Ryzen 7 5700U vs Core i5-10600K benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-10600K performs better than the Ryzen 7 5700U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 5700U in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Ryzen 7 5700U has slightly more cores than the Core i5-10600K. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 5700U has 8 cores compared to 6 cores found in the Core i5-10600K. It also has more threads than the Core i5-10600K. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i5-10600K has a significantly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 7 5700U. Also, the Core i5-10600K has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 5700U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-10600K CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. In terms of cache, the Ryzen 7 5700U has significantly more L2 cache when compared to the Core i5-10600K. Despite this, the Core i5-10600K has significantly more L3 cache compared to the Ryzen 7 5700U.

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 5700U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
