The Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X carries a TDP of 95W while the other two check in at 65W.
The Athlon Pro 200GE, meanwhile, is a dual-core / four thread part with a base clock of 3.2GHz and a TDP of 35W that also has integrated Radeon Vega graphics. It’s an entry-level CPU meant to compete with Intel’s Pentium G4560 and according to AMD’s internal benchmarks, it’s 19 percent faster than its competition in PCMark 10 and 67 percent faster in 3DMark 11 (its CPU performance is three percent slower, however, in Cinebench R15).
AMD’s Athlon 200GE is expected to be unveiled on September 6 (tomorrow) and go on sale on September 18 at a suggested price of $55. No word yet on the reveal / launch dates for the Ryzen Pro chips.
