Ryzen 7 3700X vs Ryzen 9 5900HS benchmarks
In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 9 5900HS beats the Ryzen 7 3700X in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 3700X in all gaming tests too.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 3700X has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 9 5900HS. The Ryzen 9 5900HS outputs less heat than Ryzen 7 3700X thanks to a 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. The Ryzen 7 3700X also has significantly more L3 cache.
Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 3700X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
