Ryzen 5 5600G vs Ryzen 5 5600U comparison

In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 5 5600G beats the Ryzen 5 5600U in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 5600U 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. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 5 5600G has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 5600U. Also, the Ryzen 5 5600G has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Ryzen 5 5600U outputs less heat than Ryzen 5 5600G thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. When comparing cache sizes, these CPUs have an identical 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.
