Ryzen 7 5700G vs Core i9-11900K comparison
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i9-11900K performs better than the Ryzen 7 5700G. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 5700G 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 5700G has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i9-11900K. Despite this, the Core i9-11900K has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 5700G CPU outputs less heat than a Core i9-11900K 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 5700G has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
