Ryzen 3 1200 vs Ryzen 5 1400 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 1400 is faster than the Ryzen 3 1200. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 3 1200 in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Ryzen 5 1400 has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 5 1400 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 3 1200. In addition, both chips have the same turbo speed. 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. In terms of cache, both these CPUs have the same amount of L2 cache and L3 cache.

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 Ryzen 3 1200 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
