  • Single Thread Performance importance

    I'm currently running a Ryzen 1500x with a single thread score of 1854 and noticed that the more budget priced Pentium G5600 has a score of 2277, a difference of 423 points. What I wanted to ask was would the Pentium chip be faster(snappier) for a user who simply browses the web, plays movies and music, and looks at photos. No gaming or encoding of any kind. I use Linux as my OS. Thanks for any advice.

    Pentium G5600 is only two cores. So as soon as you get beyond that the Ryzen will be a better choice.
    Either is fine for web browsing and EMail. Fast SSD is likely more important than the CPU choice.
