"small premium"? What's AMD doing? I thought they'll adress the value market with the 5600G and compete with the i511400F, but that "premium" throws it out the window in terms of competition. AMD really is targeting an extremely niche market where a weak GPU is needed.

It feels like a very long time since there's been an 'entry level' dGPU as such, one that's, well, cheap and uses more like 30W than 300W
the GT 1030 still occupies that territory, you don't need newer architecture like Turing and Ampere for entry level so there isn't much need for something new.

If the 1030 keeps being the point of comparison then the APUs here do a good job of pushing out the entry level, albeit leaving a big gap up to the rest of the dGPU pack that has come out over the last however many years.
I agree it's not 'needed' as such as everyone is making money and selling everything they can make but wouldn't an equivalent under new architecture be interesting?

A AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Processor £245 or a i511400F $216 , and a 1030 GDDR5 say £90 how does that compare with the price of the 5600G?

I could not find a UK price but I can guess. $259 converts to around £190, lets add 15% and then VAT about £260. Yes it is a bit more but your going to get a lot better Gaming experience with a cleaner upgrade path.

Even if the 1030 is to be considered "entry level" it's still $140+ and not capable of 1280x720 60fps gaming, and in 2021 that really should be considered entry level, whereas the next step up, the 1050Ti, is $300+, and it is, so that's the -real- entry level card., with the mid range being the xx60 and xx70 range, and high end being xx80 and xx90.
