When Ryzen 1200 can be purchased for $85? I would not go with Athlon

The extra 20$ for the 2200g would be well spent.

Normally I don't scoff at weaker hardware. Things have a purpose or a market.

But this? I can't see this serving any purpose anymore. Maybe if you get this super cheap used it could be a place holder for a more powerful AM4 chip but at $80 + tax....no way. Even the Ryzen 3 1200 serves no more purpose at retail price with the release of the 2200g

Coming to this late, but I'm actually shopping around for one at a good price. The main reason to go for this is the AMD-supported undervolt to the 45W TDP setting. This would help with energy savings getting to close to that of a high-end laptop's. I have the previous gen A8-7600 and my Kill-a-Watt measurement at the wall is around 40W for my entire desktop (less monitors).

I get that you want a low electricity bill, but what do you plan on doing with this APU?

No, just a decent business workhorse since I work from home. Virtualbox, lots of browser tabs, etc. No gaming.

BTW, I just Googled the Ryzen 2200g stats and it does support a cTDP of 45W too! And AMD is apparently releasing a 2400GE with 35W but I doubt that will be easily available to end consumers, like the Intel "T" series CPUs that are only for OEMs to put in laptops and mini PCs.

I know the 2200g is on sale for $80 at Micro Center

And I think someone said they were able to price match that to other places
