Description of the processor

With the AMD Ryzen 5 8600G, AMD introduced a new APU for the AM5 socket at the beginning of January 2024. The AMD Ryzen 5 8600G has 6 CPU cores and can process up to 12 threads in parallel thanks to the support of "Simultaneous Multi-Threading" technology.

Also available and new to the desktop area at this time is AMD Ryzen AI, which is supported by the AMD Ryzen 5 8600G. The NPU in the AMD Ryzen 5 8600G has a theoretical computing power of 16 TOPS.

The AMD Ryzen 5 8600G combines modern Zen 4 CPU cores with an equally modern integrated graphics unit, the AMD Radeon 760M. This is based on the AMD RDNA3 graphics architecture. Theoretically, this iGPU even supports ray tracing, but this is mostly irrelevant due to the insufficient performance.

In addition, AMDs frame generation (AMD FSR) has also been supported since January 2024, in which the graphics card calculates intermediate frames, which leads to significantly more FPS in computer games. The AMD Radeon 760M clocks at up to 2.8 GHz in the AMD Ryzen 5 8600G and achieves almost 2700 points in the graphics benchmark 3D Mark TimeSpy (Graphics). The theoretical FP32 computing power of the graphics card is just under 2.9 TFLOPS.

Up to 256 GB of RAM (DDR5-5200) can be installed in a system with the AMD Ryzen 5 8600G. At least two memory modules should be installed to operate the memory in dual-channel mode. The maximum memory bandwidth is 83.2 GB/s, although faster RAM outside the specification can also be used. Since the graphics unit benefits greatly from the memory speed, you should use DDR5-6000 or higher if possible.

Since the iGPU uses internal PCIe lines, the processor only supports PCIe 4.0 with a maximum of 20 lines instead of PCIe 5.0. This is still completely sufficient and does not currently represent a bottleneck.
