Ryzen 5 5500U vs Ryzen 7 4700U comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 5500U is faster than the Ryzen 7 4700U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 4700U in all gaming tests too.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Ryzen 7 4700U has slightly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Ryzen 5 5500U that has 6 cores. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 5500U has more threads than the Ryzen 7 4700U. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 5500U has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 7 4700U. 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. The info from our database shows that the Ryzen 7 4700U has more L2 cache than the Ryzen 5 5500U. However, both these chips have the same amount of 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 5500U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
