Ryzen 3 1300X vs Ryzen 3 3250U specs and performance

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 3 1300X performs better than the Ryzen 3 3250U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 3 3250U in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Ryzen 3 1300X has significantly more cores than the Ryzen 3 3250U. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 1300X has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the Ryzen 3 3250U. But they both have the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 1300X has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 3 3250U. Also, the Ryzen 3 1300X has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Ryzen 3 3250U outputs less heat than Ryzen 3 1300X thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The cache sizes of these CPUs are different. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 1300X has significantly more L2 cache than the Ryzen 3 3250U. The Ryzen 3 1300X also has significantly more L3 cache.

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. For instance, the Ryzen 3 1300X has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
