AMD’s Ryzen 5 5500 is almost on par with the Ryzen 5600G in Geekbench

AMD just added seven new Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) processors to its Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) line. If some leaked benchmarks are any indication, the Ryzen 5 5500, which is part of the latest upgrades, might become one of the top CPUs for gaming.

Hardware detective Benchleaks has discovered a Ryzen 5 5500 Geekbench 5 submission that provides us a taste of the Ryzen chip’s single-threaded and multi-threaded performance. The Ryzen 5 5500 was tested on the MSI MEG X570 Godlike, which is the same motherboard we utilised for our testbed.

The Ryzen 5 5600G outperformed the Ryzen 5 5500 by 4.4 percent in single-threaded performance. However, the Ryzen 5 5600G was only 1.3 percent faster than the Ryzen 5 5500 in multi-threaded performance.


The Ryzen 5 5600X outperformed the Ryzen 5 5500 by 12.3% when it came to single-threaded performance. The multi-threaded margin was approximately 9.3%.

Because the Core i5-12400 is faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X, the Ryzen 5 5500 isn’t a match for the hexa-core Alder Lake processor. Furthermore, the Core i5-12400 outperformed the Ryzen 5 5500 by 20 percent and 17.2 percent in single and multi-threaded performance, respectively.

Ryzen 5500 5700X scaled 1

The Ryzen 5 5600 costs $199, while the Ryzen 5 5500 costs $159. The Ryzen 5 5600X now costs $224.99 thanks to recent price reductions. To decide whether the Ryzen 5 5500 is the new affordable processor for consumers, more than a single Geekbench result will be required. There’s also the Core i5-12400F from Intel, which costs $179.99, so there’s a lot of competition in this price range.

The Ryzen 5 5500 features AMD’s acclaimed Zen 3 cores and a six-core, 12-thread design. It’s a recipe that has worked for the chipmaker, so changing it now makes little sense.

The core configuration is comparable to that of AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 5 5600 processors. There are, however, some significant variances between the three Ryzen 5 SKUs. The L3 cache on the Ryzen 5 5500 is just 16MB, whereas the L3 cache on the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 5 5600 has 32MB. As a result, it’s safe to presume that the Ryzen 5 5500, like the Ryzen 5 5600G APU, has a monolithic die. The Ryzen 5 5500 silicon could be defective dies that don’t qualify for the Ryzen 5 5600G or dies with the iGPU disabled by AMD.

Despite the fact that AMD’s Ryzen 5 processors have a 65W TDP, the clock rates vary from model to model. The Ryzen 5 5500 features a base frequency of 3.6 GHz and a peak clock of 4.2 GHz. In comparison to the Ryzen 5 5600X, the base clock is 100 MHz lower and the boost clock is 400 MHz lower. When comparing the Ryzen 5 5500 to the Ryzen 5 5600G, the base and boost clock frequencies are 300 and 200 MHz lower, respectively.
