Ryzen 5 1500X vs Xeon Silver 4108 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 1500X is faster than the Xeon Silver 4108. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon Silver 4108 in all gaming tests too.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon Silver 4108 has significantly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Ryzen 5 1500X that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 5 1500X. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 1500X has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon Silver 4108. Also, the Ryzen 5 1500X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 5 1500X CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon Silver 4108 CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

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 5 1500X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
