The AMD Ryzen 5 5600H is a high-performance processing unit with low power consumption per thread and high multi-tasking capability launched in January 2021. The performance of 5600H is highly competitive with the Intel Core i9-9980HK processor, yet it has a lot of advantages including more cores and higher clock speed. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600H is an extremely fast processor that can support heavy multitasking while having a low power consumption.
The 5600H comes with 6 integrated cores with SMT support hence can simultaneously process 12 threads at a time. The cores are clocked at a base frequency of 3.3GHz, which is 1.0GHz higher than the base clock speed of 5600H. Ryzen 5 5600H has a turbo boost frequency of 4.0GHz and an integrated Radeon Vega 7 graphics which operates at a maximum GPU frequency of up to 1800MHz with a fully unlocked CPU/GPU design to support the needs of today’s gamers and enthusiasts.
This processor is manufactured using the modern 7nm TSMC’s FinFET technology which greatly improves its performance and power efficiency per Watt. The Ryzen 5 5600H is designed to offer high (optimal) performance under 45W TDP (Thermal Design Power). However, the default TDP can be configured as low as 35W and as high as 54W to offer desired performance depending on the user’s preference. Just ensure the laptop is equipped with an efficient cooling system.
Additionally, the Ryzen 5 5600H is based on the Zen 3 architecture which offers a significantly higher IPC (instructions per cycle). It features a doubled L3 (16MB) cache memory per core contrary to Zen 2 based chip dies. Summarily, the Zen 3 architecture improves the overall performance and efficiency of the Ryzen 5 5600H, that is: the instructions per unit of energy is approximately doubled. Furthermore, it offers support for a dual DDR4 memory channel that operates up to 3200MHz as well as an LPDDR4 memory controller that runs up to 4266MHz RAM thus saving on power consumption for laptops.
