AMD announced its new budget 3rd-gen Ryzen desktop processors, the $99 Ryzen 3 3100 and the $120 Ryzen 3 3300X. AMD also announced the long-anticipated B550 chipset which will support the PCIe 4.0 interface.
Both new Ryzen 3 processors are built using AMD’s Zen 2 architecture which utilizes a 7nm manufacturing process. AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X both feature 4 cores and 8 threads. Also each of the new CPUs operates with a 65W TDP and has 18MB of cache. They both use the AM4 platform and both support SMT (simultaneous multithreading).
Beside the letter “X”, which stands for the supporting of the technology of the internal company overclock ХFR, the other main difference between the two processors is the boost clock. The Ryzen 3 3100 has a base clock speed of 3.6GHz and a max boost clock of up to 3.9GHz. The Ryzen 3 3300X has a higher base clock speed of 3.8GHz and a higher max boost clock of up to 4.3GHz.
In the table below, you can see some of the known specifications and prices of both – the latest Ryzen 3 processors and the Іntеl Соrе і3 10th Gen processors:
