When you think about Intel’s COre i7-7700K processor it definitely falls behind the newer 9th generation Intel Core processors and AMD’s Ryzen 7 processors, but even though it is 4 years old it is still a formidable piece of silicon for gaming builds. According to a alleged Cinebench R15 score it appears that it is being bested by a $120 Ryzen 3 3300X. Looking at the single-thread score the Ryzen 3 3300X is just 1 point behind the i7-7700K.
If this benchmark is believed to be true AMD could bring Core i7-7700K levels of gaming down to just $120! This could definitely disrupt the sub-$200 processor market for gamers, especially with B550 motherboards becoming available next month.
The Ryzen 3 3300X is a 4-core, 8-thread chip with a base clock of 3.8 GHz and a boost clock of 4.3 GHz.
