PUBG is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole in 2017. The PC and console versions of the game have sold over 60 million units. As of May 2020, there are just shy of 600,000 people playing PUBG daily on the Steam platform.
To benchmark PUBG we used a game replay from a chicken dinner match that we played in squads on our sites Discord channel. We used the medium image quality preset and used FRAPS to replay the final two minutes of the match that involved a ton of smoke, molotovs and a train moving across the map while the final three teams fought in one of the smaller circles.
Here we found the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X was found to be 21% faster than the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 on the replay. The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X never dipped below 115 FPS whereas the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 dropped down to 91 FPS. The Intel Core i9-9900K for comparison sake was averaging 155 FPS and dropped down to 136 FPS with regards to minimum frame rates.
Here the AMD Ryzen 3 processors deliver about 1.1 FPS per dollar spent whereas the Intel Core i9-9900K delivers about 0.3 FPS per dollar.
Grand Theft Auto V (GTAV) is a 2013 action-adventure game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. The open world design lets players freely roam San Andreas’ open countryside and the fictional city of Los Santos, based on Los Angeles. Just shy of 200,000 gamers still log into Steam and play this game title as of May 2020.
To benchmark this game title using the built-in benchmark we used high image quality settings with 8x MSAA and 16x AF enabled.
The results from the built-in benchmark for GTAV were a bit shocking as there wasn’t much of a difference between each of the processors with a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in the system. The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X was only about 4.4% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100, which is the closest that these two 65W TDP processors have been to on another. The Intel Core i9-9900K was 7% faster than the Ryzern 3 3300X and 11.5% faster than the Ryzen 3 3100.
Here we see the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 delivering the best frame rate for the price with 1.57 frames per dollar spent. The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X comes in at 1.35 and the Intel Core i9-9900K comes in at 0.35 frame per dollar.
