Userbenchmark just could not deal with the release of the 3300x and 3100 processors

Up to this day the most biased hardware reviewer, CPUPro did not know AMD has four core CPUS available. Even though the Ryzen 3 1200, 1300X, 1400, 1500X have been around for years with the 3200G. Now let's get some facts straight as usually, beginning from the 3300X reviw.

The release of these quad-core CPUs were important as it caused Intel to push hyperthreading enabled to the 10th generation of core i3 and i5 CPUs. Consumers are easily able to see the huge steps in the quad-core era from 2017: almost over 3x the price of a 3300X, the core i7-7700K still holds the worst buy of 2019 and 2020 crown. The 3300X's 7700K-like performance on an upgradeable and modern platform without the Intel's actual TDP heat is a perfect match for any budget buyers.

The Ryzen 3300X vs 3700X

Now what comes value when comparing a Ryzen 3 3300X to a Ryzen 7 3700X the case is the same as it always has been from years to another. From any chipset to any platform the more you pay the better results you get. Although this does not scale exponentially like double the cores do not bring double the performance. Wonder why CPUPro pointed this out, because at Intel's side of the camp this situation is present too, but with much more pricier steps.

Believe or not, but the AMD's budget level CPUs are beating the Intel's mid range offerings

The 3300X does not remain constrained by high architectural latency. This was never the vase, although on laboratory level Intel does have less latency. For eveyday users, this is something one simply cannot experience as an issue. Can you see the difference between storages that use PCIE 3.0 versus PCIE 4.0 as a consumer? Of course, when handling daily huge amount of data from NVME raids to another maybe then. Similiar case, can you actually see the difference between a 144Hz monitor and a 165Hz monitor? I have both, there's absolutely no difference.

The Ryzen 3 3100 has two CCXs that are both halved. The Ryzen 3300X has one CCX that handles the four cores and the load of 16MB cache. This solution brings advantages to the 3300X as it is a notable architectural change in the Ryzen CPU node.

The associated gaming bottleneck, frame drops?

Well, considering a Ryzen 3300X is able to match and beat a six core i5 9400, I would not call it a bottleneck. In Battlefield 5, the results with these two CPUs are very similiar. Unfortunately for Intel, AMD already delivers better 1% and 0.1% lows in the Shadow of the Tomb Raider. We shall give thanks to the SMT technology that is capable of controlling all the 8 threads simultaneously.

3300X vs the used market

For second hand shopping the 3300X basically eliminates the current pricing. You can buy that used 6th or 7th gen Intel, but this 3300X is laying on an upgradeable platform for far less, pointing at that most 6700K/7700K buyers are aiming towards a good motherboard. Yes, let's not outclude the overclocking features but that comes with a cost, too. And both of the CPUs, 3300X and 3100 include a CPU cooler.
