I have both the 5600g & 5700g processors. Both have the same boards, memory, and m.2 SSD. In Halo Infinite, the 5700g pulls an additional 18fps average over the 5600g @1080p with medium settings The best is Warzone COD. 5600g @720p Low settings 44fps (at lower settings 21fps) 5700g @1080p low-medium settings 56fps

double the price just for 25% more multicore performance? is it really worth it?

I bought the 5700g, probably has higher resale value compared to 5600g

"3% increase in performance doesn't justify the 100$ price increase" you missed the parts about more physical and logical cores better igpu and oh 25% multi-core performance... And that sweet R7 branding. Kisses.

+5 fps does not justify an additional 100$ AMD

Watch carefully admin you write the wrong name on the right-hand side both are 5700g. it should be 5600g.

From a vmware perspective, more cores more workflow, $100 seems to be minor for Ryzen 7 over Ryzen 5. Ryzen 5 5600g at the moment is choking on some vms. My Ryzen 7 2700 seemed to perform a bit better... Im grabbing the Ryzen 7 5700g 8 /16 seems to show better.

~3% performance increase xxx doesn't justify extra $100 .

As single core, yes, extra $100 it's not justified, but if we speak for all 8 cores then yes, it's worth it. Is at least 20% or more power overall, so go for it, on the long run is better.

yoshy262, What type of tasks or aplication generally use all cores? How a user can influence the processor to use all the cores during task processing? As far as I know, most of tasks are processed by a single core. What is the point to compare the performance of all cores in such cases?

NEMO, Browsers are one of the most used applications on a user's computer. They're built to use multiple threads and processes efficiently. All commodity OSes rely on kernels with multiple threads or processes, and they also rely on running many background daemon processes, too. More cores gets you more parallelism.

AAA, Thanks was looking for this info exactly, wondering if more cores would speed up tons of open tabs with charts and social media like dextools, tradingview, twitter..

Anon, On Firefox use an add-on called Auto Tab Discard and either Vertical Tabs or Tree of Tabs. Or don't if you don't wish to escalate the situation. I've got 315 tabs open right now and I do try to close a bulk of them every day.
