AMD Raven Ridge Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G Review



AMD is back in the APU game, combining Ryzen and Vega into a single product that packs a lot of budget performance.

What is the test bench setup?

HDMI 2.0? I got a HDMI only 4K TV. The 2200G will be the cheapest solution by far, that supports hdmi 2.0. The only native alternative is 1030/rx550, which is almost alone the cost of the 2200G.

Test bench setup is on page 2 at the bottom.

HDMI 2.0 will be down to what your motherboard supports, as some AM4 motherboards only have HDMI 1.4 as far as I am aware.

Thanks. The test bench probably has a typo, that confused me on the MB:

"AMD Ryzen 3 2200G & Ryzen 5 2400G
ASUS Prime Z370-PLUS
G.Skill Flare X 3200MHz memory
Corsair RM1000i
Corsair MP500 512GB
Corsair H110i GT
Windows 10"

That probably should be x370-PLUS, Z370-PLUS? Anyway, i missed it down there, so thanks for answering.

As for what motherboards supports, the specs are a mess:

X370 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM

"-1 x HDMI™ 2.0 port, supports a maximum resolution of [email protected] (1)
-1 x DisplayPort, supports a maximum resolution of [email protected] (2)

(1) Only support when using a 7th Gen A-series/ Athlon™ processors
(2) Maximum shared memory of 2048 MB"


What does that mean?

GA-AX370-Gaming K7

" Integrated Graphics Processor:
1. 1 x HDMI port, supporting a maximum resolution of [email protected] Hz
* Support for HDMI 1.4 version.
2. Maximum shared memory of 2 GB

* Actual support may vary by CPU."


These specs can actually mean a lot of different things. Like being written for the Athlon CPUs available at MB launch or like for the K7, that they maybe but not clearly only support HDMI 1.4. It is clearly CPU dependent, and Athlons only support HDMI 1.4, so what is the story with the MSI board? The HDMI on the MSI is after all only available using an last gen Athlon?

No body seems to know, but a lot of people are opinionated. I would really appreciate it, if you could try it out.

As for HDMI 1.4, max refresh rate for 2D is 24Hz.

Sorry, typo we used the ASUS Prime B350 Plus.

I will get Tom to send a few questions AMD's way. See if we can get some answers for the HDMI port stuff alongside a few other things we want to be answered.

Very impressive. I don't see much reason to recommend the 1300x or 1500x anymore. You basically pay the same amount and get a free igpu but better memory support.

For 720p gaming this is perfect.
For 1080p Esport games it will shred them. Still not AAA capable really for most games but still it would be around console levels which says a lot about how far we have come.

AMD and their Ryzen architecture is really turning the company around.

Great CPU, not so great APU. I know even *I* said not to expect too much but I gotta admit I was expecting more than this. Yes the GPU on it kills Intel but IMO not by enough. Some one pointed out today that you can get a Pentium and 1030 for around the same price that does the same thing. Now sure, Pentium won't be as good going into the future.

IDK man, AMD have all of that technology and we get this.. It's barely an APU.
