Ryzen 5 3550H vs Xeon E5-2670 v3 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-2670 v3 is faster than the Ryzen 5 3550H. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 3550H has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2670 v3 has significantly more cores with 12 cores compared to the Ryzen 5 3550H that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 5 3550H. Our comparison shows that the Xeon E5-2670 v3 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 3550H. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 3550H has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 5 3550H CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2670 v3 CPU because of its 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. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 3550H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
