Which to select

It is time to pick the winner. What is the difference between Intel Core i5-3340S vs AMD Ryzen 9 PRO 3900? What CPU is more powerful? It is quite easy to determine – look at comparison table. The processor with more cores/ threads and also with higher frequency is the absolute winner!

CPU Cores and Base Frequency

Who will win between Intel Core i5-3340S vs  AMD Ryzen 9 PRO 3900. The general performance of a CPU can easily be determined based on the number of its cores and the thread count, as well as the base frequency and Turbo frequency. The more GHz and cores a CPU has, the better. Please note that high technical specs require using a powerful cooling system.
