Blender performance with APU? (Ryzen 5 2400G)

Hi sorry if this was discussed…but is anyone here using Raven Ridge APUs with Blender? Just curious because I want to build a budget workstation with Ryzen 5 2400G and no graphics card. I’m wondering if anyone has experience with this and knows if there are any significant limitations… like inability to do hair or something like that

It’s very hard to find benchmark tests for modern APUs. Thanks for any feedback!

Hi.
Apparently even discrete AMD RX550 or nvidia GTX 1050 cards have better GPU computing performance (below there are results on blender):

Other benchmarks (single thread influences the performance of some tasks in Blender):

Thank you for the info Yafu!

I have recently benchmarked the Ryzen 3 2200G Vega 8 and its compute OpenCL performance is on par with the RX550. Additionally, you can use both the IGP and the dGPU in multigpu setup with excellent scaling:
