Ryzen 5 3450U vs Ryzen 7 2700U comparison

In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 5 3450U beats the Ryzen 7 2700U in overall performance. Despite this, the Ryzen 7 2700U 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. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 7 2700U has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 3450U. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. When comparing cache sizes, these CPUs have an identical amount of L2 cache and L3 cache.

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 5 3450U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
