AMD today announced the Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100—two budget processors bringing the Zen 2 architecture to the entry-level market. These will be available starting in May, followed soon after by the pared-back (and long-rumoured) B550 motherboard chipset in June.

The two Ryzen chips (which were all but confirmed yesterday) both come with four cores and eight threads, and will utilise the same Zen 2 architecture found throughout the 3rd Gen Ryzen lineup—including some of the best CPUs for gaming today. The Ryzen 3 3300X will be rated to a base clock of 3.8GHz, and a boost clock of 4.3GHz. The Ryzen 3 3100 will come clocked a little lower at 3.6GHz base and 3.9GHz boost. Nevertheless, both should be amicable to budget gaming.
