The Ryzen 3 2200 G is super affordable at $100. If you’re looking for an affordable, 4 core CPU, the Ryen 3 2200G is a good bet. The G means that it comes with Radeon Vega 8 graphics. So, if you don’t want to have to invest in a costly video card right off the bat, this chipset can be a good bet. Without support for onboard graphics, you have to buy a discrete graphics card in order to get any output at all.
Ryzen 3 2200G versus Core i3 8100
The core i3 8100 does a tiny bit better with single core speed than the Ryzen CPU. However, the Ryzen 3 2200G is less expensive. So at the end of the day, it’s something you have to consider and weigh the two processors. Another thing to consider is the AMD processor also comes with a fan – the price tag includes this. A final note – the Vega 8 graphics outweighs Intel’s UHD 630 graphics capability. So if you want to build a lower end gaming PC or anything to do with graphics processing out of the box, you may want to go with the Ryzen 3 equivalent over the Intel equivalent.
