Woah 4.5 GHz on all 4 cores for only $99!? … If this isn’t one of the BEST value processor in terms of performance/price … then I don’t know what is!
Taken from TPU … One of the perks of AMD’s Ryzen processor line is unlocked base-clock multiplier across the board, even with its upcoming $99 Ryzen 3 3100 quad-core processor. _rogame unearthed a Futuremark SystemInfo database submission confirming a 4.50 GHz all-core overclock, achieved on an inexpensive ASUS TUF Gaming B450M-Pro motherboard, with 16 GB of dual-channel DDR4-3200 memory.
Also, SMT is left untouched, as the processor has all 8 logical processors (threads) enabled. Just to show this isn’t a one-off, another FM database submission shows a 4.40 GHz all-core OC on the Ryzen 3 3100, with a similarly inexpensive MSI B450M Bazooka Plus motherboard, and 16 GB of dual-channel DDR4-3000 memory. The unlocked multiplier appears to add tremendous value to this two-figure chip.
