Ryzen 7 3700U vs Core i7-6920HQ specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 7 3700U is faster than the Core i7-6920HQ. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-6920HQ 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 i7-6920HQ has a slightly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 7 3700U. A Ryzen 7 3700U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-6920HQ CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

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 7 3700U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
