AMD Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 "Raven Ridge" PIB Packages Pictured

Here are the first pictures of AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G "Raven Ridge" desktop APU retail PIB (processor in box) packages. The PIB package includes the APU itself, an AMD Wraith Stealth cooling solution, a case-badge, and some documentation. These packages are visually distinguishable from Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 "Summit Ridge" CPU PIB packages, with a chrome silver band heading the front face, which has prominent AMD Radeon Vega Graphics branding. It keeps up with the APUs' full retail names: "AMD Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega 8 graphics" and "AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with Radeon Vega 11 graphics." The Ryzen 3 2200G is expected to be priced (MSRP) at USD $99.99, and the Ryzen 5 2400G at $169.99; both parts launch in the retail channel on the 12th of February. The two have been extensively detailed in our older article.

I will wait to see some overclocking result.

"AMD Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega 8 graphics" and "AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with Radeon Vega 11 graphics." - Quite mouthful name.

That 2200G looks really tempting. Now, if I had a need for that I'd get it no question.

Not to mention you can only have one per system. Maybe if they had Cluster CPU motherboards with 12 slots it might be possible. After all, the built in GPU does have pretty good Performance per Watt.

I wanna see how far the iGPU can be pushed with OC.
I'm really, really intrigued by this

lol more people mine with laptops than these, guranteed. And that's almost 0.

I am eager to see the benchmark for the first APU-lineup.
Couldn't anyone tell if AMD plans to release 6C12T or 8C16T ones?

AFAIK there won't be more cores than four. They have only one CCX.

I see.
Would be cool if they could push out a bit stronger APUs in the end.

I hope not , 4c/8t is more than enough for these types of products. I don't want them to end up wasting precious die space on all their products like Intel does (granted they wouldn't be as shitty but still).

What about RR 7 or will the desktop APU lineup be restricted to Ryzen 5 branding?

TR4. If there will be ever a point in this.

Yes, because there are no more than 4 CPU cores, 4 MB L3 cache, and 11 NGCUs on the Raven Ridge silicon. Unless one of these can beat the Ryzen 5 1600 in CPU performance, it can't graduate to Ryzen 7 branding.

Perhaps (hypothetically), a Ryzen 7 APU would be AMD's competitor to the Core i7-8705G (a BGA MCM with a 12 nm "Zeppelin" and the same Vega dGPU found on the i7-8705G).

That's what I was thinking as well, maybe another HBM2 monster for NUC or HTPC :respect:

Actually Intel doesn't either. They have 1 or 2 chips per generation that have iGPU (I'm not 100% sure but I think there's separate 2 core chip for mobile, which would be the 2nd chip), while the rest (LCC, HCC, XCC in case of Skylake-X) don't.

Maybe even a juicy 4GB, 2.4Gbps HBM2 unit from samsung :)

I guess, but I just don't know if I should have high hopes at all.

I don't find that as a problem since Intel had dual-core i5/i7 mobile CPUs pretty damn long.

If they have HBM2 onboard they would be about as good as an RX550 based on stream processors. That's good enough for another 400-450h/s in cryptonight. Would be worth it for the base CPU in a mining build.

These APUs are shaping up to be a solution for people who either can't afford or can't find a graphics card. I have a feeling that APUs will be the future of gaming while high-end GPUs will be part of the mining-only segment, at least for those not with deep pockets.

That 2400G looks great for a mini gaming rig, especially if one prefers to play older games over newer titles.

TBF, they make 40CU APUs for consoles, AMD could make a bigger raven ridge if they wanted. Why they stopped at oddball 11 nobody knows.

Zen2 will probably bring us larger GPUs.
