Ryzen 3 2200g not performing in Doom and Wolfenstein

Discussion created by humpbackwhale on Aug 4, 2019

I knew that the Ryzen 3 2200g, being a budget gaming APU, was not one that could run all games well or even at a  playable framerate. So I only spend money on games that can run on my computer, and that means scrolling through countless benchmarks online. I did so with the 2016 Doom and the new Wolfenstein games and concluded that I would first play The Old Blood, after seeing that both of these would perform well and at low settings could even reach 60fps, and this was the case in all benchmarks including ones with more and better RAM, or a better motherboard and ones with less or worse RAM I bought them but could get a maximum of 5-10 fps on doom at the lowest possible setting without going 4:3 and the lowest setting on the menu of old blood gave 3 fps. I don't know what I did wrong, I assembled the computer following the tutorial by Tech Deals, he gave it better and more RAM but everything else relevant was the same but I went with a better power supply for future proofing, and the benchmarks he did gave 60 - 70fps on both games. I don't know what to do.

My Specs:

Ryzen 3 2200g

Vega 8 with 2gb VRAM assigned in the BIOS

4gb + 4gb 2400mHz RAM

A320m Pro VD/S Motherboard

500w power supply (Locally bought, probably a cheap and non-actually-existent company made)

1tb Old Seagate Mechanical Hard Drive, too lazy to check the model number because I know it's not very relevant, don't try to fool me. It's probably 3-4 years old.

Side Note: Most other games either perform equally or better than the benchmarks done by Tech Deals or anyone else really. Some games perform worse but at a marginal level, nothing 2xMSAA can't fix.
