The results are in for AMD's first batch of Ryzen 3 offerings on Zen 2 - The Ryzen 3 3100 ($99) and 3300X ($120). Are they any match for the Ryzen 5 1600 AF and its legendary value?

Ryzen 3 or 1600 AF? Don't make the wrong choice


Bitwit Vor 8 Monate
EDIT: Official launch day for Ryzen 3 is *May 21st.* Today is just the review embargo. ALSO: The 3DMark slides accidentally say "3100X" instead of 3100. Can you tell I edited this video at 2am last night? 🙃

@XliGreeD I have ordered 3100 instead of 3300x as price diff is 5000₹ or $70. Invested it to pump 1660super and 16gb single channel for now..will add one stick later. Shouldn't hinder much performance.
RampoDoyle Vor 7 Monate
I get your overclock argument but that goes both ways. The maximal reachable clock should be higher on the 3300x. On another note. We are talking about pretty low budget stuff right now. Someone on a low budged should be concerned about his electricity bills. For that reason I would even suggest to look for the undervolted and/or underclocked performence.

hi kyle , i had a question for you. in india we are getting a ryzen 3500 in less than a 3300x, so which one should i go for?

I now accept my mistake of choosing AF. Sh*t RAM compatibility, BSOD's or hangs because of "cheap old ram", and i could have chosen newer B550 mb instead of old B450 lol definitely everything older than any Ryzen 3rd gen is stupid purchase in 2020 and afterwards.

The 1600 AF is literally 6 USD equivalent more expensive than the 3100 in my country, the 3300X is out of stock everywhere, and the 3600 is literally 120 USD equivalent more than the 1600 AF. So I think it's pretty clear I'll go for the 1600 AF, if nothing changes lol. Ryzen 3000 and 5000 chips are extremely overpriced here

I grabbed the 1600AF back like 10 months ago or so. Great cpu for the price (upgraded from an i5-7400). Now I need to replace my gtx 1060. Looking at the new nvidia and amd but stock is non existent. And older cards have not dropped in price so it's not worth getting an old gpu

I got an 1600 AF for 110ish dollar a month ago. 2600 which was my first target went from like 130 USD to 180 in a month because of the pandemic. I was glad i could get the 1600 AF. Have to mention, i have a first gen non AF ryzen 3 1200 with an RX 570 since 2018 January, and these still can handle the newest games on FHD pretty good. I am pretty sure the 1600 gonna last at least same time that my 1200 did.

@Joan Rmadrid if you game at 1440p, gpu is the bottleneck. lower resolution, then cpu will do more work so gpu can work with your cpu nicely together. However, I don't see how above 144 fps will make your gaming experience any better. I actually gotten 150 USD from AMD settlement lawsuit for purchasing their fx cpus a few years back. i used the money for the 1600af and the motherboard lol.

Unless you have a motherboard that can operate a AF1600 AND you can get the AF1600 for cheap then go for it. If you have a newer board, or making a new build that can support 3000 series, then don't bother with the AF1600, just spend the extra pennies and get the better 3100 or 3300X.

I would ask you to help me with the purchase of a new computer. My budget is about 7,000 $, maximum 8,000 $ including monitor, keyboard, mouse ... I need a computer for everyday use, such as office programs, browsing the internet, watching movies, listening to music and of course mostly for games. I would also like it to last at least 5 to 6 years without having to buy a new computer to play the latest games. I've tried to combine these parts, but I'm not sure if I'm allocating money properly. GTX 1660 supper Ryzen 5 3 600 MB Gigabyte B550M DS3H 16 Gb of ram DDR4 3200Mhz I would be very grateful if you could help me. Thanks in advance

I changed my 1600 (Not AF) for a 3300x, multitasking remains the same but gaming is undoubtedly better, even in games that support 6c/12t it gives a nice and stable performance, adding that here the 1600af remains more expensive than the 3300x.

I can't decide on which CPU to buy. I want one for the best price, good multi-tasking capabilities, gets good 1080p FPS, and something that will last for possibly 5+ years. Also, the 3100 is usually more available because of COVID-19.

K so guys, in my country, the 1600 AF is hard to find but it's almost as expensive as the 2600, the 2600 is 134 and the 1600 Af is 125, 2600 is also faster at some parts so make sure to check if the 2600 or the 2600x is the same price or lower than the 1600af so u can buy this instead of a 3300x, the performance difference is about 15-20fps(3300x) but the 2600/2600x gives u 2 more cores and 4 more threads meaning that will have better streaming performance than u will have with a 4 core 8 thread cpu. It's all personal preference anyway. If u can find a good deal on the 2600 or the 2600x and u like streaming, go for it. It will serve you well. The main reason I got the 2600 instead of the 3300x or the 1600 AF is because, it's only 9 bucks more expensive than the 1600 af(in my country) and it offers better performance, it's only about 5% faster but still. I would have gone with the 3300x but it's 160€ in my country and the 2600 is 134 so I would have to buy a 1660 super instead of a 5600xt to get the 3300x and that will cost me some performance. 1660 super+3300x is slower than 2600 5600xt so yeah. The 3300 is the better option if u don't stream and it's only 120$ but I'm my case, 2600 is the best. Also for 160$ I can get the r5 3600 which is like so much better than the 3300x

The 3300X if you can find one (at the advertised MSRP) is the best VALUE Gaming CPU right now - period. The 3100 is not a great gaming CPU. I agree with you regarding the 3600 and additional amount for that CPU is money really well-spent if you want decent gaming AND productivity. I went with that CPU for exactly that reason and I can't get over the value for this CPU.

Is there really a bad choice with Ryzen CPUs? I bought an HP pavilion with a ryzen 7 1700 and 16gb of ram for 200$ the buyer basically bought a pallet full of them and pulled all the GPU's for bitcoin mining. He happened to have the one left in his garage that had a dented case. I threw in a gtx 1650 OC ddr6 model and have amazing gaming performance for a grand total of 350$ it's my living room tv unit with a wireless keyboard and an xbox controller. The most graphics intensive game I play is elder scrolls online at 60fps max settings. I'm waiting to build a micro sized ryzen apu box... waiting to see how they improve in the near future

i appreciate all the effort that went into this comparison but I have to wonder if pairing a graphics cards that costs twice the price of the cpu is relevant for the typical purchaser of the low cost cpu. I would be far happier with the results of a pairing with a on par graphics card, although this obviously isn't optimal for performance.If I'm building a cheapo gamer I'm not going to spend that kind of cash on a graphics card. I wish I could, but I can't. Of course that's just me. Anyways thanks for the video.
