New gaming King has arrived to quad core and hexa core neighborhoods by smashing every existing budget Intel and AMD processors into pieces in terms of performance per dollar and price per watt. Meet the new ruler of Budget Gaming CPUs the Ryzen 3 3300X packed with 4 Cores 8 Threads running at 3.8 GHz base 4.3 GHz boost clock speeds and has a unified 16MB L3 cache. It only costs below $130 in North America. All 4 Cores are located together in one chiplet within the CCX (Core Complex), thus making it faster than other AMD equally priced processors when it comes to single or quad core oriented game titles. Without further ado, let’s see how Ryzen 3 3300X dominates it’s rivals in 1080p and 1440p gaming fps (frames per second) benchmarks done by unbiased prominent reviewers.
In CS:GO esports popular game, Ryzen 3 3300X demolishes Core i7-7700K thanks to Zen 2 architecture plus unified core complex structure eliminates latency issues. Getting 442 fps on average and 278 fps on 99th percentile minimum performance the Ryzen 3 3300X marks the new era of budget gaming CPU domination over Intel’s premium mediocre chips.
GTA V triple A game title of 2015 still popular nowadays and it preferred Intel quad core CPUs in the beginning. 5 years passed, still Ryzen chips can’t take the lead from Core i5-9400F but the difference is very negligible. Just 4 fps difference on average performance between Ryzen 3 3300X and Core i5-9400F. GTA V’s old Rage game engine focuses on higher performance of single burst clock speed and quad core configuration.
One of the best Rockstar Games masterpiece is Red Dead Redemption 2 triple A game for PCs and consoles. At last, here the updated Rage engine gives more priority to multi-core CPUs rather than outdated quad cores. This time around at 1080p High Quality settings, Ryzen 3 3300X again dominates both Core i5-9400F and i7-7700K as well by getting 88 fps on average and 68 fps on 1% low minimums. Core i3-91ooF is left behind Ryzen 5 3400G with only hitting 66 fps on average. In 1440p though, things didn’t change much for Ryzen 3 3300X which still has upper hand over Intel CPUs with higher frame rate numbers.
In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, 1080p Ultra Quality settings benchmarks give an edge for Ryzen 3 3300X over Core i5-9400F by gaining 10% better performance and i7-7700K is still left behind with only being 3% slower than Ryzen 3 counterpart. In 1440p, every CPU performance becomes almost negligible since GPU is doing most part of the job. Anyhow, Ryzen 3 3300X prevails by defeating Core i5-9400F with 5% better performance.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint has a great Vulkan Api implementation which cuts CPU overhead but here in 1080p Ultra Quality, Core i5-9400F wins over Ryzen 3 3300X by 5%. In 1440p results, the Intel and AMD CPU performances are becoming unnoticeable but Intel Core i5-9400F is holding the higher ground by getting highest fps number on average results.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege game is tactical shooter with great graphics performance. Muti-core CPUs dominate here on 1% low minimum fps results especially Ryzen 7 3700X scores are higher than any CPUs at 1080p resolution. Somehow Ryzen 3 3300X could defeat Core i5-9400F by big margin in both average and minimum fps performance showdown. Margin of error is too high in 1440p results due to GPU is doing most part of the rendering. Therefore, Ryzen 7 3700X proves that multi-core specs are important too even in 1440p resolution.
In Gears 5, Ryzen 7 3700X, Ryzen 5 3600 and Ryzen 3 3300X have conquered the top 3 charts at 1080p resolution where i7-7700k is not giving up either by showing only 3 fps less than Ryzen 3 3300X processor. Again, locked Core i5-9400F falls down below 110 fps by getting 15% less performance compared to newer Ryzen 3 3300X. In 1440p results, every CPU hits the ceiling in 1% lows and average performance too. Anyway, bursting speed of i7-7700k gives an edge over other processors with extra 4 fps showdown. Ryzen 3 3300X matches each competitor with strong 84 fps minimums and 97 average fps performance which is above expectations met by quad core lovers.
Far Cry New Dawn runs very smooth on Ryzen 3rd Gen and Intel 9th Gen CPUs at 1080p. But i7-7700K is holding up on average above 100 fps and showing 80 fps on 1% low minimum results which is just 3 fps behind Ryzen 3 3300X budget champion. In 1440p, some of latest flagship Ryzen processors have hit GPU bottleneck together with i7-7700K on average fps. Core i5-9400F and Ryzen 3 3300X are marginally equal to each other on both minimum and average fps results.
Another multi-core loving game title is Battlefield V, you may get away with Ryzen 3 3100 CPU running on your system. Every current gen CPUs showing great results above 100 fps for steady performance. At 1080p Ultra Quality, Ryzen 7 3700X comes first to win higher fps numbers and Ryzen 3 3300X is 7% faster than Core i7-7700K in 1% lows. Nothing is changed in 1440p, only i7-7700k dominates the charts with effective single core burst performance by getting 133 fps on average but falling behind Ryzen 3 3300X in minimum fps performance.
System power consumption during stress test in Blender open data is the best measurement method to determine the overall power draw from your socket wall. Amazing 148W power consumption result of Ryzen 3 3300X shows lower consumption levels compared to i7-7700K CPU. However, Core i5-9400F comes with lower power consumption due to being a locked processor. Both Ryzen 3 3300X and 3100 support AMD XFR feature for automatic overclocking if cooling solution is rightly provided.
