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

PCMARK 10

PCMARK 10 benchmarking utility that is designed to deliver users a selection of scores that can be used to judge a system's performance under specific workloads, ranging from day-to-day office workloads, digital content creation and other productivity tasks. 

In the past, many of these workloads were entirely dependant on your system's CPU, leaving graphics cards irrelevant outside of specific GPU accelerated workloads.  Today, graphics cards can have a considerable impact on system performance, though not as much as AMD previously expected with their "The Future is Fusion" mantra when creating their previous Bulldozer+Radeon GPU iterations. While colossal gaming GPUs are not necessary for a lot of standard PC workloads, a competent integrated graphics processor is beneficial, especially in low-cost systems. 

We can see below that the Ryzen 5 2400G offers a notable performance boost over the 2200G, with both the APU's stronger graphics core and SMT enabled Ryzen CPU cores providing it with a 10% performance advantage when looking at the benchmark's final score. 

These scores cannot be directly compared to our other PCMARK 10 results, as we usually test our systems with a GTX 980 GPU, providing a stable baseline for processors that do not include dedicated graphics. Today we decided to do things a little differently, as Raven Ridge's integrated graphics are the major selling point of this processor.

You can look at our older PCMARK 10 results here, though it is worth noting that the 2200G sits remarkably close to its last-generation counterpart, the Ryzen 3 1200, despite the fact that it has a GTX 980 for GPU acceleration, with only a performance gap of fewer than 300 points between them.

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.Quote

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.Quote

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.Quote
