You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
Obviously named Raven Ridge after the Baltimore Ravens because of their biggest fanboy. If not, may I suggest AMD's next architecture be named O's Hon! That will sell big time.
Seriously though, I have not been so excited for a hardware launch in a long time, some rumors are just coming out and it looks like the Ryzen 5 2400G is going to be able to play just about any modern title in 1080P without a dedicated GPU, and when I say play, I mean 60 FPS, not 30..... Now I'm not saying every bell and whistle turned all the way up, and obviously you will need to feed it adequate DDR4, but if you want to game on a small form factor desktop without smashing in a ridiculous giant three fan hotbox GPU in a tiny little space, you will finally be able to do it for real. AMD has been close on a few occasions, they had some really compelling ideas on how to link up an APU with a lower powered GPU in crossfire and that sort of kind of worked okay but this is really exciting. I can't wait to build something on this platform. $169 for this chip looks like a steal.
