The AMD Ryzen 5 3400G CPU cores have been overclocked to 3.7-4.2 GHz, while the Vega 11 integrated graphics is clocked at 1.4 GHz, a significant boost from its predecessor, the Ryzen 5 2400G.
As mentioned, the Radeon RX VEGA is consists of 11 cores and it has a clock frequency of 1400 MHz. There are 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM attached to the VEGA part of the Ryzen 5 3400G.
The Ryzen 5 3400G features a 12nm lithography of Zen+ improves on last year’s 14nm FinFET process, seeing improvements of 10-15% over preceding nodes. This helps to extend clock speeds and reduces the current required to perform a specific task. This delivers improved performance in all the ways that enthusiast customers requested: latency, overclocking, memory speed and clock speeds.
In total, it has a TDP of 65 watts and expected power consumption of between 45 and 65 watts.
We’d tested the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G using the different benchmarking result, and here we can see that it is significantly better than the previous Ryzen 5 2400G.
3DMark (FIRE STRIKE 1.1) Score:
CINEBENCH R15 Single-Core Score:
CINEBENCH R15 Multi-Core Score:
Surprisingly, the Ryzen 5 3400G draws only 29 watts idle and 71 watts at full load.
Slightly slower than the Ryzen 5 2400G with an idle power draw of 31 and 74 watts at full load.
This CPU targets that budget-concerned individual who wants to game but has a tight budget. Then here comes the Ryzen 5 3400G, this APU should be your top choice as it has 4 Physical Cores paired with 8 Threads so this could do the processing much faster than the other 4C/4T processor in the market. In terms of gaming, the integrated AMD Radeon Vega 11 can let you play most of the famous e-sports titles like Dota 2, CS:GO, Overwatch and many more and this leaves the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G a great option that makes even 1080P gaming a possibility without a discrete Graphics Card.
