Ryzen 3 4300U vs Core i7-4960HQ comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 3 4300U is faster than the Core i7-4960HQ. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-4960HQ in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the Core i7-4960HQ has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 3 4300U has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i7-4960HQ. Despite this, the Core i7-4960HQ has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 3 4300U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-4960HQ 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. For instance, the Ryzen 3 4300U has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
