We have a new comparison of the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X that puts it up against the Intel Core i3-10300, a comparison that seems to be fairer as they compete for the same market segment.
AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is faster than the Intel Core i3-10300
The latest leak from @TUM_APISAK compares the Ryzen 3 3300X in the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark with the upcoming Intel Core i3-10300.
In the next few weeks, we will most likely see more Comet Lake S desktop CPUs against several Ryzen processors as Intel CPUs will be released soon. However, these two new low-end Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 CPUs could be very problematic for Intel.
The question that has prevailed so far is whether the new Ryzen 3 3300X is more powerful than the new Core i3 of the 10th generation. The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X scored 5,395 points in the 3DMark Time Spy test, while the Core i3-10300 scored about 5,221 points.
There is not much difference, but still, the Ryzen CPU wins with 3.3%. Obviously, the Matisse CPU will have a lower power consumption due to the 7nm process, even if it is designed with 65W TDP.
Meanwhile, Intel’s counterpart, rumored to be 62W TDP, is forced to get more power due to its poor architecture. Both CPUs have the same 4 cores and 8 threads with practically similar clock rates, 3.8/4.3 (AMD) vs. 3.7/4.3 (Intel) GHz.
Another very important factor is price. The official cost of the i3-10300 is $150, while the Ryzen 3 3300X costs only $120. In addition, the use of Intel CPUs will require new motherboards, while AMD will keep its AM4 sockets. We’ll have everything much clearer when both are released, but things don’t look good for Intel.
