AMD Launches 12 Desktop Renoir Ryzen 4000G Series APUs: But You Can’t Buy Them

See the original posting on Anandtech

Today AMD is finally lifting the lid on its long-awaited desktop Zen2 based APU family. Using the same silicon as in the Ryzen Mobile 4000 family, AMD is pumping it up into 35 W and 65 models in the same AM4 platform that is in use today. There has been strong demand from PC builders to release these chips, which were on the topics of forum conversation all the way back at CES. There’s only one downside to these new processors: you can’t buy them. AMD states that the initial release of Ryzen 4000G hardware is for OEMs like Dell and HP only.
