AMD Ryzen 3 5300U benchmarked: Intel Core i3 has every reason to worry

AMD Ryzen 3 5300U benchmarked: Intel Core i3 has every reason to worry
AMD Ryzen 3 5300U benchmarked: Intel Core i3 has every reason to worry
We already know that the latest Ryzen 7 U-series CPUs can outperform the latest 11th gen Core i7 U-series CPUs in many instances, but the differences are skewed even further in AMD's favor when moving down to the Ryzen 3 vs. Core i3 budget category.

We recently had the chance to check out the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15ALC6 retailing for just around $500 USD. Unlike most other laptops in its price range powered by Intel Core i3 CPUs, this particular system is powered by the competing AMD Ryzen 3 5300U Zen 2 CPU. This also happens to be the first laptop to appear in our database with such a processor and so we were particularly interested in how it compares to the Core i3 series. The short answer is that the AMD CPU completely obliterates the Intel CPU at best while being just slightly behind at worst.

Raw multi-threaded performance favors the Ryzen 3 5300U by 70 to 90 percent when compared to the Tiger Lake-U Core i3-1115G4 which gives the AMD CPU a significant advantage in many multi-threaded heavy applications like Blender, 7-Zip, and x265 encoding. Core i3 CPUs continue to be limited to two cores and four threads whereas the Ryzen 3 5300U has double the cores and threads.

Single-thread performance favors the Core i3-1115G4 by 10 to 15 percent over the Ryzen 3 5300U. An Intel advantage is to be expected since the Core i3-1115G4 has both a higher upper TDP limit than the AMD part (28 W vs. 15 W) and fewer physical cores. Nonetheless, said advantage is relatively minor.

Integrated graphics performance is where things get a bit interesting. Whereas the Ryzen 7 would typically fall behind the Core i7 Iris Xe 96 EUs by roughly 30 percent, the Ryzen 3 would actually outperform the Core i3 Iris Xe 48 EUs in many real-world titles. GTA V, DOTA 2 Reborn, and Witcher 3 would consistently favor the AMD chip in all tested settings.

All these AMD advantages would mean little if such AMD-powered laptops are pricier and more power hungry than a Core i3 alternative. However, this is not the case as laptops running on either processor are under similar power envelopes and with similar price targets. If you're in the market for a budget laptop, then there's little reason to choose a Core i3 model over a Ryzen 3 one at least when other attributes are held equal.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
