FX-4200 vs Core i3-4150 comparison
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the FX-4200 performs better than the Core i3-4150. Despite this, the Core i3-4150 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the FX-4200 has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the Core i3-4150 that has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. The Core i3-4150 outputs less heat than FX-4200 thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. For instance, the FX-4200 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
