OK - big OC in budget CPU, but testing on almost high-end MSI motherboard (new cost min. 200$). Almost every expensive MB have "extra power" for overclocking - this is why they cost more than standard MB. What is the sense of making this YouTube film - a proof that is possible? Before next film take budget MB with budget CPU and make the tests...

Why test using ultra settings on cpu that nobody actually uses with gpu fast enough for those settings? In many cases, how good cpu is in comparison to another can change when dropping settings. People who actually game on this cpu will be using low or medium settings most likely, that would really show what is better.

No it's fucking stupid to do a low range video with a 2070.

+Hardware Unboxed FFS, are you sure you are Aussie? An APU will use RAM in both CPU and GPU compute, as soon as you introduce a gpu, every benchmark you make, makes it unrealistic for everyone who may consider buying it. I have considered a low end small form factor and you have told me nothing, in any reality if I would buy an APU, why on earth would I buy a GPU? Your test is non and void because of memory essentially, you have bypassed it and the inclusion of a 2080Ti 'could' create a false reading.

Intel released a microcode update through Windows which prevented overclocking on non-Z boards for the G3258 CPU (This was back in 2015 I believe). It caused the system to BSOD if you tried to OC it. Of course there were ways around it and I think they reversed the update a bit later on, but if AMD really wanted to stop overclocking couldn't they do the same thing? In saying that, its not something I see AMD doing at all.

Impressive, though I agree that you still really shouldn't be trying to game with this on any modern games. Buying a 2200G or something similar is definitely a way better value. If you can't afford a 2200G, then you should wait until you can afford it (or something equivalent) before buying a gaming computer.

I wonder if this wasn't intentional. A locked multiplier shouldn't be able to be bypassed by the BIOS so this means that the 200GE wasn't REALLY locked. Now we can expect ALL motherboard manufacturers to follow suit. It makes sense that AMD would do this to test the waters with regard to having locked the Athlon. Well, people didn't like it and honestly, I don't think that many at AMD did either. Locking multipliers was always a dick move perpetrated by Intel, not AMD. To all who hase an Athlon 200GE, congratulations, it's now an Athlon 200GE BLACK EDITION! If you don't have an MSi board, just wait because the other board partners will not stand for one board brand having what is obviously an unfair advantage in the market. They're probably already livid about it and are in the process of implementing the same thing that MSi did, accidentally or not. Unless you have an A320/420 mobo, your CPU is about to turn BLACK.

Yes i get the reason for using the rtx2080ti to show the cpu gains.. BUT.. i assume most, if not all people who opt for this cpu will use it with the onboard gpu or they would have splashed out a little more for the 2200g, so.. although we see a nice fps increase with the rtx.. what are the gains when used as it was intended with the vega 3? does it now get bottleknecked by the vega 3? is it gpu bound and so shows no increase? or does it show the same 16% increase? and lastly.. is the igpu now overclockable aswell? these are far more important questions to be answered for those on extreme budgets who may consider this cpu with a cheap A320 board as the cpu was locked, but now may wish to fork out a little extra to get the b3/450 board IF the increase is worth it . Any chance you could do a small test for us? Thank.

This is interesting. Previously, I understood that the 200GE was locked by AMD, not by UEFI. From your testing, it doesn't appear to compete with the 2200G, which is probably what AMD was concerned about when they locked it, so perhaps AMD could issue guidance allowing all vendors to unlock the 200GE. It would be a consumer-friendly move, and that's something to which AMD appears sensitive.

That's a really nice gain, if only the 200GE were unlocked by default I would consider it a much better option than I currently do, although in most cases, specially if you're interested on modern AAA games, I would still recommend the 2200G over it since 2 cores simply aren't enough anymore.
