It's true that an Atom Goldmont Plus is WEAKER than an Richland APU in single thread/IPC?

I ask because maybe I'll buy a very cheap new mobo plus APU to light browsing soon, and I had thought about getting an A4-6300 APU because it's cheaply available, but there's this alternative, and Atom J4005 that may be better because of the more robust media engine.

That is correct, but mostly due to the Richland APU having a large frecuency advantage, i dont think it is below on IPC. You still gona have problems with both on Windows 10, as they are both slow. Im still handling some A6-7480 here, they are just slow, every time you load a web page it goes to 100%.

Try to get a 3000G/200GE with the cheapest AM4 board you can find, the diference is like night and day.

Thought about this but if I go this way the price difference will be 3.5 fold minimum.

Lightning burned the computer.
Not that this is a problem, problem is that I don't have a way to test the APU. I'm trying to go buy another mobo that is the cheaper option but I just realized, because the lightning came from the HDMI that was connected to the TV I think that what burned was the APU and not the motherboard. Maybe I just need to buy another APU that's cheaper than the mobo... I'm lost.
I just need something, anything to play the role of desktop PC, as long as it's working it should serve.
