    General info

    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.
    2.Has integrated graphics
    AMD Ryzen 5 3600
    AMD Ryzen 5 5500U
    With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
    3.GPU clock speed

    Not applicable

    300MHz

    The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
    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.
    If the CPU exceeds the maximum operating temperature then problems such as random resets can occur.
    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.
    7.DirectX version

    Not applicable

    12

    DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
    8.OpenGL version

    Not applicable

    4.6

    OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
    9.GPU turbo

    Not applicable

    1800MHz

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

    Performance

    1.CPU speed

    6 x 3.6GHz

    6 x 2.1GHz

    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.
    When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
    4.Has an unlocked multiplier
    AMD Ryzen 5 3600
    AMD Ryzen 5 5500U
    Some processors come with an unlocked multiplier which makes them easy to overclock, allowing you to gain increased performance in games and other apps.
    A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
    6.L3 cache

    32MB

    8MB

    A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
    7.L1 cache

    384KB

    384KB

    A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
    8.L2 core

    0.5MB/core

    0.5MB/core

    More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
    9.L3 core

    5.33MB/core

    1.33MB/core

    More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

    Memory

    1.RAM speed

    3200MHz

    4266MHz

    It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
    This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
    DDR (Double Data Rate) memory is the most common type of RAM. Newer versions of DDR memory support higher maximum speeds and are more energy-efficient.
    More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
    The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
