3300x has single ccx, if people wondering the key difference. = better transfer = also better o.c

Welcome to your PreRelease 4200G / 4400G ;-)

This and the 3300x, best deal CPUs at the moment.
Rrp is £99
That 3100 has recently been overclocked to 3300x performance.

I think the highest clock it got was 5.9ghz on a liquid nitrogen system.

It's a beast of a processor and will probably out perform my 1600 in most games.

[Image] 3300x has single ccx and 4 extra threads


They're both 4c/8t processors, it's just that the 3300X has them all on one CCX and the 3100 has two 2c/4t CCX. While that does carry advantages and I'd recommend most people stretch for the 3300X, the 3100 is still an 8 thread CPU.

After all the reading and comments I've been having with people here I would say YES. I'm hoping so because I'm going to get a B450 motherboard along side this processor or the 1600af. I don;t need the B550 because PCIe gen 4 is not something I care in my HTPC rig.

Shame, would love a BIOS update for A320 boards.
Someone tell me if this cclonline.com/pro…50/ is the AF version or the original one released back in 2017?

Not at all, check your motherboard's support list. My Gigabyte B350 supports these, as do many A320 boards.

The stuff about B450 chipsets is getting confused with AMD suggesting they won't support the 4000 series. Totally different matter.

It's the AF. Says in the part number, confirmed in the Q&A section, confirmed by CCL loads of times that they don't have any more stock of the AE version and won't be getting any.

Just got first delivery of 3100 and 3300X CPU's. 3300X Boots fine in Gigabyte A320M-H if anyone interested, so I would be 99% sure so too will the 3100. Awfully cheap set-up for £99 + £39 for the A320 / 3100 combo? Forget future proofing at these prices, take what you get, throw a decent GPU in with the savings and away you go!!

Nope, they should work in most A320's too..
Good Honest Price for the 3100, but CCL have raised the price from £115 for the 3300X on Tuesday, up to £120 yesterday and up to £125 today!! Greedy swines!! Amazon are taking pre-orders for £114.95 still. For £15 the 3300X represents much better all-round value, so long as it is paired with a sensible GPU.. Plus the CCL P&P or wait yonks for delivery!

I was looking at building this using CCL (although I haven’t scanned around for parts) would I be fit with the 2600 over the newer 3300x? I was contemplating using the 3600 as well

I would recommend getting the 3300x instead of the 2600. But remember the 3600 is a 6 core processor and £145 vs £115, just £30 more for an extra 2 cores is worth it.
I would get the 3300x. Wouldn't pay more than £80 for the 3100 or £100 for the 2600 given that you can get a 3300x for £115/£120.

With that build I’d choose the 3300x if at 120 or under, with the 3600 you won’t get the most out of it with a 580, you will be most likely see very little difference between any of these CPU’s with the 580. 3600 will give you more future proofing and more options with higher end GPU,s going forward, but at a fixed budget probably one to leave for now.

Yeah it’s a bit more future proofing over anything tbh which is why I would choose the 3600

Im looking at making a similar build with the 3600. I'd be curious to find out how you get on and if you find some good prices elsewhere!

If you can add £30/40, I would get a decent 500gb M.2 nvme drive instead of the Crucial BX500 and settle for the 3300x. That or get a better b550 motherboard when they are out.

One additional suggestion: You can try to get an used RX580, even if it is the 4gb one (for fhd gaming this shouldn't be an issue, and they are typically sold for ~£80). I think this would be a better value for your build and you can invest the difference in other components or save it for when the current generation gpu prices go down.

I'm currently trying to get a spreadsheet together with best prices from around the web for everything. Pricing out different builds for a 1600AF and 3300x.

My biggest worry atm is the lack of knowledge in the GFX card area. I've never had to buy one previously (the last time I had a PC was over 10 years ago) so all of this is kind of new to me

Use PC part picker. It will find the cheapest pricing across the web and help to see if your parts are compatible with eachother

Yeah, I'm getting them all listed on a SS first as I have a low/mid/high budget then will enter the links from PCPP
40748873-e8FtD.jpgThis is what I've come up with so far for a budget, mid and high end of my budget.

I think I really would prefer the 3600 just for the extra cores, especially with there being not a great deal in price between that and the 3300x. Everything looks like it works together on PCPP
Does this have built in graphics? (Just until I can find a decent low price card)
Thanks
Im thinking of building a pc with the 3300x/3100 or 1600af/2600 whatever gives best value on the day with A320 motherboard to max bang for buck as I will not be overclocking. I have seen many tests with 3600 no differnce btw x570 and a320 at stock and mild overclocks. I will then put this towards a 5600xt/5700 or 2060 but prices are a bit silly at the moment from many places.

For gaming PCs, does AMD Ryzen beat Intel for gaming bang for buck nowadays?

Hi, I was meant to post results with the A320 Boards earlier, forgot, sorry. I tested both the 3100 and the 3300X with Gigabyte's A320M-H. Works a charm, either do. So long as you are F40 or greater BIOS I think it was. The A320 comes with F50 BIOS. No overclocking on the A320 don't forget? So really plump for the 3300X if you want the extra oomph. I used a RTX2060 to try them out. F1 2019 was 182fps av on the 3300x and 174fps on the 3100. Not he whole story, I know, but I had to get the builds out to my customers, so I will test some more with lower end cards tomorrow when I get a couple of hours. My hope was that we could find a decent combo for small money, so I was looking to get a good 3100 / A320 / GPU build for a good budget. Forget upgrades, just a half decent rig that would keep you going for a couple of years, then relegate it to an office or media server or something. It will not pay to upgrade and with us being so close to new CPUs / GPUs etc, it is a hard ask to get a customer to invest a grand in a pc that won't take upgrades readily one way or the other in 12-14 months.. What I have found thus far is neither chip maxes the 2060 out, so perhaps this is as far as you would go as far as GPU is concerned or AMD equivalent, say a decent 14g memory 5600XT or 5700 / 5700XT. Used sensible WD Green M.2 SSD and 2 x 8GB 3000Mhz RAM O/c to 3200Mhz, as these are currently the best value RAM out there. Looks like they are all going to overcharge us in the UK for the 3300X, so any dreams we had of a £15 uplift are out of the window already! Outer Worlds 1440p Ultra ran at over 80fps, Borderlands 3 Ultra 1440p ran at just over 110fps all on 3300X. I will test some more in the morning and see what the differences are, but as I say with a more budget friendly GPU. Looks so far, however, that the 3100 is near enough to be worth the saving. The Internet / YouTube results are all using top tier 2080Ti's etc to remove the CPU bottleneck, but that isn't real world for most mortals, so be interesting to see where we are with a GPU that is maxed out and see what one pairs best. I will try 570, 580, 5500XT, 5600XT and a few NVidias, so 1650, 1650 Super, 1660, 1660 Super and see where the right balance lies. Be nice to get a full set-up sorted for the majority for circa £400? Real work-wise, the internet results speak for themselves already, but if you're gonna work on it, then you really should be looking at a 1600AF or 2600, even 3600, but then you are in to B450+ for the mainboards and the budget starts going out the window.. PS What I did notice thus far is the stock cooler is a touch underwhelming for the 3300X, it gets to close to 80 degrees quite readily and the single core clocks reduce from 4350 to closer to 4Ghz, so this needs to be watched. If you end up needing a better cooling solution on top of the 3300X at an inflated price, then go straight for the 3600, which seems to be coming back down below £150 now in any case. AMD are their own biggest competition ;-p So looking to do 39 mainboard, 99 cpu, 66 ram, 33 m.2, 25 case, PSU £? see what we need and a balance of circa £120 for a GPU to keep us at £400? Only leaves £18 for PSU so far and we are in RX570 territory, so see what results we can squeeze?
Great post Aiden, from what I've seen on gamingnexus the 2070 super is the top end with the 3300x/3100, but that card is well overpriced comparatively.

I think a good balance would be the 1650s/5500xt/580 for max frames at a reasonable budget for 1080p. Above that nvidia cards seem overpriced, 5600/5700/5700xt better value. No rtx or dlss though but very few titles support this currently but something for the future. Will loom forward to hear your testing results.
