AMD Ryzen 3 3300X CPU Review

Rendering Benchmarks

Now it is time to cover benchmarks that test rendering performance.  The ability to render fast and reduce time for rendering is very important, different CPUs can help in this process so let’s see how these stack up.

Cinebench R20

We are starting with the popular Cinebench R20 benchmark and will test Multi-Threading and Single-Thread performance.

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X Cinebench R20

The Ryzen 3 3300X Cinebench R20 score is 2612.  This is 12% faster than Intel Core i5-9400 score of 2330.  Those extra threads do help quite a bit.  In fact, the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 is matching the Intel Core i5-9400 here.

We also did a custom setting to enable just one thread.  In the single-thread test the Ryzen 3 3300X comes out on top at 504 which is 20% faster than the Intel Core i5-9400.  It appears Ryzen 3 IPC is higher. 

Blender Open Data Benchmark

We are using the brand-new Blender Open Data Benchmark version 2.04.  This newer Blender Benchmarks works differently than the last one.  This one downloads several different demos it can run, there are six of them.  Some of them can take quite a long time to run on slower CPUs.  This benchmark also tests version 2.82 of Blender.  We enabled that version and selected only two of the demos of that for us showed large results between the CPUs.   These happened to be some of the longer runs the benchmark ran.  The results are in minutes and seconds, with lower times being better.

The first demo we had it benchmark was called “pavilion_barcelona.”  This one took a whole 30 minutes on the Intel Core i3-9100F CPU.  You can see hat moving to 6 cores on the i5-9400 helped quite a bit by shaving off 10 minutes.  The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 helped just a minute a more.  The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X though shaved a few minutes off that time too, and 4 minutes off the time of the i5-9400.  That’s a pretty big difference going from 30 minutes render time down to 16 minutes with just a $120 CPU.

The next demo we decided to show was called “victor.”  This one took a whole hour to run on the Intel Core i3-9100F, so this was a great test to use for a comparison.  That’s a long time to wait for a render.  What we see here is that the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X cuts the render time in half, for just a $120 CPU.  That’s absolutely amazing, would you rather wait an hour for the render, or half an hour.  The advantages of the Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X are really showing in Blender.
