General info

1.Supports 64-bit
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
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.
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.
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.
Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
5.Has integrated graphics

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

Performance

1.CPU speed

6 x 3.6GHz

6 x 3.6GHz

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.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
4.L3 cache

16MB

32MB

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

4.25GHz

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

576KB

384KB

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

Memory

1.RAM speed

2933MHz

3200MHz

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

43.71GB/s

47.68GB/s

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
4.Supports ECC memory
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
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 2600X
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
2.Has dynamic frequency scaling
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
3.Has AVX
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
AVX is used to help speed up calculations in multimedia, scientific and financial apps, as well as improving Linux RAID software performance.
4.Has MMX
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
MMX is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
5.Has F16C
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
F16C is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
6.uses multithreading
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
Multithreading technology (such as Intel's Hyperthreading or AMD's Simultaneous Multithreading) provides increased performance by splitting each of the processor's physical cores into virtual cores, also known as threads. This way, each core can run two instruction streams at once.
