AMD Ryzen 5 3550H

The Ryzen 5 3550H is a 4 core CPU from AMD released in 2019. This chip has an average overall score at 30% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is a very good processor for gaming, with a score of 46%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Ryzen 5 3550H scores 25% and 24% respectively. Indeed, this is an average rating for very heavy workloads.

The Ryzen 5 3550H has 4 cores and 8 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors. This AMD CPU has a clock speed of 2.1 GHz and a turbo speed of 3.7 GHz : a higher clock speed that can be reached when thermals and power delivery allow. This CPU has a locked multiplier, so you are not able to overclock it beyond this frequency.

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 3550H has 384 KiB of level 1 cache, 2 MiB of level 2 cache and 4 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 3. 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 3550H CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 35 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.
