AMD Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G APU Preview

AMD's Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G fills me with a lot of excitement, as while they are part of the "low-end" of AMD's Ryzen CPU lineup they offer a compelling option for basic gaming and deliver a boatload of interesting design changes.
What excites me most is the 2400G, as its CPU and GPU component both offer what we would describe as specification advantages over the Xbox One S, making the chip look like a great option for budget gaming given its literal console-grade specifications.
The products boost in clock speeds, and use of Precision Boost 2 also showcases a clear advantage over AMD's older Zen processors, giving us a glimpse of exactly what to expect from AMD's upcoming Zen+ series of processors. AMD's boost in supported memory clock speeds is an incredibly encouraging thing to see, especially if the company plans to expand on this further with Zen+, which will be based on a newer 12nm production process from Globalfoundries.
Sadly, we cannot get into more in-depth detail regarding the performance of this product, as that will have to wait for the official release of these CPUs on February 12th. If there is anything specific you want us to look at, feel free to tell us on the OC3D Forums, as we may be able to look into that either before launch or shortly afterwards.
