Ryzen 3 3200U vs Core i3-7020U comparison

In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 3 3200U beats the Core i3-7020U in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i3-7020U in all gaming tests too.

When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 3 3200U has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i3-7020U. 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.

Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 3200U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
