Ryzen 5 5600X vs Xeon E3-1270 v3 comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 5 5600X is faster than the Xeon E3-1270 v3. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E3-1270 v3 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 Xeon E3-1270 v3 that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Xeon E3-1270 v3. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 5 5600X has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E3-1270 v3. Also, the Ryzen 5 5600X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 5 5600X CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E3-1270 v3 CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
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.
