New Ryzen 3000 processors: first benchmarks appeared



Both the new Ryzen 3 processors and Intel's Core i7 7700K, which is about three years old, offer four cores and eight threads. Both the new Ryzen 3 processors and Intel's Core i7 7700K, which is about three years old, offer four cores and eight threads.

The current Zen-2 CPUs from AMD have so far only been available with at least six cores, as in the case of the popular Ryzen 5 3600. This will change in the course of May with two newly announced Ryzen 3000 processors, for which the first benchmarks have now surfaced are (via Wccftech).

The fastest Ryzen quad-core: According to the benchmark results, the Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 are expected to be AMD's fastest four-core processors to date.

That brings them to performance regions like Intel's former top model Core i7 7700K with the same number of cores – at least in certain applications like Cinebench R15.

The information on the 7700K from the following table comes from our own CPU test system, the values ​​of the Ryzen 3 models from new entries in the CPU-Monkey database.


Cinebench R15
Singlescore / multiscore

The somewhat older quad-core Ryzen 5 3400G with Zen + architecture instead of the latest version Zen 2, however, achieved clearly lower values ​​of 165 (singlescore) and 848 (multiscore) in our test.

Ryzen 3 3300X vs. Core i7 7700K: Results of the Ryzen 3 3300X have also appeared in Geekbench 5. They are also comparable to the corresponding values ​​of the Core i7 7700K or are just above:

  • Ryzen 3 3300X: 5.874 / 20.948
  • Core i7 7700K: 5.818 / 20.329

How are the results to be classified?

The values ​​sound realistic, especially since the new processors will be released in just a few weeks.

At the same time, they are not surprising, as the Ryzen 3000 CPUs that have already been published are also doing very well in a duel with Intel CPUs with the same number of cores and threads. In the case of the four-core processors, a comparison has so far not been possible due to the lack of corresponding Ryzen 3000 models with Zen 2 architecture.

What gaming performance can I expect? With regard to our current CPU test system, the Ryzen 3 CPUs should rank well ahead of the Ryzen 5 3400G and behind the Ryzen 5 3600. The Core i7 7700K will therefore have a certain lead in our benchmark titles, but it shouldn't be too big.

Since I had my first console when I was 10, I've never stopped playing. I'm a multiplatform player and my favorite genre is RPG.
