AMD Ryzen CPUs are the successful launch for the company since 2017 which completely change the AMD’s image in front of the consumer but these good chips lack one thing, the good graphics inside them, though they have a good processing power in them but don’t have anything to display. So all Ryzen CPU need a Discrete graphics card for display content in monitor until 12 February, the launch of Ryzen APU’s for desktops
Ryzen CPU with VEGA graphics (Ryzen APU) is now officially launched by AMD for Desktops. Here the new AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G are first models in a Ryzen generation and feature integrated Radeon Vega graphics processors. AMD hopes to target entry-level users and is promising smooth gaming experiences at full-HD in the latest games, using low to medium settings.
The Ryzen 3 2200G has four physical cores without multi-threading, a base speed of 3.5GHz, and a boost speed of 3.7GHz. The Ryzen 5 2400G also has four cores but multi-threading is enabled allowing for eight threads. The base speed is 3.6GHz while the boost speed is 3.9GHz. In terms of graphics capabilities, the Ryzen 3 2200G has eight Radeon Vega compute units running at 1100MHz, while the Ryzen 5 2400G has eleven running at 1250MHz. Both models have 4MB of L3 cache, and officially support up to DDR4-2933 RAM. Both also have 65W TDP ratings and come with AMD’s Wraith Stealth cooler in the box. As with all Ryzen CPUs, these new models are unlocked and overclockable. Both processors codenamed ‘Raven Ridge’ can be used by the same existing 300 series motherboard, for the old 300 series motherboard just need one BIOS update only.
The Ryzen 3 2200G, users should be able to build a low-cost PC and still play games at medium to low settings. AMD claims 52fps in Battlefield One, 56fps in Overwatch (low), 45fps in Rocket League, 87fps in Skyrim, and 74fps in DOTA 2. For the Ryzen 5 2400G, AMD says users can expect 52fps in Battlefield One, 49fps in Overwatch (medium), 49fps in Rocket League, 96fps in Skyrim, and 31fps in The Witcher 3. AMD also points out that these new processors support AMD’s Radeon technology including Freesync.
The Ryzen 5 2400G AMD claims the performance is equal to Intel’s Core i5 8400 CPU with Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 Graphics Card, at much lower price graphics performance is purportedly 156 percent better than Intel’s integrated GPU on its own, and general system performance is also 21 percent better, according to AMD. the new Ryzen 3 2400G, which is officially priced at Rs. 7,290 (plus 18 percent GST) in India. The Ryzen 5 2400G is priced at Rs. 10,990 (plus 18 percent GST).
The new Ryzen 3 and 5 processors with integrated graphics will be sold in retail boxes with silver strips running across the top to differentiate them from standard CPUs. In contrast to Intel’s strategy of integrating graphics processors into all its mainstream CPUs, there will be no Ryzen 7 models with integrated graphics, at least in this generation. AMD believes that those in the market for high-end CPUs will want a powerful graphics card anyway.
