Price: prices can change over time. For technical reasons, they are not updated in real time. This is only an average of the results on the first page of each product, whether new or used. Shipping costs have not been integrated. To know the final price of the product, please go to the form of the shop. If no price is indicated, it means that we did not find any offers during the last update.

Ratios: we first consider the average for the new price if available, the average for the used price otherwise. Performance / global cost ratio: This is the ratio of performance on Geekbench 4, divided by the cost of the product + the cost of electricity over 5 years for a duration of use of 13 hours per day.

Performances :

Performance comparison between this processor and those of equivalent power, for this we consider the results generated on benchmark softwares such as Geekbench 4.

Performance comparison on the Cinebench R15 benchmark platform for IT devices:

Cinebench R15 - Multi-thread & single thread score
AMD Ryzen 3 3200U 130
AMD Athlon 300U 120
AMD Ryzen 3 2200U 120
Intel Core i3-8130U 140

Intel Core i5-8200Y 129
Intel Core i3-7020U 90
Intel Core m3-8100Y 107

Cinebench R15 evaluates the performance of CPU calculations by restoring a photorealistic 3D scene. The scene has 2,000 objects, 300,000 polygons, uses sharp and fuzzy reflections, bright areas, shadows, procedural shaders, antialiasing, and so on. The faster the rendering of the scene is created, the more powerful the PC is, with a high number of points.

Performance comparison on the Cinebench R20 benchmark platform for IT devices:

Cinebench R20 - Multi-thread & single thread score
Intel Core i9-9980HK 470
Intel Core i9-8950HK 440
Intel Core i5-5250U 250

Cinebench R20 is a multi-platform test software which allows to evaluate the hardware capacities of a device such as a computer, a tablet, a server. This version of Cinebench takes into account recent developments in processors with multiple cores and the latest improvements in rendering techniques. The evaluation is ultimately even more relevant.

Performance comparison on the Passmark benchmark platform for IT devices:

PassMark - CPU Mark
