The AMD Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G desktop APUs are finally available to purchase, albeit for Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X prices

AMD has released the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G for public consumption, months after the company launched the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X. Despite being based on Cezanne cores, AMD has priced the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G almost on par with their Vermeer-based siblings.

AMD has duly delivered on its promise to launch the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G, two desktop APUs based on its Zen 3 architecture. It is worth pointing out that even though the pair share an architecture with the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X, they feature different cores. While the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X utilise Vermeer cores, the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G use Cezanne cores, the same ones that AMD uses in its Ryzen 5000 mobile APUs.

AMD states that the Ryzen 5 5600G should cost US$259, with the Ryzen 7 5700G supposedly coming in at US$359. However, the processors are already out of stock in many markets, including the Eurozone and the UK. The pair are already available on eBay though, and for not that much of a mark-up.

Regardless, AMD has priced these Cezanne APUs almost on par with their Vermeer equivalents. Moreover, you could pick up a Ryzen 5 3600X for a lot less than the Ryzen 5 5600G; the same goes for the Ryzen 7 3700X too. Nonetheless, the integrated GPUs within the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G make them good options for PC builders who do not need dedicated GPUs and those who currently cannot get their hands on one.

Additionally, the Radeon RX Vega 8 is powerful enough to play older and less demanding titles at 1080p too, such as in FIFA 21, Overwatch or Rocket League. Presumably, these 65 W desktop APUs can push their integrated GPUs further than their laptop counterparts, too.
