Given current pricing numbers from, a look at the performance-per-dollar for some of the benchmarks.

The performance-per-dollar varied from the Coffee Lake Core i3 8100 and i5 8400 being a bit ahead of the Ryzen competition to being significantly ahead in the benchmarks where Intel's greater IPC potential shines. This is especially unfortunate with the 2400G retailing for $189 USD right now rather than $169 and the 2200G up to $129 rather than $99 at some retailers. But keep in mind the Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G have very powerful integrated graphics capabilities, much better than what's currently offered by Intel's socketed CPUs. You can see yesterday's Vega 11 Ryzen 5 2400G initial benchmarks while more tests are coming up as soon as later today.

If you need fast integrated graphics, these Raven Ridge desktop APUs fit the criteria well but if you are more concerned about CPU performance, the Intel Coffee Lake line-up is delivering generally much stronger processor performance and also better value with the current pricing of these CPUs. That testing as a reminder was with all CPUs on Ubuntu 17.10 with Linux 4.15 having their relevant mitigations for Spectre and Meltdown as found out-of-the-box now on Linux. It will be interesting to see what Linux kernel and GCC compiler advancements come in the months ahead for helping Raven Ridge CPU performance.

While I didn't include any performance-per-Watt / power consumption results yet due to the short time since receiving the Raven Ridge APUs, the 2200G / 2400G has the same 65 Watt TDP as the Core i3 8100 and i5 8400. I will have some power numbers to share in the days ahead.

There will also be a look at how the out-of-the-box Linux distribution performance compares against popular operating systems and more in the days ahead with Raven Ridge.

If you want to see how your own Linux CPU performance compares to the results in this article, it's very easy with the Phoronix Test Suite. Simply run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1802146-FO-LINUX415N51 for your own side-by-side, fully-automated benchmark comparison against all of the Intel/AMD processor results found in this article.
