Description of the processor

As one of the last processors, the AMD Ryzen 3 4100 was presented by AMD in the 2nd quarter of 2022. It is based on the older Zen 2 architecture, which, for example, has a smaller Level 3 cache than the Zen 3 processors. The AMD Ryzen 3 4100 has 4 CPU cores of the same size which, thanks to the support of AMDs SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) technology, can process 8 threads (two per CPU core) at the same time.

The base clock frequency of the AMD Ryzen 3 4100 is 3.8 GHz. The processor also has a turbo mode in which the clock frequency can be increased slightly to 4.0 GHz.

Like all Zen 2 processors, the small AMD Ryzen 3 4100 also supports up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, which results in a bandwidth of 51.2 GB/s when using two memory channels. External devices such as a graphics card can be connected via PCIe 3.0, but only with 8 lines. Another four PCIe 3.0 lines are available for a fast M.2 SSD.

The TDP of the AMD Ryzen 3 4100 is 65 watts, but the processor can also be operated in an energy-saving manner with lower TDPs down to 45 watts. The processor is suitable, for example, for inexpensive gaming PCs or small home servers such as in a NAS.

The level 3 cache is only 4 MB, the architecture of the AMD Ryzen 3 4100 comes from the Renoir APUs and not from the pure Zen 2 desktop (Matisse) CPUs. However, the internal graphics unit, which all Renoir APUs have, is deactivated in the AMD Ryzen 3 4100, so that it requires a dedicated graphics card to operate.

The AMD Ryzen 3 4100 fits into socket AM4 and is one of the last processors that AMD introduced for this socket in 2022. The processor is manufactured at TSMC in a 7 nm process and is therefore energy-efficient.
