Average Bench: 82.6% (103rd of 1258)

Based on 2,815 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00870F10 Model: AMD Ryzen 3 3300X 4-Core Processor

The 3300X is a 4-core Ryzen CPU. Priced at just $120 USD, it offers far better value to gamers than all the Ryzen CPUs before it. This is great news for potential buyers, and bad luck for gamers that recently spent nearly three times more on the 8-core 3700X. The reduction from eight to four cores results in more efficient caching and higher boost clocks. AMD’s marketing has abruptly broken from the firmly established “moar cores” mantra to a conveniently realistic: four cores are actually okay. Maybe they had an epiphany: “less coars”! Shifting goalposts this quickly reveals both an unhealthy focus on first time buyers and a brazen disregard for existing customers. Marketing aside, the 3300X remains constrained by high architectural latency and the associated gaming bottleneck (frame drops). Comparing an overclocked 3300X pegged at 4425 MHz to a stock Intel Core i3-10100 running at 4100 MHz shows that the i3-10100 delivers better gaming performance in four out of five games. The 10100 also includes an iGPU with QuickSync hardware encoding. Since additional cores make little difference to gamers, there are no significant upgrades beyond the 3300X in the Ryzen product stack. In order to achieve better gaming performance, it is necessary to upgrade to a higher tier Intel CPU. Aside from the mob of marketers that steamroll social media with anonymous accounts (reddit, forums, youtube etc.), users will be hard pressed to find arguments for actual use cases that favor the 3300X over the i3-10100. Gamers are bottlenecked by the Ryzen architecture and desktop users need integrated graphics. [Jun '20 CPUPro]

AMD are great at selling junk. They pee in the well with fake comments, glorified cheerleaders on youtube and paid magazine reviews. My POS PC still crashes randomly. Everybody needs to call the rats out instead of letting them get away with it.

Normal people dont post comments or "reviews", why would they? Only company plebs trying to sell sh** do that. Took me a few stings to figure it out. Gotta give the AMD "fanboys" 10/10 for hard work, they are all over it - HOOYA

Amazing and cheap for someone with a tight budget, if your budget is low go with the ryzen 3 3100, almost same performance and still amazing

Essentially a budget 7700K, even better on some aspects. If you thought the 1600AF was a steal, this is a robbery.

definitely seems like a good budget option so far. Once they release it to the US more details will come. Might use it in the PC that I'm gonna build for my neighbor

"Aside from the horde of anonymous marketers on reddit and in forums, gamers will be hard pressed to find arguments in favor of the 3300X over the i3-10100." How about total platform cost and thermal performance/power draw?
