Seems to test very well so far. Handles Photoshop and light video editing very well, I haven't been able to get it to heat up too much yet at all.

Low power draw, runs cool, ridiculously inexpensive.

Intrigued by the first generation of Ryzen processors, I decided to look into the 2nd generation based on performance benchmarks I've seen with integrated graphics. This is the little CPU/APU that could. Whether I'm streaming HD videos, running multiple programs, playing games, or all the above, this little guy definitely performed well. Considering the $70 price difference between this 2200G and the Ryzen 5 2400G, its performance was actually relative to the latter CPU. For that difference in price, I'd recommend this CPU over the 2400G.

Note that the Vega 8 Graphics will take up 0.3GB of RAM by default. After some driver updates, it uses 1GB by default. Changing the Integrated Graphics setting to "Forces" in the BIOS grants access to UMA settings. From there, you can manually choose how much RAM will be allocated to the iGPU. This also means running dual channel will optimize performance, though this ran just fine even on single channel memory. Games like Gears of War 4 can run on mixed settings (2GB-4GB recommended) at around 30FPS at close to 1600x900 resolution. Less-demanding titles fare a lot better, though Gears 4 will pretty much run close to Xbox One consistency on Vega 8. Talk about punching above its weight.

This also pairs wonderfully with the RX 560. Sure, the card could use a bit more CPU performance, but the bottleneck isn't as severe as with higher-end cards. This pairing is perfect for budget builds.

Came as a combo set with the Gigabyte AB350M-DS3H. I honestly bought this set on a whim because the voice in my head told me that combo = deals (YMMV). It's a decent enough APU - had the chance to test out the integrated graphics before my 1050 Ti came in. It ran most of my games fairly well, save for a few spikes in performance. However, the fact of the matter is that it does its job well. For those looking for perhaps low-end retro or older generation gaming, this chip should do the trick.

from completed build It's a Work in Progress.

Best performance per dollar CPU out there. PERIOD. It is quite comaprable to my i7-4722HQ (at 3.3ghz) but with out hyperthreading.

from completed build "Buddy" the Budget Build

I adore this CPU. Best bang for your buck. Great for new budget builds if you aren't willing to dabble in the 2nd hand PC market. I'm planning on doing another budget build for a friend who wants a 2nd PC to handle his Twitch streaming loads.

With Built-in Vega 8 graphics, this Ryzen 3 2200G is enough to play DOTA2 in highest 1080p. I will upgrade and buy graphics card RX 580 or GTX 1060 Ti when the prices drop.

I dropped it and it still works, way faster than my laptops FX 9800p APU

The new budget king.
