With AMD announcing the new third generation Ryzen processors built on their Zen2 architecture, the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X processors. AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and 3 3300X processors are faster and more efficient than anything their counterpart has to offer at this moment because of AMD’s superior 7nm process, allowing higher boost frequencies which are set at 3.9GHz on the 3100 and 4GHz on the 3300X, it's claimed.
These 4 Core 8 thread Processors coupled with SMT (simultaneous multithreading) which is a first for Ryzen 3 processors make these chips better suited for content creation roles and could help with games built on more modern engines as well.
The pricing for newly launched Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X is also very aggressive, with the Ryzen 3 3100 retailing at about $99 while the Ryzen 3 3300X is just $120.
The AM4 platform they are designed for makes them compatible with the current B450 motherboards with a BIOS update which means with a good B450 motherboard, you can now experience smooth and fast gaming experience with popular online games such as DOTA2, Fortnight, or League of Legends, it is claimed.
BIOSTAR has released some of the benchmark results from the in-house tests they ran using the RACING B450GT3 and B450MH motherboards using the new 3rd gen Ryzen processors and had some good benchmark results compared to the test scores released by AMD, matching and sometimes even exceeding the numbers AMD showcased.
