Description of the processor

The AMD Ryzen 5 3400G is a quad-core processor from AMD. It clocks its 4 cores with 3.6 GHz, but can increase the clock rate to 3.7 GHz (load on all cores) or even 3.9 GHz (single core load).

It supports Hyper-Threading technology and thus comes to 8 logical processors (4+4). Both the CPU and the iGPU part of the processor can be overclocked. The iGPU in the AMD Ryzen 5 3400G is an AMD Radeon Vega 11 with eleven execution units. The iGPU supports up to 3 screens. Modern video codecs via hardware are no problem with the graphics card, as are simple and also newer games up to Full HD resolution.

The processor supports fast DDR4-2933 working memory, but can also address OC memory with even higher clock rates. Since the AMD Radeon Vega 11 graphics card benefits greatly from fast working memory, we recommend at least the officially supported DDR4-2933 memory, even DDR4-3600 or similar is better. To ensure that the memory bandwidth is sufficient even in newer games, we also recommend running the RAM in dual-channel mode, i.e. using two memory modules instead of just one.

PCIe 3.0 is supported with 16 lines, which is typical for the Zen+ processors for the socket AM4. Modern virtualization features are also available, as well as the possibility to accelerate AES-Ni encryption operations via hardware. This makes it possible to encrypt the operating system drive, for example, without performance losses.

The AMD Ryzen 5 3400G is based on the Zen+ architecture (Picasso), which is the 2nd generation of AMDs Zen CPU design. It is manufactured in 12 nm and already has a fairly high TDP of 65 watts. The AMD Ryzen 5 3400G will be released in Q2/2019 at an introductory price of approximately 165 Euros.
