AMD announced a pair of new Ryzen 3 processors a couple of weeks back, designed to drive its Zen 2 microarchitecture down into even more affordable price points. These new processors, the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X, are the latest entry-level, quad-core processors in the Ryzen family. Over and above disabling a few cores and tweaking clocks, however, AMD’s got a couple of additional tricks up its sleeve with these new CPUs – more on that in just a bit. In addition to the processors, AMD also announced the new, lower-priced B550 chipset is coming to an array of affordable Socket AM4 motherboards. Like the flagship X570 that launched alongside higher-end Ryzen 3000 series processors,... Read more...
Late last month, AMD officially announced the newest members of the Zen 2 desktop processor family: the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X. Both are 4-core/8-thread processors, and like their other Ryzen 3000 counterparts (save for the APUs) lack integrated Radeon graphics. The value leader of the two is no doubt the Ryzen 3 3100, which has a 65-watt TDP, a base clock of 3.6GHz, a boost clock of 3.9GHz and an MSRP of just $99. As we’ve previously seen in leaked Geekbench 5.1.0 scores, the Ryzen 3 3100 is punching above its weight class in single- and multi-core benchmarks, absolutely destroying the likes of the Intel Core i3-9100F. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 3 3300X was fighting toe-to-toe... Read more...
If processors were free, we would all be rocking top shelf SKUs, like a Threadripper part or a Ryzen 9 3950X. Silicon does not come free, of course, and so we have to balance a budget with performance expectations. Sometimes that balance exceeds expectations. That appears to be the case with AMD's recently announced Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 processors, both of which have made cameos in the Geekbench database. Geekbench is a popular benchmark that we ourselves often lean on when reviewing various products. It is also a frequent destination for unreleased hardware, providing an early (albeit unofficial) glimpse of potential performance. There are caveats, naturally, but we make do with what...

AMD’s Ryzen 3000 family of processors has been around since July 2019, and at the time included the Ryzen 5 3600 at the low-end and the Ryzen 9 3900X at the top of the heap (which was later eclipsed by the Ryzen 9 3950X). Today, AMD is expanding its lineup at the entry-level position with two new desktop processors, along with a new value-focused motherboard chipset. Starting off with the processors, AMD has announced the Ryzen 3 3100 and the Ryzen 3 3300X, both of which are based on 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture. AMD is really gunning for Intel in the budget sector, as both of these processors include 4 cores with SMT enabled, meaning that they can execute 8 threads. The Ryzen... Read more...
Few people would disagree that AMD is absolutely killing it in practically every CPU segment, including the desktop, laptop, and server. But like a race car driver who zoomed past the competition, you don't let your foot off the gas if you want to keep the momentum going. As it applies in the CPU space, AMD is apparently gearing up to launch a couple of budget processors with impressive specifications. Nothing has been formally introduced yet, but prominent leaker @momomo_us seems to have the skinny on two unreleased processors, those being the Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100. Assuming these come to fruition, they would rank as the first Ryzen 3 parts based on AMD's latest generation Zen 2 CPU... Read more...
