Ryzen 2300X benchmarks leak – Overclocked to 4.3GHz

AMD’s Ryzen 2nd Generation CPU has been hugely successful, offering higher levels of performance than their initial Ryzen offerings while also releasing with significantly lower pricing and greater stock thermal solutions than their 1st-gen counterparts had at launch. 

Until now, AMD’s Ryzen 2000 series of processors have had a few gaps in its low-mid-range processor lineup, lacking 12nm Zen offerings to compete with Intel’s Core i3 lineup. While this market segment is somewhat occupied by AMD’s Ryzen Vega 2200G and 2400G APUs, the product stack lacks replacements for AMD’s Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 5 1500X, perfect positions for additional Zen silicon.  

Benchmarks for AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 3 2300X have appeared on Chiphell, revealing what seems to be a 3.5GHz base clock speed and overclocking potential of between 4.275GHz and 4.325GHz.

Quad-core processors are today’s budget performers, with most modern games lacking the ability to make use of more than four threads for a considerable performance advantage. Most games can run well on quad-core processors with reasonable clock speeds, making the prospect of a Ryzen 2300X extremely enticing, especially given its overclockability. 

In the screenshot below we can see a Ryzen 3 2300X processor clocked at 4.275GHz delivering a Cinebench score of 690, which is a great score for what is expected to a low-cost quad-core processor. AMD’s existing 1300X costs around £99 in the UK, pricing which should remain mostly untouched moving into AMD’s 2nd Generation of Ryzen products.

We expect AMD to launch both Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X CPUs alongside their B450 series of motherboards, bringing their Ryzen 2000 series lineup to the lower-end of the CPU market. This release will enable PC builders to create low-cost Ryzen 2-based systems without a complicated BIOS updating process, as all 400-series chipsets are guaranteed to function with Ryzen 2000-series processors out of the box.
