Ryzen 5 2400G APU Memory Speed Analysis

Our friends from PC Perspective have run a battery of benchmarks on the new Ryzen 5 2400G APU to see which effect memory speeds have on the performance. From what I know , Ryzen is more sensitive to memory speeds than eg. Intel but what about when you throw a GPU into the mix that is utilizing the same memory pool? The difference in both synthetic and game benchmarks was nearly 11-15% for DDR4-2400 vs DDR4-3200.

AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 2 processors will be using the company’s Zen+ architecture and made on GlobalFroundries’ 12LP node, but this new APU is something very interesting. The new “Fenghuang” APU will be powered by something called “15FF” graphics, which is said to rock 28 Radeon compute units (1792 shader processors) and 2GB of unknown-type VRAM.
