Ryzen 7 5700U vs Core i5-11400 comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i5-11400 is faster than the Ryzen 7 5700U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 5700U in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Ryzen 7 5700U has slightly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Core i5-11400 that has 6 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i5-11400. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i5-11400 has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 7 5700U. Also, the Core i5-11400 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 5700U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-11400 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 slightly more L2 cache when compared to the Core i5-11400. Despite this, the Core i5-11400 has significantly more L3 cache compared to the Ryzen 7 5700U.
The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 5700U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
