In terms of graphics performance, AMD claims that its Ryzen 5 2400G is twice as fast as Intel's i5-8400 CPU. The company asserts that its able to match Intel's CPU even when it's paired with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1030 discrete GPU, which makes the Intel/Nvidia configuration almost twice as expensive and considerably more power-hungry.
As for some real-world gameplay examples of what Ryzen 5 2400G is capable of, AMD says that it can run The Witcher 3 at 1080p with a 31 average FPS and can get 96FPS in Skyrim.
Outside of gaming, AMD announced that all of its Ryzen CPUs will soon support Enmotus FuzeDrive, which is software that works similar to Intel's Optane technology; for users that have both an SSD and HDD, the software will intelligently store user's most used behavior on their faster SSD and less-used actions on the slower HDD.
