    Ryzen 2400G reviewed: Not bad for 1280x720*

      *If you can live with medium to low detail levels and a resolution more suited for 2008 than 2018, and the fact AMD could have designed a faster chip but didn't.

       

      But the kinds of people who will be buying this chip are not people who will be playing most of these games, they'll be playing Counterstrike or something not demanding. However, it also only has 8 PCIe lanes, meaning a dedicated graphics card is not an option if you use any other PCIe device, not a particularly brilliant decision given the fact that some may be considering this $190 chip as a stepping stone to AM4 to wait out the GPU price insanity, along with the low end heatsink and non metallic TIM (really AMD?) It's in a different league than the previous generation APUs yes, and barely matches lowest end dedicated cards yes, but its a lot of tradeoff to axe it down to 8 PCIe lanes, a fact I'm willing to bet on will become a nightmare on this forum in the months to come.
