Ryzen 5 3600X vs EPYC 7502P benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the EPYC 7502P performs better than the Ryzen 5 3600X. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 3600X has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the EPYC 7502P has significantly more cores with 32 cores compared to the Ryzen 5 3600X that has 6 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 5 3600X. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 5 3600X has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the EPYC 7502P. Also, the Ryzen 5 3600X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 5 3600X CPU outputs less heat than a EPYC 7502P CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The cache sizes of these CPUs are different. Indeed, the EPYC 7502P has significantly more L2 cache than the Ryzen 5 3600X. The EPYC 7502P 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 3600X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
