AMD Ryzen 5 5500 Geekbench results put it on par with the Ryzen 5600G

AMD's Ryzen 5 5500 chip has been spotted on Geekbench. According to the benchmark entry, the upcoming processor offers similar performance to the Ryzen 5 5600G, suggesting it could be an interesting alternative for someone looking for an affordable CPU without an iGPU.

In the Geekbench 5 entry spotted by Benchleaks, we see a Ryzen 5 5500 CPU on an MSI MEG X570 Godlike with 2x16GB of DDR4-3600 memory. According to the entry data, the chip hits a maximum clock frequency of 4.25GHz, despite the spec sheet listing its boost clock speed as “up to 4.2GHz”.

The 6C/12T Ryzen 5 5500 processor was on par with the Ryzen 5 5600G, despite the slightly lower clock frequencies. In the single-core test, the Ryzen 5 5500 was just 4 points lower (1468 vs 1472), but the Ryzen 5 5500 outperformed the 5600G by 4% in the multi-core test. Note that the Ryzen 5 5600G performance numbers used for the comparison are based on the average of all Geekbench 5 results scored by this APU.

If you compare this CPU side-by-side with the Ryzen 5 5600X, the Ryzen 5 5500 is 10% slower in the single-core test and 7% slower in the multi-core test. These differences, however, can be reduced if you overclock the new chip.

KitGuru says: With the Ryzen 5 5500 coming in at $159, you can get the same performance as the $199 Ryzen 5 5600G, minus the iGPU. Would you spend the extra $40 for the iGPU?
