Mysterious AMD Athlon 200GE Surfaces on SANDRA Database

The lads over at ComputerBase spotted the Athlon 200GE processor in the SANDRA database. Interestingly, this processor shares some similarities with the Ryzen 3 2200U. According to the SANDRA entry, the Athlon 200GE is a dual-core processor with four threads that boasts a 3.2 GHz clock rate. There's also 4 MB of L3 cache onboard which suggests that the Athlon 200GE is part of the Raven Ridge family. The integrated graphics core is based on the "Vega" graphics architecture, more specifically Vega 3. That means the Athlon 200GE will most likely come with three compute units and 192 shaders.

It shares similarities with the 2200U not the 2200G. 2200U has 2c/4t and 3 Vega CUs.
The 2200G has 4c/4t and a much beefier gpu

On a side note, I would like to see the pricing of this, considering the much more powerful 2200G will be $100.

AMD has gone the right route. As a strong supporter of the green/red team (this being AMD, with their old processors before the ATi purchase and now), I believe that the 200GE, might be a hell of an option for me to migrate to AM4. As someone, who works mostly on a laptop, my old "Kuma" based Athlon X2 7550 is still running as my desktop and if I decide to replace it, it will be with another AMD chip, and most likely, a cheap APU based system.

Might prove to be a good steambox/emulator arcade/console replacement/htpc...

Yeah! That would be a great use for this APU, it would be compatible, stable (when not paired with a potato board), and efficient.

The GPU is very weak , we are talking mobile SoC levels of performance. I don't know , I don't see why they would bother.

Memory prices alone just makes this a bit of a laugh, as the memory is 50% of the cost and cpu is just 20% so what is 3% on the price to get a 2x in performance.
It's a bit premature to get into conclusions but the 2200g seems pretty darn good at the moment and is the lowest I'd go with todays memory prices but if those change the lowest threshold for cpu price goes down substantially.

I need a new cpu\mobo combo for one of my esx hosts as it's still on a 1055T and a cheap quadcore would be a 2x perf upgrade.

I think the 2400g is more suited to that.

Motherboards (all b350) is good, I bought the cheapest b350 I could find at launch just as a placeholder and I haven't found a reason to change it to my surprise.
A320 is classified as potato boards as you would be limited on memory speeds unlike b350's
3200 is quite a big jump in performance for igp solutions:)

Ok, im going by power use and overall performance/price margin. These cost less than a Ryzen because they are Athlon (budget parts liked Duron then)

Can low power Ryzen be used for some powerful tablets that can run some Steam games? If AMD can make some 5W chips that would be great.

In this territory qualcomm would absolutely destroy them with a chip like the SD845

Wait, I see something here... If AMD provides a strong mobile contender to the barely used Atom, yet cheaper, it would sell, even though MediaTek and Qualcomm, have a huge market share.

Did I miss something or did Steam started running on ARM?

I don't know how strong a SD845 is, besides the non x86 architecture. I have a tablet with Intel Core M (Broadwell) instead of a wimpy Atom and it's pretty snappy, near desktop experience except the IGPU part, it struggles a lot.
