Ryzen 5 3500X vs Ryzen 5 4500 benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 5 4500 performs better than the Ryzen 5 3500X. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 3500X in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the Ryzen 5 4500 has more threads. Both the Ryzen 5 3500X and Ryzen 5 4500 have the same clock speed. Furthermore, both these CPUs have identical turbo speeds. 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 data shows that both these CPUs have same sized L2 caches. The Ryzen 5 3500X also has significantly more L3 cache.
Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. For instance, the Ryzen 5 3500X has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
