Its just a few months before AMD released a dye with Intel 8th Gen and a Vega GPU integrated to the single dye for mobile applications, mainly for its usage in laptops.Now AMD has launched Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G with integrated Vega Graphics Card.
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 Released Chips are Acceptable Alternative to The Intel Chipsets.
The new chips are based on Zen Architecture, Core Complex (CCX) is the main building block of the Architecture. The new chips match a single CCX with Vega CPU using AMD’s Infinite Fabric between them. As on the Ryzen Chips Before the Memory controllers and the I/O hubs are connected to the Infinity Fabric. In the new chips, they are joined by multimedia engines and display engine. As they are separate from the GPU, so now the processor can do things like refreshing the screen and decode motion video without having to keep the GPU portion powered up.
Both the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and AMD Ryzen 5 2400G come in two configurations of this combined die. The low-end Ryzen 3 part disables symmetric multithreading and has 8 Vega cores. The Ryzen 5 part retains the multithreading, has 11 Vega cores, and slightly higher clock speeds.
|AMD RYZEN 5 2400G||AMD RYZEN 3 2200G|
|CPU CORES||4 cores/8 threads/1 CCX||4 cores/4 threads/1 CCX|
|CPU BASE/BOOST CLOCK/MHZ||3.6/3.9||3.5/3.7|
|LEVEL 3 CACHE/MB||4|
|GPU CORES||11 (704 ALUs/44 TMUs)||8 (512 ALUs/32 TMUs)|
|PCI-E 3 LANES||x8 for GPU/x4 general/x4 chipset|
|RAM||Dual channel DDR4-2933|
|SINGLE PRECISION PERFORMANCE/TFLOPS||1.76 GPU + 0.231 CPU||1.126 GPU + 0.224 CPU|
The Chipsets don’t require a special socket motherboard to work with, they fit in normal AM4 socket motherboard.A suitable BIOS or firmware update and you are good to go.
Ryzen 3 2200 is priced at $99 and Ryzen 5 2400G is priced at $169. At this price point, the AMD processors are competing with Intel Core i3-8100 and Intel Core i5-8400, Both the Intel Chips have the same UHD 630 as an integrated graphics processor.
The new chips don’t offer the same sizable core and thread-count advantage. Rather, their big advantage comes from their GPU, with the Vega cores being faster than Intel’s Gen 9 GPU cores.
Talking about gaming performance, none of these chips offers consistent, playable frame rates unless you cut the resolution or graphical quality (or both). The Ryzens with Vega get much closer than integrated GPUs have ever managed, but with 1080p at 60 fps, a reasonable minimum for desktop gaming, and if you are a casual gamer you’re still going to have to look at discrete GPUs. These chips are for people who don’t do GPU- intensive task or for budget builders.
