Recently AMD launched its entry-level Ryzen 3000 CPUs based on the 7nm Zen 2 architecture. Both the Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X are cheap and have decent specs for the price and now we have some leaked benchmarks that suggest it’s real-world performance.
The new Ryzen 3 3300X is spotted against the Core i7-7700K in the older Geekbench 4 benchmark. Both the CPUs have the same 4-core and 8 thread configuration and are unlocked CPUs, so it’s fair enough to compare both of them.
The new Matisse chip managed to grab scores of 5,874 points and 20,948 points for the single-core test and multi-core test, respectively. Whereas around 66,000 samples of the Intel Core i7-7700K have been tested on Geekbench 4 and the peak scores are quite high.
|AMD Ryzen 3 3300X||Intel Core i7-7700K|
|Cores/threads/TDP||4/8/65 W||4/8/91 W|
|Single-core score||5,874 points||5,718 points|
|Multi-core score||20,948 points||19,440 points|
The highest single-core score recorded is 9,424 points and the highest multi-core result is 31,726 points. So, it’s not fair to compare like this but taking the median scores makes much more sense. The Kaby Lake CPU has an average single-core score of 5,718 points and a multi-core score of 19,440 points.
This clearly implies that the new $120 Ryzen CPU beats the $350 Intel counterpart and offers great value as an entry-level quad-core processor. The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is an unlocked CPU with clock speeds that can go from 3.8 GHz to 4.3 GHz.
With 65 W TDP, the Matisse chip is less power-hungry than the Core i7-7700K, which has a TDP of 91 W. Also the 7nm goodness implies the fact the Ryzen chip will be much more efficient than the 14nm Intel chips, so at $120 the Ryzen 3 3300X will be a very tempting option for PC builders who want a strong performance upfront.
