The final clock speeds for the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G APUs have been unveiled by TUM_APISAK. The processors which are part of the AMD Ryzen 3000 "Picasso" family will be hitting the market shelves soon and will be compatible with all AM4 socketed motherboards.
AMD Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G Final Clocks Unveiled - Up To 4.2 GHz Boost For Zen+ APUs
The AMD Ryzen 3000 series APUs are based on the 12nm FinFET process and feature the Zen+ core architecture. While Zen+ cores have been available on Ryzen 2000 series processors, the previous APU lineup was based on the 14nm Zen cores. With Picasso, AMD is now bringing the updated Zen+ cores to APUs on the desktop platform.
There are two processors which will be part of the Picasso family, the Ryzen 5 3400G & the Ryzen 3 3200G. The Ryzen 5 3400G is a four core and eight thread part with 4 MB of L3 cache, Vega 11 GPU with 704 stream processors and a TDP of 65W. The processor would feature clock speeds of 3.70 GHz base and 4.20 GHz boost which are a good uplift over the Ryzen 2000 series APUs. In terms of pricing, we can expect the chip to fall around the $150 US mark or lower.
The second chip, the Ryzen 3 3200G, is a four core and four thread part which means that multi-threading is not present but we should also expect a lower cost for this part under the $100 US range, making it a very good option for budget builds. The processor will feature Vega 8 GPU with 512 SPs, a 65W TDP and 4 MB of L3 cache. Clocks for the Ryzen 3 3200G are rated at 3.60 GHz base and 4.00 GHz boost.

We have already seen some early leaks regarding the Ryzen 3000 APUs with one user even failing at an attempt to delid a Ryzen 3 3200G engineering sample. The process of delidding did unveil a gold plated solder under the IHS which should deliver better thermals and overclocking results compared to the older 1st Gen Zen based Ryzen APUs.
While the specs may not seem like much of a change, it should be known that the AMD Picasso generation of APUs was always meant to feature the Raven Ridge design while adopting the Zen+ cores for power/performance uplift. The Ryzen 3000 APUs have already been announced for the notebook platforms and now we are going to see them in action on the desktop AM4 platform too.
