Core i9-9880H vs Ryzen 5 5625U benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i9-9880H performs better than the Ryzen 5 5625U. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 5625U has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i9-9880H has slightly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Ryzen 5 5625U that has 6 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 5 5625U. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i9-9880H has a slightly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 5 5625U. Also, the Core i9-9880H has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Ryzen 5 5625U outputs less heat than Core i9-9880H thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The info from our database shows that the Ryzen 5 5625U has more L2 cache than the Core i9-9880H. However, both these chips have the same amount of L3 cache.

The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. Indeed, the Core i9-9880H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
