Since it was released at the same time as the 3300X, AMD’s Ryzen 3 3100 was unable to compete.
In and of itself, this is a reliable little processor that, for $99, provides adequate performance for entry-level video games.
The 3300X had a lot more features, and it only cost $20 more, but that was a problem. You didn’t want this chip; you wanted that one instead.
However, Black Friday will soon be coming to attack your pocketbook, and the price of this chip may change then.
While it is true that AMD has raised costs for its Zen 3 processors, back when Zen 2 was trending, the company did something a little different and introduced two chips that were aimed firmly at budget gamers.
