Ryzen 3 3100 vs Ryzen 5 5500 comparison
In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 5 5500 beats the Ryzen 3 3100 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 3 3100 in all gaming tests too.
In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Ryzen 5 5500 has significantly more cores than the Ryzen 3 3100. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 5500 has 6 cores compared to 4 cores found in the Ryzen 3 3100. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 3 3100. According to our data, the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 5 5500 have the same clock speed. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 5500 has a slightly higher turbo speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The cache sizes of these CPUs are different. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 5500 has significantly more L2 cache than the Ryzen 3 3100. 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 Ryzen 3 3100 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
