Fresh from a successful roll-out of mainstream Ryzen 7 and 5 CPUs, AMD’s attack on Intel now extends down into the low-end with its Ryzen 3 1300X and 1200 processors, which the company is making available today.
Intel’s Core i3s are a staple of the high-volume mainstream market. They make up the most popular brand for budget-oriented builds by far. AMD is looking to shake that up with true quad-core processors that sell for even less than two Hyper-Threaded cores. As if a resource advantage wasn’t already compelling enough, Ryzen 3 also enables unlocked multipliers. Intel is ill-prepared to fend off such a combination.
Although there is an unlocked Core i3-7350K at the top of Intel’s Core i3 family, it isn’t particularly popular. The chip is relatively expensive, and it unfortunately requires a pricey Z270-based motherboard for overclocking support. In comparison, AMD lets you overclock Ryzen 3 on cheaper B350-based platforms.
AMD announced a few days ago the arrival on the market of the third pillar of its strategy to be a real alternative to Intel in all ranges of the consumer market. The Ryzen 3 come to compete directly with the most complete Core i3, once again providing a quality / price ratio that overcomes other reluctance to go to AMD.
For now, the models of the Ryzen 3 family that go on sale starting today will be the Ryzen 3 1200 and the Ryzen 3 1300X. Both processors are chips with four cores and four threads at 3.1/3.4 Ghz the first, and 3.5/3.7 GHz the most complete and fastest. I remind you that in both cases, as with all Ryzen processors, the multiplier is unlocked as standard for those who want to venture into overclocking.
