Ryzen 3 2200G vs Core i7-4960HQ specs and performance

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-4960HQ performs better than the Ryzen 3 2200G. Despite this, the Ryzen 3 2200G has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Core i7-4960HQ has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 2200G has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-4960HQ. Despite this, the Core i7-4960HQ has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Core i7-4960HQ 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.

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 2200G has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
