[Comaprison] Intel Core i3-1115G4 vs AMD Ryzen 3 4300U – The AMD processor is much better in both CPU and GPU benchmarks

With AMD offering the best that is available right now in terms of CPUs, it is great to see that Intel hasn’t given up and are still fighting back and releasing new and interesting CPUs. One of them is the newest addition to the Tiger-Lake family, the Intel Core i3-1115G4, which offers great performance, considering the price that you’re paying.

Currently, we have comparisons between this new i3 and some other Tiger Lake CPUs, but to truly comprehend the performance of this chip we would want to compare it against its main rival from Team Red, in the face of the AMD Ryzen 3 4300U to see which low-end chip is better, both when CPU and GPU scores are considered.

Here is our Top Laptop CPU Ranking, where you can check out how these CPUs stack up against other processors.

CPU benchmark

As always, we start with the CPU results. In the 3D Rendering test with Cinebench 15, the Ryzen 3 4300U was 25% faster than the Intel processor. Continuing with the Photoshop benchmark, here the AMD CPU finished faster again, this time with a lead of two seconds.

Results are from the Cinebench 20 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

Results are from our Photoshop benchmark test (the lower the score, the better)


GPU benchmark

Moving over to the GPU benchmarks, here the Radeon RX Vega 5 was better across all of our benchmarks, with a 15% higher score in 3DMark Fire Strike, 22% in Unigine Heaven 4.0, and 12% in Unigine Superposition. The gaming tests were dominated by the AMD iGPU as well, with an average performance increase of 32% in CS:GO and 24% in DOTA 2.

Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Superposition benchmark (higher the score, the better)
