Ryzen 7 2700X vs Ryzen 9 5900HX specs and performance

In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 9 5900HX beats the Ryzen 7 2700X in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 2700X in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 2700X has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 9 5900HX. Despite this, the Ryzen 9 5900HX has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Ryzen 9 5900HX outputs less heat than Ryzen 7 2700X thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. When comparing cache sizes, these CPUs have an identical amount of L2 cache and L3 cache.

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 7 2700X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
