Ryzen 5 5600H vs Ryzen 9 4900H benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 9 4900H performs better than the Ryzen 5 5600H. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 5600H has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Ryzen 9 4900H has slightly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Ryzen 5 5600H that has 6 cores. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 5 5600H. In terms of clock speed, the Ryzen 5 5600H and Ryzen 9 4900H are identical in this regard. Despite this, the Ryzen 9 4900H 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, the Ryzen 9 4900H has slightly more L2 cache when compared to the Ryzen 5 5600H. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 5600H has significantly more L3 cache compared to the Ryzen 9 4900H.

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