Ryzen 3 4300GE vs Core i7-7920HQ comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-7920HQ performs better than the Ryzen 3 4300GE. Despite this, the Ryzen 3 4300GE has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 3 4300GE has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-7920HQ. A Ryzen 3 4300GE CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-7920HQ CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. 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 4300GE has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
