Benchmarks of AMD's forthcoming Ryzen APUs - Ryzen CPUs with integrated Radeon Vega graphics intended for PCs, have surfaced before the chips' planned release today.
The devices were first unveiled at the CES 2018 trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada in January and now leaked benchmarks give us a better insight into the performance users can expect of the chips ahead of their release.
The Ryzen 3 2200G - like other Ryzen 3 CPUs - will offer four cores and four threads, compared to the four cores/eight threads on offer with the Ryzen 5 2400G. The Ryzen 5 APU also has a max boost clock of 3.9GHz to to the Ryzen 3's 3.7GHz.
Both have the same six megabytes of level 2 and level 3 cache and both offer the same configurable thermal design power (cTDP) rating of between 45 and 65 watts.
The latest Ryzen 5 2400G benchmarks come from a variety of sources but can be best summarised in the YouTube video below, courtesy of 3yg.com
The following video shows 3DMark FireStrike, FireStrike Extreme, TimeSpy, Cinbench MT, World of Tanks, World of Warships and a bunch of other MMO RPG game performance on the chips.
AMD's APUs have for a number of years been a somewhat low-end alternative to Intel. However, the release of the latest Ryzen APUs should shift it upmarket somewhat, with both the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G coming with integrated Radeon RX Vega Graphics.
Speaking of which, the Ryzen 5 bears 11 graphics compute units (704 stream processors) to the Ryzen 3's eight (512 stream processors), and a higher graphics frequency of 1,250MHz to the Ryzen 3's 1,100MHz.
The devices will be available from today at prices of $99 and $169, respectively, and will also come bundled with AMD Wraith Stealth coolers.
