The unannounced Ryzen 3 2300X is running at 3.5 GHz by default and can go up to 4 GHz via boost frequencies. On default air cooling it may be pushed to 4.3 GHz without any problems, but liquid coolers may be able to help push it even further. The processor managed to score 690 points in Cinebench R15, placing it right between Intel's i3-8100 and i3-8350K.

The mid-range and mid-high-end processors based on AMD’s Zen+ architecture are already available, and performance is mostly on par with Intel’s counterparts. AMD usually gets more sales in the entry-level to mid-range sectors, but the company has not yet officially announced any entry-level solutions. According to Chinese forum Chiphell, AMD's entry-level processors should arrive soon, as one of the forum users was able to benchmark a prototype Rzyen 3 2300X model.

CPU-Z shows that the Ryzen 3 2300X is a quad-core/quad-thread model running at 3.5 GHz by default (4.0 GHz boost). It also comes with 8 MB of L3 cache and is rated 65 W max TDP. The Chiphell user was able to overclock the model to 4.3 GHz @1.38 V core on air cooling only, so the CPU may be pushed to higher clocks on liquid-based coolers. Performance-wise, the Ryzen 3 2300X managed to score 690 points in Cinebench R15 running at default clocks, situating it somewhere between Intel’s i3-8100 and i3-8350K models.

This budget variant is going to benefit most from the launch of the B450 mid-range series of motherboards that is expected to arrive later this summer. The MSRP for the Ryzen 3 2300X should not go over US$140, according to WCCFTech.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
