Due to running 318 different CPU/system tests not counting the Linux gaming benchmarks, to get started we are looking at the geometric mean of the Ryzen 3 3300X vs. Core i3 10100 broken down by different workloads / areas of performance. Later in this article is the link to the result file for those wanting to look individually at all 300+ CPU benchmarks.

When looking at the single-threaded audio encode performance of these CPUs with FLAC and MP3 audio formats, the Ryzen 3 3300X was 14% faster than the Core i3 10100.

Or also on the multimedia front, when looking at the AV1 encode/decode performance from dav1d, AOM-AV1, Intel SVT-AV1, Google libgav1, Rust rav1e, and avifenc for AVIF encoding, the Ryzen 3 3300X was 6% faster overall.

If trying to engage in any scientific workloads on a budget, the Ryzen 3 3300X was about 20% faster than the i3-10100 when looking at the performance across Himeno, MrBayes, MAFFT, and QMCPACK for these bioinformatics tests.

Or when stressing these 8c/4t CPUs with NPB, Rodinia, Parboil, and HPCG, the Ryzen 3 3300X was 9.2% faster.

Even for lighter workloads, the Firefox and Chrome performance across various web browser tests favored the Ryzen 3 3300X by 12%.

For developers frequently compiling code, the Ryzen 3 3300X was positioned much better. When compiling Apache, PHP, the Linux kernel, GCC LLVM, FFmpeg, MPlayer, and Build2, the Ryzen 3 3300X was on average compiling code 12% faster than the Core i3 10100 with the same RAM and storage, etc.

For compression workloads with 7-Zip, Gzip, PBZIP2, Zstd, XZ, and Blosc, the Ryzen 3 3300X was 7.5% faster.
