I don't think any price drop on any G series models will move these from the stores . These CPU types are e-waste.

No PCIE 4.0
x16 for dedicated GPU ? It might be x8 but too lazy to check
zen3 with poor boost freq and cache removed = trash performance for later GPU upgrades
old GPU arch from decades ago.....

The arch isn't decades old. Vega is only 4yrs old. The performance is just fine, as you can see here.

1440p, or 4k, the gap would be even smaller, or even non existent. Gaming rigs have 0 need for PCI-E gen 4.0.

Whatever. You can't trust everything you read on the Internet.

No PCIE 4.0: does not mean PCIe Gen 3 is suddenly bad. In fact, a vast array of PCIe cards are Gen 3 x16 or Gen 3 x8 and their performance has not changed one iota with the release of Gen 4.

x16 for dedicated GPU ? It might be x8 but too lazy to check: this is not related to the CPU, but to the motherboard. Example: the ASRock B550M-ITXac offers x8 + x8 and x8 + x4 + x4 bifurcation in the BIOS (see https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/B550M-ITXac/index.asp) . You then need to use a passive PCIe board bifurcation (not difficult to find pretty good ones with some googling or binging, see for example https://c-payne.com/collections/pcie-x8x8-bifurcation-pcbs). In addition, yes the AMD 5000g series offers 16 lanes, contrary to the previous versions 3000g and 4000g which offered 8 lanes.

zen3 with poor boost freq and cache removed = trash performance for later GPU upgrades: yes, Zen 3 is so trash that nobody buys it *&^%$#@!

old GPU arch from decades ago: yet Vega iGPU leaves Intel UHD Graphics 770 in the dust, so one must conclude that Intel UHD is from centuries ago.

I setup and am using a home NAS and VM Server with:
  • AMD 5700g (new)
  • 32GB memory (new)
  • ASRock B550M-ITXac configured x8 + x8 (new)
  • Mellanox ConnectX-3 Pro (used from data center via eBay)
  • Adaptec 8835 (used from data center via eBay)
  • 8 x HGST He8 in RAID10 (used from data center via eBay)
  • Custom case built from scratch
  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS server
Power consumption
  • Idle: 26W
  • Highest during boot: 80W
  • Running benchmarks (e.g. Phoronix Test Suite): up to 80W
This provides me with a ~30TB NAS over 40 GbE (IPoIB) (as well as 1GbE and 2.5GbE for stations or SBC without an IB card) for a total cost of $2753.33.

Samba transfer samples with IPoIB:
  • 1 GB (B not b) file in 0.492 second,
  • 2 GB file in 0.961 second,
  • 4 GB file in 1.879 seconds,
  • 40 GB file in 49.211 seconds.
  • Folder containing 500 files for a total of 1.6GB (100 files of 1,2,3,4,5 MB) in 1.7 seconds.
For people working with large files: media creation, databases, VMs, backups, video server, etc this is heaven (not e-waste...)

Try to match this with a QNAP, Synology, Asustor or TerraMaster solution for the same price with the same feature set.

If you want to write an alternative fact hatchet job post, at least try to find better arguments because what you wrote is just ridiculous.
