  • - Hey guys, this is Austin.

  • It's been a while, but I'm officially back

  • with a brand new gaming PC build.

  • Meet the Photon 4.0.

  • The last year has been a really, really rough one

  • for building a computer.

  • Thanks to cryptomining, it has been incredibly difficult

  • to get your hands on graphics cards,

  • especially the ones that most people wanna put

  • in game builds.

  • When you can find them, they're incredibly expensive.

  • More often than not, they're just going to be

  • completely out of stock.

  • Then, to make things even worse,

  • other components have also been driven up in price.

  • So high-end power supplies are really expensive right now,

  • and memory is especially bad, with a lot of prices going

  • for about double the price that they were last year.

  • Put all of this together, and it has been really difficult

  • to recommend any kind of new build.

  • Well, at least until now.

  • Thankfully, that changes today with the launch

  • of AMD's new Ryzen processors with Vega graphics.

  • No, this is not a sponsored video.

  • However, AMD did send out a little press kit

  • including both Ryzen 3 as well as Ryzen 5.

  • I mean, Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5. (laughs)

  • The Ryzen 3 2200G is going to give you

  • four Ryzen CPU cores that can clock up to 3.7GHz,

  • as well as eight Vega GPU cores.

  • Very similar to the Ryzen mobile laptop

  • that I recently reviewed.

  • At only $100, this guy looks to be

  • a pretty good performance bargain,

  • especially considering that with those kind of specs,

  • some games are going to be playable even at 1080p.

  • However, for this build, we're going to be

  • going with the Ryzen 5 2400G.

  • This adds hyperthreading to the quad-core processor,

  • bringing the thread count up to eight,

  • and you're also going to be getting a clock speed

  • of nearly 4GHz.

  • Almost more importantly for gaming,

  • the Vega GPU cores have been bumped up

  • from 8 to 11 on this guy.

  • This does come with a heftier $170 price tag,

  • which, in context, makes Ryzen 3 look like

  • a pretty good deal.

  • However, because this build, we're going to go

  • a little bit higher-end, we decided to go

  • with the Ryzen 5 2400G.

  • For the rest of the build, we're using 16 gigabytes

  • of G.SKILL Flare X DDR4 memory.

  • With a super fast 3200MHz clock speed,

  • this is specifically meant to work with Ryzen,

  • and that extra power is going to be super helpful

  • if you have a Ryzen APU.

  • However, at a price on Amazon right now

  • of over $260, this is probably not the best idea

  • to pair with your $170 processor. (laughs)

  • Instead, I detuned this memory to run at 2666MHz

  • to simulate running a much more reasonable

  • $100 HyperX FURY X kit, which is going to have

  • eight gigs of RAM.

  • I will say, though, that if you're looking to pick up

  • a Ryzen with Vega chip, make sure that at the very least

  • you get some reasonably fast dual-channel memory.

  • Those graphics definitely need some memory to be fed.

  • At this point, it's hard not to notice

  • our slightly unusual case pick.

  • So this is the Thermaltake Core P1.

  • It's a little different than what we usually do here,

  • especially for budget builds.

  • With a solid piece of tempered glass up front,

  • it looks really nice.

  • Of course, it's not going to be the most practical system,

  • with the entire sides being open.

  • However, it does mean that you have

  • a lot of different mounting options,

  • including on the feet.

  • You can even put this on a wall.

  • Now, because we're using a Ryzen APU,

  • there's actually plenty of space here

  • because we're not installing the graphics card.

  • However, if you do wanna do that,

  • there is an included riser cable

  • where you can just drop it in.

  • So, for example, if you wanna upgrade later

  • down the road, you're set.

  • For the motherboard, we're using the MSI B350 Pro AC.

  • This actually isn't out yet, so I don't have

  • the final price, but it is a pretty loaded little board.

  • So in addition to full support for a Ryzen APU,

  • including overclocking, you're also getting RGB,

  • you have Intel Wi-Fi built in,

  • and there's also a full-size DisplayPort,

  • which means that, especially for a B350 board,

  • you're getting a lot of features.

  • Storage is being handled by a 500GB WD Blue SSD.

  • Now I've used these in a few previous builds,

  • and I like the price to reliability.

  • However, one of the nice things about this guy

  • is it is available in an M.2 form factor,

  • which, especially for a clean build like this,

  • means that we can actually stick it on the back

  • of the motherboard to make the cabling even nicer.

  • Even though the power supply, as you guys will see,

  • leaves a little bit to be desired.

  • For that power supply, we're using

  • a 500-watt EVGA Bronze unit.

  • There's nothing really wrong with it.

  • I've used a lot of these in builds.

  • They're gonna last a while, and they're fairly quiet.

  • However, it's not a modular supply,

  • which, even though it is a little bit cheaper,

  • means that your cabling is going to be

  • a little bit challenged in this guy.

  • Thankfully, though, especially on the back side

  • of this Thermaltake case, there's a fair bit of room

  • to be able to run some stuff.

  • Maybe not the cleanest thing in the world.

  • It'll work.

  • With a system like this, especially if you're going

  • with a Ryzen APU, a game that a lot of people

  • are probably going to want to play is CS:GO.

  • Now here, with high settings at 1080p, as I die,

  • we're getting a pretty respectable

  • 50 to 60 frames per second.

  • One of the nice things is, because we are using

  • a FreeSync high refresh rate monitor,

  • if we do wanna turn the graphics settings down

  • to something like medium, we could, in theory,

  • take advantage of that full 120Hz refresh rate.

  • This is a bad idea.

  • How do I do this?

  • Moving over to Rocket League, another game that I think

  • a lot of people would play on a system like this,

  • we're getting high quality settings at 1080p

  • with a pretty solid framerate of between 40 to 50.

  • Just like CS:GO, if you do like

  • that higher framerate over...

  • Oh, come on.

  • Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it.

  • Yeah.

  • If you do wanna get that higher framerate,

  • all you need to do is just crank

  • the graphics settings down a little bit,

  • and you can easily get well over 60

  • in pretty much all of these games.

  • Oh, that was not good.

  • It's funny, I've done a lot of videos

  • on super budget systems lately.

  • It's nice to see what Rocket League looks like

  • when you actually crank the graphics up. (laughs)

  • I'm on low all the time, trying to get it to run

  • on $200 laptops.

  • Moving on, we have Grand Theft Auto V.

  • Now here, running on normal settings at 1080p,

  • we're between 40 to 50 frames per second.

  • Not the smoothest thing in the world, but GTA V,

  • even for an older game, does run reasonably well.

  • However, what I'm really curious about

  • is how Ryzen, especially with those Vega GPU cores,

  • are going to handle a more modern game.

  • When it comes to Middle-earth: Shadow of War,

  • we're dealing with a much more demanding game.

  • So here, at 720p on medium settings,

  • we're getting between 35 to 40 frames per second.

  • It's totally playable, but when you get into those

  • newer AAA titles, the graphics settings

  • are definitely gonna have to come down.

  • So, how does Ryzen with Vega stack up?

  • For the most part, pretty well.

  • You're getting a solid CPU, along with decent graphics.

  • If you're only doing lighter titles, it's totally fine,

  • but if you wanna get into more hardcore gaming,

  • at some point, you probably do wanna add

  • a graphics card to this guy.

  • With the Photon 4.0 itself,

  • there is a lot of room for expansion.

  • So you already have the really cool case,

  • but there's lots of room in here to add that liquid cooling,

  • to overclock your processor, add a graphics card,

  • more drives.

  • The sky's pretty much the limit.

  • Considering where the PC market is today,

  • I'm pretty happy with how the Photon 4.0 came out.

  • It's a unique-looking system that won't break the bank.

  • So as always, links to check out all the parts you guys need

  • to build this will be in the description.

  • Something else you might wanna check out

  • is my 2018 gaming PC tutorial, where I show how to build

  • everything here, although in a slightly different case.

  • So, feel free to go check that out over here,

  • and I will catch you guys in the next one.

- Hey guys, this is Austin.
