The upcoming quad-core AMD Ryzen 3 3100 CPU has been doing the rounds on synthetic benchmarks lately, where overclocked samples have been chalking up some serious scores thanks to the additional voltage being pumped into them. The fastest clock rate recorded by the Ryzen 3 3100 in these particular tests was 4.60 GHz on Geekbench 5.
Daniel R Deakin,

Overclocked samples of the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Matisse CPU have been tested on Geekbench 4, Geekbench 5, 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, and 3D Mark Time Spy. The quad-core processor, which should be released on May 21 and is priced at US$99, has been recorded pulling off some impressive clock rates, which went as high as 4.60 GHz on Geekbench. The regular clocks for the Ryzen 3 3100 are 3.6 GHz (base) and 3.9 GHz (boost).

In ascending order, the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 clocked at up to 4.20 GHz on all cores on Geekbench 4.4, 4.50 GHz on both 3DMark’s Fire Strike Extreme and Time Spy benchmarks, and it reached the abovementioned high of 4.60 GHz on Geekbench 5. The various motherboards used in conjunction with the overclocked Ryzen 3 3100 samples and the impressive scores attained can be viewed in the table below.

It’s a round of fearsome performances from the budget-level AMD Ryzen 3 3100, with the final scores on Geekbench 5 for the new Matisse desktop processor clocked at 4.60 GHz recorded as 1,325 points (single core) and 5,669 points (multi core). A non-overclocked Ryzen 3 3100 sample recently managed thoroughly adequate scores of 1,095 points and 4,507 points, respectively, in the same benchmark, which shows the kinds of speed feats and subsequent performance gains this US$99 chip can potentially offer.
