Although AMD had already revealed information about the Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X before, we hadn’t gotten any word about its Indian pricing. Well, today AMD has officially confirmed what the Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X Indian pricing will be.
|Indian Prices (INR)|
|Ryzen 3 3100||INR 7,290 + GST|
|Ryzen 3 3300X||INR 9,490 + GST|
That’s a little over the US prices of $99 and $120 respectively but still provide some excellent value. We’ve gone over how the Ryzen 3 3300X could be the default budget gaming CPU that gamers will flock to. Taking into account the 18% GST on computer electronics, the 3300X comes just under Rs. 12000.
If however, you’ve got more to spend on your processor, you could get the Ryzen 5 3600 for Rs. 15,600 here. Stretching your budget will get you 2 extra cores along with hyperthreading, so for heavy multitaskers out there it might be the better proposition.
For most gamers though getting a quad-core Zen 2 CPU under 12k INR is a pretty good deal. Keep in mind that a 4 core/8 thread combination for 1080p gaming works pretty well. AMD claims that the Ryzen 3 3300X beats the Intel Core i5-9400F, which used to a go-to budget gaming CPU for a long time. Right now, you can get the i5-9400F for the same price, thereby providing a lower value. What’s more, the 3100 is also a competent gaming CPU, beating the Core i7-7700K of yesteryear.
As for those of you who are confused between the 3100 and 3300X, fret not as we’ve explained the architectural differences here. There’s also the B550 motherboards that come with the new Zen 2 chips. Those mobos are also starting at $100, so prices in India should translate well around or under INR 15000. And the best part is they will also support Zen 3! We’ll also have an in-depth comparison between the budget B450 and upcoming B550 motherboards soon.
Now now, what about Intel’s 10th gen lineup you say? Well, we’ll have more comparisons regarding the same soon. But for now, it’s pretty clear just how much value there is in AMD’s budget lineup now.
