We continue to explore the capabilities of the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X, this time the rivals will be the Intel Core i7-7700K and the latest Core i3-10100. This material continues the previous one, in which the frequency potential was studied using liquid nitrogen and the processor topology of the two new products was compared.

The temperature in the room was 22–25 degrees Celsius. The power consumption of the platform was measured using the Feron TM55 energy meter for 10 minutes in load mode (LinX AMD Edition run) and idle. Fan speed control is automatic. The frequency potential was studied in steps of 0.025 V voltages, the stability of the system was checked by a complex of loads in the form of mining on the RandomX algorithm, a LinX run (problem size 28432, 10 iterations), as well as passing the HWBOT x265 2.2 Benchmark on the 4k preset. Each benchmark was run five times, the results indicate the arithmetic mean, the same goes for games. The games recorded telemetry (1% low fps + Average fps) using the Riva Tuner Statistics Server. Further methods are different from the standard ones. In CS:GO, a test on the FPS Benchmark workshop map. In DOTA 2, a replay of the final game OG vs Liquid at The International 2019, 19:45–21:15 on an automatic camera. In GTA V, the last scene of the benchmark from the waterfall to the black screen after a collision with a truck.

Benchmark testing

In terms of idle power consumption, all Intel solutions are still in the lead, and the Core i3-10100 is ahead of the test subjects in the load.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

With Super Pi, everything is clear, in it Intel always bypasses AMD solutions.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

In Geekbench 5, at standard settings, the Core i7-7700k, although stronger by one core, is at a level similar to the Ryzen 3 3100. In terms of overclocking, the new Ryzen are ahead, the best memory controller makes itself felt.

Cinebench R20 is also clear, with the difference that AMD products are always in the lead in it.

In archiving, Intel’s solutions lag behind competitors, only overclocking allows the Core i7-7700K to bypass AMD’s junior representative, which works in stock.

y-cruncher demonstrates a progression ladder according to the results, again, AMD’s new products bypass opponents, although, taking into account overclocking, all the test subjects are compared.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

At x265, the Ryzen 3 3300X excels, and the lower model is about on par with the Core i7-7700K, but with overclocking, the latter is best at 4k, but at 1080p, new AMD processors.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

In the complex PCMark10, the Core i7-7700K is ahead of everyone in any scenario, in turn, the Core i3-10100 lost almost 15% to its closest rival.

Physics tests in 3DMark favor Intel processors, a similar pattern can be seen in the full-fledged Time Spy test.

Testing in games

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

Despite significant drawdowns of 1%, the low Core i3-10100 got a better final result than the Ryzen 3 3100, although the average fps advantage is minimal. As for the Core i7-7700k, it is in the middle by default, taking into account overclocking, it is, of course, the leader.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

In CS:GO, the Ryzen 3 3100 and Core i3-10100 processors are almost equal, but the Ryzen 3 3300X at factory settings goes almost a quarter far ahead. Overclocking provides a minimal gap between Kaby Lake and Matisse, although this does not apply to the younger CPU.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

We observe an identical situation in DOTA 2.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

Rainbow Six Siege works better on Intel processors, even with overclocking, the Core i7-7700K holds the lead.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

In GTA V, the older AMD processor is a couple of frames ahead of the competitor, while the Ryzen 3 3100 is slightly weaker than the Core i3-10100. Acceleration allows you to overtake rivals in par.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Intel processors are much less likely to allow drawdowns of 1% low, and in terms of the average frame rate, almost everyone is equal, in equal conditions, of course.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 и Ryzen 3 3300X

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, on average fps out of the box, the Intel processors outperform the Ryzen 3 3100, and almost equal the Ryzen 3 3300X. In overclocking, the leaders are compared, but the Core i7-7700K has an unattainable advantage of 1% low.

conclusions

If earlier Intel processors in the overwhelming majority of cases outperformed their competitors in games, now this pattern is no longer so unambiguous. Especially if you take into account the cost of old LGA1151 on the used market, not to mention the stock balances, where the same Core i7-7700K can cost as much as the Core i5-10600K. If you look at a direct competitor in the face of the Core i3-10100, it is usually at the level of the Ryzen 3 3100 and inferior to the Ryzen 3 3300X. But this is only in conditions without overclocking, given the overclocking capabilities of the i3, it does not have the slightest chance against the new Ryzen models, even in games. AMD has released decent processors in their class that are perfect for budget and mid-range systems.
