AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with MSI B350 Gaming Plus and B350 PRO-VDH Review

The Ryzen APUs are developed under Codename Raven Ridge and Ryzen 5 2400G features four Zen cores with 8 thread SMT (symmetrical multi-threading), which is AMD’s version of Intel’s Hyper-Threading. The core base clock to 3.6GHz and the boost clock to 3.9GHz. For graphics, it features eleventh Vega compute units (CUs) inside clocked at up to 1250MHz and 704 streaming processors. Ryzen 5 2400G APU is configured as a single CCX configuration (4+0), a standard Ryzen 5 processor typically is confirmed as a 2+2 CCX configuration. The chip is 209.78mm2 and comes with 4.94 billion transistors and a 65W TDP. One thing Ryzen 5 2400G missis out form its regular Ryzen brothers is lack of XFR, (XFR allows it to clock a little higher over the maximum boost frequency based on power load and temperature headroom), but with Raven Ridge AMPs you only get the max Turbo Frequency, if you want more speed than you need to overclock manually. Also, the Ryzen 5 2400G only has 8 PCIe 3.0 lanes which meant if you want to update to any dedicated GPU it will run at 8X speed, though it shouldn’t affect the performance as even at 8X Gen 3.0 speed it has more than enough bandwidth for any mid-range graphics cards.

The Ryzen 5 2400G is also AM4-based and should work in most AM4 socket motherboards that have display outputs with the latest BIOS update. Also, the chip is fully unlocked to explore overclocking.
