In today’s article, I am going to review AMD Ryzen 5 5500. I’m going to review its Cinebench R23 (Single-Core) and (Multi-core), Geekbench 5 (Single-Core) and (Multi-Core), Performance, Power Consumption, Integrated GPU, Ram support, and gaming experience.

AMD Ryzen 5 5500:
|Cinebench R23 (Single-Core)||None|
|Cinebench R23 (Multi-Core)||None|
We didn’t test this processor yet. We will publish another article when we test this processor on Cinebench R23.
|Geekbench 5 (Single-Core)||1473|
|Geekbench 5 (Multi-Core)||8034|
Geekbench 5 Test system’s potential for gaming, image processing, and video editing with the Compute Benchmark. This also tests your GPU’s power with support for the CUDA, OpenCL, and Metal APIs. This processor scored the best in the Geekbench 5. This processor also beats some of the latest and most powerful processors with new record-breaking scores of single-core and multi-core performance. The single-core scores are 1473, and the multi-core scores are 8034. As you guys know. The higher the Geekbench 5 score the higher performance of the processor. Geekbench 5 score that is twice as high will mean the processor is twice as powerful. This processor is faster than the Ryzen 5 3600 which is the most valuable CPU at this time.

AMD Ryzen 5 5500 is a desktop processor produced by AMD. This processor supports the socket AM4 which most important fact of the new AMD Ryzen processors. This processor has 6 cores and 12 threads. The base clock frequency of the AMD Ryzen 5 5500 is 3600 MHz, but with the new Turbo Boost technology, it can go up to 4200MHz. The size of the L3 cache is a whopping 32 MB. Unlike intel, this processor doesn’t have also integrated graphics. The instruction set architecture is based on x64 and can support x86. As the x64 will make more bandwidth then this x64 will be the best choice. This processor is based on Zen 3 architecture which is 25% faster and more efficient than the Zen 2 architecture. The model number of this processor is Vermeer.
|Base Frequency||3.6 GHz|
|Turbo Boost Frequency||4.2 GHz|
|Bus frequency||100 MHz|
|L1 Cache||64K (per core)|
|L2 Cache||512K (per core)|
|L3 Cache||16MB (shared)|
This processor has 6 cores and 12 threads with a base clock of 3.6GHz and, a boost clock of 4.2GHz. The bus frequency is 100MHz. which will help PCI lanes in terms of performance. This processor is also unlocked with a multiplier of 36x. This will help in overclocking this processor with the right amount of power consumption. This processor has the fastest L1, L2, and L3 cache memories. The L1 cache memory is 64K per core which means 6 cores have their own L1 cache memories. The L2 cache memory is also 512KB per core on these 6 cores. The L3 cache memory is also 16MB which is also shared with the system. If you are looking for the best value processor, then this AMD Ryzen 5 5500 is the best choice. In terms of gaming, this processor performs very great with good compatibility with the Nvidia GPU and with the AMD GPU. In terms of video editing and graphics rendering this processor also shows the best performance. Because of its base clock of 3.6GHz and the boost clock of 4.4GHz. This processor can be more powerful if you chose the right motherboard for it. Because this processor can be overclocked. But I would say no to overclocking because 4.2GHz is enough for today’s gaming and editing.
|Fabrication process||7 nm|
This processor is based on 7Nm process fabrication. The TDP shows 65W of power consumption. This processor can also be overclocked. So, you can increase the voltage in the motherboard interface if the motherboard supports the unlocked processors. The most amazing fact about this processor is that the max temperature support of this processor is 90C which is awesome. You can play games as long as you want and this will not affect the speeds or any thermal throttling issues if you have a good CPU cooler or water cooler. Sometimes when this processor takes a bunch of loaded applications then the processor increases the speeds of each core to the needs. This increases power consumption, thus making the CPU hotter. AMD is known for overheating so this will help in the state of the CPU performance and make it cooler.
This processor doesn’t have an integrated GPU. If you don’t have a GPU and you put this processor in a motherboard and you want to check the system performance, then sorry my friend because without a GPU this processor will not give a display.
|Memory Size||128 GB|
|Max. Memory Channels||2|
AMD Ryzen 5 5500 can support the DDR4 Ram with a memory frequency of 3200MHz. The max memory support of this AMD Ryzen 5 5500 is 128GB of ram. The max memory channel support is 2 channels of Ram. The max memory bandwidth is also 47.68 GB/s which is incredibly fast. There is no ECC support on this AMD Ryzen 5 5500.
This processor is a good option for gamers. Considering its capabilities, it performs well in almost any situation like editing, gaming, rendering, streaming, etc. So, if you are looking for a processor under $300 then I highly recommend buying this processor. There are more alternatives to this processor like core i7 12TH Gen and other AMD CPU’s. In this processor, you got 12 cores, 24 threads, and a boost clock of 4.4GHz. This will play every game at high FPS with a good combination of Graphics card and Ram. You will see no issues in the performance unless there is a bottleneck. So, to avoid that, I will make complete another article on the best compatible Ram, storage, and GPU for this processor. Just let me know in the comment.
So, this was my review of the AMD Ryzen 5 5500. If you guys learned something new then make sure to check out my other articles in the review, as well as my YouTube channel.
