Core i3-7020U vs Core i7 M 620 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i3-7020U is faster than the Core i7 M 620. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7 M 620 in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i7 M 620 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i3-7020U.

Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Core i3-7020U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
