AMD claims that the Ryzen 7000 graphics are insufficient to play

AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be the first to include integrated RDNA 2 graphics, but they aren’t designed for gaming and will not replace AMD’s gaming-focused APUs. AMD head of technical marketing Robert Hallock indicated that CPUs and APUs will coexist in the future during his keynote at Computex 2022.

AMD claims that the Ryzen 7000 graphics are insufficient to play

Instead of playing games, the integrated RDNA 2 graphics in Ryzen 7000 CPUs are built for convenience and for mainstream customers. AMD confirmed that each Ryzen 7000 CPU will have a set number of RDNA 2 cores: Two. That’s only a third of the number for the lowest-end integrated graphics inside Ryzen 6000 CPUs, which pack in six RDNA 2 cores.

“We still think of Ryzen 7000 series as CPUs,” Hallock said in an interview with Digital Trends, “because we consider [integrated graphics] as distinct from APUs with a huge graphics engine capable of playing games, and both designs will exist in our roadmap into the future.”

There are a few advantages for integrated graphics in Ryzen 7000 CPUs outside of gaming, according to Hallock. First, they offer video encode and decode capabilities directly on the processor, which Hallock says is the “primary” benefit of including them. In addition, they offer recourse for troubleshooting without a discrete GPU.

Ryzen 7000 is the first generation to include integrated graphics, which Intel has included on its processors for several generations. Hallock says the inclusion is more for convenience, however, and they won’t further segment the range. Intel, for example, offers F-series CPUs without integrated graphics for a slightly cheaper price.

“From a diagnostic point of view, say you have a bum graphics card. Now you’ve got some integrated graphics on Ryzen that you can use to double check or post the system,” Hallock said “Or if you haven’t received your discrete graphics card yet, it’s still in the mail. At least I’ve experienced this, where I have a pile of parts and can’t do anything with them because the GPU hasn’t arrived yet.”
