Ryzen 5 5600H vs Core i5-11600 comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-11600 performs better than the Ryzen 5 5600H. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 5 5600H in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 5600H has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-11600. Despite this, the Core i5-11600 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 5 5600H CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-11600 CPU because of its 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. The Ryzen 5 5600H also has slightly more L3 cache.

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