    I have an HP desktop with i5-4590S integrated graphics 4600 at my work place. I recently got a 27" 4k display to replace my 27" 1080p old one. The new monitor seems somewhat laggy in desktop use although it is running at 60 Hz.
    I also have a new HP Ryzen 2200G PC. I am wondering if it is worth moving to the Ryzen if it means better 4K experience? It is a major hassle.

    Have you tried plugging it in?

    I will have to install OS and so on. Which I will do eventually. But I wanted to know before hand whether I should keep it for myself or hand it to one of the employees to replace an old system..

    That was Intel's first-generation with DisplayPort 1.2 4k support, so anything is possible.

    The 2200g should be several times more powerful, so if that is the source of th e issue you'd be very well-off.

    Have you verified that the monitor itself doesn't have ungodly high input lag? What is the model number?

    I had a CB271H before that. It looks so grainy now, I can't believe.

    Since it's not VA 10-bit, you should be fine on input lag.

    I would try the 2200g now.

    You have that Intel hooked up to display port right? Those Intel's will not do HDMI 2 which is on the AMD, to get 4k60. Also AMD drivers in Linux might be a bit smoother than Intel's. Really though the CPU power would be a wash, so unless you need the GPU power really no reason, minus platform improvements in inter conectivity.

    2200G had a ton of issues on the HDMI port with whatever driver I tried (no DP port). I had to put first GT 1030 with DP and HDMI ports. Worked fine on both ports with the same cables but still a bit choppy. Then I changed to GTX 1050Ti which was better but I did not like the reserved 2GB I could not change. So I put the GTX 1050 Ti in the I5-4590s system and use this now.
