Ryzen 3 4300U vs Xeon E3-1231 v3 comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 3 4300U performs better than the Xeon E3-1231 v3. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E3-1231 v3 in all gaming tests too.

When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores but the Xeon E3-1231 v3 has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon E3-1231 v3 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 3 4300U. Also, the Xeon E3-1231 v3 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 3 4300U CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E3-1231 v3 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.
