First Benchmarks, Photo of AMD's Ryzen 3 2300X Surface

As AMD is moving closer towards completing its staggered Ryzen 2000 series' launch, first benchmarks and silicon photos have surfaced. AMD's Ryzen 3 2300X is a quad-core solution that leverages the Zen+ architecture on the 12 nm process, improving performance and power consumption over the original Ryzen 3 1300X. Alongside the new CPU line, AMD is also expected to refresh its chipset offerings, with a revised B450 superseding the B350 chipset - though users can drop in their Ryzen 2000 series processors on 300-series chipsets, provided they have the adequate BIOS already installed.

The Ryzen 3 2300X, paired with a BIOSTAR X370 motherboard, was put through its paces under CPU-Z (where it scored 509 and 2020 points in the single and multi-thread benchmarks respectively), as well as in Cinebench (where it scored 690 points). The 2300X can seemingly boost up to 4.2 GHz without any manual overclocking from its 3.5 GHz base clock - an improvement of around 500 MHz in the XFR-enabled boost over its predecessor, which only hit 3.7 GHz.
The overall value proposition of this 2300X CPU is somewhat marred, though, by the existence of the 2200G APU - a quad-core solution as well, which also packs in integrated Vega 8 graphics - for $99. And it's unlikely the Ryzen 3 2300X will be priced much lower than the $125 AMD was asking for its 1300X processor, which already looked bad compared to the 2200G. It seems AMD has a missed opportunity in its hands to further differentiate these two product lines by enabling SMT on one of them. If anything, I'd suggest doing so on the APU side of the equation - thus strengthening AMD's performance compared to Intel's i3 CPUs, which all pack integrated graphics, but lack any sort of SMT support.

This CPU begs for a 90$ price tag. Me too.

Not bad results. My old 7600K @ 5GHz got 800pts on cinebench, so pretty nice for an entry-level CPU.

dont forget your 7600k TDP ‎91W, ryzen 3 2300x only TDP 65W

Brutal steps forward for this price point

Intel needs to worry

Shhh...no one will believe you....but they need to worry just like another competitor needs to worry too but no one will believe that either.... end of 2019 beginning of 2020 will make a lot of folks say wow how did that happen.....

Thing is , they don't need to undercut Intel anymore in this low end segment. That's what happens when you sell overpriced dual-cores for an entire decade , if anyone is to drop prices it should be Intel.

And the same overpriced quad cores, with cut-down entry/mid level motherboards discarded each year. Hell, I'm still salty about H310, once those dual core Athlon APUs arrive, things are going to be very fun on the low end.

You Cant use TDP to anything. Both intel and AMD cpus use more than They Said.

The TDP is The cpu base clock, not The boost freq.

And that is how Intel gets around it with Coffee Lake, they set ridiculously low base clocks when their CPUs hardly every runs at that.

2200G is a better deal. I will not trade 300Mhz for strong IGP. It is useful for emergency case like GPU RMA or you sell your old GPU and waiting to buy a new one.

Ok so this is an R3 2300X, To me when you said Ryzen 3 I was like that is not due out till,
Ryzen 1*** 2017, Ryzen+ 2***, 2018, Ryzen2 3*** 2019, Ryzen2+ 4*** 2020(Tentative), Ryzen 3 5*** 2021...

It has more cache than the APU ones, and it's a proper Zen+.
The 2200G is still a better deal, thanks to what a 1030 costs right now.

For a moment there, I thought AMD had launched a SKU for ultramobile devices, and you'd got hold of a photo of a new AMD-based Microsoft Surface...

That's because by that time AMD will have Zen 2 on the market and Zen 2 represents a real architectural upgrade and not just minor tweaks. Wait for it folks, Zen 2 is going to be the boot to Intel's balls.

Unless of course Intel pulls something out of their behinds in the next couple of months. Nah... I doubt it.

If anybody took the time to look at the pics, it's actually over 4.3GHz. TPU SMH. Multi of 43.25 on a 100MHz bus....

Single core is looking excellent, push it further amd

This thing beats out my old i5-3570K at stock speeds.
I'm glad I sold it and upgraded.

Nice upgrade - What's the single core on that thing?

just did a run as I didn't have single core.

That's fair - My x5650 get's 140ish single and 1030ish multi - nice cpu mate.
