AMD Ryzen 3 3300U is a powerful 64-bit quad core mobile APU in both laptops and tablets with 4 cores and 4 threads. Like the Ryzen 3 2300U, it offers no support for simultaneous multithreading. Compatibility-wise, this is AMD Socket FP5 processor with a default TDP of 15W, and a cTDP of 12W – 35W. The chip supports DDR4 Dual-channel memory interface and Bluetooth 4.0. The processor is built using the Zen+ microarchitecture, codename Picasso. The chip’s based on 12 nm processing technology, which increases its performance due to improved efficiency when it comes to power consumption and heat dissipation – and has a locked multiplier.
This CPU features a fast clock speed of 3.5GHz with up to 4MB L3 cache and is equipped with Radeon Vega 6 Graphics for immersive high-quality visuals that are smooth even during complex tasks. This chip is ideal for many different use cases including everyday computing, hardcore gaming, VR experiences, video editing or streaming, rendering images on the go or on your TV screen. AMD Ryzen 3 3300U won’t disappoint you when combined with an excellent graphics card like the AMD Radeon RX 560X GPU. The chip also offers AMD Wraith Spire cooling solution with near-silent operation. It has a fan speed of up to 2,200 RPM and is very quiet, but it’s still able to keep your system cool during intense workloads.
Additionally, the processor features the second generation of AMD’s Precision Boost technology which enables intelligent frequency-scaling across all cores to maximize performance within the TDP envelope. This improvement is due to the greater ability to track the power consumption of each core locally. This reduces average power consumption, which in turn can enable higher sustained performance for heavily-threaded applications during periods of high workloads.
In terms of performance, the Ryzen 3 3300U is much better than the standard AM1 APU (AMD’s first Ryzen processors were based on AMD’s first generation of Ryzen micro-architecture, codename Summit Ridge). It has an amazing performance per watt point. When compared to AMD’s previous generation of mobile chips it is twice as fast, even though it still uses less than 50% more power.
Note: The Ryzen 3000U series offers a number of improvements over previous generations. These include higher maximum boost frequencies, increased pre-fulfillment speed, higher memory latency capabilities and greater L3 cache per core. AMD has achieved these improvements through both process shrinks and architectural enhancements.
