Ryzen 5 3600 vs Ryzen 5 5600H benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 5 5600H performs better 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. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 3600 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 5600H. Furthermore, both these CPUs have identical turbo speeds. The Ryzen 5 5600H 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. In terms of cache, both these CPUs have the same amount of L2 cache. The Ryzen 5 3600 also has significantly more L3 cache.

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 3600 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
