Ryzen 7 2800H vs Core i7-8809G comparison
In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 2800H beats the Core i7-8809G in overall performance. Despite this, the Core i7-8809G has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 7 2800H has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i7-8809G. Despite this, the Core i7-8809G has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 2800H CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-8809G CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. In terms of cache, the Ryzen 7 2800H has significantly more L2 cache when compared to the Core i7-8809G. Despite this, the Core i7-8809G has significantly more L3 cache compared to the Ryzen 7 2800H.
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 2800H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
