Ryzen 7 5700G vs Core i7-10700K specs and performance

In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 5700G beats the Core i7-10700K in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-10700K in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. According to our data, the Ryzen 7 5700G and Core i7-10700K have the same clock speed. Despite this, the Core i7-10700K has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 5700G CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-10700K CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The info from our database shows that the Ryzen 7 5700G has more L2 cache than the Core i7-10700K. However, both these chips have the same amount of 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 5700G has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
