While I do like the AMD APUs a lot IMO there might be plenty of reasons why 2400G might not defeat the GT1030.You keep talking about how those Ryzen APUs will not reach GT1030 performance but you still havent provided any technical reasons as to why you believe this will happen. What technically make you feel that 2400G with 3200MHz memory will not come close to GT1030 ??
GT730 with 64bit GDDR-5 was neck and neck with A10-7870K paired with DDR-3 2133MHz, why do you believe that GT1030 will be that much faster than 2400G + DDR-4 3200 ??
1. GT1030 is consistently about 100% faster than GT730. So AMD has a tough competitor. On the Mobile side Vega 8 seems to be sometimes about that much faster than Radeon R7, but on desktop side it's gonna be tougher.
2. The same slides posted above about Firestrike. Raven Ridge scaling to 3200 Mhz memory and additional scaling from Overclocking isn't really all that much (never mind which score it was). Additionally AMD historically tends to do better in 3DMark relative to actual games.
I'm not saying it's impossible, it just seems kuja a reaaally tall order, with obvious caveats (for instance, Witcher 3 which could use most of the bandwidth for CPU alone)
