AMD Ryzen 7 5700G CPU Deal: All-Time Low of $279

When it comes to AMD's Zen 3 desktop processors, the Cezanne-based Ryzen 5000G family is perhaps the least well known. The flagship member of this family is the Ryzen 7 5700G, and it differs from the likes of the Ryzen 7 5800X due to its inclusion of an integrated Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU, which is good enough for modest gaming. 

The Ryzen 7 5700G has an MSRP of $359, but is available today from antonline's eBay store for $279, an all-time low price. That's one of the best Cyber Monday CPU deals and a new low for the processor, even lower than when we first published this article earlier in the week and it was $309. You can also get the 5700G on Newegg for $299.

When it comes to specs, the Ryzen 7 5700G is an 8-core, 16-thread processor with a base clock of 3.8 GHz and a boost clock of 4.6 GHz. In addition, AMD squeezes in 16MB of L3 cache (compared to 32MB for the Ryzen 7 5800X).

The Ryzen 7 5700G is an 8-core/16-thread Zen 3 APU with an integrated Vega 8 GPU. It has a base clock of 3.8 GHz and a 4.6 GHz boost clock. It's a performance bargain for eSports gamers.

Newegg has the 5700G for a slightly-higher price, but some shoppers may prefer to buy from them.

Given that the Ryzen 7 5700G has a relatively low 65-watt TDP, it comes with a cooling solution in the box. The Wraith Stealth cooler is sufficient if you plan to keep the processor at stock speeds, but we'd suggest a beefier solution from our best CPU coolers list if you want to perform any serious overclocking. 

In our testing, we were able to dial the Vega 8 GPU all the way to 2.4 GHz (up from the stock 2 GHz). We achieved an all-core overclock of 4.5 GHz for the CPU but ran into some stability issues. However, you may fair better with AMD's Precision Boost Overdrive when it comes to extracting the most performance out of the processor.

We also found the Ryzen 7 5700G to offer incredible power efficiency and excellent gaming performance at 720p resolution across the board. Cranking the resolution up to 1080p whittled down the number of playable games, but fiddling around with individual image quality settings should help improve performance.

However, we should mention that the cheaper Ryzen 5 5600G offers a better price-to-performance ratio if you have a tight budget. And also, keep in mind that the Ryzen 5000G family is limited to PCIe 3.0 connectivity, unlike the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X, for example, which support PCIe 4.0.

With that said, the Ryzen 7 5700G still represents a great performance bargain for someone looking to build a low-cost rig that can handle eSports titles without too much hassle. And given that finding a discrete GPU these days at MSRP is near-impossible, having a decently fast integrated GPU is an added bonus.

    I don't think any price drop on any G series models will move these from the stores . These CPU types are e-waste.

    No PCIE 4.0
    x16 for dedicated GPU ? It might be x8 but too lazy to check
    zen3 with poor boost freq and cache removed = trash performance for later GPU upgrades
    old GPU arch from decades ago.....

    Micro Center has the Ryzen 7 5800X for $ 299. Much better deal than this!

    Why would you say that is a better deal? You then have to go spend good money on a Discrete graphics card...

    The arch isn't decades old. Vega is only 4yrs old. The performance is just fine, as you can see here.

    1440p, or 4k, the gap would be even smaller, or even non existent. Gaming rigs have 0 need for PCI-E gen 4.0.

    Whatever. You can't trust everything you read on the Internet.

    No PCIE 4.0: does not mean PCIe Gen 3 is suddenly bad. In fact, a vast array of PCIe cards are Gen 3 x16 or Gen 3 x8 and their performance has not changed one iota with the release of Gen 4.

    x16 for dedicated GPU ? It might be x8 but too lazy to check: this is not related to the CPU, but to the motherboard. Example: the ASRock B550M-ITXac offers x8 + x8 and x8 + x4 + x4 bifurcation in the BIOS (see https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/B550M-ITXac/index.asp) . You then need to use a passive PCIe board bifurcation (not difficult to find pretty good ones with some googling or binging, see for example https://c-payne.com/collections/pcie-x8x8-bifurcation-pcbs). In addition, yes the AMD 5000g series offers 16 lanes, contrary to the previous versions 3000g and 4000g which offered 8 lanes.

    zen3 with poor boost freq and cache removed = trash performance for later GPU upgrades: yes, Zen 3 is so trash that nobody buys it *&^%$#@!

    old GPU arch from decades ago: yet Vega iGPU leaves Intel UHD Graphics 770 in the dust, so one must conclude that Intel UHD is from centuries ago.

    I setup and am using a home NAS and VM Server with:
    AMD 5700g (new)
    32GB memory (new)
    ASRock B550M-ITXac configured x8 + x8 (new)

    Idle: 26W
    Highest during boot: 80W
    Running benchmarks (e.g. Phoronix Test Suite): up to 80WThis provides me with a ~30TB NAS over 40 GbE (IPoIB) (as well as 1GbE and 2.5GbE for stations or SBC without an IB card) for a total cost of $2753.33.

    Samba transfer samples with IPoIB:

    4 GB file in 1.879 seconds,
    40 GB file in 49.211 seconds.
    Folder containing 500 files for a total of 1.6GB (100 files of 1,2,3,4,5 MB) in 1.7 seconds.For people working with large files: media creation, databases, VMs, backups, video server, etc this is heaven (not e-waste...)

    Try to match this with a QNAP, Synology, Asustor or TerraMaster solution for the same price with the same feature set.

    If you want to write an alternative fact hatchet job post, at least try to find better arguments because what you wrote is just ridiculous.
