AMD’s first Ryzen desktop processors with Radeon Vega graphics launched

US-based semiconductor company Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has launched two Ryzen Desktop processor – AMD Ryzen 5 2400G and AMD Ryzen 3 2200G – with built-in Radeon Vega graphics models at $169 and $99 respectively.
The company is claiming to be the world’s most powerful graphics on a desktop processor.

The duo comes with improved AMD SenseMI technology that is said to enable lower power usage at higher frequencies and reduced memory latencies. Besides this, the new APUs also support Precision Boost 2, a multi-core boost algorithm that is said to let higher frequencies in gaming and real-world applications.

According to the company, the Ryzen 5 2400G processor delivers the same graphics performance in a single processor as the Intel Core i5-8400($199) clubbed with NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 ($89) discrete gaming GPU. AMD has also claimed that this chipset delivers up to 156% more graphics as well as up to 21% more system performance than the Intel Core i5-8400 and up to 39% faster graphics performance when overclocked.

Commenting on the launch, Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Business Group, AMD, said “When we launched our first Ryzen processors a year ago, we began driving innovation and competition across the PC market. We remain dedicated to this mission throughout 2018, as we further strengthen our Ryzen portfolio by adding two leadership APUs designed to meet the varying needs of today’s PC users. AMD Ryzen Desktop APUs are a perfect example of the innovation we bring to market for consumer and commercial PC users. Combining our high-performance CPU and GPU architectures, this new category of Ryzen desktop processors is designed to deliver a smooth overall computing experience, as well as the ability to enjoy true 1080p HD gaming, eSports or advanced display features through the visual fidelity of the built-in Radeon Vega graphics.”
Like the other AMD Ryzen Desktop processors, Ryzen Desktop APUs are unlocked for performance tuning of CPU, DRAM, and GPU settings through the AMD Ryzen Master overclocking utility. Also, the Ryzen Desktop APUs support the same Socket AM4 infrastructure as Ryzen Desktop CPUs. Meaning that the processors are compatible with the existing AM4 ecosystem of over 120 motherboards, and will require a simple BIOS update.
