AMD Ryzen 3 3200G vs AMD FX-8350 Hackintosh Benchmark

I have two different Hackintosh systems that work very well. One system uses an old AMD FX-8350 processor and the newer one is using AMD Ryzen 3 3200G series. In this article, I will show you some synthetic benchmarks using some popular benchmarking software such as Geekbench, Cinebench as well as Unigine Heaven. I know, it’s not the ultimate parameter to define a system’s overall performance in real life.

System Specifications

AMD Ryzen Hackintosh System

  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 3200G (4 Cores)
  • Motherboard: MSI B450 M2 Pro 2 Max
  • Graphic Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 8 GB
  • RAM: DDR4 16 GB
  • macOS Catalina 10.15.5

AMD FX Hackintosh System

  • Processor: AMD FX-8350 (8 Cores)
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970a-D3P
  • Graphic Card: MSI Radeon RX 570 8 GB
  • RAM: DDR3 16 GB
  • macOS Catalina 10.15.5

So here are the benchmark results on each benchmark software

Geekbench 5 CPU Benchmark

As you can see, on the single core, my AMD Ryzen system beats the AMD FX with 50% higher score. While in multi cores, the Ryzen got 13% faster than the FX-8350.

Geekbench 5 GPU Benchmark

On the GPU benchmark, the Radeon RX 580 shows better results on both Metal and OpenCL benchmark over the RX 570.

Cinebench R20 Benchmark

Again, the AMD Ryzen still shows better result over the AMD FX on Cinebench R20 benchmark.

Unigine Heaven Benchmark

Unigine Benchmark is a 3D performance benchmark. In this test, I use the following settings

  • Render: OpenGL
  • Mode: 1600×900 full screen
  • Preset: Custom
  • Quality: Ultra
  • Tessellation: Disabled

Both systems showing some nice results. Again, the AMD Ryzen with RX 580 gives better overall results in term of average FPS as well as the max FPS. I think with this result, I can play Steam games without any issues.

Bottom Line

Hackintosh is the only way to do if you want to use a macOS operating system but you do not own the Mac computer. Lately, Hackintosh becomes popular and easier to do, even for a non-Mac user like me. These synthetic benchmarks are not 100 percent reliable. In real life test, both AMD FX-8350 and AMD Ryzen system of mine works very well. I can edit my videos on Adobe Premiere Pro, retouch photos on Photoshop and play DOTA 2 games on both systems without any issues.


  1. Hi Bro I have Succesfully Installed Big Sur by Restoring Big Sur DMG to my Hardrive.
    I using Opencore 0.5.9 to Boot Catalina . But the same OpenCore does not boots BigSur. Please Update if Possible. Thanks Again!

  2. Hello AMD FX Fans,
    I’m from Germany and also like Linux and MacHack.
    I followed your Installinstructions with Success.
    For Catalina 10.15.6 I use OC 0.60.
    I updatet to 0.60, because it is needed for BigSur, if the
    CPU Patches will come out.
    There are Patches, but not ofical, jsl2000 from insanelymac
    has them and can run BigSur Beta 3.

    Greetings from Germany, maclinux
