AMD has prepared Ryzen 3 7300X as well as Ryzen 7 7800X, a 10-core/20-thread processor, in response to Intel’s advantage in multi-threaded computing.

AMD has prepared Ryzen 3 7300X as well as Ryzen 7 7800X, a 10-core/20-thread processor, in response to Intel’s advantage in multi-threaded computing.

One important benefit of Intel’s Hybrid architecture is the performance of multi-threaded applications. Although the E-cores are small, they perform admirably and, when used in sufficient numbers, have a significant impact on multi-threaded performance. AMD is being forced to reevaluate CPU core counts across its product line as a result...
