Ryzen 3 Budget or Bust?

The crew at Real Hardware Reviews pose the question, is the Ryzen 3 Budget or Bust? We have the same questions here, we reached out to AMD for a Ryzen 7 sample for our test bench but we haven't had much luck procuring a test kit for our reviews.

So far we have taken a close look at most of AMD’s Ryzen line-up and, while there have been variances from model to model, overall both the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 series have indeed lived up to expectations. Their combination of performance, price, and technological innovation means it really is hard to go wrong with nearly any Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 CPU… as both series offer incredible value for their perspective classes. We have however fielded many questions about their lower priced Ryzen 3 siblings.
