Ryzen 3 2200U vs FX-4200 specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the FX-4200 is faster than the Ryzen 3 2200U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 3 2200U in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the FX-4200 has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the Ryzen 3 2200U that has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. A Ryzen 3 2200U CPU outputs less heat than a FX-4200 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. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 2200U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
