AMD Launches Two Entry-Level Desktop Processor in Ryzen 3 Series

After launching few high-end desktop processors this year, AMD has now launched two entry-level desktop processors in the Ryzen 3 series, which is believed to compete directly with low-end Intel i3 processors. Now, experts find that despite the processors being budget-friendly, their performances are quite impressive, especially in comparison with rival Intel’s same range processors.

The Ryzen 3 series includes two desktop processor, Ryzen 3 1200, which is having four cores along with four threads and the base clock speed is 3.1 GHz. As far as another model is concerned, the Ryzen 3 1300X, which also has four cores and four threads but its base clock speed is comparatively higher than 1200 model i.e. 3.5 GHz.

Talking about the Ryzen 3 1200, we must say that this entry-level budget friendly desktop processor stands directly against the Intel’s i3-7100 processor, which has two cores and 4 threads while the Ryzen 3 1200 has 4 cores and 4 threads. Despite having fewer cores, Intel provides more clock speed than Ryzen but well, seeing the price point, it can be ignored.

Coming to the Ryzen 3 1300X, which stands directly against the Intel’s i3-7300 that comes with two cores and four threads but boasts a clock speed of 4.0 GHz which is comparatively larger than Ryzen 3 1300X but again seeing the price point, AMD’s 1300X seems a good option.

As per as details, the Ryzen 3 1200 desktop processor is available for $109, which is much lesser than the Intel’s same range processor. And, the Ryzen 3 1300X is available for $129, which is again lesser than other competitive processors. So, if you are a normal user, who doesn’t play high-end games or use high-end apps, then surely you can go with these processors.
