Ryzen 3 2200G vs Core i7-4860HQ comparison
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-4860HQ performs better than the Ryzen 3 2200G. Despite this, the Ryzen 3 2200G has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores but the Core i7-4860HQ has more threads. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 3 2200G has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-4860HQ. Also, the Ryzen 3 2200G has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Core i7-4860HQ outputs less heat than Ryzen 3 2200G thanks to a slightly 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. For instance, the Ryzen 3 2200G has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
