Has anyone built a system using the AMD desktop CPU with Built-In Radeon Vega RX 11 Graphics?

How is it working, what motherboard are you using - 450? Kernel?

Seems that Linux Users are still having problems with Ryzen 2400G CPU. I was toying with the Idea of using a 4K monitor/TV with a Ryzen 2400G in a B450 motherboard as they tease with prices for desktop components for Black Friday/Cyber Monday...

My Current Ryzen 5 - 1500x will not drive my 4K TV @ 4096 x 2160 4K resolution because I am using a older RX 3850 video card while waiting for AMD to release a Ryzen CPU with a APU
Host: antix3 Kernel: 4.9.126-antix.1-amd64-smp x86_64
My Graphics: X.Org 1.19.2 - 3.3 Mesa 13.0.6

#56 Quote "Installed ukuu so I could use a newer kernel (4.18.8 generic atm)
Then added latest MESA from oibaf repo. 18.3"

I am not ready to step up and build a new system using the early 2018 released Ryzen 2400G CPU with Linux problems still being reported by a number of users.
Have a Newer computer case, B450 Motherboard, SSD, Power supply, 4K TV, yet I still need CPU and Memory & maybe an aftermarket air Cooler. To test MX or Antix running with a 4K resolution display.

Reportedly 8K TV are coming in 2019 to the USA, I saw 8K demo next to 4K, and 1080 in Akihabara, Japan and the difference was simply amazing (tis funny to read that most people can not tell the difference, that is complete BS after seeing this demo with monitors side by side). Intel/Microsoft has a lock on 4K content from Netflix, and I imagine it will take the movement of lots of cash from AMD, or Nvidia for Netflix to open the door to their DRM Blockage or Intel/win10 viewing Lock Down. I still do not know if 4k media from Amazon, or Youtube - Google Movies will be available to Linux Users in the near future.

Netflix might only be 720 on Linux? https://techwiser.com/watch-netflix-in-1080p/

We have 4.18 kernels available, and a newer Mesa is in stretch-backports, though I'm considering porting that and newer xorg drivers to our test repo soon. No need to follow those Ubuntu instructions.

Stevo,

Thanks, I will continue to shop sales building a Ryzen 2400G system, looking forward to using GIMP in 4K resolution, and watching freely distributed 4K online content...
Seems Gimp icon are tiny (do not self adjust) almost takes Magnification to see them on screen, but they have a fix already for 4K displays.

namida,
I am also looking at that 2400G. Four cores eight threads, 3.6 GHz (where we have been stuck for years), "turbo" up to 3.9.
With a ssd (NVME) and 16Gig of fast (3200) DDR4, that would be a very fast system.

For linux, I would imagine it depends on that amd video driver.
A 2400G system for me would probably go for my wife, replacing a near end of life win7 with (ugh) a new win10 box with a 2400g.
It would totally be powerful enough.

But next spring, the next revision of Zen is coming, Zen2, supposedly even better. !

entropyfoe,

With MX-18 getting closer to testing distribution sporting newer xorg, and Mesa, along with the newer Kernel, I am interested in getting a 2400G again. I have 16 gigs of memory in my Ryzen 5 1500x and it is overkill for my current computer usage, it is only held up with an older video card. I built this system knowing AMD would release a CPU with onboard graphics, and was going to switch processors when it was released. Did not anticipate Linux having this many problems with the AMD graphics in the 2400G, reason i have not spend $150 to switch CPUs.

But I purchased a 4k TV, and my older Video cards do not have HDMI nor the power to produce the 4096 x 2160 resolution, yet playing with Gimp on a 4k system is simply amazing and reason I started accumulated the new build parts. $150 for Video card or $150 for 2400G seems to be a toss up, the suggestion of MX-18 having newer xorg, and Mesa, along with a newer 18+ Kernel make this hardware interesting again.

With 8K TVs finally coming to the states in 2019, I expect we will see this pixel race continue in the TV sector the next few years. Are computers going to Lag in display performance? Cable companies do not push 4k content I think they are not delivering 1440 content to users (I do not have cable TV). Internet has Much Higher definition content available, and to combat this resolution situation Cable ISP have lowered their internet Data Caps to increase their income with over data cap use penalties.

Zen 2 next year, can't wait want Gimp in in a 4k resolution.

Anyone running a Ryzen 3 2200 or AMD RYZEN 5 2400G Quad-Core in MX-18 now?

Seems Mint 19 has solved the 3-2200 video problems just wondering if it is time to try, the amd Ryzen 3 2200G inMX-18.

I know CES is a week from now, and the prices should come down with the release of Ryzen 3000 series.

Thought this was interesting link showing prices: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-r ... 38310.html

Hi,

I am running an AMD Ryzen 5 2400g in my newish PC. It is working fine so long as the Linux Kernel is 4.19; I am running 4.19.13 which is the latest version from the antiX repo. Prior to switching to MX Linux 18 I was running KDE Neon with the latest 4.19+ Linux Kernel sourced from the ukuu (Ubuntu Kernel update utilty) ppa. The motherboard is a Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming. No problems that I have noticed with the AMDGPU in the 4.19 Kernel doing day-to-day home computing. The positives so far have been; economical, reliable, fast and it is not Intel.

I have recently built a desktop computer with an AMD Athlon 200GE on an ASUS TUF X-470 Gaming motherboard with 8GB RAM and a hardware RAID controller card running in RAID 10 which came out to 4TB but I had to partition it in two because of formatting restrictions. It's running great with MX-18 on it and using the built in Vega graphics.
