Comparison of the two processors

If you look at the names of these two processors, you would think that they differ only marginally, since only one additional letter makes the difference. In this comparison we will find out whether this assumption corresponds to reality.

Let's start with the basics, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600 came onto the market in the second quarter of 2022 and is therefore exactly 1 year newer than the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, which came onto the market in the second quarter of 2021. Both processors come from AMD's desktop segment and belong to the fourth generation of AMD's Ryzen 5 family. However, the two processors are still based on different architectures, while the AMD Ryzen 5 5600 is based on the Vermeer (Zen 3) architecture, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G is based on the Cezanne (Zen 3) architecture. The difference between these two architectures is that the Cezanne architecture processors also have an internal graphics unit.

Both processors are equipped with 6 processor cores and support hyperthreading technology, which turns the 6 cores into up to 12 computing threads if necessary. The base clock is also very slightly different, with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600 it is 3.50 gigahertz, while with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G it is slightly higher at 3.90 gigahertz. The maximum turbo clock rate is identical for both processors at 4.40 gigahertz. The processors have a free multiplier, so they can also be overclocked with appropriate cooling.

As already mentioned, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600 is not equipped with an internal graphics unit, but the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G uses the AMD Radeon Vega 7 of the Renoir architecture. This iGPU is equipped with 7 execution units and 448 shaders.

Both processors have 2 memory channels and can be operated with up to 64 gigabytes of DDR4-3200 RAM.
