The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X may end up beating the Intel Core i7-7700K

The Intel Core i7-7700K isn’t nearly as fast as the Core i7-9700K, but it remains on of the best processors for gaming rigs. That may be about to change if AMD has something to say about it.

According to a leaked benchmark found by CPUmonkey, AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 3 3300X comes within just 0.5% of the 7th-generation Kaby Lake chip in terms of single-core performance.

Since single-core performance doesn’t always scale up the same for different processors, it remains to be seen how well the Ryzen 3 3300X actually performs when running all four of its cores. What we do know is that the Ryzen 3 3300X has a base clock of 3.8 GHz, with boost to 4.3 GHz, with 65W TDP and 18 MB total cache.
