After struggling to use Darktable and Gimp on an Intel N4200 - based laptop with 4gb of RAM and integrated HD505 graphics an d a very slow HDD subsystem, I decided to go ahead and put together a pc, however I am very tight on the budget.
Currently I have collected (all used):
- B350-based AM4 motherboard,
- 8GB of DDR4 2400Mhz RAM (2x4GB)
and it’s time for CPU/APU/GPU selection.
My options (available used and fitting the budget) are:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 1200 (4C/4T - 3.1GHz/3.5GHz) + GPU: AMD R7 265 (2GB)
APU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G (4C/4T - 3.5/3.7GHz), relying on the integrated Vega 8 GPU
The operating system will be Linux.
Could you please advise on which option is going to give a better performance?
