AMD Introduces Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X Desktop Processors and B550 Chipset Motherboards

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and AMD Ryzen 3 3300X

Continuing to demonstrate its leadership in the consumer desktop space, AMD has announced the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and AMD Ryzen 3 3300X representing the fastest ever AMD Ryzen 3 desktop processors bringing world-class desktop performance to mainstream gamers. They also stand for AMD’s commitment to improving CPU performance and technologies for consumers by enabling SMT on a Ryzen 3 desktop processor for the very first time.

The processors take advantage of 18 MB Cache, delivering dramatic memory latency reduction, translating directly to smoother, faster gaming performance for high framerates in CPU-heavy games. Further, with four cores, eight threads, and AMD SMT technology, the new Ryzen 3 processors provide incredible multitasking performance and responsiveness that consumers need.

The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 offers:

  • Up to 20% more gaming performance than the competition
  • Up to 75% more creator performance than the competition

AMD B550 Chipset

The new B550 chipset for socket AM4 is the latest addition to the AMD 500 Series chipset family with support for the industry-leading AMD Ryzen 3000 Series desktop processors. The upcoming B550 motherboards are the only mainstream modern chipset with compatibility for PCIe 4.0, unlocking twice the bandwidth of B450 motherboards for high-speed, high-power performance in gaming and multitasking.

Availability

The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and AMD Ryzen 3 3300X are expected to be available from leading retailers and etailers worldwide beginning May 21, 2020. AMD B550 motherboards are expected to be available beginning June 16, 2020, from ODM partners including ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Colorful, GIGABYTE, and MSI at leading retailers and etailers.

  1. With the launch of these new CPUs and motherboard chipsets so close together, it makes me wonder if they are intended to go together from a power consumption standpoint. Will the B550 chipset boards also be able to handle 3600/3600X/3700/3700X? I realize the TDP ratings are the same but when you really tax the latter you're going to get some separation.

    I'm going to say yes but it will depend on the board layout as to how well the board "handles" the higher TDP
