Ryzen 3 3200G vs Ryzen 5 1500X comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 5 1500X performs better than the Ryzen 3 3200G. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 3 3200G in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the Ryzen 5 1500X has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 3 3200G has a slightly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 5 1500X. 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. The data shows that both these CPUs have same sized L2 caches. The Ryzen 5 1500X also has significantly more 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 3200G has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
