AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and AMD Ryzen 3 3100 CPU Review

Budget CPUs for the masses

Test System and Benchmarks »

AMD is back with some new CPUs in the Ryzen line up. The Ryzen 3 3300x and the Ryzen 3 3100 are on the lower or cheaper end of the CPU segment. At this point in the Ryzen 3xxx series, we’ve covered the high and mid-end CPUs. Now we’re going to take a look at the budget CPUs. The Ryzen 3 3300x CPUs are priced at $120 whereas the Ryzen 3 3100 is priced at just $99. Both CPUs are built off of the latest Ryzen 7 nm and include PCIe 4.0 as well as the other benefits of the Ryzen 3 lineup, couple that with the latest motherboard chipset from AMD, the B550, and a cheaper GPU, and you’ll have yourself a sweet little inexpensive PC.

This time, AMD didn’t send samples in retail packaging, my samples arrived in the small blister packs. So, pictures will be much lighter than usual.Ryzen 3


Up top, the Ryzen 3 3100 and the Ryzen 3 3300x look no different than the rest of the Ryzen CPU family. The same style of heat spreader is used. The names of the CPU are embossed on the heat spreader in the same manner as other Ryzen CPUs. The pin count is the same as well and these CPUs are compatible with AM4 sockets.
