AMD Ryzen 3 3100 + Ryzen 3 3300X Offering Great Budget Linux CPU Performance
Lastly is a look at the geometric mean of 50 benchmarks that were run across all nineteen tested processors on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
The Ryzen 3 3300X was delivering about 8% better performance than the Core i5 9400F or entertaingly about 5% better performance as the once high-end Core i7 7700K Kabylake. The Ryzen 3 3100 saw its performance nearly tied to the Core i5 9400F.
Overall these are quite capable processors at around $100~120 USD delivering quite decent performance especially with a 65 Watt TDP. We have been very impressed with Zen 2 at the high-end of the stack and now with these new Ryzen 3 processors AMD is able to deliver very competitive offerings at the bottom end of the spectrum.
Especially if you have an Intel Haswell era system or older or any pre-Zen AMD system, these new Ryzen 3 parts deliver significant value and performance.
More benchmarks on these Ryzen 3 3100/3300X processors, including Linux gaming capabilities, will be coming in follow-up articles. If you want to see how your own Linux system(s) compare to these results, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 2005064-NI-NEWCOMPAR06.
