AMD's new Ryzen 5000G chips wield Radeon graphics and double the cores
AMD's modern Ryzen APUs with integrated Radeon graphics have been a big hit with budget PC builders since their arrival, and should be in hot demand given the untenable state of today's graphics card market. But there hasn't been a fresh DIY offering since the Ryzen 3 3200G's release in 2019—until now. On Tuesday morning, AMD quietly announced a new generation of Ryzen 5000G desktop processors, including models with significantly more cores than before. You might still be waiting a while to get your hands on one though.

The Ryzen 5000G series—built around the "Cezanne" architecture that debuted in AMD's excellent Ryzen 5000 Mobile chips—will debut first in prebuilt computers by the likes of Dell and HP before rolling out in DIY retail form later this year, AnandTech and Tom's Hardware report. Each of the three chips being introduced will come in 65 watt "G" and 35 watt "GE" varieties, with the latter offering lower base clock frequencies:

At what price does a console become better than a gaming PC? | Ask an expert
Q: What price makes a console a better choice for gaming than a PC? I'm asking both in general and specific to current times, when it's hard as heck to get my hands on computer components.

A: The exact number varies depending on what type of gamer you are. Generally speaking, this question applies when you tend to play games that aren't PC exclusives and your PC budget is in the same price range as modern consoles. After last fall's new console launches, that range falls between $300 and $500.

To pinpoint it further than that, you'll need to compare the performance of equivalently priced consoles and gaming PCs, then factor in the genres you play and your general computing needs. So for example, let's say you only ever play single-player AAA titles, and you like to play them as soon as they come out. You also already have a device that you use for everyday tasks like web browsing and video calling, like an older laptop or PC. So long as you don't need universal mouse and keyboard support in games, an Xbox Series S, Series X, or PlayStation 5 would be better for gaming. In that price range, the consoles clobber the PC. Moreover, they'll play everything that comes out during their lifespan, including all big blockbuster games. The last two console generations lasted between seven and eight years—a graphics card you buy today won't be able to play 2028's AAA titles at the same graphical fidelity as it does now, but a console will.
