Yes, this update is late. But you know what they say: “Better…”
AMD released two new Ryzen-based APUs for the AM4 socket. They are both targeted at budget gamers who want to game for cheap, and they are both excellent in that regard.
Last year was an amazing one for AMD, with the company releasing a slew of extremely successful new CPUs based on the Zen architecture. This year is getting off to a decent start as well—with a new line of Ryzen CPUs with integrated Vega graphics processors (the R3 2200G and R5 2400G) being launched earlier this week. In this article, we will look at how well these freshly released processors fare against Intel’s integrated graphics, Nvidia’s low-budget GT 1030, and AMD’s own earlier APU integrated graphics.
Did you ever look at those entry-level CPUs and wish Intel would put in something better than their Intel HD graphics? Well, AMD have done so, and at CES they announced some new Ryzen APUs for us builders on a budget! Read on for details, benchmarks, and builds featuring the new chips.
