Ryzen 7 2700X vs Ryzen 7 4800U specs and performance
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 7 2700X performs better than the Ryzen 7 4800U. Despite this, the Ryzen 7 4800U 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. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 7 2700X has a significantly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 7 4800U. Also, the Ryzen 7 2700X has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Ryzen 7 4800U outputs less heat than Ryzen 7 2700X thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The data shows that both these CPUs have same sized L2 caches. The Ryzen 7 2700X also has significantly more L3 cache.
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 7 2700X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
