At the end of April AMD announced the delivery of the Ryzen 3 3100 + Ryzen 3 3300X budget processor and the Zen 2 budget processors. We would like to draw your attention to the first benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X processors under Ubuntu Linux compared to the old and new Intel/AMD processor series with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 is a four wire/core model with a 3.6 GHz base clock and a 3.9 GHz standby clock. This processor has a 16 MB L3 cache and 65 W TDP power. The retail cost of this transformer will be about $99.
The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X now adds another four cores/eight sections of current with a 3.8 GHz base frequency and 4.3 GHz boost frequency in an 18 MB L3 cache and maintaining 65 watts of TDP power. The Ryzen 3 3300X is now available for $120.
The Ryzen 3 3300X and 3100 support all common Zen 2 processor functions, including DDR4-3200 support, PCI Express 4.0 processor, 7nm TSMC, and compatibility with existing motherboards.
The Ryzen 3 3300X can be compared to Intel’s Core i5 9400/9400F, while the Ryzen 3 3100 outperforms the Core i3 9100. AMD has kindly sent these 3100/3300X samples to test Linux until the current embargo is lifted.
In this first comparative evaluation of the Ryzen 3 3100/3300X, I have compared them to various old and new platforms from Intel and AMD, taking into account longer upgrade cycles for those who often purchase new components on a tight budget, and also often evaluating the purchases of used PC components. The processors were tested based on what I had and the time I had, including a new test on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS :
– i3 core 8100
– i5 core 6500
– i5 core 7600K
– i5 core 8400
– i5 core 9400F
– i7 core 2700K
– i7 core 4770K
– i7 core 7700K
– i9 core 9900K
– Ryzen 3 1200
– Ryzen 3 2200G
– Ryzen 5 2400G
– Ryzen 3 3100
– Ryzen 3 3300X
– Ryzen 5 3600X
– Ryzen 7 3700X
– Ryzen 9 3900X.
This not only allows Ryzen 3 processors to be compared to the Core i5 9400F, but also to many older processors, including the Core i7 8700K, Intel’s latest high-performance 4c/8t desktop processor. All of the processors tested worked with the Crucial MX525 SATA SSD 500GB and had one memory for each platform, occupying the optimal number of memory channels at their maximum frequencies. All processors have been tested on the new Ubuntu 20.04 LTS version with the Linux 5.4 kernel and the GCC 9.3 compiler.
AMD Ryzen 3 3100/3300X still works on ASRock X570 Pro4 as one of the cheapest X570 motherboards. The Ryzen 3 3100/3300X works perfectly on Linux with all our previous tests, and no new Linux-specific problems found in Zen 2 for Linux support are now square and mature.
This series of tests with 19 processors focuses exclusively on the performance of processors and systems under Linux, while a separate article deals exclusively with performance games under Linux with these low-cost processors. Dozens of different tests in this series of AMD and Intel processors with Ubuntu 20.04 Linux were performed with the Phoronix test suite.
