Product information - Ryzen 5 2400G 3,6 GHz (Raven Ridge) Socket AM4 - boxed
"Raven Ridge" is the codename AMD has bestowed on their "Zen+"-architecture based APUs from the Ryzen 2000 series. APUs (Accelerated Processing Unit) are processors with significantly greater graphics processing power. The processor concept was developed under the AMD Fusion brand name and was was originally designed for use in netbooks, fortunately for consumers however desktop APUs also happen to be ideal for low-budget gaming systems and compact multimedia PCs.

AMD Zen - Scalable Architecture Precision Boost Technology and Extended Frequency Range (XFR)
The AMD Ryzen 5 2400G is a "Raven Ridge"-generation processor with four physical cores and multi-threading to make eight virtual cores. This quad-core processor functions at a frequency of 3,6 GHz per core and is capable of utilising Precision Boost to adjust clock frequencies in real-time in 25 MHz increments, while remaining within TDP, up to a speed of 3,9 GHz.
The silicon is created using the advanced 14+ nm FinFET manufacturing process with stacked transistors (also called 3D transistors). The drastic reduction in scale frees up more space on the processor die, and this enables the integration of a total of 2 MB Level 2 Cache and 4 MB Level 3 Cache in addition to the powerful Vega 11 GPU with 704 Shaders in 11 Compute Units (CUs).
The AMD Ryzen 5 2400G is equipped with automatic Extended Frequency Range (XFR) overclocking that raises the maximum boost clock of the processor as long as the CPU remains within thermal limits and sufficient cooling is provided. As soon as the integrated CPU sensors detect additional cooling overhead, the Ryzen CPU adjusts its clock frequencies independently in accordance with the respective cooling solution provided. The AMD Ryzen APU also comes with an unlocked multiplier for manual overclocking.
AMD Vega - High Efficiency GPUs for the DesktopThe unique feature offered by the "Raven Ridge" series of APUs is the integrated Vega-based GPU architecture. This is possible thanks to the fusion of 2017's "Zen+"-based processors with GPUs based on Vega architecture to create an efficient as well as powerful APU. In addition to many optimisations compared to older AMD GPUs, Vega was introduced with four new features: a High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC), Rapid Packed Math (RPM) the Next-Gen Compute Units (NCU), a New Programmable Geometry Pipeline as well as an Enhanced Pixel Engine.
The AMD Ryzen 5 2400G APU is equipped with the Vega 11 GPU. In this version the GPU comes with eleven Compute Units and a total of 704 shaders. The GPU Base Clock is set at 1.250 MHz. The Ryzen APU supports fast DDR4 RAM up to 2.933 MHz and the integrated GPU in particular benefits from this design decision. The combination of "Zen"-CPU architecture and "Vega" GPU architecture also results in a low Thermal Design Power (TDP) of just 65 Watts.
Note: This is the boxed version including an AMD Wraith Stealth CPU cooler. The use of an AMD Ryzen APU requires an AM4 motherboard.
Attention: Motherboards using the X370, B350 and A320 chipsets may require a BIOS update to be carried out in order to operate a Ryzen 2000 series CPU/APU! Affected motherboards with older BIOS versions may otherwise not work with a Ryzen 2000 CPU/APU.
Factory compatible motherboards can be identified by a sticker bearing the inscription "AMD Ryzen Desktop 2000 Ready". Due to mixed stock supplied, we cannot guarantee that an AM4 motherboard is factory compatible with the Ryzen APUs.

That is great entry level priced stuff, that will get you going towards that mainstream level perf. The Ryzen 2000G series does, however, has fewer PCIe links available. Your graphics card will get just eight Gen 3 PCIe links, no biggy in the performance segment, but worth a note I'd say. Also, you get half the L3 cache as there is just one CCX onboard the APU. However, AMD did increase the base clock for the APUs compared to regular Ryzen, and that does show in raw CPU performance as you have been able to check out in all our benchies. People that have a need for just an Internet or HTPC will love this gear. When you build a gaming PC with a dedicated graphics solution, the sky is the limit. We do need to factor in though that for Ryzen gaming you need reasonably fast frequency memory, and that is more expensive on the total bill. I am not sure that all processors will reach 4 GHz, but the chance and likelihood they can all do an all core 3.9 GHz seems high in certainty. Combined with a B350 motherboard and SSD that leaves you with a really properly fast enough PC for your everyday workload and gaming experiences. Well done AMD, as both these processors offer proper performance for the money and overall are a terrific deal.read more...

The Ryzen 5 2400G redefines our expectations for integrated graphics. It represents a great deal for budget gaming rig builders, and the ability to purchase a single chip without the added expense of a GPU adds to the value. You can tune the CPU, memory, and Vega graphics to boost performance, and compatibility with the existing 300-series motherboard ecosystem is a plus, but you’ll need to make sure the BIOS is compatible.read more...
In my opinion, the pricing and performance of these APUs really hit a sweet spot. The APUs have a decently powerful processor at its core and decent integrated graphics to boot. Vega 8 & Vega 11 really allow these chips to shine as a single chip solution (CPU/GPU combo). The APUs allow you to build a good 720/moderate 1080 gaming PC without costing a ton of your hard earned cash.read more...
