AMD Ryzen 3 3200G Rendering Benchmarks

Rendering tests are a long-time favorite of reviewers and benchmarkers, as the code used by rendering packages is usually highly optimized to squeeze every little bit of performance out. Sometimes rendering programs end up being heavily memory dependent as well - when you have that many threads flying about with a ton of data, having low latency memory can be key to everything. Here we take a few of the usual rendering packages under Windows 10, as well as a few new interesting benchmarks.

Apevia ATX-PR600W Prestige 600W 80+ Gold Certified....Seems to have a lot of good customer feedback on Amazon, is a Gold rated PSU, priced exceptionally well. Personally I go for well reviewed models like the Seasonic Focus, EVGA G3 etc but more than understand that the price is a lot more and can be an issue on budgets but the Apevia looks more than okay at the price..

And this thread talks about Apevia positively:

Can I update bios before upgrading
I have a very surface level knowledge on pc's and things regarding pc's so please forgive me if i say something stupid

Pretty much I'm planning on upgrading both my cpu and motherboard from an i3 2120 and an Asus P8H61-MX to a Ryzen 3 3200g and a Gigabyte A320M-S2H.

However I've run into the issue of BIOS, I'm really not sure what to do so it could be a very simple answer but anyway. Any help would be much appreciated
USAFRet March 16, 2013
The BIOS on the current Asus P8H61 (Intel) has nothing to do with the BIOS on the upcoming Ryzen board.

Sure, you can update the Asus BIOS.

Changing from the i3-2120 to the Ryzen 3 220g is a rebuild, not an "upgrade".
The parts have nothing to do with each other.

Upgrade from an A8 7600
I've been planning for a while to upgrade my Cpu, Motherboard, and Ram. I currently have an A8-7600 which is garbage. I was originally looking into these parts but Amazon says it will ship on September 1st, and the third party deals are over $20 more which I'd rather spend on a better cpu:

I was also looking into slickdeals and say this post for ram:

I would like it to be easily compatible with a Wraith Prism cooler I got from a friend, I don't know much about the different mounting methods for cpu coolers.

The ADATA DDR4-3600 kit for $60 is a good price.

Here the Ryzen 3100 is 4c/8t instead of the Ryzen 3200G's 4c/4t. Only having 4 threads is going to be a limiter.

I'am building a budget "gaming" computer, because I saved up this year 400$.
Btw I know about the pandemic, I'am thinkin soon doing it, but I think next year I can.
And yeah I'am gonna save up again, to buy an RX 570 and another 2x4GB RAM Stick.
If there is anything incompatible or something like that just tell me.
Btw, there is an small incompatibility issue (that is not important) tells that Some B450M chipset motheboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Picasso CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions. But I found that my CPU will support it, or whatever. My english is horrible, cause I'am not british ect..
And thanks!

A question by the way, what does this mean? "Note: Some physical dimension restrictions cannot (yet) be automatically checked, such as cpu cooler / RAM clearance with modules using tall heat spreaders. "
Nemesia November 06, 2019
Hi AcacoleX.

Sure you can! I built my first one at 12.

Are you gonna build this now or next year? If it's next year there is no need to buy parts or think about what you want. A lot will change in 5 months.

Vega 8 Graphics
im currently using the built in graphics card of ryzen 3 3200g which is the vega 8 graphics, now im buying saphire rx 580, should i just put the rx 580? or do i need to unistall the vega 8 graphics 1st? and is the sapphire pulse rx 580 plug and play or do i need to install the drivers? thank you very much
NightHawkRMX January 01, 2018
The drivers for your VEGA8 should be compatible with the RX580.

However, it is always best practice to run display driver uninstaller, install the card, and install the latest drivers from AMDs site.

Problem: starting up a PC based on ASUS Prime B450M-A
I have a problem with starting a new computer based on the ASUS Prime B450M-A motherboard. Everything new.

Computer components that could affect:
AeroCool Retail VX-500 Plus 500W
Western Digital WD 240Gb Green WDS240G2G0B
HyperX Fury Black DDR4 DIMM 2666MHz PC4-21300 CL16-16Gb KIT (2x8Gb) HX426C16FB3K2 / 16

ASUS Prime B450M-A:
• Does not work with AMD Ryzen 3 3200G YD3200C5M4MFH OEM (BIOS update is required here - it should be so)
• The graphics card ASUS GeForce GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 ( it works with other components ) does not work with AMD Ryzen 3 1200 - compatibility is present without updating the BIOS, it should have worked, but it did not start.

In all cases: Black screen and POST signal 1 long, 2 short - a malfunction or a problem with video graphics (or problem with RAM). Everywhere different information.

I decided to give the motherboard to a service center for inspection.

Please tell me what I can try to fix this problem? What could be the reason?

After the test results, there can be two situations: the motherboard is broken and it will be repaired, the problem will be solved, OR the motherboard will be in working condition, the problem will remain unresolved and incomprehensible.

Thanks so much for your answers!

If you've tried each of your RAM modules in slot A2 and got a no memory beep code for each, then I would begin to assume that your motherboard is faulty. I checked the Memory QVL for your motherboard and while your specific model is not listed, something that is extremely close is, so I do not suspect and RAM incompatibility.

Yes. At this point, I'd say your motherboard is at fault.

Ryzen 3 2200G Music Production Build.
Hi All

I am on a super tight budget for a computer and that would just be around $500. I havent bought an audio interface, headphones and studio monitors as well that's why $500 is the limit for the computer. I was wondering if this build would be enough as i want to start making music soon.

If you noticed some of the parts are priced higher than it should as i live in the philippines and i relied only to online shopping which sucks but it's better to go that route than be infected with a virus even if it cost you a little more.

if you're wondering why i chose the 2200g over the 3200g is because of compatability. PC part picker says that i need to update the bios if i need to use a 3200g with that motherboard. If i will be using a cheaper A320 motherboard, same situation with the 2200g. I heard and read that AMD is lending a cpu for you to update your bios, it's really nice of them but i don't think we have something like that here so i ended up with the cpu-mobo combo to avoid such hassle.

I'll be using Cakewalk as my DAW and Lepou Lecto, Hybrit and SoloC for guitar amp sims, GK for bass amp and MT Power Drum Kit 2 as my drum software (i think cakewalk has a drum machine too but i'll be using this mainly) Tracking, mixing and mastering will be done here as well. There will be vocals, 3 guitars and a bass then drums to be recorded normally. If you'll notice the trend, all of the mentioned are free so another thing to see that im really on a tight budget.

According to my understansding with Cakewalk's website, an APU is around their minimum requirements - i think. So i'm thinking that the system above should be minimum for the use. i hope.

Thanks for the answers. Cheers!

I was able to squeeze in a 3400g, faster ram, a better board, and keep it in budget. The extra threads, of a 3400g, should prove helpful, for your music production. You want faster ram, with Ryzen.

New AMD CPU, No Post on Monitor
I recently upgraded my old AMD Ryzen 3 3200g to an AMD Ryzen 5 2600. When I switched the 3200g to 2600, I started to not get a post from my monitor. My motherboard has a debug LED on it so, it's kind of easy to know what's going on. The CPU LED is on, and my CPU fan is loud and fast. Is there something going on with my CPU or is it something else on the motherboard? The info about my PC is below. All my PC parts are about 2 months old. Ever since I put this new CPU in, it's been hard to get through the bootup sequence. I have my 3200g in as I'm typing this. What should I do?

OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Ver.2004 (OS build 19041.329)

Hello, thanks for replying.
@R_1 , I have an RTX 2060 KO, and that's what I've been using. Sorry for not adding that I had a GPU installed.

@jwcrellin , I did that already. I also used a different motherboard, and it didn't post anything on it, too.

I did find out what was wrong. I took it to a PC repair shop for a free diagnosis, they found out that it was a faulty CPU as it didn't post on their PC's, and tried a few different motherboards, too. So, I'm in talks about doing an RMA warranty with AMD themselves. I hope everything works out.

Is CAS 14 worth $30?
I plan to build an AMD system. I tend to keep my systems for many years and upgrade components over time.

The initial build I'm planning is a B550 MoBo, Ryzen 3 3200G and 16GB of RAM.

I don't do any gaming but my kids do and they will probably inherit the system in the next year or so. At that time I would upgrade to an RTX graphics card and a Ryzen 5 or 7 CPU.

So, is it worth spending and extra $30 now for RAM with a CAS of 14?

These are the two I'm looking at:
G.SKILL Flare X DDR4 3200 $65
G.SKILL Flare X DDR4 2933 $98

I'm still researching all the AMD RAM subtleties for overclocking, etc.

If I want to spend an extra $30 should I get 3600 speed with the future in mind?
Ziferous February 18, 2017
3200 MHz should suffice for the years to come, it is commonly regarded as the sweet spot for gaming. CAS Latency doesn't have a great impact on gaming, so don't worry about that. Definitely go with the first one listed. Here is a video explaining RAM speeds.

Hello recently i built my friend a computer that he could use to play games watch movies etc. We bought a dvi to vga adapter in order to use the computer. The problem is that the monitor flickers and restarts while watching videos and at startup (3 times then stops). We dont know the reason of the problem and we have used the adapter to a differrent pc (it worked perfectly). Temps are good.

Here are the specs:

maxamillionfeettall March 27, 2011
It's still fine, the monitor has its own power source and the keyboard uses usb, which is powered by the 5v rail, so it's not part of the load wattage on the 12v rail.

Now, if you were to have a 3900x and played 16hrs a day, then you would have a problem. But you don't, and if you were to ever upgrade, you would need to upgrade everything anyways.

Steps after launching windows for the first time?
So after the first lauch of windows on a freshly built pc i don't know which driver to install first.
Should i do windows or motherboard first?
In motherboards driver which first(BIOS, chipset or else)?
Chipset drivers from motherboard support website or originally from CPU website?

gigabyte b450m ds3h
amd ryzen 3 3200g
g.skill aegis 16 gb (8x2) @3200mhz (i hope i have no problems about this one, OC)

Also i need to install first of all a wifi adapter driver and i'm not sure about this.
Wolfshadw August 03, 2006
First thing you're going to want to do is check the outside of the motherboard box for a sticker that says "3rd Gen Ryzen Ready" or "BIOS F40" or something like that. If you don't see anything like that on the outside of the box, you may have issue just getting the system to POST. Per the Gigabyte B450M DS3H CPU Support List , the Ryzen 3 3200G requires BIOS version F40 installed before you can install the CPU and POST successfully.

The second thing you're going to want to do is pre-download the latest drivers from the Motherboard Support Page . Typically, all you need to do here is download the Chipset, LAN, and Audio drivers and save them to a separate USB drive.

Next, you will want to create your Windows Installation Media. You will need to do this on a working computer and typically just an 8GB USB Drive. Just follow the instructions in the link provided.

If/When you get the BIOS updated and can actually get past the Power On Self Test (POST), then you will change the Boot Priority to however you created your Windows Installation Media (typically USB). Reference Pg 26 of your Motherboard Manual . Insert your install media and Save and Exit BIOS. This initiates a reboot and the system boots up from the install media.

Once Windows is installed, then you can go ahead and install the drivers for your specific motherboard which you've already downloaded and saved to a USB.

Finally, you can start installing your applications/games/programs and you're good to go.

Question about Molex to 3-pin fan connector
My brother's PC specs:

CPU: Ryzen 3 3200G with Wraith Stealth stock cooler, MX-4 paste
MOBO: ASUS Prime A320M-K
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB 2666 MHz CL16 DDR4
GPU: Some HP GTX 1060 6GB from my old pre-built that I gave him to save money, applied MX-4 paste on die
STORAGE: 1x 256 GB Innovation SSD for OS + 1 TB Crucial MX500 SSD for games
CASE: be quiet! Pure Base 500 (not the DX version)
PSU: Corsair CX 2017 650W (will buy)
AIRFLOW: All Pure Wings 2, 3-pin, 900 RPM, 140mm: rear & top, and one at the front in the middle.

So I'm buying a CX 2017 650W PSU for my brother's PC since he currently has my old prebuilt's PSU, wanted him to at least be able to play until I got him a better PSU.

He currently has one case fan connected to the PSU through a Molex to 3-pin case fan adapter.

Can I reuse the same adapter on the CX 650 or should I buy one of those Noctua Molex to 3-pin/4-pin case fan adapters instead?

I'm only planning to have one case fan connected to the PSU, and the other two fans to a fan hub which is connected to the single CHA_FAN header his ASUS Prime A320M-K motherboard has. The amperage for all 3 fans is almost too high for one single CHA_FAN header, so that's why I'm doing this.
