AMD Ryzen 5 3400G APU Review

System Overview & Testing Procedures

To test out the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G we will be comparing it to traditional CPUs in most of our benchmarks, but we’ll also be testing the graphics in many different titles and benchmarks as well. Our AMD test system is made up of the following components.

Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3400G
Motherboard: ASRock B450 Steel Legend
Memory: 16GB G.SKILL Trident Z Royal 3600 MHz
Storage: Crucial MX 300 750GB
Cooling: Noctua NH-U12A
Power Supply: Corsair AX860i
Case: PrimoChill Praxis WetBench

For testing the processors everything will be set to auto in the BIOS. The reason we do is because most people will have this setup on their own PC. This is the default mode if you do not go into the BIOS and change anything. For both Intel and AMD systems we did however enable the XMP profile for our memory.

Here are the specifications of all seven processors we will be testing today.

Core i9-9900K: 3.6 GHz / 5.0 GHz
Core i7-8700K: 3.7 GHz / 4.7 GHz
Ryzen 9 3900X: 3.8 GHz / 4.6 GHz
Ryzen 7 3700X: 3.6 GHz / 4.4 GHz
Ryzen 7 2700X: 3.7 GHz / 4.3 GHz
Ryzen 5 3600X: 3.8 GHz / 4.4 GHz
Ryzen 5 3400G: 3.7 GHz / 4.2 GHz
Ryzen 5 2600X: 3.6 GHz / 4.2 GHz
