New benchmarks have come to light for the AMD Ryzen 3 2300X processor, the quad-core and four-thread processor.. This new processor is called to replace the current AMD Ryzen 3 1300X, but will have a much improved boost rate, which can reach up to 4.2 GHz in clock speed.
AMD is following almost the same schedule for its processor launches this year as it did last year. For the first Ryzen Generation, AMD first introduced the Ryzen 5 1600 and 1600X, followed by the Ryzen 7 1700, 1700X and 1800X. To present a few months later, at the end of July, the processors Ryzen 5 1400, Ryzen 5 1500X, followed by the Ryzen 3 1300 and Ryzen 3 1200, followed immediately by the Threadripper processors. Much we do not believe that we are going to be mistaken in that AMD follows that same scheme this year.
If AMD has already introduced the processors AMD Ryzen May 2600 and 2600x, along with Ryzen July 2700 and 2700X, most likely at the end of July, the manufacturer present all the models that are missing from the Ryzen range of 2nd Generation : the Ryzen 5 2500X and Ryzen 3 2300X. As you can see, in the list we have not included the supposed Ryzen 5 2400 and Ryzen 3 2200 processors. We have not included them because they already exist in the market: they are AMD APUs of the G series.
The AMD Ryzen 3 2300X processor is going to be a 4-core, four-wire model, which means it will not have the SMT activated. Very much in line with the old Intel Core i5 processors or the current Core i3. That means you must compete with the Intel Core i3 -8100, 8300 and 8350K models. Assuming your selling price remains similar to the current AMD Ryzen 3 1300X (which would be more logical to this company), price is expected to compete with Intel Core i3-8300.
The benchmarks that have been “filtered” belong to the CPU-Z program and the Cinebench R15 program. In both cases, we can see a decently competitive processor to be part of the AMD input range. Yes, it is true that it can be quite a distance from your older brothers with a greater number of cores and processing threads. However, and to give you a little idea of the performance of this processor, it gets a score very similar to that obtained by the Intel Core i7-2600K. Yes, we already know that it is a processor from quite a few years ago, but it is still a model with eight threads that a four-wire model is now beating.
