Today we have a classic showdown between the Red Team and the Blue Team. In this comparison, we have the AMD Ryzen 3 4300U versus the Intel Core i3-10110U. These two CPUs are both entry-level CPUs for mobile devices that specialize in low power consumption. We are going to see which CPU performs better.
In terms of raw power, both CPUs have pretty standard specifications. The only major difference between them is that the Intel has 2 cores and 4 threads whereas the Ryzen has 4 cores and 4 threads.
|AMD Ryzen 3 4300U||Intel Core i3-10110U|
|Cores / Threads||4 / 4||2 / 4|
|Base / Max frequency||2.70 – 3.70 GHz||2.10 – 4.10 GHz|
|Cache||4 MB Cache||4 MB Cache|
|TDP / up / down||15W / 25W / 10W||15W / 25W / 10W|
|Memory support||DDR4-3200MHz, LPDDR4-4266MHz||
DDR4-2666MHz, LPDDR3-2133MHz, LPDDR4-2933MHz
In our first benchmarks, the Ryzen 3 crushes the Core i3-10110U and gets much better results.
Results are from the Cinebench 15 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Fritz chess benchmark (the higher the score, the better)
Again, in our GPU benchmarks, the Intel Core i3-10110U does significantly worse than the Ryzen 3 4300U. On average, Ryzen 3 has two times the performance of the Core i3.
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)

|Intel Core i3-10110U||33 fps||20 fps||–|
|DOTA 2||HD 1080p, Low (Check settings)||HD 1080p, Normal (Check settings)||HD 1080p, High (Check settings)|
|Ryzen 3 4300U||98 fps (+66%)||62 fps (+114%)||32 fps|
|Intel Core i3-10110U||59 fps||29 fps||–|
All things considered, the Ryzen 3 4300U does a lot better than the Core i3-10110U. In both CPU and iGPU performance, the former is roughly two times faster than the latter, which is a huge difference, considering the similar price range of both processors. Hopefully, Intel will step away from the 14nm process, that they are using for quite a lot of time now because clearly, the Red company is harvesting on their 7nm success.
Both of these CPUs are in our Top Laptop CPU Ranking.
