Ryzen 7 5800H vs Ryzen 7 5800X comparison
In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 5800X beats the Ryzen 7 5800H in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen 7 5800H 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 5800X has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 7 5800H. Also, the Ryzen 7 5800X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 5800H 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. The data shows that both these CPUs have same sized L2 caches. The Ryzen 7 5800X also has significantly more 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 5800H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
