Ryzen 5 5600X vs Core i5-11400 benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 5600X is faster than the Core i5-11400. Despite this, the Core i5-11400 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 5 5600X has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-11400. Also, the Ryzen 5 5600X 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. The data shows that both these CPUs have same sized L2 caches. The Ryzen 5 5600X also has significantly more L3 cache.
Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 5600X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
