Ryzen 5 3500 vs Xeon W-10855M benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon W-10855M is faster than the Ryzen 5 3500. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 3500 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Xeon W-10855M has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 3500 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon W-10855M. The Xeon W-10855M outputs less heat than Ryzen 5 3500 thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. For instance, the Ryzen 5 3500 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
