AMD today announced its Ryzen 4000 Series Desktop Processors with Radeon graphics, the world’s first 7-nm x86 desktop processors with built in graphics.

“AMD is dedicated to continuously pushing the boundaries of processing power and graphics performance to deliver amazing PC experiences for all customers, from mainstream PC users, to gamers, streamers and enterprise users,” AMD senior vice president Saeid Moshkelani said in a prepared statement. “Today, in association with our longstanding PC partners, we are excited to launch the AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Desktop Processors. The ultimate desktop processors with built-in graphics delivering amazing performance for work or play.”

AMD’s Ryzen 4000 Series Desktop Processors are built on a 7-nm manufacturing process and the AMD “Zen 2” core architecture, and they’re geared for both enterprise and consumer use-cases with enthusiast-level performance for gaming and content creation. They offer up to 2.5X the multi-threaded performance compared to previous generation AMD chipsets, the firm says, up to 31 percent greater multithreaded performance than the Intel Core i7-9700, and up to 202 percent better graphics performance than the Intel Core i7-9700.

The Ryzen 4000 G-Series Desktop Processors are expected to be available in gaming and enthusiast systems from PC makers like HP and Lenovo starting in the third quarter. The Ryzen PRO 4000 Series Desktop Processors are available now from systems integrators and will ship in business-class PCs starting later this fall, AMD says.
