AMD Ryzen 3 3200U Lower-Mid-Range Laptop CPU

The AMD Ryzen 3 3200U belongs to the lower mid range processors for notebooks. It has two computing cores as opposed to four of the truly mid-tier chips such as the Ryzen 5 3500U from the same family. The Ryzen 3 3200U has a maximal clock speed of 3.5 GHz, which is only a small boost over the previous-gen Ryzen 3 2200U.

The benchmarks confirm the lower-mid-tier status of the Ryzen 3 3200U and its negligible over the Ryzen 3 2200U. The gap between the 3 3200U and the quad-core 5 3500U is much bigger, as expected. The Ryzen 3 also can’t quite keep up with its current direct competitor by Intel, the Core i3-8145U.

However, in the real world-use the Ryzen 3 3200U is a very capable processor for the usual daily computing chores, such as web surf, writing essays, spreadsheet calculations, media playback, and similar. For most users, the Ryzen 3 is sufficient performance-wise. The more powerful quad-core chips like the Ryzen 5 and Intel Core i5 are recommended if you regularly do heavier computing duties like movie making or professional photo editing, although these chips aren’t full-blown workstation-class CPUs neither.

The Ryzen 3 3200U has only the basic Radeon Vega 3 integrated graphics. Gaming is another reason why one would like to get a laptop with the Ryzen 5 series instead of Ryzen 3, because the former has noticeably better Vega 8 integrated graphics. Nevertheless, the Ryzen 3 3200U / Vega 3 is capable of running many of the popular games, mostly with lowered graphics and resolution settings, as shown in this YouTube gameplay video playlist:

 

Note: Performance and benchmark scores of the AMD Ryzen 3 3200U may vary depending on the notebook's other components, settings, cooling, and other factors. However, benchmark results are good indicators of its performance in comparison to other chips.

    I have this processor on my laptop but I’m not satisfied about the performance. I do have like 800gb available space on my disc, less than 10 light apps and yet it lags. I followed every instructions in youtube but nothing happens. I don’t know if it is a hardware issue or software. Kinda frustrated.

      Hi, does your laptop have a hard drive or solid state drive and what is your RAM size? The Ryzen 3 3200U should be able to handle stuff like web browsing, work in MS Office, email etc without major lags. But, if your laptop uses a hard drive instead of SSD, that could be the cause of laggy user experience, especially when booting up Windows and starting apps. Also, if your RAM size is small, for instance 4GB, you will encounter lags when you multi-task a lot and exceed 4GB, like having many programs or browser tabs running at the same time.
