The AMD Ryzen 2400G is a very impressive piece of hardware keeping in mind that it only costs $169. If you were wondering how far you can push the AMD Ryzen 2400G and whether or not delidding or using expensive cooling solutions is worth it then you have come to the right place, here we are going to talk about all that.
The AMD Ryzen 2400G might be an entry-level chip but it features AMD Vega 11 graphics which are pretty powerful and blows Intel HD integrated graphics out of the water having that said the chip can be overclocked to more than 4 GHz if you are willing to invest in a decent air or liquid cooler.
While investing in a liquid cooler might seem to be an expensive choice at first, remember that this is a long-term investment and if you are planning on upgrading to Ryzen 2 or 3 down the line then you will still be able to use the same cooler. The same is the case for any fans that you choose to buy for extra cooling.
With the liquid cooler, you will be able to get your AMD Ryzen 2400G to 4.1 GHz and the AMD Vega graphics to 1.75 GHz. If you are not interested in buying an expensive cooler than you can opt for a cheaper $20 cooler. Using this cheaper cooling solution you can easily get the CPU to 3.9 GHz and the AMD Vega 11 graphics will go up to 1.65 GHz which is still decent keeping in mind the cooling that you are using.
The chip comes with decent cooling out of the box if you compare it to the stock cooler that Intel includes. With the stock cooler, the AMD Ryzen 2400G AMD Vega graphics runs at 1.55 GHz. While delidding the CPU will get you cooler temps and this means that you can get higher overclocks, it might not be worth it for some people.
If you are on a budget and are planning on selling this chip somewhere down the line then delidding is not something that you should consider. Get a decent cooler in order to get the most out of the AMD Ryzen 2400G. The chip can even run PUBG at 60 FPS 1080p if you turn down the graphics. You can check out the gameplay below:
