AMD’s Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 series processors for notebooks first came to light during CES 2020 that happened earlier this year. Now, a recent tweet by Twitter user _rogame (@_rogame) seems to confirm that the company already has a desktop version of its Ryzen 4000 processor.
According to @_rogame’s tweet, the alleged desktop-based Ryzen 4000 processor was running on a Gigabyte B550 AORUS Pro AC motherboard. Leaving us to believe that this particular CPU isn’t a high-end variant, but a mid-range variant of sorts. Further information also indicates that it will have integrated Radeon GPU cores, all supposedly running at 1750MHz.

If the B550 motherboard still isn’t enough of an indication that the processor isn’t enthusiast-level, the tweet also specifies that it was tested with DDR4 RAM running at 2133MHz. That’s pretty slow, considering that Renoir’s Zen 2 CPU architecture supports DDR4 RAM speeds of up 3200MHz.
Sadly, there still isn’t a whole lot of information of the Ryzen 4000 desktop processor, and AMD still hasn’t made any official statement of it either. However, if these specs are to be believed, then we’re probably looking at a processor that will use the AM4 socket. Until then, take this news with a very large grain of salt.
