Wonder if they will make any G chips with the 3D V cache - that would be sweet, but I think they may just give us the 5800X3D for AM4, at least at first, and maybe a 5900X3D later...
Nah, they wouldn't waste that tech on APU's. I'm more interested in the new APU's with RDNA2 graphics architecture than anything else this year.

You're probably right, I have heard nothing indicating AM4 APUs with 3D. But, I also think APUs with RDNA2 will be on AM5 unfortunately...

Amazon price on the 5600G is still there and available. Better CPU than a Ryzen 3600, with better than GT 1030 graphics for $221.50 is a deal in this market.

EDIT: Sold out now. 2/1/2022

What's the best value motherboard to pair with one of these? I've got a microcenter within driving distance and my old tech NAS is falling through possibly, so I'm investigating a new tech NAS with a 5600G.

Just about any 4 or 5 series board is fine. Concentrate on the features you want from the board. Only real caveat is making certain of OOB support. Employees should be able to advise you. Or you can pick a model with a version of bios flashback on it, so you can update it without having a CPU in it.

I have it in an OG MSI Tomahawk for now. But it worked perfectly in an ASRock B450 Gaming itx/ac, too. It already had the latest bios when purchased so it was plug and play.

5600G for $179. (It could be this price at other stores. I only checked 3 sites.)

I traded mine away. Very tempted to buy another to replace a 3200G. The last one did 4.7GHz all core even with a iGPU overclock, with a Noctua redux 12. Ran cool and quiet, always stayed under 1.5vcore. Did it with game mode in the MSI UEFI, one click. The iGPU overclock was one setting change too.

Can't recommend this APU enough at this price.

Disappointed that the 5700G has been stubbornly at or above $250 everywhere (at least at MC)... I feel it should be around $200 really at this point...
If you really think about it $250 for an 8 core 16 thread CPU with decent built in graphics is still a killer deal. The cheapest 8 core sold by newegg is the 10700F and it's $240 with a promo code and doesn't have graphics.

Yeah, BUT it does have less cache and is PCIE3 only... ;)

Here is my hot take-

3.0 16X is still plenty of bandwidth for gaming it up. A 10700f is PCIE 3.0 too, so no advantage there. Also, no point in 4.0 nvme for the vast majority of use cases either. Particularly for buyers at this price tier. And the half sized cache may look worse in bar graphs, but mine will drive a 2070super or 3060ti for a great experience in any game out there. Isn't that what matters? The gaming experience? It boosts to 4.85GHz by clicking one setting, and the Vega concurrently overclocks to 2300-2400MHz by changing one more setting. Free, better than advertised performance, with almost no effort? Yes please!

Where this APU shines though, is tiny gaming capable builds, like a deskmini, or mini-ITX that doesn't have room for a discreet vid card. On its own, there isn't any better bang for buck in the DIY space, for such a build. You don't have to invest in cooling either, the included stock one works fine.

Class leading DIY overclockable APU with 16 threads for $250, and no added cooling cost = hot deal IMO.
