Ryzen 5 5600G vs Xeon E-2136 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 5600G is faster than the Xeon E-2136. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E-2136 in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 5600G has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E-2136. Despite this, the Xeon E-2136 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 5 5600G CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E-2136 CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

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 5600G has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
