AMD Ryzen 3 3300X starts cementing its position as a budget CPU champion by beating the Intel Core i3-10300 in Time Spy benchmark
We already had some first benchmark results for both the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and the Ryzen 3 3100, where both of the recently announced processors managed to thoroughly challenge Intel’s aging Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K desktop processor. However, it seems the Ryzen 3 3300X is also ready to take on the upcoming Core i3-10300 as well.
The Intel Core i3-10300 could be seen as a replacement for the i7-7700K, so it’s likely there will be quite a few comparisons between the Comet Lake-S part and the entry-level Ryzen 3000 processors over the next few weeks. AMD has already got off to a good start thanks to this comparison posted by Tum Apisak, which was taken from 3DMark’s Time Spy benchmark. The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X scored 5,395 points while the i3-10300 managed a CPU score of 5,221 points.
It’s only a difference of 3.3%, but there are other factors in the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X chip’s favor here. Both the Zen 2 CPU and the Intel Core i3-10300 have four cores and eight threads and are aimed at the budget sector. The AMD processor has a TDP of 65 W whereas the Intel part is rumored to have a TDP of 62 W.
Keep in mind that Intel is notorious for listing TDP at base clock operation levels and for having processors that generally consume much more power than AMD’s chips. The clocks are similar: 3.8/4.3 (AMD) vs. 3.7/4.3 (Intel), but it is likely the Ryzen 3 3300X will be cheaper, costing US$120 and coming with a Wraith Stealth cooler included.
