AMD’s first desktop PC chips with Zen architecture and integrated Radeon graphics are coming soon and AMD revealed a few details earlier this month. Now the company is providing more specs for the upcoming Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G processors, which should hit the streets in a few months for about $99 and $169, respectively.

Both chips are 65 watt processors with support for dual-channel DDR4-2933 memory, 6MB of cache, AMD Precision Boost technology, and Radeon Vega graphics.

They’re also both quad-core processors, but only the Ryzen 5 2400G supports hyperthreading, which is just one of the features that makes it the more powerful (and expensive) option.

Here’s a run-down of what AMD’s first Ryzen G-series desktop chips has to offer:

Ryzen 5 2400GRyzen 3 2200G
 CPU Cores / Threads 4 / 8  4 / 4
 Base / Boost clock 3.5 GHz / 3.9 GHz 3.6 GHz / 3.7 GHz
 GPU Radeon Vega 11 Radeon Vega 8
 Graphics Compute Units 11 8
 Max GPU speed 1.25 GHz 1.1 GHz
 Stream Processors 704 512
 Cache 6MB 6MB
Price $169 $99

AMD says the new chips should be competitive with Intel’s 8th-gen Core i3 and Core i5 desktop processors while selling for lower prices and featuring higher-performance integrated graphics… although you’re probably still going to want a discrete graphics card if you plan to do any serious gaming.

The new chips should work with current AM4 motherboards.

The Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G should be available in mid-February.

  1. I would love to see both of these in AIO desktop solutions….did I just use the word solutions?? *headslap*

  2. I’m really interested in the Ryzen 3 model. I’m hoping the GPU is a decent performer. If I could make a decent $300 PC for running emulators (up to Dreamcast), that would be a good CPU for it.

    Yes I know the 8th Gen Quad-core i3 lineup could easily do this too, but the reason the new Ryzen iGPU models look attractive to me is that the motherboards for the 8th gen Intel CPUs are about $50 more expensive, the i3-8100 is more expensive, and there is a chance the AMD will have a better GPU

    1. If you look at the source, there are some AMD slides on perf (grain of salt and all)
      Ofc the AMD is also unlocked and they’ll stick with the socket for a while. Maybe do wait to see the new chipsets in April, not even clear if there is only x470 or they update the lower end chipsets too.

      1. Ah, yeh it looks good enough for me. Keep in mind, the appeal for me isn’t just performance, but rather the overall value when built in a Mini-ITX package.

        It looks like the Ryzen 3 model has around double the performance compared to the i3-8100

        1. Yeah I get it you want something like the 99$ 2200G, a 60-80$ mobo and it’s a pretty neat little PC.Too bad RAM prices are nuts and won’t come down this year, that’s gonna hurt.

  3. Not quite impressed.
    I was hoping AMD was going to introduce its Vega integrated graphics into the Ryzen 2200, 2400, 2600, 2700 desktop CPU series.

    Then leave the Ryzen 2200X (4/4), 2400X (4/8), 2600X (6/12), 2800X (8/16) desktop CPU series without the iGPU and without a Box Cooler. Maybe the X-variants could bump prices up like +10% more, but be better binned version for people looking to get better efficiency and performance.

    This strategy up there just muddies the water. I know there are plenty of people who want to build a 6-core or an 8-core system and don’t want to shell out extra for a dedicated GPU, so they’re completely left out of options again.

  4. The point is that you buy these if you don’t need a discrete GPU. If you need a discrete GPU you buy a SKU without integrated and more CPU cores.

    The GPU is 3-4 times faster than Intel’s and it’s unlocked, might have some extra room there to 1.4-1.5GHz.
    The 99$ price point is very aggressive, first time a quad with a high perf core reaches below 100$ as Intel has been stuck at around 180$ for the cheapest quads for almost 10 years and were forced by AMD to go lower with Coffee Lake.

    1. Pseudo-edit
      One of AMD’s slides has the GPU overclocked to 1675MHz so quite a nice gain

  5. Really looking forward to these. Onboard graphics are plenty for my needs, and so it’s been annoying that a Ryzen build would require me to spend an extra ~$35 on something like a Radeon HD 5450.
