I think SMT is a bigger deal why the 3400G sells despite there being the cheaper option. Gaming with an iGPU on the desktop is... kind of dumb, unless it's older or less demanding games. And those threads will help a lot with editing and transcoding.I understand what you are saying, but you still dont understand that the 2400G were and now the 3400G is the top sold product, there is a reason for that happening and i dont think it is just because the extra threads. Most people dont need anything more than a 2200G yet the APU market crown went from the A8-9600 to the 2400G and now the 3400G.
There are only two reasons for going 3400G instead of a 3200G:
2) Video/Image editing (that uses the iGPU as well).
im specially worried about Vega segmentation in desktop, if the Renoir full die end up being a 8C/16T Vega 8 die. That means a 4200G could be as low as as Vega 5 product.
BTW, if GPU prices were back to normal, the RX5500XT 4GB would be a $99 product.
The 5500XT is overpriced. Rumor is that is on purpose because of unsold Polaris inventory. No one would buy those if the 5500XT was the same price. Realistically Polaris and the 5500XT would drop in price. Hopefully that happens.
