AMD's Ryzen 3 2200G is the cheapest true quad-core CPU ever released. It also integrates Radeon Vega graphics with 512 shader cores and a modern video decoding acceleration engine. Given its price, this has the potential to be the CPU for system builders on a budget who also want their system to be able to handle light gaming.

These chips are primarily intended for desktop office/home workstations where a dedicated graphics card is unnecessary.
As so they are a brilliant offer because Intel has no counterpart, particularly at such low prices.

This makes more sense than the 2400G, the performance loss on graphics is small, and not everyone needs SMT. An A320 motherboard, this 2200G and some cheap 2400MHz RAM are enough for any office/media work, and is cheaper than a current Coffee Lake 8100 build.

This is insane value. I expected a larger gap between this and the 2400g in the graphics department.

@W1zzard any chance you could add bench results from something like League of Legends, Dota 2, CSGO, PUBG, Fortnite, Overwatch? Really curious how these handle popular MP games.

Considering I run Overwatch and used to play LoL on my HD7750, performance should be pretty similar. It's good enough.

I too would love too see the how the most popular MP games runs on this APU. (I have a setup), but i think alot of teenage bois will be looking for this APU as a viable option for light gaming. My sister and her husband witout consulting me bought their 10 year old son netbook for gaming o_0.

The 2200G just made the entire Coffee/Kaby i3 lineup obsolete.

No, it absolutely didn't, but... if people want to but a good CPU under 150$, they have more options now, at least.

The only issue I see with this CPU is the price of the memory. I can't conceive a new PC without at least 16 GB of RAM, and, being a Ryzen system, you really need fast memory (from what I saw in another review, 20% performance improvement from 2400 to 3200 MHz is realistic).

Currently, the cheapest 2x8GB DDR4 3200 memory kit on newegg is $190, while a 2200G kit with a Asrock A320 is $139.

I wanted to build a cheap HTPC using Ryzen, but I will just wait for the memory prices to drop.

Is there a review somewhere that's crossfiring these chips with low end gpus? Lets say something like a RX550?

I don't think we have hybrid crossfire anymore.

Hey @W1zzard, does the board let you overclock the iGPU? I wouldn't mind seeing how far you can push the iGPU on chips like these. It could also be interesting to see how memory speed impacts iGPU performance as well.
