Ryzen With Vega - 60 FPS on a Budget?

Ryzen With Vega

So you’ve seen our reviews of the Ryzen 3 with Vega (2200G) and the Ryzen 5 with Vega (2400G). Both delivered some fantastic performance respective of their price ranges. However, the AMD Ryzen 5 lit a fire under me and impressed with its Vega powered gaming performance. It was hitting around the 30FPS mark with 1080p resolution and medium settings.

However, what if you wanted to use this as a gaming chip? Launching at just £160 (ish), it’s cheaper than just about any new CPU and GPU combination, and with GPU prices being pretty shocking these days, those on a properly tight budget are left in the cold.

60 FPS on a Budget

So, I plan to take a few cool games (with built-in benchmark tools) that will give us a proper scope of the PC gaming landscape, drop the resolution down to 1280 x 720, and graphics settings down to low. For the enthusiast, I can hear you cry inside, but it’s unlikely someone building a budget PC is aiming for a 4K FreeSync monitor and likely running something more appropriately priced to their build. We know it can game at 30fps with 1080P and medium settings. With that in mind, can you game at a cosy 60 FPS even on integrated graphics? Let’s find out!

    I was really considering using the 2200G in the Bitfenix Portal that I got from here, but DDR4 prices are so high right now and I happen to have a spare 16GB DDR3 kit. Decided to go with a Xeon E3-1220 v2 (£50) and a GTX 960 (£100) instead. Obviously a GTX 960 is far more capable than a 2200G but I really wouldn’t have minded giving away all the extra power for completely new parts and a quieter system.
