Ryzen 5 4600G vs Core i7-10700 comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-10700 performs better than the Ryzen 5 4600G. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 4600G in all gaming tests too.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-10700 has slightly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Ryzen 5 4600G that has 6 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 5 4600G. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 4600G has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-10700. Despite this, the Core i7-10700 has a slightly higher turbo speed. 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. In terms of cache, the Ryzen 5 4600G has significantly more L2 cache when compared to the Core i7-10700. Despite this, the Core i7-10700 has significantly more L3 cache compared to the Ryzen 5 4600G.

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 4600G has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
