AMD’s Zen 2 architecture has turned out to be a particular boon for its budget CPU line. According to recent Time Spy benchmarks spotted by _rogame, a Ryzen 3 3100 processor can reach an all-core overclock of 4.6 GHz. That’s pretty impressive for a $99 chip. Likewise, its bigger brother – the Ryzen 3 3300X, which costs just $20 more ($120) – can hit 4.4 GHz on all cores.
The Ryzen 3 3100 overclock was performed on an ASRock X570 Pro4 motherboard with 16 GB of Corsair DDR4-3200 RAM, while the Ryzen 3 3300X overclock utilized an ASUS TUF B450M-PRO GAMING with 16 GB of Kingston DDR4 RAM running at 3,798 MHz. It isn’t clear what cooling solutions were used, but being budget CPUs, it’s safe to assume that a traditional air cooler was used (maybe the stock Wraith, even).
