In terms of overall gaming performance, the AMD Ryzen 5 2400GE 4-Core 3.2GHz is massively better than the Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz when it comes to running the latest games. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

The Ryzen 5 2400GE was released over three years more recently than the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz, and so the Ryzen 5 2400GE is likely to have far better levels of support, and will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz when running the latest games.

Both CPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings (assuming they are accompanied by equivalently powerful GPUs).

The Ryzen 5 2400GE and the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz both have 4 cores, which is not likely to be a limiting factor for gaming.

The Ryzen 5 2400GE has 4 more threads than the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz. The Core i5-4460 3.2GHz has one thread per physical core, whereas the Ryzen 5 2400GE uses hyperthreading and has 2 logical threads per physical core.

Multiple threads are useful for improving the performance of multi-threaded applications. Additional cores and their accompanying thread will always be beneficial for multi-threaded applications. Hyperthreading will be beneficial for applications optimized for it, but it may slow others down. For games, the number of threads is largely irrelevant, as long as you have at least 2 cores (preferably 4), and hyperthreading can sometimes even hit performance.

More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction (CPI) will vary so much.

The Ryzen 5 2400GE and Core i5-4460 3.2GHz are not from the same family of CPUs, so their clock speeds are by no means directly comparable. Bear in mind, then, that while the Ryzen 5 2400GE and the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz both have the same clock frequency, this is by no means an indicator that the two CPUs will provide the same level of performance. As such, we need to look elsewhere for more reliable comparisons.

Aside from the clock rate, the next-most important CPU features for PC game performance are L2 and L3 cache size. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 - but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

The Ryzen 5 2400GE has a 1024 KB bigger L2 cache than the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz, but on the other hand, it is the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz that has a 2 MB bigger L3 cache than the Ryzen 5 2400GE. The L3 size of the Ryzen 5 2400GE is probably low enough to greatly inhibit its gaming performance in comparison to the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz.

The maximum Thermal Design Power is the power in Watts that the CPU will consume in the worst case scenario. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU - the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced.

The Ryzen 5 2400GE has a 49 Watt lower Maximum TDP than the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz, and was created with a 8 nm smaller manufacturing technology. What this means is the Ryzen 5 2400GE will consume significantly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects. This will lower your yearly electricity bill significantly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms (unless you overclock).

The Ryzen 5 2400GE and the Core i5-4460 3.2GHz both have an on-board GPU, which means that they will be capable of running basic graphics applications (i.e., games) without the need for a dedicated graphics card.

For an in-depth GPU comparison, click on the GPU comparison icon that you can find throughout Game-Debate:

On-board GPUs tend to be fairly awful in comparison to dedicated cards from the likes of AMD or Nvidia, but as they are built into the CPU, they also tend to be cheaper and require far less power to run (this makes them a good choice for laptops). We would recommend a dedicated card for running the latest games, but integrated GPUs are improving all the time and casual gamers may find less recent games perform perfectly acceptably.

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Ryzen 5 2400GE 4-Core 3.2GHz is a mid-range CPU based on AMD's 14nm Zen microarchitecture. It offers 4 physical cores (8 logical), initially clocked at 3.2GHz, which may go up to 3.8GHz using Turbo Boost. It has an unlocked multiplier, therefore, it can be overclocked using traditional methods. It has 4MB of L3 Cache. Level 3 cache is a static memory bank of a processor and it is used to feed it instructions. It also has 2MB L2 cache and 384kb total L1 cache. This processor also supports DDR4 based RAMs with maximum memory support of 64GB. It has a maximum Thermal Power Design of 35W, making it a far more energy efficient version of the Ryzen 5 2400G. Among its many features, Simultaneous Multithreading, Cool n Quiet, CoolCore Technology, Extended Frequency Range (XFX), Pure Power and Precision Boost are enabled. It features an integrated AMD Radeon Vega GPU with 11 Compute Units that offers low-end graphical performance. This CPU is likely to offer decent excellent computational performance and should be able to run AAA games in 2018 without a problem. The integrated Vega graphics should run most games at Low/Medium graphics settings.Core i5-4460 3.2GHz is a performance CPU based on the 22nm, Haswell architecture.

It offers 4 Physical Cores (4 Logical), initially clocked at 3.2GHz, which may go up to 3.4GHz and 6MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Turbo Boost and Virtualization are activated.

The processor integrates powerful Graphics called Intel HD Graphics 4600, with 20 Execution Units, initially clocked at 350MHz and that go up to 1100MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 84W.

Its performance is very good and sufficient for extreme gaming.
