Ryzen 7 5800 vs Ryzen 7 5800X specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 7 5800 is faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 5800X 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. With our hardware info, we find that the Ryzen 7 5800X has a slightly higher clock speed than the Ryzen 7 5800. Also, the Ryzen 7 5800X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 5800 CPU outputs less heat than a Ryzen 7 5800X CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. When comparing cache sizes, these CPUs have an identical amount of L2 cache and L3 cache.

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 5800 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
