It seems that AMD plans to deliver a 3300X processor for 120 dollars performance levels up to i7-7700K with its upcoming Ryzen 3, at least according to filtered results from Geekbench 4 (courtesy of TUM-APISAK on Twitter) and Cinebench R15. The i7-7700K was one of Intel’s flagships about 3 years ago, AMD reduced this processor to the budget category after years of intense competition.

The Geekbench results for the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X processor are slightly higher than those for Intel’s Kaby Lake (i7-7700K), which makes the budget-oriented AMD Ryzen 3 a great chip in terms of value for money.
