AMD Ryzen 5 2400G And Ryzen 3 2200G Review: Raven Ridge Desktop Debuts

Ryzen 3 2200G And Ryzen 5 2400G - JetStream, LAME, And Blender

Next up, we have some numbers from the JetStream Benchmark Suite developed by WebKit. The JetStream Benchmark Suite uses a wide array of latency and throughput benchmarks to evaluate JavaScript performance, and all of the results are tabulated with roughly equal weighting. The benchmark measures both metrics of traditional JavaScript programming styles used on websites, as well as new JavaScript-based technologies used on more modern, rich web applications. Scores in this benchmark are an indicator of the performance users would see when browsing and running advanced web applications.

JetStream JavaScript Benchmark
JavsScript Performance Testing

All of the systems were tested using the latest version of Microsoft's Edge browser, with default browser settings, on a clean install of Windows 10 Professional x64.


The smaller L3 cache on the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G appear to limit their performance somewhat versus their predecessors here. The Ryzen 5 2400G finishes just behind a Ryzen 4 1500X and the Ryzen 3 2200G just barely misses the mark set by the Ryzen 3 1200.

Audio Conversion and Encoding
In our custom LAME MT MP3 encoding test, we convert a large WAV file to the MP3 format, which is a popular, day-to-day use case for many end users, to provide portability and storage of their digital audio content. LAME is an open-source mid to high bit-rate and VBR (variable bit rate) MP3 audio encoder that is used widely around the world in a multitude of third party applications.

In this test, we created our own 223MB WAV file and converted it to the MP3 format using the multi-thread capable LAME MT application in single and multi-thread modes. Processing times are recorded below, listed in seconds. Shorter times equate to better performance.


Audio encoding was also somewhat of a weakness on the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G. Both processors trailed the Ryzen 3 1200 here, though the 2400G's single-thread number didn't seem to scale properly, so we'll have to dig in further on this one. 

3D Rendering Benchmark

Blender is a free and open source 3D creation suite that can handle everything from modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. It has a built-in benchmarking tool that will track the time it takes to complete rendering a particular model. We used a CPU-focused BMW model for these tests here...


The tables turned in the Blender benchmark. Here, the Ryzen 5 2400G has no trouble dispatching the Ryzen 5 1500X and the Ryzen 3 2200G was clearly faster than the Core i3-7350K or the Ryzen 3 1200.
