AMD are back again, injecting even more choice into the PC/laptop building market with their brand new line of 4000 series processors. Set to be released in the third quarter of 2020, these brand new chips are set to come with integrated Radeon graphics as standard, and are looking to be very exciting in terms of progression when it comes to gaming performance.
Saeid Moshkelani, Senior Vice President had this to say: “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. 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.”
