Core i7-12700H vs Ryzen 7 6800H comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-12700H performs better than the Ryzen 7 6800H. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 6800H in all gaming tests too.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-12700H has significantly more cores with 14 cores compared to the Ryzen 7 6800H that has 8 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 7 6800H. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 7 6800H has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-12700H. Furthermore, both these CPUs have identical turbo speeds. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. Indeed, the Core i7-12700H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
