Ryzen 5 5600G vs Core i5-10400F benchmarks
In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 5 5600G beats the Core i5-10400F in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-10400F in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 5 5600G has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-10400F. Also, the Ryzen 5 5600G 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. The cache sizes of these CPUs are different. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 5600G has significantly more L2 cache than the Core i5-10400F. The Ryzen 5 5600G also has slightly more 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 5600G has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
