Entry-level AMD Athlon Gold PRO 4150GE shows up on Geekbench for the first time
It's been a while since we've seen AMD launch any entry-level processors. There have been some rumours about Renoir-X processors in the pipeline, which can take on the lower end of the Alder Lake stack. Meanwhile, the ultra-affordable AMD Athlon Gold PRO 4150GE was spotted on CPU-Z not too long ago. We now have yet another glimpse at the processor, this time around on Geekbench.
Benchleaks stumbled upon the AMD Athlon Gold PRO 4150GE on Geekbench. It managed to net a single-core score of 1,098 and a multi-core score of 3,728. The four-core/four-thread processor was clocked at 3.3 GHz and paired with 8 GB of 3,000 MT/s RAM. The performance is nothing to write home about, but the Athlon Gold PRO 4150GE is an APU tailor-made for basic compute tasks. Other specs include 35 W TDP and 4 MB of L2 cache and a boost clock of 3.8 GHz.
Furthermore, the "Pro" in the AMD Athlon Gold PRO 4150GE suggests that it will be an OEM only part, meaning that DIY PC builders will not be able to buy it, at least officially. AMD's silence on the matter doesn't help either, especially when budget builds are becoming rarer due to rising component costs. Just when AMD plans on unveiling the new Athlon processors remains to be seen.
