A Closer Look
The Ryzen 3 3100 ships in a simple paperboard box with a window that shows the processor inside. The Ryzen motif of the carbon fiber pattern backdrop hints at this being a 3rd generation Ryzen chip.
AMD includes a Wraith Stealth cooling solution with the Ryzen 3 3100. This is a noise-optimized cooler designed for chips with 65 W TDP.
The Ryzen 3 3100 processor looks like any conventional AMD processor with a large IHS dominating the top, and a 1,331-pin micro-PGA in the bottom. The "Zen 2" CCD chiplet is made in Taiwan, the I/O die in the US, and the two are put together at a facility in China.
The Ryzen 3 3100 can be paired with a fairly big selection of AM4-compatible coolers that have been released since 2017.
