FX-8300 vs Core i5-3450 benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the FX-8300 is faster than the Core i5-3450. Despite this, the Core i5-3450 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the FX-8300 has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the FX-8300 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-3450.
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 FX-8300 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
