The AMD Ryzen 2200G is out now and it is an entry-level APU with AMD Vega graphics and the product has a lot of hype surrounding it. Some publications are even claiming that you can leave a graphics card out of the equation. While that might be the case for lighter titles, it does not apply to all games. Here we are going to take a look at the decrease in thermals when the AMD Ryzen 2200G is delidded.
The delidding process is the same for AMD 2400G as well but this is not something that we recommend if you have not done this before. If you are new to the process then you should wait for a proper delidding tool, which will make the process much easier and simpler. The AMD 2200G uses thermal paste rather than solder which is most likely a cost saving method used with these entry-level chips.
If you are interested in delidding the AMD 2200G or the AMD Ryzen 2400G then you can check out the video below in order to learn whether or not it is even worth it.
From the video, you can see that the delidding actually works and it is worth noting that with the delidding done, you can reduce fan speeds, give you more room in order to get a smaller cooler into your case and you can also get a higher overclocking. This is an entry-level chip and is already great value for money so you should not expect huge jumps in clock speeds when it comes to overclocking.
The AMD 2200G is available for $99 and comes with 4 cores and 4 threads out of the box, the bigger brother 2400G will cost you $169 but it comes with 4 cores and 8 threads along with SMT, something that you do not get on the AMD 2200G.
AMD did pretty well in 2017 and this is a good start to 2018. This is just the beginning and you can expect to see some cool tech later on this year as well. The following is what AMD CEO Lisa Su had to say in this regard.
The Raven Ridge/Ryzen Mobile design was sort of like the first step, but we are nowhere near done with everything that can be done, so you are going to see that power profile get better and better as new systems come out. So yes, I am very optimistic about the whole, like I said, I am simply amazed with some of the things that you can do, or we can do with in partnership with the OEMs.
Let us know what you think about the AMD Ryzen 2200G and whether or not this is something that you are interested in.
