No. Why that benchmark?

I use it when comparing the various AMD processors. I built a system with an $80 R5 1600 around Christmas, and I was wondering if the 3300X would be a decent upgrade for 50% more $. The numbering system of 3300X vs 1600 would seem to indicate a higher performance level. However, this is not always the case, so I like to compare cpumarks before plunking down the cash.

Do not use the product name to determine performance.

3300x = 4c/8t Zen2
1600 = 6c/12t Zen1

Per core, 3300x is faster, but the 1600 has 50% more cores.

Don't use one benchmark to determine differences in performance. The Anandtech review I pasted has the 1600 and 3300X benched heads-up against one another. Read it.

I looked the article over twice, and I'm seeing lots of price charts and such, and I do see a couple of mentions of the 1600. However, I do not actually see any head to head benchmark tests.

The latest that I've seen is that the 3300x is only about 6% to 7% better performing than the R5 1600 was, at about a 50% increase in cost. In essence, this appears to be the market replacement FOR the R5 1600, but they won't be selling it at $80 any more. The new price is $120.

This is what you're looking for:

. . . huh? The entire benchmark article for the 3100 and 3300x has the 1600 in every benchmark. How did you miss that?



That isn't a price chart.

Also, neither the 3100 or3300x replace a 6c CPU. It's a replacement for the old R3 CPUs and the R5 1400.

If you got an R5 1600 for $80, you were lucky. That was a sale price. It was never the MSRP.

Thanks for the benchmarks - I had been looking around for those.
MSRP is a completely fake number. Actual price selling at retail is what I pay attention to.
It was selling for that $79.95 price at Micro Center for more than a year, so I don't think we can consider that "on sale",
it was their "for sale", everyday low price. I think it's hilarious that I could actually take the used processor out of my PC and
sell it used right now for more than I paid for it retail.

Trouble is, then I'd have to find a replacement - probably a 3600, but I've been waiting for the price to drop down to $150.
