About AMD Ryzen Desktop Processor
The AMD Ryzen 5 5500 is a Mid Range processor for thin and light laptops based on Zen 2 architecture.
he AMD Ryzen 5 5500 has 6 cores and 12 threads with a base clock of 2.1 GHz and can be boosted to 4 GHz.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5500 is based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture is manufactured on a 7 nm process by TSMC.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5500 is equipped with AMD StoreMI Technology.
A fast and easy way to expand and accelerate the storage in a desktop PC with an AMD Ryzen™ processor.
- AMD StoreMI technology accepts HDD and SSD pairings of any capacity
Whatever your storage acceleration needs, AMD StoreMI technology automatically pairs your most-used files with an SSD cache for peak performance.
AMD StoreMI technology has been rebuilt from the ground up with a new algorithm that makes it safe and simple to use.
Now, a StoreMI configuration simply mirrors your most-used files to an SSD of your choosing, leaving the original copy intact.
The software seamlessly redirects Windows and your applications to use the faster mirrored copy.
Removing or disabling the SSD cache leaves all of your files on the hard drive, right where they started.
Equipped with AMD “Zen 3” Core Architecture, this makes it one of the fastest cores in the world for PC gamers.
The “Zen 3” architecture represents the most comprehensive design overhaul of the “Zen” era.
Over 20 major changes include: wider and more flexible execution resources; significantly more load/store bandwidth to feed execution; and a streamlined front-end to get more threads in flight—and do it faster.
Latency-sensitive tasks like PC gaming especially benefit from this change, as tasks now have direct access to twice as much L3 cache versus “Zen 2.”
The Chipset is AMD Ryzen VR-Ready Premium. Making you give the best Virtual Reality views of all times.
AMD VR Ready processors provide confidence that your system has enough processing power to handle this advanced workload.
The TDP of the Chipset is specified by AMD to be at 15 Watts but can vary anywhere from 10 to 25 watts.
The 6 core APU comes with integrated Vega 7 graphics and supports DDR4-3200 and Low power LPDDR4-4266 RAM.
The Ryzen 5 5500U trades blow with the likes of the 10th Gen Intel Core i7 10750H which is is high-end gaming CPU with a TDP of 45 Watts.
This goes without saying it can easily handle your day-to-day tasks such as Browsing, Streaming, and using office productivity software.
If your day-to-day workflow involves using video editing, photo editing, and CAD applications, the chipset would give no problem handling such workloads.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5500 is powered by the Vega 7 Graphics that has a performance comparable to that of Nvidia Mx250 with 2GB of graphics memory.
The performance of the Vega 7 Graphics depends on a number of factors such as the configured TDP (12-25 Watts), Clock Speed, Cooling Solution, and RAM configuration.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5500 performs slightly better than its intel counterparts.
