    First AMD Ryzen 4000 Pro G Series reviews begin to appear

    A Taiwanese reviewer has already tested the Ryzen Pro 4750G, 4650G, and 4350G.

    Damn, that's some pretty serious hardware if it's essentially a 3700X with a RX550 built into it. I kinda want a 4650G or 4750G now to refresh my NAS + media server build.

    What's the situation with video hardware decoding for these APU's?

    Will these have the standard Vega fixed function units? Or is it a cut down version due to silicon space issues?

    Most likely yes as part of the PR push they are touting Adobe Premiere Pro's support for AMD's hardware video encoding.

    These will have improved Vegas FF units . Seem to be no shortage in thailand, 36 boxes @ 300 per box ? estimate

    Just imagine if they could have added 50% more CU/shaders, more onchip cache (or eDRAM) and double the TDP!
    But the OEM's didn't care because it's for basic SFF office desktops.
    More GPU would need more RAM bandwidth so in the meantime they are limited.
    They are leaving room for improvement for next year.

    Already seen rumours of the 5000 series, waiting for the benchmark comparisons for the new stuff vs the 3400g specifically as that’s what I was looking at.

    So far it looks like AMD didn't mess up the caching when going from chiplet back to single die, and memory overclocking seems solid so they got that bit right as well. Seems a solid upgrade on the 3000 series parts.

    The real unknown right now is where the price will end up. Fingers crossed wth the low end now being the same 4 core configuration they used to have for high end, those 4 core parts will be cheap.

    Problem is that the one have die so far. And it's 156mm² of 7nm so larger than two chiplets and presumably with significantly worse yields.

    The defect rate of the larger die is probably the only reason to offer quad core. Certainly doesn't make sense to disable 4 cores just to have something to sell.

    If AMD's volume supported it, they really should make a native quad core mask but then presumably that would only make sense if such a product was 4C and maybe 3-5 CU. So significantly slower than 3400G in graphics.

    At some point that will make sense, but for now with 7nm seemingly still tight on supply it makes sense to kick the quad core low end desktop out to old 12nm wafers. AMD now doing even Athlons as quad core suggests the yields on those old parts are doing well, and I would guess most desktop APU customers are office users for whom a 3400G is already overkill.
