Touted as the "world’s most powerful graphics on a desktop processor", and starting at the very reasonable $139 AUD for the Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics. Of course on-board video can't really compete with dedicated graphics, but that being said you can expect 720p and even 1080p performance across a number of titles.

“When we launched our first Ryzen processors a year ago, we began driving innovation and competition across the PC market. We remain dedicated to this mission throughout 2018, as we further strengthen our Ryzen portfolio by adding two leadership APUs designed to meet the varying needs of today’s PC users,” said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Computing and Graphics Business Group, AMD. "AMD Ryzen Desktop APUs are a perfect example of the innovation we bring to market for consumer and commercial PC users. Combining our high-performance CPU and GPU architectures, this new category of Ryzen desktop processors is designed to deliver a smooth overall computing experience, as well as the ability to enjoy true 1080p HD gaming, eSports or advanced display features through the visual fidelity of the built-in Radeon Vega graphics."

The new Ryzen comes in two models:

Model Ryzen™ 5 2400G with Radeon™ RX Vega 11 Graphics
CPU Cores 4
Threads 8
Max Boost Clock (GHz) 3.9 GHz
Graphics Compute Units 11
Max GPU Clock (MHz) 1250
L2/L3 Cache (MB) 6
TDP (Watts) 65W
Suggested Price A$235

Model Ryzen™ 3 2200G with Radeon™ Vega 8 Graphics
CPU Cores 4
Threads 4
Max Boost Clock (GHz) 3.7 GHz
Graphics Compute Units 8
Max GPU Clock (MHz) 1100
L2/L3 Cache (MB) 6
TDP (Watts) 65W
Suggested Price A$139


We've got both of the above on hand and will be putting them to the test this week.

Erm, if both are AUD235, why would I ever consider buying the Ryzen 3? Think you need to correct the details on that pricing.
