    I was expecting overclocking of the graphics part too. Even amd put out some benchmarks with gpu and memory overclocking

    I would say an A8 7600 + SSD + cheap DDR3 is the best office PC (fast enough for high quality videos, Mobas if needed). Now if you wanna play more recent games or a bit older games with more eye candy., the 2200G is no brainer

    I play CSGO@ 1280x1024 resolution 4:3 aspect ratio and high quality settings. I think most of pros are playing CSGo at thos settings, to be honest....
    This 2400G would be perfect for that resolution and competitive gaming.
    I have AOC 27" 1440p 144Hz Freesync monitor, for information and Ryzen 5 1600 and GTX770 2Gb. But i could honestly get by with that 2400G and no GTX770 for playing CSGO.

    Here is another question:
    Will Freesync work with this integrated VEGA GPU?

    Edit: Yes, Freesync is supported!

    Yes, but one of the things I learned during that discussion is that there are gamers out there who prefer to game at lower resolutions for maximum frame rates (FYI, I was one of those who only cared for higher resolutions, so this was a leaning experience for me). Also, there are many casual gamers who game on mediocre hardware and at low settings - my sister still plays The Sims 3 and does so on a very under-powered system (noticeably choppy). I recently put together a system that was capable of mining (at her request), but she also uses it for gaming and she was amazed at the speed of the GTX 1080 that I put in there.

    Very nice CPU for an entry system, congrats to AMD. But i´m more interested in the mobile parts.

    mmm... I would wager No ;)

    Because CSGO is HOR+ game. So with 16:9 you get the same vertical component like with 4:3, while benefiting from expanded Horizontal component


    At first I thought you were sarcastic :)
    Well yeah, 720p is quite usable with some olden games and it can be used to fix issues with tiny UI.

    Also, 720p x 2 = 1440p, so 720p might(?) look more natural on 1440 screen than say 1080p.
    Or that issue does not exist anymore with modern panels, because I've never noticed image quality issues while scaling down from my 1440p.

    I´d have liked to see more relevant games like witcher 3/doom instead of those, f1-tomb raider-deus ex don´t cut it (more name than game) :-\

    I was not kidding :) Resolution blurring is not as much noticeable due to modern AA. But on system which struggles with AA, it is better to have bigger and sharper pixels.
    (And that old school feel.)

    But, Thing is, that I do have 1080p screen. And likely would use 1080p with 2400G, it would be just fine. Funny thing is use of such system, and components to fit that use.
    Right now, I use hot swap position for HDD/SSDs. There MBs have M2 slot. Thinking like: "Should I buy faster M2. and smaller case? Or should I save by using bit bigger case + SSD + HDD?"
    Robert Hallock was just now online, building 2400G system... Big one I must say. This thing can easily fit into 25x20x10cm case. (More like a Box.)

    Not really, Coffee-i3 is just a bit faster and has 91W stock TDP at same price. If someone is considering dGPU, then Ryzen 5 1600 costs just $20 more. Anyone going for dGPU should not consider Coffee-i3 nor 2400G.

    But funny thing... I was checking one of shops which 'encourages' people to buy by showing number of other people having same product open.
    i3-8350K - 66 people ; Ryzen 5 2400G - 1488 people.

    would be cool to see how it does at an intermediate resolution like 1600x900, i'd imagine 1366x768- 1600x900 will be the sweet spot for these apus.

    I know of a few people that would have their gaming needs met very well by this APU. I'm far pickier, but many people only play older/simpler games or just plain don't care if they play on Medium graphics settings or Ultra.

    I noticed that DotA 2's Display Mode was set to Windowed when benchmarked. Wouldn't this degrade performance VS using Exclusive Fullscreen?

    Well, it seems the mining craze is kind of forcing people to go for the APU instead and wait some months ;)

    You know I've read how the 2200 is such good value and the 2400 is overpriced. Not just in your article, either. I've read it numerous times. A trip to Amazon and Newegg though and guess which one is sold out? The 2400.

    It's always the people who aren't the target audience for these products that state this though. The people I've read on the forums who are genuinely excited about these products are fairly unanimous in their desire for the 2400. People want these because they are the best performing APU available. And they are willing to pay extra for the top model.

    MB + 2*4GB RAM + SSD/M2 + mITX Case + PSU => price difference from 2200G to 2400G is not very visible anymore.
