AMD Ryzen 7 4700G 8-Core Zen 2 Renoir Desktop APU Smiles For The Camera

One of those is on display, the Ryzen 7 4700G, which posed for somebody's camera. You can see it up top, courtesy of Videocardz. The unnamed source who provided the photo told the site it is the final version and that Renoir APUs should find their way to retail stores soon. Still no word on an actual release date or potential pricing, though.
Assuming this is a legitimate leak, I have no idea why the person behind the camera could not take two seconds to steady their hands and snap a decent shot. I've done my best to sharpen it a bit in Photoshop, but it's frustrating that leakers often go this route—it takes actual effort to snap a blurry photo on today's cameras. Perhaps this is a so-called controlled leak to drum up excitement and anticipation. Either way, this is a pet peeve of mine.
My little rant aside, the supposed engineering sample confirms there will be a Ryzen 7 4700G (assuming this is real, that is). And if a recent leak is any indication, it will be one of at least 22 desktop APUs on tap from AMD.
That's three fewer CUs at the top-end, though faster clocks and optimizations should help offset the difference, at least in theory. We can't wait to find out.
