35W Athlon 240GE and 220GE review

Paul Alcorn from Tom's Hardware takes a look at AMD's latest 35W desktop processors, and although not perfect, these fanless-friendly chips pack enough bang for the buck.

"The Zen cores in these low-end CPUs confer many of the same positive performance characteristics seen in higher-end Ryzen CPUs. But it's the pairing of Vega 3 engine that really benefit gamers without the money to spend on add-in graphics cards. While these graphics cores do have strict limitations, meaning you'll have to keep your expectations in check, they facilitate playable frame rates in several titles at lower resolutions and quality settings. The Pentiums struggle under those same workloads. The Athlons also provide solid 4K video playback performance."
