Ryzen 3 3250U vs Core i5-4310M benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 3 3250U performs better than the Core i5-4310M. Despite this, the Core i5-4310M has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
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 Core i5-4310M has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 3 3250U. Despite this, the Ryzen 3 3250U has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 3 3250U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-4310M 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 3250U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
