Ryzen 7 5800U vs Core i7-8650U specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 7 5800U is faster than the Core i7-8650U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-8650U in all gaming tests too.

With info from our database, we find that the Ryzen 7 5800U has significantly more cores with 8 cores whereas the Core i7-8650U has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i7-8650U. Both the Ryzen 7 5800U and Core i7-8650U have the same clock speed. Despite this, the Ryzen 7 5800U has a slightly higher turbo speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. In terms of cache, the Ryzen 7 5800U has significantly more L2 cache when compared to the Core i7-8650U. The Ryzen 7 5800U also has significantly more 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 5800U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
