Hej guys got my A300 some time ago and im still happy with it. Nevertheless now I am thinking about an upgrade. For 1080p Video editing and occasional gaming (mostly older ones). Problem also is that iGPU reservates a lot of RAM for internal graphics. I read about reducing this in BIOS is this worth it? I often have firefox and chrome opene with a lot of taps and reach the RAM limit.
Obiviously I am thinking about a RAM upgrade but maybe also CPU. Have you got any hints for me? Is it worth updating for 3400g? ´How much more Power graphicwise would i get in combination with faster Ram like the one above?
Crucial Ballistix TM 16GB Kit DDR4-3200 CL16 was recommend, its around 65 Euros
Does it work fullSpeed with Ryzen 2200g? What would be maximum Speed if it is not.
Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
Current system :
Ryzen 3 2200g with stock CPU wraith stealth cooler
2x Samsung M471A5244CB0-CTD Arbeitsspeicher, 4 GB, DDR4, 2666 MHz CL 20
ADATA SSD 512GB XPG SX8200 Pro PCIe M.2 2280
good kit but be aware that my 2200g was unable to run g.skill 3000 mhz kit without occasional errors, worked stable only at 2933 mhz. 4650g runs it on 3200 mhz just perfectly. memory controller in the cpu matters so much. you could still buy this kit and run it on lower speeds though, and raise ram frequencies later when upgrading cpu.
you can get around 20-30% more igpu performance going from 2200g to 3400g with upgraded ram speeds. 3400g is roughly equal to 4650g, so see my own time spy results here (2200g/3000mhz vs 4650g/3200mhz vs 4650g/3200mhz+5500xt):
i included egpu results only because i wanted to show how much more gpu performance can be added to a300 this way. when i upgraded 2200g to 4650g i thought it would be much better @ 1080p gaming (was also considering buying 4750g instead for better gameplay). but i quickly realized that the hard limits of igpu performance would not fit my needs. and i'm talking about highres 1080p gaming on 5-6 year old titles like witcher 3, fallout 4 and dos2 here, nothing too demanding. so you can have 3400g with faster rams and have good time playing 1080p games occasionally but only with compromises either in fps or detail.
