Low-Power Variants of the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G are on the Way

Over the last couple of days, motherboard manufacturers have been scrambling to release BIOS updates for their AM4 motherboards to accommodate the new Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G processors. From the information we gathered from ASRock's AM4 CPU support list, AMD is secretly preparing two more Ryzen "Raven Ridge" APUs. The unannounced models are the Ryzen 5 2400GE and Ryzen 3 2200GE. Judging from their technical specifications, the aforementioned processors are the low-power variants to the two models that were released today. The "GE" variants come with a lower 3.2 GHz base clock and 35W TDP. As of yet, AMD hasn't officially announced the pricing or release date.

Makes a lot of sense, would probably fit HTPCs and the like better. With intel, in practice, the lower TDP variants barely make a difference at all, hopefully it won't be the case with AMD's low TDP variants

Makes you wonder if these will have an unlocked multiplier like the rest of the Ryzen CPU stack, be a compelling option for toying around with.

Im using my 2200G with 350W PSU (85%). Its not a problem. Power consumption of 2200G is very low in IDLE. If you will underclock and undervolt CPU and iGPU - you could reach 40-45TDP for sure.
