AMD Ryzen 3 Series Review

CPU by stefan @ 2017-07-27

Based on their latest Zen architecture, AMD is proposing a low-end to mainstream segment with their Ryzen 3 SKUs; we are not discussing about a 2-core part but a real 4-core processor (SMT disabled) with dual CCXes, where each CCX module sports two active units. The processors do feature an 8MB L3 cache and are aimed to compete against the Pentium G4560, the Core i3-7100 but also the Core i3-7300 from Intel. Given the technical specifications and stock clocks, these CPUs are recommended to be paired with mainstream video cards in order to make smooth 1080P gaming possible.

At first, we would like to thank AMD for sending out both their AMD Ryzen™ 3 1300X and Ryzen™ 3 1200 quad-core processors for testing and reviewing.




About AMD:


“Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) is an American multinational semiconductor company based in Sunnyvale, California, United States, that develops computer processors and related technologies for business and consumer markets. While initially it manufactured its own processors, the company became fabless after GlobalFoundries was spun off in 2009. AMD's main products include microprocessors, motherboard chipsets, embedded processors and graphics processors for servers, workstations and personal computers, and embedded systems applications.


AMD is the second-largest supplier and only significant rival to Intel in the market for x86-based microprocessors. Since acquiring ATI in 2006, AMD and its competitor Nvidia have dominated the discrete Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) market.”
