AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G Review: Specs, Features, Price Detailed
The Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G are AMD’s two upcoming APUs (accelerated processing units), which are also ultimate choice for budget-friendly PC gaming. With that, here are these CPUs specs, features, and prices for you to know which one suits your needs.
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G Specs and Features
AMD Ryzen 5 2400G is fortified with 4 cores and 8 threads in a single CCX, having a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost that’s up to 3.9GHz. This CPU offers 11 Vega compute units having a clock up to 1250MHz. 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. It will give its users 8 Vega compute units having a clock up to 1100MHz. Both of these CPUs have the L3 cache size, 65W TDP, and can support up to DDR4 2933MHz.
It was mentioned earlier that the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G utilizes Vega 11, while the 2200G uses Vega 8. These numbers match up with the number of compute units in integrated GPU, respectively. Both of them have 16 32-bit render output units, but then the difference is that the Vega 11 has 44 texture mapping units while the Vega 8 has 32 TMUs. The new integrated graphics are established on the huge Vega 64 and 56 high-end GPUs. But then, these two were scaled down a lot and don’t utilize HBM.
There is also a bit of change on the platform since the upcoming APUs houses x8 PCI-E 3.0 for graphics cards and x8 for the so-called other devices. The said other devices are the FCH (chipset), which takes up x4, sending off x4 PCI-E 3.0 for extra connectivity. In this instance, most motherboards having an x4 PCI-E 3.0 M.2 slot will still function at x4 PCI-E 3.0.
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G Price
As for the price, the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G will be tagged at $99. On the other hand, the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G will be priced at $169. Which among the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G APUs suits you best? Please share your choice in the comment section below.
