Ryzen 5 2400G not running games?!?

Question asked by 3cartea on Apr 14, 2018

Help! I finished a new budget build and it will not run games!

 

Specs:

Ryzen 5 2400G (with stock Wraith cooler)

MSI Tomahawk Plus (flashed to most recent BIOS)

G-Skill Flare X 3200 RAM

Samsung 860 M.2 SSD

Windows 10

No GPU

 

Problem:

I have downloaded and attempted to run Borderlands 2 and Tomb Raider: Anniversary. Both games will load fine until they reach the main menu then FPS drops to 1 or 2 FPS. CPU usage per MSI afterburner shows at or above 95% usage. I am running no other apps other than the game and Afterburner.I even turned off all additional video settings and set to 720p with low settings on Borderlands and the issue remained.

 

I'm at a loss, am I missing something here? Possible defective CPU?
