Unrevealed AMD Ryzen 3 5300G APU Appears on eBay

On the eBay marketplace, an offer has appeared in the form of a quad-core AMD Ryzen 3 5300G APU based on the Zen 3 architecture. The chip belongs to the Cezanne family’s desktop part, which AMD has not even officially presented yet. Despite this fact, some sellers are already selling engineering samples of this family of processors. Previously, for example, the same seller offered an eight-core Ryzen 7 5700G model.

Ryzen 3 5300G engineering sample with ID 100-000000262-30_Y has a base frequency of 3.5 GHz. The source of supply for the chip is unknown. Still, AMD and Intel are constantly providing engineering samples to motherboard manufacturers and system integrators long before the new series of processors’ official release. The seller estimated the “engineer” at $ 177.

The product description initially indicated that processor support is minimal since many motherboards cannot yet work with Cezanne hybrid APUs. He later added that the problem was in the integrated graphics core, for which the required driver was not available, but one of the “caring fans” provided a beta version of the driver. It is also offered with a processor.

The AMD Ryzen 3 5300G engineering sample scores 570 points in the single-core CPU-Z test and 3003 points in the multi-core test in its current state.

The seller also provided the results of testing the chip in the Cinebench R15 and Cinebench R20 tests, but only in multichannel mode. In the first, he scored 2068 points, and in the second – 2685 points, respectively.

He also posted a video demonstrating the use of the Ryzen 3 5300G engineering sample:

The previous series of Zen 2 (Renoir) APUs were marketed exclusively through off-the-shelf OEMs. However, in some markets, chips did appear as a separate product, albeit unofficially.
