R 2200g

My sister is asking me about a budget PC for her girls to use for school/Fortnite. I was wondering if starting them out on a 2200G or 2400G would work at first, they would be able to upgrade to better Ryzen and add there own GPU at a later time but to start what does Fortnite on a 2400G run like?

At 1080p low/med mix Fortnite runs great on a 2400g. 60fps easy. It would be perfect for games like Fortnite, Rocket League, League of Legends, Minecraft and even AAA games(Although with those you would likely be running them at 900p or depending on the game 720p)

Fortnite runs pretty well on both. It is not a very graphically intensive game. Here is a link to some fortnite benchmarks with both chips. https://www.techspot.com/review/1574-amd-ryzen-5-2400g-and-ryzen-3-2200g/page6.html

You would be better off grabbing a used 1200 and a used RX 460/560/GTX 1050 instead of a 2400G.

Fortnite at lower settings Med and under renders much of the game at lower resolution so your 1080p is actually mostly running 720P or 720p is running even lower.

Going the used route lets you have an option to upgrade and have better graphics performance.

You can set the resolution the game renders at. According to the benchmarks I've watched. It's fine loading on medium and low settings with the Render Resolution set all the way up.

Doesn't matter what you set it too that only effects nearby objects within field of view, at medium and below it renders everything at lower resolution and upsamples to make the game easier on older hardware.

It's a console trick that happens in most cross platform titles at lower quality settings.

1080p and low settings on Fortnite is very well playable, with an 2400G and the Vega 11 IGP.

You can look at some games here (1080p low/medium settings): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC9btbBTCvg

Computer Specs:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 2400G 
RAM: 16GB Crucial @2133MHz 
GPU: Built in graphics via Ryzen 2400G (RX VEGA 11) 
Motherboard: Gigabyte A320M-S2H
  • Note: At worse, 8GB would also do the job, especially on Fortnite. The board is very basic but does the job, Ram could be at a higher speed for an APU CPU.

Make sure the board is a B450 or if it's a 3 series chipset, it comes out of the factory with an updated BIOS, or else the system will not boot or even POST.
