Ryzen 5 4500U vs Ryzen 7 1800X benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 1800X beats the Ryzen 5 4500U in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 4500U in all gaming tests too.

With info from our database, we find that the Ryzen 7 1800X has slightly more cores with 8 cores whereas the Ryzen 5 4500U has 6 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 5 4500U. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 1800X has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 4500U. A Ryzen 5 4500U CPU outputs less heat than a Ryzen 7 1800X 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 Ryzen 7 1800X has slightly more L2 cache than the Ryzen 5 4500U. The Ryzen 7 1800X 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. For instance, the Ryzen 5 4500U has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
