AMD is delivering on its promise and revealing more details about the Zen 4c cores in some of its mobile APUs.
Let us remind you that these cores technically differ from Zen 4 only in size, but also operate at lower frequencies. AMD had not previously indicated frequencies anywhere. Now this information has been revealed.
So, in the Ryzen 5 8500G, the lower cores operate at frequencies of 3.2-3.7 GHz versus 4.1-5.0 GHz for Zen 4. The Ryzen 3 8300G operates at frequencies of 3.2-3.6 GHz.
Thus, the Ryzen 5 8500G should be slightly slower than the Ryzen 5 8600G, which does not have Zen 4c cores, meaning all its cores operate at frequencies of 4.3-5.0 GHz. Moreover, the number of cores of these two APUs is identical.
