General info

The base and maximum clock speed of the CPU AMD Ryzen 5 2500X, number of processing cores and threads.

CPU Cores and Base Frequency

The general performance of a CPU can easily be determined based on the number of its cores and the thread count, as well as the base frequency and Turbo frequency. The more GHz and cores a CPU has, the better. Please note that high technical specs require using a powerful cooling system and a quality chipset (check VRM on the motherboard).

Frequency: 3.60 GHz   CPU Cores: 4
Turbo (1 Core): 4.00 GHz   CPU Threads: 8
Hyperthreading: Yes   Overclocking: Yes
Turbo (4 Cores): 3.80 GHz  

Internal Graphics

Some manufacturers complement their CPUs with graphic chips, such a solution being especially popular in laptops. The higher the clock frequency of a GPU is and the bigger its memory, the better.

GPU (Turbo): No turbo   Max. Memory: --

Hardware codec support

Here we deal with specs that are used by some CPU manufacturers. These numbers are mainly technical and can be neglected for the purpose of the comparison analysis.

h264: No
JPEG: No
h265 8bit: No
h265 10bit: No
VP8: No
VP9: No
VC-1: No
AVC: No

Memory & PCIe

These are memory standards supported by CPUs. The higher such standards, the better a CPU’s performance is.

Devices using this processor

You probably know already what devices use CPUs. These can be a desktop or a laptop.

Used in: Unknown

Geekbench 5, 64bit (Single-Core)

Geekbench 5 benchmark is the newest software suit. It allows to account for the effect of memory performance on processor performance. Completely new algorithms provide the quite accurate benchmark testing results of the single-core CPU.

Geekbench 5, 64bit (Multi-Core)

Geekbench 5 software suite shows benchmark testing results of the memory performance and speed of the multi-core processor. The higher the GeekBench score, the better processor. Here the hyperthreading ability is counted.
