Ryzen 5 5600X vs Core i7-6700K specs and performance
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Ryzen 5 5600X performs better than the Core i7-6700K. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-6700K in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Ryzen 5 5600X has significantly more cores with 6 cores compared to the Core i7-6700K that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i7-6700K. Our comparison shows that the Core i7-6700K has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 5 5600X. Despite this, the Ryzen 5 5600X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 5 5600X CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-6700K CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. 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 i7-6700K. 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.
