AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X Prices Reportedly Leak Out

AMD’s 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 parts are expected to launch in the coming months with four cores and eight threads and a boost clock of up to 4.3GHz. This would put them directly in competition with the Intel Core i3-9100 and its upcoming Comet Lake successors. The prices of the latest Zen 2 parts have also reportedly found their way to the internet.

AMD Might be Working on 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X Quad-Core CPUs

According to a Twitter source, the Ryzen 3 3100 will be priced at $104 while the Ryzen 3 3300X will cost $120. In comparison, the Core i3-9100 costs $135 and the 9100F is priced at just $80. The coming Comet Lake parts will bring hyperthreading to the Core i3s for the first time, putting them right next to the new Ryzen 3 chips.

As you can see in the above chart, if the prices turn out to be correct, the 3100 and 3300X should do well against Intel’s 10th Gen hyperthreaded i3s, all the while offering tangible benefits over the existing 9th Gen parts. At the same time though, AMD’s own Ryzen 5 1600 AF costs just $85. For less than a hundred bucks, you’re getting six cores and twelve threads based on the Zen+ architecture.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that the AF is limited to the US markets, and Zen 2’s better IPC and gaming performance should appeal to a wide audience in the Asia-Pacific.
