In the charts below you can see that the Ryzen 3 5300G provides exceptional 1280×720 gaming performance, as it delivers 86% of the Ryzen 7 5700G’s gaming performance, as well as 90% of the Ryzen 5 5600G’s performance, but for a cheaper price. On the other hand, at 1920×1080, the 5300G will provide sub-par performance if you choose to stick with the standard presets.

At 1080p, the 5300G ran Assassin’s Creed Valhalla at 26 fps on average with low settings.
With the iGPU overclocked to 2.4 GHz, the 5300G pushed frame rates up to 31 fps.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a struggle at 1080p with 28 fps on average and again, overclocking boosted performance by 32% and the 5300G pushed frame rates up to 37 fps.

At 1080p, the 5300G ran Rainbow Six Siege at 52 fps on average with medium settings. Once overclocked the 5300G pushed frame rates up to 61 fps, so it’s a 17% improvement.

Talking about the price of the Ryzen 3 5300G and considering the performance of the latter, the price tag would probably be around $150 and we think that it would be a good deal. Unfortunately, the Ryzen 3 5300G is currently only available in an entry-level OEM machine and not on the market, so there’s still no information if AMD will change its mind with this chip.
