Today AMD announced a slew of new processors, with most being Pro versions of its 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs, but also the new budget Athlon 200GE was revealed, along with a Pro variant. This processor is targeting low cost computers as it is a 2 core/4 thread part clocked at 3.2 GHz, but it also packs in three Vega compute units so this one chip can get you up and playing some esports titles on its own. Of course the already available Ryzen 3 2200G would be more powerful, with hits more GPU cores and higher clock speed, but the Athlon 200GE has a TDP of just 35 W and a price of $55. It is an AM4 processor too, so you can drop it into any of the motherboards for that platform, either for a low cost, low power build or as a place holder until you can upgrade. It is a locked part though, so you will not be able to overclock it. Also, while details have not be disclosed yet, AMD also revealed Athlon 220GE and Athlon 240GE processors will be coming in Q4 2018. The Athlon 200GE will be available starting September 18.

AMD also announced the Pro versions of some 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs, which OEMs like Dell, HP, and Lenovo will integrate into their systems according to their launch schedules. The Athlon Pro 200 GE, Ryzen 5 Pro 2600, Ryzen 7 Pro 2700, and Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X exist to offer businesses the power of the Zen architecture while also having the reliability and security they need.
