According to the recently announced test and Gigabyte list, Athlon Pro 3000GE looks like a new member of the Picasso family.

AMD currently offers some desktop Picasso APUs, including Ryzen 3 3200G and Ryzen 5 3400G. However, so far, there is only one desktop Athlon APU in the Picasso family. That is Athlon Pro 300GE. The new

Gigabyte Athlon 3000G has joined Picasso's APU ranks. This means that it is likely to be created using GlobalFoundries' 12nm manufacturing process, using AMD's Zen + computing and Vega graphics micro-architecture.

Although we don’t know much about this new Athlon list, we do know that it operates at 3.5 GHz, which is 100 MHz higher than the previous Athlon Pro 300GE.

The new Athlon 3000G will support two cores and four threads. It looks like what we expect from the economy class APU. Following the existing Athlon APU, Athlon 3000G also seems to have 1MB of L2 cache and 4MB of L3 cache.

Gigabyte’s list also puts the Athlon 3000G on the integrated graphics processing unit (iGPU), which runs at 1,100 MHz.

However, it will use the same thermal design power design as Athlon Pro 300GE, with a TDP of 35W.

There is reason to believe that AMD is developing a new Picasso APU. This news comes from June, when ASRock listed some unreleased AMD APUs, including Athlon 320GE and Athlon 300GE. Since AMD released the Athlon Pro 300GE, we assume they want to release a non-professional version as well.

Interestingly, when looking at the Gigabyte and ASRock charts, the Athlon 3000G looks almost the same as the Athlon 320FE. The listing shows the specs and revision B1 that appear identical.

This raises an important question as to whether this is actually a new development or whether AMD is simply renaming its Athlon 320GE. For those looking for a new version, they may end up disappointed. As always, if we hear more about the Athlon 3000G APU, we will notify you in time.

What do you think? Does Athlon 3000G sound like a new chip to you? Or is AMD hoping to change its name?
