Ryzen 5 5600X vs Core i5-9400F benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 5600X is faster than the Core i5-9400F. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-9400F in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Ryzen 5 5600X has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 5 5600X has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-9400F. 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 cache sizes of these CPUs are different. Indeed, the Ryzen 5 5600X has significantly more L2 cache than the Core i5-9400F. The Ryzen 5 5600X also has significantly 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 5600X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
