Even better for small form factors, our new price/performance king with 6 cores and 12 threads at just 65W TDP but with a little trick up its sleeve! The 8500G lacks AI Accelerators but uses a combination of Zen4 and “Zen 4c” cores, which are our more efficient and smaller, but almost equal in performance to regular
Zen4 (not to be mistaken for our competitors’ ‘E’ cores! These are still true Zen4 cores).
This means the 8500G, although still capable of boosting over 5GHz, in reality consumes as little as between 35W and 42W of power while delivering great performance!
It still features our RDNA3 based iGPU cores for incredible integrated graphics 3D performance and comes with our AMD Stealth cooler! Even our “entry level” APU on AM5 is so much better than the Core i5 13600.
