AMD’s Budget Ryzen 3 3100 Hits 4.6 GHz In Leaked Benchmarks

As the entry CPU for the latest Ryzen 3000 series, AMD’s Ryzen 3 3100 hasn’t gained a whole lot of attention so far – that is until these benchmarks were leaked. 

AMD’s Ryzen 3 3100 is a quad-core CPU designed with budget PC builders in mind. It’s based on the latest generation Zen 2 architecture and is priced around $99. 

According to a Geekbench 5 entry, this chip can reach an impressive 4.6 GHz speed. This benchmark was first spotted by hardware leaker @_rogame

While it’s common to see a range of different reports about CPU performance for new chips, these results seem to have blown our expectations out of the water. If this leak is true, it means that budget builders are going to get fantastic value for money if they purchase the Ryzen 3 3100. 

How Was The Ryzen 3 3100 Tested?

The Geekbench 5 listing where a 4.6 GHz overclock was achieved was tested on an ASRock X570 Pro4 motherboard

@_rogame also managed to find a 3DMark database entry which shows the Ryzen 3 3100 CPU running at 4.5 GHz with an ASUS TUF B450M-Pro Gaming motherboard. 

These two leaked benchmarks seem to point towards the high clock speeds being a bit more realistic. While it’s still a leak at the end of the day and we can’t guarantee its authenticity 100%, these figures make for some very interesting reading. 

Ryzen 3 3100 Specifications

The specifications of this budget processor include four cores and eight threads, a 3.6 GHz base clock, and up to a 3.9 GHz max boost clock at stock settings. There’s also 16 MB of L3 cache and a 65 W TDP. 

This processor is built with the same Zen 2 architecture as others in the line, which includes PCIe 4.0 support when paired with an X570 or B550 motherboard. 

For those looking into budget builds, these benchmark figures are definitely impressive. If we hear any confirmation on these figures or updates on the Ryzen processors, we will keep you updated.
