AMD officially launches its new low-end CPU Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 processors. These new quad-core eight-thread processors address Intel’s Core i3 lineup. AMD also announced the long-anticipated B550 chipset that will bring the mainstream an affordable path to the PCIe 4.0 interface. AMD’s $120 Ryzen 3 3300X lands with a 3.8 GHz base frequency and 4.3 GHz boost, while the $99. Ryzen 3 3100 weighs in at a 3.8 GHz base and a 3.9 GHz boost. Both chips come with a capable Wraith Stealth cooler and will be available in May 2020. One of the most interesting part about the new Ryzen 3 chips is that of 65W TDP (thermal design power). AMD also announced that B550 motherboards, which will support the PCIe 4.0 interface present on the new Ryzen 3 models, will land June 16, 2020. The new AMD motherboard will come from OEMs like ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI, among the other usual players. AMD’s new processors didn’t come to replace the Ryzen 3 2300X, instead, they replace Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G APUs, which come with comparatively beefy graphics, to tackle Intel’s Core i3 lineup. But Ryzen 3 3300X and 3100 come without an integrated graphics engine.
