AMD Ryzen 3 3300U Review - Expectations
To be honest, some mobile CPUs and APUs of AMD achieved to become market changer players for laptop gaming. But, is this CPU one of them? Is Ryzen 3 3300U good for gaming?
First of all, it is not fair to say that this CPU is designed for mobile gaming. But we know that “gaming” can sometimes have a broader meaning. Ryzen 3 3300U is not good for high-performance gaming, obviously. Actually, it’s mostly used in the laptops that are designed to be low-profile and cheap. We generally see the low-end systems benefiting from the Ryzen 3 3300U. For example; There are some “Mini PCs” built around it.
Since R3 3300U is not that fancy, there is a huge advantage coming from its price. You may have one of those Mini PCs or laptops at around 400 US Dollars. Therefore, you get a very good daily-use computer for a relatively cheaper price. We focused mainly on the gaming abilities of today's CPUs but people still need some moderate systems. Some users use separate systems for their office work, daily-use, and gaming. So, paying less does not necessarily mean purchasing an incompetent product if the product is designed to offer what you really need. In this case, it might be an extra computer to carry around for fundamental office work, school papers, etc.
As long as it meets your expectations from a computer system, it is a good quality CPU with an integrated Radeon Vega 6 Graphics card. It means you don’t need to pay extra for a GPU. That’s why it seems like a real price/performance CPU.
