AMD Ryzen 3 3300X Review : Quite The Bargain @ $120!

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X 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 3300X was 7% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100, and just 14% 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 2% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100, and only 3% 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 3300X was 9% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100, and 6.7% slower than the Ryzen 5 1600X.

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

At 4K, it was virtually as fast as the Ryzen 5 1600X, edging out the Ryzen 3 3100 by just 2%.


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

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

The cheap Ryzen 3 3300X delivered average frame rates on par with the 8-core Ryzen 7 2700X!

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.
