

We've seen leaks aplenty about 7nm Zen2 'Matisse' 12-core and 16-core Ryzen 3000 chips based on the 7nm process but news regarding the APU side of things has been hard to come by save for some info about the Ryzen 3 3200G. Now, famed leakster TUM_APISAK has spotted entries for the Ryzen 5 3400G and the Ryzen 3 3200G on the SiSoftware database that reveals some important specs while also confirming the existence of the B550 chipset.

The Ryzen 5 3400G and the Ryzen 3 3200G continue to be based on the 12nm Zen+ architecture that AMD internally refers to as 'Picasso'. This means that 7nm APUs codenamed 'Renoir' will only be seen sometime in 2020. Here's a summary of what we know so far about the specs of upcoming Zen+ 'Picasso' APUs:

AMD Ryzen 3 2200GAMD Ryzen 3 3200GAMD Ryzen 5 2400GAMD Ryzen 5 3400G
Architecture14nm Zen12nm Zen+14nm Zen12nm Zen+
Cores/Threads4/44/44/84/8
Base/Boost Clocks (GHz)3.5/3.73.6/4.03.6/3.93.7/4.2
Cache (MB)4444
GraphicsVega 8?Vega 11?
GPU Clock (MHz)110012501250?
TDP (W)6565 (?)6565 (?)

From the above information, we see that there aren't any drastic changes to the Ryzen 3000 APUs apart from slight frequency boosts. The cores, threads, and cache configurations are expected to be carried over from the previous generation so the increased speeds might not actually translate into significantly improved real-world performance.

With respect to the integrated Radeon Vega graphics, Zen+ APUs would, in all probability, continue to sport the same Vega 8 and Vega 11 graphics with the Ryzen 3 3200G getting a GPU speed boost to 1,250 MHz. The exact GPU specs though, are still anybody's guess at this point.

In the same SiSoftware database entry, we also see the mention of a B550A4-EM motherboard from German OEM Medion. While we've seen quite some info leak regarding the flagship X570 chipset, there has been no news about the successor to the mid-range B450 chipset. The above entry sort of confirms that there will indeed be a B550 but we aren't sure at this point as to what additional features the new chipset brings to the table.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
