A new budget build is on the horizon as AMD is set to launch AMD Ryzen 3 and 5 with Vega Graphics as its iGPU (Integrated GPU) on February 12, 2018. Both Ryzen 3 and 5 are expected to hit at sub $200 or P 10,000.00 price market.
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G is set at having 4 cores and 4 threads with base clock of 3.5Ghz, turbo clock at 3.7Ghz with suggested retail price of $99 or P 4,950.00. As for the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G, it has a base clock of 3.6Ghz , turbo clock at 3.9Ghz with price at $169 or P 8,450.00.
Should the cryptocurrency craze continues to horde the dedicated graphic cards for mining purposes, the AMD Ryzen 3 and 5 can be a temporary solution for your gaming needs and also for productivity. The Radeon Vega 11 integrated graphics is expected to perform and be a good alternative to dedicated GPU such as the Radeon’s RX 550 and Nvidia’s GT 1030.
As soon as the new Ryzen desktop processors land in the Philippine soil, it can be benefit a lot of end-users who are on a budget building their gaming rig. It can play popular e-sports title such as CS:GO, DOTA2, LoL, etc on a decent settings.
I’m pretty excited with this. We just have to patiently wait for its release here in the Philippines.
$1 = P 50.00
