AMD Ryzen 3 is the upcoming series of entry-level CPUs from AMD and here we have some simulated AMD Ryzen 3 benchmarks that reveal that the performance is not as high as we expected. The AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs namely the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and the AMD Ryzen 3 1200 are beaten by the Intel i3 7350K.
The Intel i3 7350K is the only i3 CPU that features an unlocked multiplier, this means that you can overclock the CPU a fair bit. The CPU received some criticism when it first came out but according to these AMD Ryzen 3 benchmarks, the Intel CPU does come out on top, in most cases. Remember that these are simulated AMD Ryzen 3 benchmarks and final products could perform much better.
The good news is that the AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs perform much better than the Intel Pentium G4560, which is a popular CPU among the budget PC builders and also seems to be catching the attention of miners according to Intel. Seeing how well the AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs perform, if they are priced right they could be the next popular entry-level CPUs.
The CPUs will be hitting the shelves in a weeks time and we will be able to take a look at the actual performance for ourselves and see how well these CPUs perform as compared to Intel i3 CPUs. I am especially interested in checking out the performance as compared to the Intel i3 7100 as that is one of the most popular CPUs being sold today.
The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and 1200 feature 4 cores and 4 threads, which is double what you get with an Intel i3 CPUs. In theory, you should get better performance as well and that is what I expect to see when the CPUs come out and we can test them for ourselves.
