Ryzen 7 5800X vs Ryzen Threadripper 1920 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Ryzen 7 5800X is faster than the Ryzen Threadripper 1920. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Ryzen Threadripper 1920 in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Ryzen Threadripper 1920 has significantly more cores than the Ryzen 7 5800X. Indeed, the Ryzen Threadripper 1920 has 12 cores compared to 8 cores found in the Ryzen 7 5800X. It also has more threads than the Ryzen 7 5800X. Our comparison shows that the Ryzen 7 5800X has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen Threadripper 1920. Also, the Ryzen 7 5800X has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Ryzen 7 5800X CPU outputs less heat than a Ryzen Threadripper 1920 CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. In terms of cache, the Ryzen Threadripper 1920 has significantly more L2 cache when compared to the Ryzen 7 5800X. However, both these chips have the same amount of 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 5800X has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
