AMD Ryzen 5 2400G review

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G review

The low-priced processor market has often required consumers to forgo solid graphics performance, as the built-in graphics units included in such chips typically fall far short of the required horsepower for even a cheap gaming PC. Commenting on the launch, Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Business Group, AMD, said "When we launched our first Ryzen processors a year ago, we began driving innovation and competition across the PC market". Meanwhile, the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G is equipped with 4 cores and 4 threads (no SMT) in a single CCX having a 3.5GHz base clock and a 3.7GHz boost.

Benchmarks of AMD's forthcoming Ryzen APUs - Ryzen CPUs with integrated Radeon Vega graphics intended for PCs, have surfaced before the chips' planned release today. That combination costs nearly $300 while AMD's new chip is priced at $169.

Thankfully, AMD is finally delivering the goods with APUs not only based on Ryzen, but also featuring AMD Vega graphics built right into chip, led by the Editor's Choice award-winning AMD Ryzen 5 2400G. These numbers match up with the number of compute units in integrated GPU, respectively.


The chips are available today, and computer makers are expected to launch PCs with the chips in the coming months. That said, should ASRock's listing be true, then we can expect AMD to release even more Raven Ridge APUs this year - this time aimed at budget-conscious consumers. AMD Ryzen Desktop APUs are a ideal example of the innovation we bring to market for consumer and commercial PC users. The new APUs also support Precision Boost 2, a multi-core boost algorithm that enables higher frequencies in gaming and real-world applications. So far, the desktop lineup consists of the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G, both 65W variants. And, with their built-in graphics, these new processors are compatible with Radeon FreeSync technology and compatible displays. Whereas we were lucky to run Rocket League at over 10 frames-per-second (fps) at 640 x 480 resolution with every graphical setting turned all the way down on an Intel Core i5-8400, we had an absolutely playable 30fps experience on the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with the game set to a 1080p resolution and high-quality settings.
