AMD lifted the kimono on its new line of desktop processors based on its Zen 2 architecture with integrated Radeon graphics.

The idea is to compete against Intel with OEM system builders much better. The new AMD Ryzen 4000 socket AM4 desktop processors are sexed up versions of AMD's already announced Ryzen 4000 laptop CPUs, but with faster base and boost clocks, as well as faster GPU clocks for desktop PCs.

There are two distinct families AMD Ryzen 4000 families, a trio of 65-watt processors that include the Ryzen 3 4300G (4-core/8-thread), Ryzen 5 4600G (6-core/12-thread), and the flagship Ryzen 7 4700G, offering 8 cores/16 threads, base/boost clocks of 3.6GHz/4.4GHz, 12MB cache, and 8 Radeon Vega cores clocked at 2100MHz. AMD is also offering three 35-watt processors -- Ryzen 3 4300GE, Ryzen 5 4600GE, and the Ryzen 7 4700GE -- which share the same base hardware configurations as the "G" models but slightly lower CPU/GPU clocks to reduce power consumption.

AMD announced its Ryzen Pro 4000 series for business desktops, which also include a dedicated security processor and support for AMD Memory Guard full system memory encryption.

Specs for the Ryzen Pro 4000G (65W) and Ryzen Pro 4000GE (35W) are similar to AMD consumer desktop counterparts.
