Ryzen 5 3600 vs Ryzen 5 4600H benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 4600H is faster than the Ryzen 5 3600. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 3600 in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 5 3600 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 5 4600H. The Ryzen 5 4600H outputs less heat than Ryzen 5 3600 thanks to a significantly lower TDP. 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 3600 also has significantly more L3 cache.

The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 3600 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
