Intel Claims that the Core i3-8145U is Better than the AMD Ryzen 7 3700U (No Really, We’re not Kidding)

Another day, another controversial claim from Intel. And this time, it’s bolder than ever. According to Intel, the Core i3-8145U (a dual-core chip) is up to 65% better than the newly launched Ryzen 7 3700U (a quad-core processor). Don’t believe me? See for yourself:

This slide from Intel claims that the Core i3-8145U delivers “longer productivity on the go”, offering up to 65% better overall performance. Where they got that figure is a mystery for the ages. Even in their own breakdown, the chip is supposedly 10-20% faster in tasks ranging from media editing to web-browsing.

These are one of those slides that make you go, “Can you really do that”. And I’m not talking about the CPU performance here, but the misleading marketing from big blue. I mean, just have a look at this:

These are a few benchmarks I took from Notebookcheck’s Database and guess what? The Ryzen 5 3700U manages to beat the Core i5-8250U. The lower-end Core i3-8145U which Intel claims beats this chip can’t even keep up with the older Ryzen 5 2500U, let alone the 3700U.

It’s a shame Intel has resorted to such tactics despite the fact that their products are quite competitive. The Ryzen 7 3700U competes with the Core i5-8265U and it yes, it costs more but performs more or less the same.

If a member of Intel’s PR team is reading this, we’d like a statement on this. As for where I got these slides. I had to do a bit of digging and they were provided to a Thai IT retailer and outlet to persuade clueless consumers into buying Intel products. Here’s the link to the store. Keep in mind, the images might have been taken down by the time you see this.

  1. Wow, so FPS in Bioshock Infinite, they are comparing laptops with dedicated graphics cards to AMD integrated graphics??????????? Wow, they really have NO shame whatsoever…

  2. A pineAPPLE is at least 500% larger, compared to an APPLE 😀

    Intel ex-CEO said, Intel processors function as intended, no bug, so using the design shortcut of partial addresses, causing so many more security holes than AMD’s, is intended, so what!
