(Videos) Testing Ryzen APUs (SoC)s in Warframe. Raven Ridge-U, Picasso and.... (UPDATE!)

Updated: Jan 11, 2021

(11/01/2021) Update: Probably not going to test Dali. I might do, but don't hold your breath. :D


In this series, I am testing of three Ryzen-based System on Chips, or Accelerated Processing Units as AMD used to call them. The three chips I will be testing are;

  • Ryzen 5 2500U; 15W "U" series mobile SoC

  • Ryzen 5 3400G; 65W AM4-socketed desktop SoC

  • Athlon 3000G; 25W AM4-socketed entry-level desktop SoC

For the mobile part, I am using my HP Envy X360 13" with 2x4GB (Dual Channel) soldered DDR4-2400 MHz. I can't tweak that so it is what it is, I will also do the various boosts states (15, 20 and 25W observed) with and without AC power connected.

For the 3400G and 3000G, I test various power limits and memory settings, and maybe some overclocking if I feel like it (maybe).

All three parts will have various quality pre-sets at various resolutions when the series is complete! For now, there is only the 2500U at 720p "low" preset with medium GPU particles (they look nice), and the 3400G at 1080p "high" preset. More to come!

Ryzen 5 2500U (HP Envy X360 13")

  • 720p "low" + "medium" GPU particles.

Ryzen 5 3400G (ASUS B450M-A PRIME)

  • 1080p "high"
