If you want to build yourself a gaming PC, brace yourself for sticker shock when you start shopping for a graphics card. Cryptocurrency mining has derailed the prospect of building a gaming PC from the ground up by driving up the price of GPUs and creating a shortage. That's the bad news. The good news? Thanks to AMD's new Raven Ridge APUs—or Ryzen processors with Radeon Vega graphics, as AMD likes to say in place of "APU" these days—you can build yourself a budget gaming PC based on *gulp* integrated graphics. We see your rolling your eyes, and heck, we don't blame you. Let's face it, integrated graphics have not been all that great up to this point. Serviceable in some cases, sure,... Read more...

While AMD isn't using the term "APU" (accelerated processing unit) these days, that's essentially what the Ryzen 5 2400G is, as it combines Ryzen CPU cores with Vega graphics cores. How will it stack up against the competition? Some newly leaked benchmarks help answer that question, provided we take them at face value. Let's start with the specs.

AMD must be getting close to releasing a new batch of 'Raven Ridge' processors combining Ryzen CPU cores with Radeon Vega graphics. We say this because in a handful of leaked photos, two new Raven Ridge CPUs can be seen in their fully dressed retail packaging, including AMD's Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G. These are both not yet available in the retail sector, at least not officially. The photos were first posted on a Chinese web forum (Baidu) but were subsequently taken down, perhaps at the request of AMD. There are no secrets on the Internet, however, and the same photos have since been uploaded to Imgur for all to see. The two retail boxes have Chinese markings on them, along with the model...
