Exists a AMD cpu with integrated graphics for 50-60 dollars?

Hi

Intel has the pentium CPU's, which are great and offers 4 threads and integrated graphics for 50 dollars. Does AMD have something similar?

Thank you
 
Aside from some older Excavator based APUs that aren't worth getting these days, the only AMD chip down at that price range is the recently released Athlon 200GE. It's a 2 core/4 thread Ryzen chip with a heavily cut down Vega integrated GPU. It performs similar to Intel's current Pentiums in terms of CPU performance. Unlike all of AMD's other Ryzen chips, the 200GE is locked and cannot be overclocked.

Thank you. I'm between this and 2200G. 2200G is vulnerable to intel vulnerabilities? and 200GE?

Which whould be a good motherboard for these cpus with cheap price?

Thanks
 
Both chips will be vulnerable to whatever Spectre variants AMD is currently vulnerable to. It's less than Intel, but that can always change especially as security researchers start scrutinizing Ryzen more closely.

The 2200G is the better CPU, especially if you want to try to game on the integrated graphics. As for motherboards, B450 chipsets offer more features and allow overclocking on the 2200G. The A320 boards are cheaper but do not allow overclocking. If you want to go with the 200GE and have no intention of getting a better CPU in the foreseeable future, then an A320 board can work.
 


Nope, Athlon 200GE is still the best choice at that low a price. AMD teased next gen Ryzen CPUs at CES but they aren't coming out until mid 2019 now, so probably somewhere between May and July. Even then, it will be the high end parts coming out first and I wouldn't be surprised if something in the low end R3 or Athlon range doesn't come out until late this year, possibly even early 2020 for new Athlons. If you need a computer now and are on that tight a budget, the Athlon 200GE is as good as you're going to get unless you want to look at some used hardware.

According to what you are doing with the computer and what you plan on having for possible upgrade path.
Everything currently on the market is vulnerable to the "big two" threats that were disclosed. As of now the safety from those is in code. It will take a while for RnD to 'develop' the issue out of architecture. So, make that a non issue for now, as it has to be.

With that said. If you don't care about 'gaming' performance and are looking for a cheap alternative with decent onboard graphics some of the higher end A series APU are worth looking into. You can pick them and mobo up STUPID cheap and are still on DDR3 which is marginally cheaper. You should be able to find quite a few options of these used as people unload them to move up into Ryzen/AM4.
If you have any desire to upgrade or use this for something other than simple office work or browsing the Web, spend some on the AM4 platform. There is a lot of value to the line, even with the low spec stuff.
