When AMD launched Raven Ridge back in February, we awarded both their Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G OC3D Value for Money awards (full review link). On the CPU side, both processors offered performance improvements over their last-generation counterparts while also adding Radeon Vega graphics into the mix, providing a lot of value for money for budget gamers. 

Since launch, it seems like AMD has decreased the retail price of both of these APUs, with the Ryzen 3 2200G selling at between £79.99 and £84.98 while the Ryzen 5 2400G sells for around £128.99 today. This pricing change makes the Ryzen 3 2200G £5-10 cheaper than it was at launch, with the Ryzen 5 2400G seeing a steeper price decrease of around £21. These two CPUs were priced at £89.99 and £149.99 respectively upon release. 

We have checked several major UK components retailers, all of which use these reduced prices for Raven Ridge, providing a lot more value for money for consumers.

It is encouraging to see AMD lower the price of their Raven Ridge series APUs so quickly, providing PC gamers with another low-cost avenue into the market. While the Vega integrated graphics are nowhere near as powerful as today's dedicated offerings, they offer a great starting point into PC gaming, especially if you are willing to overclock your system a little. 

We have plans to release more Raven Ridge content in the near future, including a look at modern gaming titles and how far we can push this unit in some of today's most demanding releases.
