Intel Core i3-12100 quad-core Alder Lake CPU tested, faster than Ryzen 3 3300X
Meanwhile, AMD's budget tier CPUs be like
And no, the heavily gimped 5000G series doesn't count as their budget tier. It's quite the shame that we have to look to Intel of all companies to provide us with good budget CPUs.
Indeed, it's a shame how AMD has abandoned the budget segment when, not so long ago, it was the only segment where they were competitive.
And look at them now, they no longer have the best mainstream chips nor the most affordable ones. They need Zen 4 "soon", or they'll be in a very difficult position.
Intel ARC A380 Discrete Graphics Card To Feature 128 EUs Clocked at Up To 2.45 GHz & 6 GB GDDR6 Memory, Performance On Par With GTX 1650 SUPER
If GPU prices were normal, we would be laughing Intel out of the market. But because GPU prices are fucked, this will probably do well if priced right.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 rumored to feature 8GB RAM, might compete with Intel ARC A380 with 6GB
It's worth noting that the Intel card should perform better than that, it's just that their drivers aren't ready and the card can't perform at its best.
Also, it's taken both Nvidia and AMD more than one year to start leaking info regarding their low end parts (the 3050 in one side and the 6400/6500 for the other). More than a year! Those cards will launch closer to the launch of the next architecture than the launch of their own one.
