AMD’s Raven Ridge Apus are only a few days from launching, but a budget Athlon version could be waiting in the wings. It seems AMD are already testing a potential new addition to the lineup based on the same APU architecture - the AMD Athlon 200GE. It has been spotted by ComputerBase on the SiSoft Sandra database, potentially indicating AMD’s return to the ultra low-end desktop market.

AMD’s Athlon Processors have been in deep-sleep since the last iteration with the X4 processors. While these straight-up CPUs feature four cores and four threads, the Athlon 200GE is reported on the SiSoft database with only two multithreaded cores totalling four threads - although these are based upon hugely differing architectures. You do, however, receive Radeon Vega Graphics, too.
