It’s followed by the Ryzen 8600G is equipped with six cores, 12 threads, 22MB of cache, and Radeon 760M graphics. The two models come with AMD’s new Ryzen AI technology, including the first NPU on a desktop processor, which is meant to optimize AI workloads, improve AI processing efficiency, and allow support for new AI utilizations, such as AI-powered noise cancellation.

The rest of the new lineup include the Ryzen 5 8500G, which comes with the same specs as the Ryzen 5 8600G minus the Ryzen AI NPU, as well the Ryzen 3 8300G, which features four cores, eight threads, and 12MB of cache.
