AMD & # 39; s latest Ryzen APUs, a.k.a. Accelerated Processing Units come with surprisingly powerful graphics – especially the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G. But how well do these chips play the latest games?
WccfTech has given us a good idea, just compared the processor with the latest beta test of the upcoming Battlefield 5 first-person shooter (FPS), and the results are amazing.
By running the game with a resolution of 1080p and medium graphic details, the processor can produce surprisingly consistent 30 frames per second (fps) in live gameplay. That is the generally minimal acceptable frame rate for video games nowadays.
In the video, WccfTech brings the resolution scale down to 75% and the chip immediately sees a profit of about 15 fps for a total of 45 fps on average.
Although the gold number for video games is 60 fps, it is often a lofty goal for even the newest devotee graphic cardsSo these numbers are quite amazing for a video game that has not even ended.
There is much more optimization to be done at the level of the game developer, so it is possible that we will see even better performance of this processor while playing the final release.
Now it has to be said that – again – 30 fps with average graphical detail is not the optimal way to play the latest FPS game. However, it is a completely acceptable way to play the game for regular gamers.
The AMD Ryzen 5 2400G costs just $ 169 (£ 149, AU $ 269). Compared to even the entry Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti at $ 189 (about £ 145, AU $ 265) or AMD Radeon RX 460 at $ 100 (about £ 77, AU $ 140), which still has to rely on general processors to to work, the cost savings are crystal clear for regular gamers.
If you're preparing for the upcoming PC season at the end of the year, you might be advised to guess that you buy a graphics card if you do not have the best.
