|Geekbench 5 Single-Core/Multi-Core||1232/2559||973/1903||998/2045||704/1458|
Obviously, we can infer that the 11th gen 1115G4 is the best processor of the lot.
The 11th gen CPU works on 10 nm SuperFin technology that helps accommodate more components in the laptop. Alternatively, it helps in reducing the form factor leading to slimmer models. At the same time, the Ci3 10110U and AMD Ryzen processors have 14 Nm semi-conductor sizes, the Ci3 1005G4 works on 10 Nm semi-conductors.
All the four CPUs listed above have dual-core processors that support hyperthreading.
The 11th gen Ci3 1115G4 displays a maximum turbo clock speed of 4.10 GHz, whereas the nearest competitor is the Ci3 10110 with a matching frequency. Meanwhile, the Ci3 1005G1 has a base clock speed of 1.20 GHz for low-intensity tasks.
The 11th gen Ci3 1115G4 offers a 6 MB L3 cache, whereas the other CPUs offer 4 MB.
The TDP configurable range is similar, but the Ci3 10110U is slightly better as it consumes the least power than the other CPUs in the list.
Memory Size and Support
The AMD Ryzen 3 3250U is the least equipped in this category as the CPU supports a maximum of 32 GB, whereas the other three processors support up to 64 GB. The Ci3 1115G4 and Ci3 1005G1 support DDR4 3200 MHz, a decent speed for a laptop in the Rs 40K budget.
The Intel Core i3 1115G4 comes equipped with 11th gen Intel Iris Xe graphics G4, the best of the lot. The AMD Ryzen 3 3250U features AMD Radeon Vega 3 graphics. Performance-wise, it is similar to the Intel UHD 620 graphics available in the 10th gen CPUs.

Direct X Support
The 11th gen CPU supports the latest Direct X 12.1, whereas the other CPUs support the earlier version of Direct X 12.0.
The 11th gen Ci3 1115G4 supports the latest version, Thunderbolt 4, with extreme data transfer speeds and power capabilities. Unfortunately, the other processors do not support Thunderbolt technology.
Compared to the other CPUs in this list, the Ci3 1115G4 supports the latest version, PCIe 4.0.
The benchmark scores clearly show the Ci3 1115G4 as the best of the four CPUs compared above. There is a close tie between the other 10th gen CPUs, Ci3 10110U and Ci3 1005G1. The AMD Ryzen CPU fares comparatively poorly in this respect.
The 11th gen Ci3 1115G4 is a clear winner and qualifies as the best processor for laptops under Rs 40,000. The 10th gen Ci3 1005G1 is the second-best when it comes to performance. However, the Ci3 10110U is also a good CPU because it saves power.
