There are six categories right? It is 4 to 2 not four to three.
We're focusing on our Windows 11 test results in this article, but given that the 12400 doesn't have integrated graphics, you should experience similar results in Windows 10.
Huh? What?
And the charts have ? for the 12400's price? Pretty sure those are known.

I know your Chiefs are playing today, but this article is a mess.

not to mention ¨ryzen 7 5600g¨ ¨the $259 5600g¨ and then 2 sentences later ¨the $249 5600g¨ were you under the influence while writing?

For value gaming, the actual comparison is gaming performance with integrated graphics on the 5600G vs integrated graphics on the 12400.
None of the listed comparisons matter at all.

The 3050's look like they or going to sell for 400+ and even the horrid 6500's are going for 280+
Neither counts as a value option

At least one site has mentioned that the sub 200$ GPU market (value gaming) is effectively dead.
Between shipping costs, wafer availability, component costs, and the ability to sell as many of the high margin, high cost GPUs as you can make, there won't be sub 200$ GPUs in any quantity.

Still hoping to see 6000 series APUs vs some Intel 12th/13th gen with beefed up graphics or a cheap, low end sub 150$ actual price ARC GPUs.

Not sure why so many people on message boards are promoting this false theory that no one has usable GPU's. Like millions of gamers all had their perfectly usable graphics card die just as the 3000 series hit and mining took over and they have no serviceable GPU. Steam hardware survey shows there are a whole lot of gamers with 3000 series GPU's. There are even more with 2000 series and they didn't exactly become obsolete and not able to play games when the 3000 series was released. The overwhelming majority of games will play just fine on 10 series cards. You can't play at ultra settings at 4k, but that doesn't matter to the more than 2/3's of gamers still using a 1080p monitor and there are currently more gamers playing at resolutions below 1080p than above it. You don't need a 3080 to game at 1080p or below.
