Ryzen 5 5500 vs Ryzen 5 4500 specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 5500 is faster than the Ryzen 5 4500. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 4500 in all gaming tests too.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. Both the Ryzen 5 5500 and Ryzen 5 4500 have the same clock speed. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 5500 has a slightly higher turbo speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). 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 5500 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 5500 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
