In fact, the new and economical AMD Ryzen 3 3100 seems to be well prepared for overclocking, as this new filtering shows that it can be overclocked on all cores at 4.5 GHz.
AMD Ryzen 3 3100 reaches 4.5 GHz on all cores
The information is courtesy of @_rogame, who dug this data out of the records of 3DMark. The Ryzen 3 3100 is a new processor with 4 cores and 8 threads and can reach a maximum speed of 3.9 GHz with a boost in clock speed.
The 3DMark protocol shows us that the processor is capable of reaching 4.5 GHz on all cores. This is an increase of 600 MHz compared to the boost frequency, which results in a 15% higher performance.
It is important to consider that we don’t know what voltages or CPU cooler was used, and it is possible that the chip used liquid cooling. However, the data table shows that the user ran the chip on an Asus TUF B450M-Pro Gaming, which isn’t the best motherboard for overclocking (none of the B450 boards actually are). This is exciting for those who are looking for an economical processor and want performance with a good OC.
Typically, record seekers buy high-end motherboards with elaborate VRM circuitry, but this overclocking was achieved with a mid-range motherboard, so these frequencies could be possible for anyone.
The Ryzen 3 3100 will officially go on sale on May 21 and costs USD 99. The Ryzen 3 3300X model will also be launched and will cost 120 USD.
