The two most anticipated entry-level AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs; Ryzen 3 1300X and 1200 are finally announced and will be coming out July 27, 2017. According to rumored news, the Ryzen 1300X will cost $129 while Ryzen 3 1200 will cost $109. This puts AMD ahead of Intel’s Core i3 CPUs as they almost cost double the rumored price of entry level Ryzen 3 CPUs.
Specification wise, the Ryzen 3 1300X and 1200 comes with 4 cores and 4 threads. AMD not only surpasses the competition in low cost but it gives the users and edge over Intel i3 CPUs. Current Intel’s i3 CPUs come with 2 Cores and 2 Threads, while AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs will have double cores and threads than its rivals.
Since Intel will roll out improved i3 CPUs later this year, with 4 cores, no thread and no hyperthreading, AMD Ryzen 3 CPUs are still a better option for obvious reasons. First, Ryzen 3 1300X and 1200 are coming out this July, with double cores and threads and if rumored prices become official, Ryzen 3 will beat the competition in terms of performance, cheapness and CPU diversity in the market.
It comes down to personal preferences, since Intel has dominated the PC market since long and AMD with Ryzen family is a rising player. But, statistically, you cannot deny how much Ryzen family offers the performance, core count, more threads with lower cost than Intel’s counterpart CPUs.
