Ryzen 3 best budget gaming CPU
If you want to buy a new CPU, Ryzen 3 is the one that budget gamers should point at.
The CPU itself has 4 cores and costs as little as $109 right now on Amazon for the 1200 version and $130 for the 1300X version. Depending on your needs, you might want to go with 1200 because it is cheaper but also you can play every kind of game with it. Even GTA V can be played if you pair Ryzen 3 with a GTX 1050. The game itself is fully playable on 1080p so no worries for those folks who want to play full HD.
The majority of gamers only want full HD since 4K is not a big problem right now. Gamers are more interested in performance rather than graphics, especially not a big problem with higher the resolution. This is because 4K doesn't offer much quality jump over 1080p. Another thing to mention is that a computer which can play at 4K costs way more than trying to play 1080p. Not only that but the price jump of GPUs made it even worse for gamers to try and pick a new GPU. This is a real problem in the gaming world as certain GPU manufacturers (points to AMD -.-) are focusing their GPUs more for miners as they pay way more than gamers for a GPU.
More to come as new CPUs come out, since AMD revealed news about new upcoming CPUs which are much more advanced than the ones we have seen so far. I don't know what you think about it, but certainly is a good thing for the CPU industry! Leave a comment below so others know your opinion!
