In the morning, we shared some Cinebench benchmarks of the Ryzen 3 3300X. The latest Matisse CPU manages to beat both the Kaby Lake flagship, the Intel Core i7-7700K as well as the upcoming 10th Gen Core i3-10300 in CB R15 as well as R20.
Now, we have acquired the Geekbench scores of the Ryzen 3 3100. Comparing the lowest end Zen 2 CPU against Intel’s 3-year-old flagship, we can see that the former comes out on top in both the single-core as well as the multi-core tests. This means that the upcoming 10th Gen Comet Lake-S based Core i3-10300 will also most certainly fall behind the Ryzen 3 3100, especially since the 7700K has a higher boost clock than the former.
In the Geekbench 5 benchmark, the Core i7-7700K edges past the Ryzen 3 3100. Here, the latter is running at its base clock, thereby explaining the relatively lower score. That’s one of the key advantages of AMD’s processors. All of them can be overclocked. On the other hand, Intel charges a premium for its K series chips which come with an unlocked multiplier.
Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake-S processors are expected to be announced on 31st April with a launch in the last week of May. AMD’s 3rd Gen Ryzen 3 CPUs are slated to hit the retail market on the 7th of May.
