Ryzen 5 5600G vs Ryzen 5 5500 comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 5600G is faster than the Ryzen 5 5500. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 5500 in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 5 5600G has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 5500. 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. In terms of cache, both these CPUs have the same amount of L2 cache and 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.
