Ryzen 3 2200GE vs Ryzen 5 3500U specs and performance
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 3 2200GE performs better than the Ryzen 5 3500U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 3500U in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the Ryzen 5 3500U has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 2200GE has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 3500U. The Ryzen 5 3500U outputs less heat than Ryzen 3 2200GE thanks to a significantly lower TDP. 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.
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 2200GE has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
