AMD Ryzen 5 2400GE and Ryzen 3 2200GE pop up with 35-W TDPs

AMD's Ryzen 2000-series CPUs with Vega graphics (popularly known as Ryzen APUs) offer both solid CPU performance and respectable GPU performance. It's hard to passively cool a 65-W chip in a small space, though. Builders who are extremely sensitive to fan noise should probably opt instead for one of the chips AMD just announced: the Ryzen 3 2200GE and Ryzen 5 2400GE, both spec'd with 35 W TDPs.

Ryzen 3 2200G 4/4 3.5 GHz 3.7 GHz 8 CU 1100 MHz 65W
Ryzen 5 2400GE 4/8 3.2 GHz 3.8 GHz 11 CU 1250 MHz 35W
Ryzen 5 2400G 4/8 3.6 GHz 3.9 GHz 11 CU 1250 MHz 65W

The table above compares the chips to their 65-W brothers, and the step down from 65 W to 35 W doesn't impact their clock rates as much as you might expect. In particular, the graphics clock rates are untouched on these parts—although we'd suspect the integrated Vega processors' boost behavior might be different on these chips. The CPU parts of both models take a performance hit, but mostly in their base clocks.

As you can see, the new chips have the exact same core configuration as their higher-TDP counterparts. They're almost certainly based on the same silicon running at slightly-detuned clocks and presumably a bit lower voltage. It's also possible that AMD bins these chips for efficiency to some degree. Such a chip could make a fine HTPC or a casual gaming system, given their Vega GPUs' prowess.

The only question is when these chips will be available, as they're nowhere to be seen at e-tail yet. If our past experiences with low-power AMD chips are anything to go by, you may need to snap one of these up the moment you see it for sale.

    I have an old “HTPC” with an Radeon 7850 GPU. How would the integrated GPU in the 2x00G fare against the 7850 (1024 GCN shaders)? The CPU part is no contest…

      In terms of GFLOPs, the 2400G with GPU at max boost clock has almost the exact same performance as your old 7850: ~1760GLOPs. (Raven Ridge has fewer shaders, but running at a higher clock.) But your 7850 has almost double the memory bandwidth; even with the improved memory compression in modern AMD GPUs, that’s a big gap. I’d expect the performance to be a bit worse with the 2400G, all things considered.

      Of course the 2400G has a more modern video decoder, which will help with HTPC work.

    Ho hum.

    I just might get one of these 35w TDP chips one of these days.

    Nice if the only mark them up 10-15$, but really the regular 2200G is a decent performer at 65w.

    I have a 2200G in a Thermaltake 250D on a ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac (with Wifi enabled), 16GB 3000Mhz memory, CS-M 650W PS(overkill), 128 SSD & Blu-ray along with an H110i for cooling(had it laying around so why not? and maybe I see what kind of OC a G-series can do) … in a new HTPC build.

    Even with the 3 fans (2 for the H100i), AIO pump, Wifi enabled & PS running at sub-optimal load, it only used 40w from the UPS on idle, 40-45w browsing & 81watts stressing the CPU or running UNIGINE Superposition Benchmark (72-81w).

    I’m VERY impressed with how snappy and responsive it does run. Virtually inaudible with H100i set on quiet mode and still room and power for a 1060 or 1070 if I decide to use it for improved TV gaming down the road. BTW, there are setting in the BIOS for Hybrid graphics settings, but nothing to say it will work (in the future) with the Ryzen Gs & some discrete card.

      I wonder if the E-series will still have unlocked multipliers?

      I’m not going to pay a premium for a lesser performing part when I can buy the 65W model and detune it to 35W using Ryzen Master software.

        BTW: Anandtech had [url=https://www.anandtech.com/show/12542/overclocking-the-amd-ryzen-apus-guide-results/7<]this Ryzen APU Overclocking article[/url<] which I read during my lunch break today. TDP is determined from the base frequency, which is why the base frequencies of the GE CPUs are much lower. Per the Anand article, lowering the CPU frequency from 3.5GHz to 3.2GHz reduces the CPU power draw from ~95W to ~75W. Taking into account the 46% overshoot in TDP, that's still a 45-50W TDP for a GE-similar base clock. Clearly there's something else going on with the GE chips for them to hit a 35W TDP.

      My desktop has a 2400G and I’m also impressed with it. It plays Diablo 3 and StarCraft 2 on medium-ish settings at 1080p and maintains 60fps. If these things can deliver 90-95% (as the spec indicates) in half the power consumption, they’ll be very nice low-power CPUs indeed.

    Do these have the new Precision Boost 2?

    EDIT: This goes for all 4 of these, not just the 35W parts.

    O_O. 4 cores. 8 threads. AND A GPU in only a 35W package. Very nice. Auxy’s a human just like the rest of us.

      Yah, they are prob gonna run way over their TDP tho like the other ryzen APUs. (‘ω’)

          Trying to defend you, Auxy. Chill and stay lovely.

        Sorry my response below wasn’t meant to be a personal attack. I was just mocking the emoji. Sorry again!

          I’m pretty sure that was the plot of a south park episode.

      Technically, Sandy Bridge ULV mobile did that 7 years ago 😉

      Admittedly, calling the HD3000 graphics a GPU is [i<]a bit of a stretch.[/i<]

      Intel have 6 cores 12 threads and iGPU in only 35w package

        Yeah but that’s easily 50% more expensive and has a rather weak GPU. Sure maybe the cores are worth it but the Vega chip will run circles around the 630.

          • MOSFET

          Vega probably runs circles around Iris Plus too, which is only twice the EU of a 630 (plus the eDRAM, and in a 15W – 28W TDP usually). I don’t even know if Iris Pro showed up in Kaby Lake (+refresh).
