The latest Ryzen 5000 G-Series option are available now in NZ, named the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G – both are new CPUs (or APUs more accurately) with Radeon graphics built-in. AMD aim to deliver a gaming experience without the need for additional graphics cards. This is most excellent news for those looking to build a new mini PC for playing games like Genshin Impact, Warframe, War Thunder, Fortnite, CSGO and pretty much everything else that’s in our PC free to play games list blog, and as you’d expect, both CPU are extremely capable in regular desktop duties too.
Those gearing up with one of these new Ryzen options will be happy to hear that AMD have teamed up WARFRAME and we now have a new AMD Rewards G-SERIES bonus bundle available today!
This promotion is available from August 6th – September 25th, and it must be purchased from an authorised retailer so you can claim the AMD Rewards Key (PB Tech in New Zealand).
For those who haven’t played Warframe before, you’re in for a treat, this looter shooter has an incredible amount of customisable characters and weapons, planets to conquer, star fields to explore – the way it plays changes significantly as you level up and continue to customise each, and the final swing from absolute godlike power to mission failure can be challenging, but that’s one of the many things that makes this game so successful.
CPU wise, it’s only the newest AMD G-Series Ryzen 5 & 7 options that are eligible, quick links below for both options.
Motherboard wise look to the newer AM4 socket 500 series options for hassle free installation, or check for BIOS updates first to make sure it’s good. Fast RAM for the 5600G & 5700G is good too, and the performance from the 3200MHz sweet spot kits available now is excellent, popping in a 3600MHz gives a small bump to FPS in games that already run well.
These 5000G series CPUs were first shown during the recent Computex event, along with some comparisons with the i7-11700 option from Intel.
