The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X, which is priced at $129, comes with a 3.4 GHz base clock and 3.7 GHz Boost. It offers four real cores that manage to beat the dual-core Intel Core i3-7300 with HyperThreading, which is significantly more expensive at the same time.

So the new 1300 and 1200 parts are still harvested 2-CCX chips with the extra issue of not supporting high RAM frequencies. Wow... I would expect nothing less from AMD; a truly useless product! It's well known that cross-CCX latency is the main culprit behind Ryzen's poor performance in gaming and memory-sensitive applications. The 1300 losses to Intel's dual core 7300 in games and most other benchmarks.

Motherboard AIB's still need to get their heads out of their asses and release more lower end ITX mobos. This would've been a perfect contender for a living room HTPC/gaming rig.

Geez what's up with the relatively high idle power consumption?

Excuse me, I'm in my twenties and would love to have a Ryzen APU rig as well :toast:

In 4k gaming the fastest processor of the chart has only a 3,5% advantage over a r3 1300x. If you stop thinking about this, it feels insane.

Why is that? Resolution doesn't increase the CPU workload significantly, as the CPU is used for getting all of the details and physics organized which is pretty much entirely independent of resolution.

This is also why I can game on two 4k screens with my 7700HQ without issue. ;)

Yes, but if you have the dough for a GPU capable of 4k, you're probably not looking to save on the CPU.

There are great compared to similar i3 parts. Yet I'm looking at the 7600k: also a true 4 core chip, roughly the same frequency, but it beats 1300x both in performance and in power usage. Granted, 1300x is significantly cheaper, but I'm looking at the overall architecture here.

I'll echo the conclusion and previous postings: would be nice if it were an APU. When that happens I'll be looking to switch out the core of my A8-5500 system for one.

The R3 actually destroys i3 (in fact, it was already destroyed by G4560) and i5 except for the 7600K. Former is just not enough with 2 cores and is expensive compared to R3, the latter is way more expensive with not offering enough plus in games. The palette seems like: g4560 to 7700K. Everything between is Ryzen.

Making these entry levels chips as APU would have been more useful for the intended audience.

loved the 720p benchmarks part. That's what I look for on all cpu review and rarely can find it! (Hardocp does it too). I'm an high refresh gamer (240hz) and we can clearly see AMD just cant keep up. On some cases Intel i5 has almost double framerate!! That is crazy really :D :D :D

Those wanting to build non-gaming desktops can only choose between Core i3 and AMD's new 7th generation "Bristol Ridge" socket AM4 APUs right now
Wait, Bristol Ridge APUs are publicly available for building a system? I have only seen them on major OEM boxes, aka HP, etc or pulls on eBay.

This cpu has SMT? CTRL+C/V too much?
  • Single-threaded performance still lags behind competing Intel chips
  • Gaming performance slightly behind Intel chips
  • Lacks integrated graphics
  • Setup complicated (memory, HPET, CCX, SMT, and power profile)
  • Requires optimized apps of which there are not many

If your looking to do high end gaming you shouldn't buy anything less then a i7 or Ryzen 7 anyway.....
