Im sorry but ill belive this "complement" theory when i see it, nothing that AMD did so far leads me to belive such a thing, everything that AMD did so far goes against that, cutting motherboard compatibility, launching the Athlon 3150G, what is likely be way too near the 3200G pricing, they killed 3400G supply earlier this year for months and it only recovered like a month or so ago.Again for the n-th time, it is not replacing but complementing the 3200g & 3400g
It ends up offering more diverse options to enthusiasts and allows the old flagship to be significantly discounted. (That is a complete win-win for consumers.) So either can get a much better deal on top of the line igpu gaming with a 3400g or you can at the same price get stronger CPU cores with an iGPU exceeding that of a 3200g but with almost twice the CPU capability as the 3200g.
The fact that 7nm Vega 7 outperformed the old 11 Vega flagship in the Rainbow6 iGPU-test (and probably traded blows in other iGPU tests) is impressive to me.
If you are so much stressing the (pretty insignificant) ~15% GPU disadvantage of 7nm Vega 6 over the flagship Picasso iGPU and talking about the great importance of the iGPU then also kindly point out that the i3-10100 that you are promoting is an absolute joke that shouldn't even be an option in your context.
You must misunderstand my point, which is that any smart enthusiast knows that he can (usually) also go the dGPU route. Hence, that person might get himself a 3600 + RX 570 at a not dramatically higher % build cost while getting well over 2x any top end iGPU performance, or a 2600+570 for a good bit below the cost of a 4750g
I also find hard to belive that AMD wants a cheapper Picasso to steal sales from the more expensive Renoir and B550 motherboards due to having velue IGP perf value. Im not going to say that it is impossible, but it is a wishfull thinking at this point.
BTW, im not suprised by Vega 7 @1.9ghz perf... i already knew that Vega 8 on 3200G needs about 1.6Ghz to more or less match Vega 11 at stock. So that Vega 7 performance is what i was expecting actually. Dont forget that i used a 2200G then a 3200G for a year for gaming whiout a dGPU, i know very well what Vega 8 can do when overclocked, and yes it is a lot. This is part of the reason why i said the 4600G should be the one closer to 3400G pricing.
