AMD Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G vs. Intel and Nvidia

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.

AMD Ryzen vs. Intel Coffee Lake: Full System Comparison

fore1gn

A Ryzen CPU and an Intel CPU. Which system is a better value if we compare the full PC?

In the past few months, we have written comparison after comparison of AMD’s very successful Ryzen CPU series to Intel’s ultra-fast 8th generation Coffee Lake chips. (For a quick recap, here are a few: Ryzen 7 1700 vs Core i7-7700K and vs Core i7-8700K, Ryzen 5 1600 vs Core i5-7600K and vs Core i5-8600K.)

These processors are often comparable in terms of price and performance, but building a complete PC is a different story. In this article I will show the differences between two comparable Intel and AMD Ryzen systems, based on the i7-8700K and Ryzen 7 1700 respectively.

Intel Core i5-8600K vs Ryzen 5 1600 vs Ryzen 7 1700 vs. i5-7600K

 

The Intel Coffee Lake Core i5-8600K

With this month’s Coffee Lake release, Intel finally decided to increase the amount of CPU cores they offer to mainstream consumers. The company’s newest Core i5 CPU, the i5-8600K has been upgraded to 6 cores from last generation’s 4-core i5-7600K. In theory, that should mean significantly better multithreaded performance in addition to Intel’s typical single-threaded dominance. But how does the 8600K compare to the previous generation, as well as the price-equivalent chips from AMD?

Intel Core i7-8700K vs AMD Ryzen 7 vs Intel Core i7-7700K

Intel’s Coffee Lake CPUs are part of the 8th generation of processors.

Last week, Intel released their Coffee Lake-based 8th generation CPUs. Intel has been usually refreshing their processors at the beginning of each year, but this one happened a few months early. (Earlier in July, Intel’s X299-based Skylake-X CPUs also experienced a rushed launch.)

It seems that AMD’s Ryzen CPUs really did light a fire under Intel, with the underdog AMD slowly earning the hearts of both reviewers and customers around the globe. But how does Intel’s newest Coffee Lake mainstream flagship CPU, the i7-8700K, compare to AMD’s Ryzen 7 processors, as well as the previous generation’s i7-7700K?

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X vs Intel Core i9-7900X

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU

This year is a good one for the AMD CPU department. Starting from March, AMD has been throwing one punch after another at Intel with their Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5, and Ryzen 3 line-up of desktop processors.

Last week, the final uppercut has been struck with the Threadripper line-up of high-end desktop (HEDT) CPUs, going up to 16 cores and 32 threads in one package. Let’s look at what different reviewers have to say about the Threadripper 1950X and 1920X while comparing it to Intel’s current highest-tier CPU, the Core i9-7900X.

AMD Ryzen 3 1300X & 1200 vs Intel Core i3 7300 & 7100

Ryzen 7 released nearly half a year ago in March, with Ryzen 5 coming out a little while later. AMD has finally unleashed their lowest tier Ryzen 3 processors: the Ryzen 3 1300X, coming in at $140, and Ryzen 3 1200 at $110. Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 are considered the better buy for the general user, unless their desire is gaming and only gaming, in which case an i7-7700K is the better choice. It is now Ryzen 3’s turn to face off against Intel’s similarly priced dual-core hyper-threaded Core i3 CPUs.
