The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 price leaked few days ago, the chips are ready to throw a challenge to Intel 7th Gen processor, as you can see the quad-core Ryzen chips are already flexing their Zen 2 muscles on Geekbench.
AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 sports a whooping 4 solid cores, eight threads and 16MB of cache. As you already seen the price leaked few days ago. The Ryzen 3 3300X will cost $120 with a 3.8 GHz base clock and 4.3 GHz boost, and the Ryzen 3 3100 will land at $99 with a 3.8 GHz base clock and 3.9 GHz boost clock.
Amid continued pressure from AMD and its Ryzen 3000-series (codename Matisse) army, Intel has enabled Hyper-Threading for the upcoming Core i3 and Core i5 Comet Lake-S CPUs. The Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 specifically target the Core i3-10320, Core i3-10300 and Core i3-10100, which share a similar quad-core, eight-thread design and 65W TDP (thermal design power).
AMD Ryzen 3 3300X Benchmarks
The Ryzen 3 3300X scored 5,874 points in the single-core test and 20,948 points in the multi-core test on Geekbench 4. The software reported a memory speed of 1,863 MHz, which we suspect should be 3,733 MHz. This means that there was probably some hardcore memory tuning in the background and that the Ryzen 3 3300X was overclocked.
The Intel Core i7-7700K, which was Intel’s last quad-core flagship, scored 5,816 points and 20,329 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.To be fair, the i7-7700K was paired with DDR4-3200 RAM, while the Ryzen 3 3300X was working with DDR4-3733 memory. Depending on the memory speed, the scale can tip to either side.
Tremendous, just tremendous, this also make me think that the Ryzen 3 3300X’s performance is on par with the Intel i7-7700K, based on these early benchmark results from Geekbench.
AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Benchmarks
The Ryzen 3 3100 surfaced in the more recent Geekbench 5 benchmark. The quad-core processor put up single-and multi-core scores of 1,141 points and 4,928 points, respectively. The Core i7-7700K scored 1,284 points and 5,168 points in the single-and multi-core tests, respectively. The Core i7-7700K was up by 12.5% in single-threaded performance and 4.9% in multi-threaded performance.
Based on Geekbench alone, the Ryzen 3 3100 seems to offer performance that nears that of the Core i7-7700K performance at a very budget killer price tag.
