Ryzen 7 5700U vs Core i5-11300H specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 7 5700U is faster than the Core i5-11300H. Despite this, the Core i5-11300H has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Ryzen 7 5700U has significantly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Core i5-11300H that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i5-11300H. A Ryzen 7 5700U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-11300H CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
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 5700U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
