In order to bring the “Zen 2” core architecture to business users, gamers, and creators worldwide by leveraging Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT) technology for increased productivity, AMD has introduced the newest additions to the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processor family.
This includes the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and AMD Ryzen 3 3300X processors along with AMD B550 Chipset for Socket AM4 designed for 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processors with more than 60 designs in development.
Asserting that games and applications are becoming more and more demanding, and with this, users are demanding more from their PCs, Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit, said, “With the addition of these new AMD Ryzen 3 desktop processors, we are continuing this commitment with our mainstream gaming customers. We’ve taken performance up a level, doubling the processing threads of our Ryzen 3 processors to propel gaming and multitasking experiences to new heights.”
The company claims that the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and AMD Ryzen 3 3300X represent the fastest-ever AMD Ryzen 3 desktop processors2, bringing world class desktop performance to mainstream gamers. Taking advantage of 18MB Cache, AMD asserts that the processors deliver memory latency reduction, translating directly to smoother, faster-gaming performance for high framerates in CPU-heavy games.
With four cores, eight threads, and AMD SMT technology, the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 offers up to 20 percent gaming performance and up to 75 percent creator performance than the competition.
Apart from desktop processors, the company also launched the AMD B550 chipset. AMD revealed that the new B550 chipset for socket AM4 is the latest addition to the AMD 500 Series chipset family with support for the AMD Ryzen 3000 Series desktop processors.
