Ryzen 3 1300X vs Xeon E5-1630 v3 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-1630 v3 is faster than the Ryzen 3 1300X. Despite this, the Ryzen 3 1300X has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Xeon E5-1630 v3 has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Xeon E5-1630 v3 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 3 1300X. Also, the Xeon E5-1630 v3 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 3 1300X CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-1630 v3 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

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.
