Core i3-8350K vs Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X is faster than the Core i3-8350K. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i3-8350K in all gaming tests too.

With info from our database, we find that the Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X has significantly more cores with 8 cores whereas the Core i3-8350K has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i3-8350K. Our comparison shows that the Core i3-8350K has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X. A Core i3-8350K CPU outputs less heat than a Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The cache sizes of these CPUs are different. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X has significantly more L2 cache than the Core i3-8350K. The Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X also has significantly more L3 cache.

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. For instance, the Core i3-8350K has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
