Ryzen 3 3300X vs Xeon E5-2699 v4 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-2699 v4 is faster than the Ryzen 3 3300X. Despite this, the Ryzen 3 3300X has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2699 v4 has significantly more cores with 22 cores compared to the Ryzen 3 3300X that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 3 3300X. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 3300X has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E5-2699 v4. Also, the Ryzen 3 3300X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 3 3300X CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2699 v4 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 3300X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
