Battle between two unreleased AMD and Intel mainstream budget CPUs had taken place in Time Spy CPU score benchmark. They are both quad core with double thread counts. Official name of Ryzen 3 3300X is confirmed by AMD last 3 days ago. It belongs to Matisse 7nm Ryzen 3000 Desktop family. Whereas, Intel has confirmed i3-10300 processor as Comet Lake-S Desktop variant via strong leaks last two weeks.
In hardly fought battle, Ryzen 3 3300X came out victorious over i3-10300 CPU by 3.3% higher score in Time Spy CPU benchmark. Everyone could predict this results since Ryzen 3 3300X official specs include enormous 16MB L3 cache and unified CCX (Core Complex) structure compared to it’s little brother Ryzen 3 3100 according to leaks. It means 4 cores are located together in one CCX package within one chiplet rather separated from each other like Ryzen 7 3700X 8 cores are divided into two chiplets. Well, if you see above marketing materials you can read ” So Powerful. It can Defeat The Intel Core i5″. Which generation Core i5, that’s anyone’s guess?!
Obviously, Intel Core i3-10300 is 4 Core 8 Thread running on Base 3.7 GHz and Boost 4.3 GHz based on Comet Lake 14nm+++ iteration (Basically it’s Skylake) architecture. In contrast Ryzen 3 3300X has higher base clock of 3.8 GHz and potentially effective boost speed up to 4.3 GHz but in Time Spy leak by TUM_Apisak you may notice little jump in Boost frequency confirmed at 4.34 GHz. In theory, this performance of Ryzen 3 3300X might defeat Intel Core i5-7600K and i5-8400 seeing at how it could beat Core i3-10300 with little improved architecture. By having a sweet price point at $120 the Ryzen 3 3300X will be a new king of budget gamers concering on their single core oriented online game titles such as worse optimized PUBG, legendary CS:GO, excellent DOOM Eternal, most popular Fortnite and tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege.
