AMD had a massive 2017. They launched Ryzen and Threadripper and brought back competition to a PC segment that was on the verge of stagnation. 2018 also started well for the company. Raven Ridge APUs are a welcome addition to the PC market. Especially when discrete GPU pricing is so out of control.

Raven Ridge currently comprises of 2 parts, both 65 w TDP, Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G. But now it looks like AMD has more Ryzen APUs on the horizon, with ASUS listing E-series variants of these new APUs that offer lower power operation. These new low-power APUs are the Ryzen 3 2200GE and the Ryzen 5 2400GE, delivering the same basic specifications as their non-E series counterparts but with lower core clock speeds and a lower 35W TDP.

These new parts certainly look compelling however one must note that AMD has made no such product claims and it may ultimately be a typo on the part of ASUS as well.
