Ryzen 3 5100 Budget CPU Could Excel On The Retail Market

AMD Zen 3-powered processors are still some of the best CPUs around for gaming. Some unannounced chips have great potential, but unfortunately, they are only available to OEMs or on the black market, such as some of the Ryzen 5000G (Cezanne) SKUs that lack integrated graphics.

Three Ryzen processors belong to the Cezanne family and come with a disabled iGPU: the Ryzen 7 5700, the Ryzen 5 5500, and the Ryzen 3 5100. Out of the trio, the Ryzen 5 5500 is the only SKU available to the retail market. The Ryzen 7 5700 and Ryzen 3 5100 are OEM parts occasionally pop up on e-commerce platforms. AMD doesn’t even list the Ryzen 7 5700 or Ryzen 3 5100 on the company website. The processors’ existence and specifications are only known thanks to the motherboard vendor-provided CPU support list, such as this one from Gigabyte (via momomo_us).
