Surely the ryzen APU 2400g is a far better buy .. pretty muchg the same chip with a large dollop of added graphics.. with this chip you would need a gfx card , say gt1030, at 70-80. SO a saving of a few quid , its just a shame their isn't a 2500g with slightly better gfx .

If you don't have a GPU then sure the APU would make sense, but many people already have graphics cards that are better than the one in the 2400G, so these end-of-line processors can be a good bargain for those want to upgrade right now.Also, the 2400G is around £35-40 more expensive than this too. Additionally, using an APU eats into your RAM, which right now is very expensive. By the time you pay for an extra 2GB of RAM and given the additional cost of the 2400G, you're almost as well buying the 1030GT.

You do have to wonder tho..what exactly would people be upgrading from? AFAIK the 2200/2400g exceed the equivalent 12/1400 in every way, so even if you have GPU the newer apu is better, the only way these (1200/1400) are better is the price, and possibly the mobo compatibilty.

They would be upgrading with a new mobo also.

People with an older system who already have a better GPU. My brother for example has a G3258 as a CPU and a GTX 970. Lots of people are still using dual core CPUs but have a GPU that is a reasonable standard.
The big problem as the moment is the cost of DDR4 holding people back from upgrading.
Also the APU's use a TIM (thermal interface material) which isnt metal. The non APU's use a metal TIM.

you dont need to upgrade your motherboard for the new AMD APUs . they're still AM4.

You are technically correct. However anyone ‘upgrading’ to a 1400 won’t have an AM4 board.

It’s not like this is an Intel i9 that would get so hot that Nuclear Fusion is almost attainable.
As always the TIM is relative to the CPU and the media are making it a big thing, despite it not being.
Before integrated heat spreaders there was no ‘solder’ it was TIM directly on the due to heatsink plate.

Exactly
Now even less GBP 105 (its garlic based TIM)
Two words "DDR4 prices"

I so want a Ryzen 1600 but DDR4 prices are insane
