AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Work Performance

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 : 3D Rendering Speed

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

On paper, the Ryzen 3 3100 has slower base and boost clock speeds than the Ryzen 7 2700X, but in reality, it has 5% better single-core performance!

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

Of course, it is still a 4-core, 8-thread processor, which means it will not perform as fast as 6-core processors, or 8-core processors.

Even so, the Ryzen 3 3100 was 91% as fast as the Ryzen 5 1600X (6 cores), and 65% as fast as the Ryzen 7 1800X (8 cores).

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides.

While it may appear that the Ryzen 3 3100 has superior SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) capabilities to the Intel Core i7-8700K, this is due to the fact that all four cores are in the same CCD (Core Chipset Die).


AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Video Transcoding Speed

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors. In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

Despite having only four cores, the Ryzen 3 3100 was 86% as fast as the Ryzen 5 1600X (6 cores), and 72% as fast as the Ryzen 7 1800X (8 cores).

In other words, it was 30% to 45% more efficient per core, than both first-gen Ryzen processors.


AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Radial Blur Speed

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on Photoshop CC 14 using a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

For a quad-core processor, the Ryzen 3 3100 did very well, coming within 13% of a 6-core processor like the Ryzen 5 1600X.

But it is also notable that the Ryzen 3 3300X is significantly faster – very likely due to its 4+0 configuration.
