AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Review : A Steal At Just $99!

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Gaming Performance Part 1

Synthetic Game Test – 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which supports DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 was just 6.6% slower than the Ryzen 3 3300X, and 20% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X.

Of course, the CPU only has a slight influence on a game’s performance, so its effect on the overall gaming score is less significant.

Ultimately, it was just 1.8% slower than the Ryzen 3 3300X, and only 5% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X or Ryzen 5 2600X!

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 was 8% slower than the Ryzen 3 3300X, and 14% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X.

Now check out the processors’ effect on the overall gaming score…

At 4K, it was just 2% slower than the Ryzen 3 3300X, and only 3% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X. Practically no difference.

 

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a relatively recent racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440

1080p Gaming Resolution

Look at that. This is why the number of CPU cores don’t really matter when it comes to games.

The cheap Ryzen 3 3100 delivered 13% higher frame rates than the 8-core Ryzen 7 1800X!

1440p Gaming Resolution

At the higher 1440p resolution, the importance of CPU performance was greatly reduced. It didn’t matter which processor you used – they all delivered about the same frame rates.
