AMD Raven Ridge Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G Review
Published: 16th February 2018 | Source: AMD | Price: |
In Blender, we can see the merits of high core count CPUs, especially in our 4K test that can take multiple hours to complete on low-end setups. To be honest, we didn't expect much from these two budget quad-core offerings, though to say the least AMD has left us impressed.
At stock both the Ryzen 3 2200G and the 2400G offer performance levels that are not only above their previous generation counterparts but rival them when overclocked. This uplift is great news for Blender users who are looking for a low-cost CPU for budget rendering. The Ryzen 3 1200 completed our 1080p workload in less than 40 minutes; the Ryzen 3 2200G finished the same test in in a little over 26 minutes, those results speak for themselves.

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
What is the test bench setup?

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
The Video is now in the review.
Test bench setup is on page 2 at the bottom.

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