FX-8370 vs Core i7-11850H benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Core i7-11850H beats the FX-8370 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the FX-8370 in all gaming tests too.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-11850H has significantly more cores with 8 cores compared to the FX-8370 that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the FX-8370. Our comparison shows that the FX-8370 has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-11850H. Despite this, the Core i7-11850H has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Core i7-11850H outputs less heat than FX-8370 thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

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 FX-8370 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
