[Article] AMD Ryzen 5 2400G preview: Giving discrete GPUs a run for their money

AMD's Raven Ridge APUs are the first to integrate its Radeon RX Vega graphics on the same chip. But just how big a leap forward is this for integrated graphics?

I and the other guys at Typhoon systems have been playing around with them APUs for a bit

Let's just say they are very impressive for integrated graphics, good for those who need a cheap and cheerful esports machine on the dirt cheap.

One thing i can say about the Vega graphics in the APUs is that they love dual-channel fast DDR4 much like the Ryzen CPUs

Supposedly, it is actually capable of being overclocked heavily as well but might be patched to remove that unintended functionality .

The author already suggests its timekeeping bug with sleep after the comments came in.

Basically the precision timer makes the OS think time is passing slower. It's been here since the first Ryzen. Not that it's doing more work in reality. Even hwbot banned Ryzen on certain benchmarks as a result unfortunately.

I feel this is even more so for an APU. Any good graphics will certainly appreciate faster memory and since in this case is also shared with the Cpu.

It's actually considerably warmer than the older generation ryzen counterpart. Cause it is using normal tim than soldered tim. But its not those alarmingly high temps considering the lower tdp which was reported to be 45w to 65w range.

But I got the opposite conclusion leh... I was thinking of getting the 2400G at first. But the reviews all show a mere 5-10% advantage of the 2400G over the 2200G.

was thinking of cheaping out and grab the 2200G but after reading some reviews

yep. 2400G no brainer bah
