Ryzen 5 3600 vs Ryzen 7 4800H specs and performance

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 7 4800H 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.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Ryzen 7 4800H has slightly more cores than the Ryzen 5 3600. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 4800H has 8 cores compared to 6 cores found in the Ryzen 5 3600. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 5 3600. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 5 3600 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 7 4800H. In addition, both chips have the same turbo speed. The Ryzen 7 4800H 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 info from our database shows that the Ryzen 7 4800H has more L2 cache than the Ryzen 5 3600. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 3600 has significantly more L3 cache compared to the Ryzen 7 4800H.

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.
