Now that the first two 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 processors are out, here is a quick comparison of the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 processors!


AMD Ryzen 3 3300X vs Ryzen 3 3100 : Official Tech Briefing

Let’s start with the official AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 tech briefing by AMD Ryzen Product Marketing Manager, Erin Maiorino.


AMD Ryzen 3 3300X vs Ryzen 3 3100 : Comparison

Cores + SMT

They are both quad-core processors that supports SMT (simultaneous multi-threading), so they both can handle up to 8 threads at the same time.

CCX Difference

While they are both quad-core processors using a single CCD (Core Chipset Die), AMD configured both processors differently.

The Ryzen 3 3300X uses a single CCX (Core Complex) – its four cores directly communicate with each other, and share the same 16 MB L3 cache. AMD calls this a 4+0 configuration.

The Ryzen 3 3100 uses two CCXs with two cores in each CCX, sharing their own 8 MB L3 cache. The two CCXs communicate through the Infinity Fabric interconnect. This is known as the 2+2 configuration.

This difference has performance implications – Ryzen 3 3300X will deliver better performance with lower latencies, than the Ryzen 3 3100.

Clock Speed Difference

To further differentiate them, the Ryzen 3 3300X has a 200 MHz (5.55%) higher base clock and a 400 MHz (10.25%) higher boost clock.

TDP + Bundled Cooler

They both have a 65 watt TDP, which can be reduced to 45 watts using Ryzen Eco Mode. They also come bundled with the Wraith Stealth cooler.
