AMD's Vega built-in desktop APU "Ryzen 5 2400 G" & "Ryzen 3 2200 G" appeared, overwhelming the Intel product with GPU performance & price
AMD next-generation iGPU-equipped CPU (APU) announced in CES 2018Ryzen 5 2400 G"When"Ryzen 3 2200 G"Will be on sale soon. Known as the codename "Raven Ridge", the following is a summary of what has already been announced about the next-generation APU adopted the Zen architecture that was long-awaited as a consumer-oriented GPU built-in CPU.

AMD Lists Ryzen Raven Ridge Desktop APU Details
Starting with the Ryzen 7 series that appeared in 2017, AMD, which released Zen architecture products like raging, eventually releases "Ryzen 5 2400 G" and "Ryzen 3 2200 G" as long-awaited GPU built-in CPU (APU). With the introduction of APU which can be used without a graphic board, AMD CPU adopted by Zen finally cuts into the mainstream of the desktop PC for consumers.
The Ryzen 5 2400 G has 4 cores / 8 threads and the GPU has 11 CU configuration, whereas the Ryzen 3 2200 G has 4 cores / 4 threads and is divided into 8 CU configurations. Also, while the Ryzen 5/3 1000 series was the standard support up to the memory frequency DDR 4 - 2667, DDR 4 - 2 999 is supported in the Ryzen 5/3 2000 series of APU where memory frequency is more important. And the price you care about is Ryzen 5 2400 G for $ 169 (about 19,000 yen) and Ryzen 3 2200 G for $ 99 (about 11,000 yen). It will appear at a price lower than the competitor's Intel Core i 5 & Core i 3 series of the 8th generation Core processor (Coffee Lake-S).
Raven Ridge connects 4 core CCX and Vega graphics with Infinity Fabric at high speed. As APU emerges, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 will be in two models, but APU will not be released on Ryzen 7, the top 8 series of 16 threads series.
AMD appeals to have GPU performance which Ryzen 5 2400 G does not compare with its competitive Core i 5-800. According to AMD, Core i 5 - 8400 will be equal to Ryzen 5 2400 G for the first time with NVIDIA's GT 1030 low-end graphics board. In this case, it is said that it will exceed both price and watt performance.
Performance (frame rate) in major games When comparing Ryzen 5 2400 G (orange) and Core i 5 - 8400 (blue), Ryzen 5 2400 G wins in every game.
Ryzen 3 2200 G and Core i 3 - 8100 also compare competitors against the competition.
Also, with Ryzen 5 2400 G · Ryzen 3 2200 G, GPU's magnification lock is released and overclocking is possible. It seems APU seems that GPU performance will increase greatly as memory frequency increases, and it appeals that memory frequency exceeds 4000 with 3D Mark Fire Strike score at DDR 4 - 3600. According to the AMD documentation, the performance increases by about 33% with DDR 4 - 2400 and DDR 4 - 3600, so it seems preferable to use faster memory to maximize APU performance.
In the Ryzen 2000 series, "Precision Boost 2" which can boost all threads according to the number of active threads is adopted, multithreaded workload performance is improved.
In comparison of various benchmark scores, it seems that Ryzen 5 2400 G is superior in CPU performance to Ryzen 5 1400. Likewise, Ryzen 3 2200 G slightly exceeds Ryzen 3 1200 by CPU performance.
Even in benchmark tests to compare overall performance, Ryzen 5 2400 G & Ryzen 3 2200 G will deliver better performance than Intel's assumed rival model at a lower price.
Corresponding socket AM4, existing motherboard with X370 / B350 chip can also be diverted. Unlike Intel, AMD-like strong compatibility is secured.
In addition, the CPU cooler attached to the new APU's Ryzen 5 2400 G & Ryzen 3 2200 G has no LEDWraith StealthIt is said that.
For the Ryzen 2000 series, motherboards will be released from major manufacturers.
Ryzen 5 2400 G & Ryzen 3 2200 G of the GPU built-in CPU will be released on February 12, 2018.
In CES 2018, AMD CPU road map was also announced. A discrete CPU "Ryzen 2000" series that adopts an improved version of ZEN microarchitecture "ZEN +" with improved process rule from 14 nm to 12 nm is expected to appear from the top Ryzen 7 in April 2018. There is also the possibility that the appearance of the new model is near, and price revisions have already been done on some current models such as Ryzen 7 1800X. Also the design of "ZEN 2" in front of ZEN + is also completed. Beyond that, "ZEN 3" adopted by the 7 nm process is abridged.
Expectation will be increased as to how much the performance will improve by the evolution of the architecture.
