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

3DMARK Time Spy

Again with 3DMARK Time Spy, we have decided to neglect the benchmark's final score, focusing instead on the benchmarks individual graphics and CPU test suites. Here we see once again that the boost to 3200MHz memory does deliver both CPU and GPU performance improvements, as well as a notable performance gap between the Ryzen 3 2200G and the Ryzen 5 2400G.  

When looking at Standard Time Spy test scores, we can see that in the benchmark's CPU scores we see a boost of 3.6% and 5.6% on the Ryzen 3 2200G and the Ryzen 5 2400G respectively when jumping from 2400MHz DDR4 to 3200MHz DDR4 memory. Moving on to Time Spy's GPU scores we can see more substantial performance boosts of around 8.4% and 10% for each respective CPU. 

Looking at Time Spy Extreme, we can see a very similar jump in performance for both APUs, though it remains to be seen whether or not the same principle applies to actual games. 

It is clear that memory speed is having a larger impact on AMD's 2400G, which makes sense given the increased number of CPU threads and Vega stream processors that need to be fed using the same levels of memory bandwidth.

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
