General info

1.Supports 64-bit
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5-9400F
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
2.semiconductor size

14nm

14nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
3.Thermal Design Power (TDP)

65W

65W

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
4.Has integrated graphics
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5-9400F
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 3.5GHz

6 x 2.9GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.CPU threads

8

6

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.L2 cache

2MB

1.5MB

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
4.L3 cache

16MB

9MB

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
5.turbo clock speed

3.7GHz

4.1GHz

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
6.L1 cache

256KB

384KB

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

Memory

1.RAM speed

2667MHz

2666MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
2.memory channels

2

2

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
3.Supports ECC memory
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5-9400F
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.

Features

1.Has AES
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5-9400F
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
2.Has dynamic frequency scaling
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5-9400F
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
3.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5-9400F
It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
4.SSE version

4.2

4.2

SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.
5.Has AVX
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5-9400F
AVX is used to help speed up calculations in multimedia, scientific and financial apps, as well as improving Linux RAID software performance.
6.Has MMX
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5-9400F
MMX is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.

Benchmarks

1.performance per watt

251.2

72.8

This means the CPU is more efficient, giving a greater amount of performance for each watt of power used.
