Product information - Athlon 200GE, 3,2 GHz (Raven Ridge) Socket AM4 - boxed
The legendary Athlon-series of processors entered the marketplace with a bang almost 20 years ago and experienced one success after another for many years thereafter. These AMD Athlon CPUs originally debuted in the year 2000 with a screaming fast clockspeed of 1,0 Gigahertz (1.000 Megahertz) . Nowadays the traditional Athlon brand name is no longer used for the high-end series of chips produced by AMD, instead they are using for efficient yet powerful entry-level APUs like the AMD Athlon 200GE.
The AMD Athlon 200GE 3,2 GHz 2-Core Processor at a Glance:
- Dual-core "Zen+" cores clocked at 3,2 GHz CPU (base clock)
- 4 Threads thanks to Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT)
- Cool and quiet: 35 Watt Thermal Design Power (TDP)
- Integrated Radeon Vega 3 GPU with 3 CUs/192 Shaders
- H.265/HEVC + VP9 hardware video decoding
- Large unified cache memory: 1 MB L2 & 4 MB L3
- Advanced, highly-efficient 14+ Nanometer FinFET transistors
- AVX2 instruction set extensions for vector calculations
- Two AES units for reliable data encryption
- Modern AM4-platform with DDR4-RAM (Dual-Channel)
- IncludesAMD "Near silent"-CPU coolers!
AMD Athlon APU with "Zen+" Processors for Socket AM4
The AMD Athlon 200GE is an entry-level processor from the "Raven Ridge"-generation with two physical CPU cores which, thanks to Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT), are each capable of processing two threads at the same time, meaning that the number of cores available is effectively doubled to a total of four. The dual-core processor operates at a base clock of 3,2 GHz per core and the silicon is manufactured using the advanced 14 Plus nm FinFET process using stapled transistors (also known as 3D transistors).
The drastic reduction in size creates additional space on the processor die, thereby allowing the integration of a total of 1 MB Level 2 Cache (2x 512 KB) and 4 MB Level 3 Cache along with a powerful Radeon Vega 3 GPU with 192 Shaders in 3 Compute Units (CUs). In terms of socket, this uses the modern AM4 format just like Ryzen CPUs, meaning that both Ryzen/Athlon APUs can be used on the same motherboard.
AMD Radeon Vega - Advanced Graphics Chips for the DesktopThe unique feature of APUs from the "Raven Ridge" series is the integrated graphics unit which is based on the Vega architecture. This has resulted in a fusion of the 2017-era CPUs with their "Zen+" architecture with the Vega architecture of the same year to forge an efficient yet extremely powerful APU. Apart from a multitude of optimisations compared to older AMD graphics chips, Vega also introduced several more features, including: a High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC), Rapid Packed Math (RPM), Next-Gen Compute Units (NCU), a New Programmable Geometry Pipeline and an Enhanced Pixel Engine.
The AMD Athlon 200GE APU is equipped with a Radeon Vega 3 GPU. Here the graphics chip includes three Compute Units with a total of 192 Shaders. The GPU base clock sits at 1.000 MHz. The Athlon APU supports fast DDR4-RAM at a clock speed of up to 2.933 MHz and the integrated GPU particularly benefits from the speed increase. The combination of "Zen+" CPU architecture and a "Vega" GPU results in a surprisingly low Thermal Design Power (TDP) of just 35 Watts.
