Ryzen 3 5300U vs Core i7-7700K comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-7700K is faster than the Ryzen 3 5300U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 3 5300U in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i7-7700K has a significantly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 3 5300U. Also, the Core i7-7700K has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 3 5300U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-7700K CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The info from our database shows that the Ryzen 3 5300U has more L2 cache than the Core i7-7700K. Despite this, the Core i7-7700K has significantly more L3 cache compared to the Ryzen 3 5300U.
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 5300U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
