AMD (Advanced Micro Devices), the US-based semiconductor company, has rolled out 2 Ryzen Desktop chips named as AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with in-built graphics models of Radeon Vega for a price tag of $99 and $169 respectively. The firm is stating it to be the most powerful graphics in the world on a desktop chip.
The duo arrives with enhanced technology of AMD SenseMI that is claimed to allow reduced power employment at reduced memory latencies and higher frequencies. Apart from this, the new APUs also back Precision Boost 2. It is a multi-core driving algorithm that is claimed to allow greater frequencies in real-world and gaming applications.
As per the firm, the Ryzen 5 2400G chip gives the identical performance of graphics in a sole chip as the Intel Core i5-8400(price tag of $199) paired with NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 (price tag of $89) discrete gaming GPU. AMD has also stated that this processor give almost 156% additional graphics and almost 21% more performance of the system in comparison to the Intel Core i5-8400 and almost 39% faster performance for graphics when over clocked.
Similar to the other Desktop processors of AMD Ryzen, Ryzen Desktop APUs are open for performance tuning of DRAM, CPU, and GPU settings via the over clocking utility of AMD Ryzen Master. In addition, the Ryzen Desktop APUs backs the similar Socket AM4 framework as that of Ryzen Desktop CPUs. This means that the chips are well-matched with the current AM4 bionetwork of more than 120 motherboards, and will need just a BIOS update.
Speaking on the roll out, general manager and senior vice president at AMD for Computing and Graphics Business Group, Jim Anderson said, “When we rolled out our first Ryzen chips a year back, we started driving competition and innovation all over the PC segment.”
