Now we look towards some actual games and not synthetics. In Resident Evil 6 we see that Intel is favored with a discrete graphics card. However, we can also see how much better the Vega-based graphics are than Intel's UHD 630 graphics. We were not able to launch the game with Ryzen plus with discrete card, and that is why the score is absent for Resident Evil 6.

 

GTA:V is a nice benchmark where we see the 2400G do exceedingly well, even against the i5-8400 and GT 1030. Even with the Ryzen 5 2400G with the GT 1030, the integrated graphics scores are higher in GTA:V. Rise of the Tomb Raider does seem to favor a stronger CPU, and that is why the 2400G at stock isn't as powerful as the 2400G with the GT 1030.

 

It's also why the GT 1030 with the 8400 does better than the 2400G with the GT 1030 by a noticeable margin (something we didn't really see in synthetics). Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is a very taxing game, and to be honest I really enjoy playing it. That is why I was kind of shocked that the 2400G was doing so well, especially compared to the discrete setup.
