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.

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.
An 8 threads APU is the perfect solution for rpcs3, where you need both high thread count and a good IGP. It's a weird case, as the real PS3 shares half the RAM with the GPU and CPU, when emulating on an dedicated GPU, you have the PCI-Express+IMC+RAM link overhead, that is not a problem with an IGP.

Enjoy your Persona 5 at 4k.

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.
I think the Vega with HBM(integrated) is reserved for Intel exclusively. Also HBM would make these APUs very expensive and miss the 170$ target for Ryzen 5 class price, maybe if AMD decides to launch a APU in Ryzen 7 family with more powerful GPU then would like to see HBM on that chip. It certainly looks like AMD is targeting Radeon 550 or 560 class performance which will make these APU very attractive for entry level PC builds.

OH, I have such a headache
Ryzen 3 1300x complete waste of money.
