Ryzen 7 3700X vs Ryzen 7 5800X comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 7 5800X is faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 3700X 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 5800X has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 7 3700X. Also, the Ryzen 7 5800X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 3700X CPU outputs less heat than a Ryzen 7 5800X CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. 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 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 3700X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
