Ryzen 3 2300U vs Ryzen 5 2500U specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 3 2300U is faster than the Ryzen 5 2500U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 2500U in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Ryzen 5 2500U has more threads. According to our data, the Ryzen 3 2300U and Ryzen 5 2500U have the same clock speed. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 2500U has a slightly higher turbo speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. When comparing cache sizes, these CPUs have an identical amount of L2 cache and L3 cache.
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 2300U has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
