American computer processor developer AMD has released two models of its Ryzen 3 series desktop processor ? the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and AMD Ryzen 3 1200 CPUs.
The two Ryzen 3 processors are equipped with quad-core performance for gaming and computing, joining the AMD Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 desktop processors in the company’s large and growing AM4 motherboard ecosystem.
“These past few months have been an exciting period for AMD with the global launch of Ryzen 7, designed for even the most demanding power users, and the release of Ryzen 5, which meets and even exceeds the needs of serious prosumers,” said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager for computing and graphics group at AMD.
“Ryzen 3 is a significant addition to our Ryzen desktop processor lineup, scaling industry leading responsiveness and performance into a budget-friendly package for mainstream users. AMD’s Ryzen processor line reenergizes innovation and competition across the entire PC market, providing consumers with a newfound selection of processors that can fulfill their computing needs at virtually every price point.”
The Ryzen 3 lineup includes two 4-core, 4-thread desktop CPUs available for purchase, both of which support the new AM4 platform found throughout the entire mainstream Ryzen processor family. Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 are designed to deliver optimum performance for e-sports gaming and computing applications.
Like all socket AM4 processors, Ryzen 3 is multiplier-unlocked to provide even more performance to users who appreciate the freedom to overclock.
Ryzen 3 1300X (P7,250) delivers a base clock of 3.5 GHz, a precision boost of 3.7 GHz, and can clock as high as 3.9 GHz with XFR in the presence of premium cooling; while the Ryzen 3 1200 (P6,000) maintains a base clock of 3.1 GHz and a precision boost of 3.4 GHz.
Just like the entire Ryzen lineup, all Ryzen 3 processors feature an artificial intelligence inside that learns about your applications to send workloads down to CPU for optimized performance.
The series is also AMD VR Ready and is available worldwide.
