AMD Ryzen 5 3500

The Ryzen 5 3500 is a 6 core CPU from AMD. This chip has a very good overall score at 43% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is a very good processor for gaming, with a score of 68%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Ryzen 5 3500 scores 35% and 33% respectively. Indeed, this is a good rating for very heavy workloads.

The Ryzen 5 3500 has 6 cores and 6 threads. This chip has no simultaneous multithreading support, as it has the same number of cores as threads. This AMD CPU has a clock speed of 3.6 GHz.

As for memory, the Ryzen 5 3500 makes use of DDR4 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled.

In terms of cache, the Ryzen 5 3500 has 384 KiB of level 1 cache, 3 MiB of level 2 cache and 16 MiB of level 3 cache. This is a fast memory located close to the processor, which stores copies of frequently used data from main memory.

This CPU has fast connectivity with support for PCI-Express Gen 4. The faster the PCIe link, the better. This allows for better performance with GPUs and NVME SSDs.

Power and thermals for the AMD Ryzen 5 3500 CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 65 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
