Ryzen 5 3500X vs Ryzen 5 5500 benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 5500 is faster than the Ryzen 5 3500X. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 3500X in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Ryzen 5 5500 has more threads. According to our data, the Ryzen 5 3500X 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 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.
