    He, he, as you see that is total different market, as people buy this APUs exactly to game actually
    Why? It performs much worse in games than any dedicated GPU.

    I guess percentage is single digit low, but i could be wrong

    I think it depends. For non-gaming use, the integrated Vega 11 is more than enough, so why should you need to buy a separate graphics card?

    And if you are gaming, it still makes sense to have the integrated graphics run your desktop and apps, and the dedicated GPU could then be dedicated to just running the game as well as it can.

    Spot on - I have an Athlon 200GE in a NAS ...great thing especially with Kodi. My Desktop will have an upgrade next.....but definitely without iGPU ....I dont want to pay for a feature which will not be used at all. A higher order Ryzen should be used with additional GFX Card.

    Which low end, this is high end APU

    All other APUs in desktop/embedded/mobile space are bellow this in performance.
    I meant that it'd be nice if the higher end CPUs would also get an integrated GPU.

    Does it have to be on the same die? Couldn't the GPU be just another chiplet in the same package?

    Very interesting results. I really like theGPU performance of AMDs chips as it leads to a very nice GUI experience. In fact I prefer that experience over Intel’s solution even with slightly slower CPUs.

    The bad bad news is that being a Raven Ridge owner I’m very disappointed with the state of Linux on this chip set. Every kernel update / graphics update is a gamble and the last one from Fedora has made the machine particularly unstable. When buying the machine I expected a few months of ironing out but honestly this has become a joke.
    I wonder if AMD did something with their later processors, mine has been very stable but I bought it in late April 2018 and put it on a x370 chipset.

    The only issue I run into is playing graphic memory hungry games such as FarCry Primal or GTA IV, I run out of graphic RAM and the game crashes. I almost never have GPU hangs (any more) and my 2400g is serving me well as my main system. (Mageia 7)
