Ryzen 3 2200G And Ryzen 5 2400G - Cinebench, POV-Ray, Fluid Dynamics

Cinebench R15 is a combination CPU and OpenGL 3D rendering performance test based on Cinema 4D from Maxon. Cinema 4D is a 3D rendering and animation tool suite used by animation houses and producers like Sony Animation and many others. It's very demanding of system processor resources and can utilize any number of threads, which make is an excellent gauge of computational throughput. This is a multi-threaded, multi-processor aware benchmark that renders and animates 3D scenes and tracks the length of the entire process. The rate at which each test system was able to render the entire scene is represented in the graph below.

3D Rendering Benchmark

cine cpu

The Ryzen 5 2400G outpaced the Ryzen 5 1500X in both the single and multi-threaded Cinebench tests and finished somewhere in between the Core i5-7600 and Core i5-8400. The Ryzen 3 2200G finished well ahead of the Ryzen 3 1200 and nearly caught the Skylake-based Core i5.
POV-Ray Performance
Ray Tracing Benchmark

POV-Ray, or the Persistence of Vision Ray-Tracer, is an open source tool for creating realistically lit images. We tested with POV-Ray's standard 'one-CPU' and 'all-CPU' benchmarking tools on all of our test machines and recorded the scores reported for each. Results are measured in pixels-per-second throughput; higher scores equate to better performance.


POV-Ray tells the same story as Cinebench. The new Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G are faster than their first-gen counterparts and compete well with similarly priced Intel-built offerings.

STARS Euler3d
Computational Fluid Dynamics

STARS Euler3d is a computational fluid dynamics benchmark which uses a CFD grid that contains 1.23 million tetrahedral elements and 223 thousand nodes. The benchmark executable advances a mach 0.50 Advisory Group for Aerospace Research, or AGARD, flow solution for an aeroelastic test wing. The benchmark score is reported as a CFD cycle frequency in Hertz.

This benchmark is multi-threaded, but is also dependent on platform bandwidth, so the final results are not determined by compute performance alone. Cache and memory bandwidth and latency affect the score as well...

Their smaller L3 cache, and potentially some contention on the memory controller due to the integrated graphics engine, drag the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G down a bit here. The Ryzen 5 1500X clearly surpasses the 2400G and even the Core i3-7350K is faster than both.
