Comparison of technical characteristics between computer processors, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 on one hand, and the Intel Core i5-9300H on the other hand. The first has a total of 4 cores, 4 threads, a maximum frequency of 2.3 GHz. The second has 4 cores, 8 threads, its turbo frequency reaches 4.1 GHz. The following table also allows us to compare the lithography, the number of transistors (if indicated), the amount of cache memory, the maximum RAM memory capacity, the type of memory accepted, the launch date, the maximum number of PCIe lines , the values obtained in Geekbench 4 and Cinebench R15, as well as the price.
