AMD Ryzen 3 3300X & 3100

The 3300X serves as Ryzen 3’s new flagship part with four cores, eight threads, a 3.8 GHz base and 4.3 GHz boost, plus unified core design for a mere $120. AMD says this chip tackles Intel’s $157 six-core/thread Core i5-9400F and provides 20% more performance, which would be quite the feat. 

The $99 Ryzen 3 3100 is the next step down the price ladder with four cores and eight threads and a 3.8 / 3.9 GHz base/boost frequency, but it’s a steep step down on performance due to a different distribution of cores across the chiplet.
