AMD Ryzen 3 5300G overclocks like a champ – but you still can’t buy one

Image Description

AMD’s Ryzen 3 5300G, the entry-level APU of the Cezanne family, has been shown overclocked to a seriously fast 5.6GHz, albeit using exotic cooling.

This comes from an entry in the CPU-Z database (from a certain ‘Yosarianilives’) spotted by Tum_Apisak on Twitter which shows the quad-core (8-thread) Ryzen 3 5300G hitting this impressive speed, well above its stock clock of 4GHz (and boost of up to 4.2GHz).

Liquid nitrogen cooling was used, as is often the case in monster overclocking efforts. Reaching a speed of 5.6GHz is actually a third faster than that maximum rated boost speed of 4.2GHz, and represents a big leap indeed.

It bodes well for what can be achieved with overclocking using more traditional cooling (namely air), although the slight fly in the APU ointment is that it’s not possible to buy the Ryzen 3 5300G off-the-shelf as a standalone product. Instead, it’s only being used by OEMs in prebuilt PCs.

Budget promise

AMD did promise that when Ryzen 5000G APUs were first launched and were only available to PC makers, that they’d eventually come to DIY system builders later in the year. And just now at Computex, AMD announced that the Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G in the Cezanne range are going to be sold standalone, but the same courtesy hasn’t been extended to the cheapest APU from Team Red.

Hopefully that situation will change down the line, and it’s just a matter of waiting a bit longer – but nothing official has been said on the broader launch of the 5300G to the computing public yet.

These desktop APUs differ from Ryzen 5000 CPUs in that they come with integrated graphics (boasting 6 GPU cores with the 5300G) with some serious performance chops, so they’re a good all-in-one solution for a cheaper 1080p-targeted gaming PC. Particularly if you’re struggling to find a contemporary discrete graphics card given all the production issues around right now (or indeed a CPU for that matter).

  • Zenfolio is now offering its website builder service to UK photographers

    Popular website builder for photographers, Zenfolio has launched a new platform for its UK clientele, six months after the company unveiled its new solution in the US.

    The new platform combines a website builder, photo gallery and ecommerce website solution, as well as CRM tools. 

    Available now, the solution has integrated booking, real-time scheduling, invoicing, payment and automatic fulfilment capabilities that allow photographers to spend more time behind the lens as the Zenfolio platform works behind the scenes. 

    Portfolio for photographers 

    Built on a Machine Learning infrastructure, the platform offers analytical insights and recommendations, as well as photo searching options.

    Zenfolio said in a blog post that the new platform was launched to target photography businesses looking to manage and grow their profile.

    “The UK has always been a very important market for Zenfolio and our new platform gives photographers sophisticated tools to improve their business productivity, with automated, efficient workflows for mobile-friendly interactions with their clients.” said John Loughlin, Zenfolio CEO.

    The platform also enables intuitive selling, the creation of promotional coupons, and an ordering system for digital downloads along with automated fulfilment and shipping of lab photo products from One Vision Imaging (OVI).

    The UK platform is slightly different to the US solution Zenfolio launched in April 2021. The US platform has two plans, Portfolio and PortfolioPlus, while the UK platform offers an additional plan, Prosuite.

    The Prosuite plan offers 1TB of storage for photos and the maximum file size for photos across all Zenfolio plans is 100MB.

    The Portfolio and PortfolioPlus plans have been developed to cater to the needs of aspiring and part-time photographers.

    The solution uses automation to book new clients and email client campaigns and promotions. Zenfolio also added a people filter solution that utilizes facial recognition software to help photographers and their clients search through hundreds of photos to streamline the photo proofing and selection process.
