AMD Ryzen 3 3350U vs AMD Ryzen 5 3500U vs AMD Ryzen 5 3550H

AMD Ryzen 3 3350U

► remove from comparison AMD R3 3350U

The AMD Ryzen 3 3350U is a mobile SoC that was announced in January 2019. It combines four Zen+ cores (no SMT / Hyperthreading so only 4 threads) clocked at 2.1 - 3.5 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 6 graphics card with 6 CUs (384 Shaders) clocked at up to 1200 MHz. Specified at 15 Watt TDP, the SoC is intended for thin mid-range laptops. Compared to the similar Ryzen 3 3300U, the 3350U offers the same specifications according to AMD.

The Picasso SoCs use the Zen+ microarchitecture with slight improvements that should lead to a 3% IPS (performance per clock) improvements. Furthermore, the 12nm process allows higher clock rates at similar power consumptions.

The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. As the features of the Picasso APUs are the same compared to the Raven Ridge predecessors, we point to our Raven Ridge launch article.

AMD states that the Picasso APUs are about 8% faster than the predecessors. Therefore, the Ryzen 3 3350U should be similar to the Ryzen 5 2500U (2 - 3.6 GHz but with SMT).

AMD Ryzen 5 3500U

► remove from comparison AMD R5 3500U

The AMD Ryzen 5 3500U is a mobile SoC that was announced in January 2019. It combines four Zen+ cores (8 threads) clocked at 2.1 GHz to 3.7 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 8 iGPU with 8 CUs (512 Shaders) clocked at up to 1200 MHz. Specified at 15 Watt TDP, the SoC is intended for thin mid-range laptops. In Chromebooks, AMD calles the APU AMD Ryzen 5 3500C, but the specifications (and performance) are the same.

The Picasso SoC uses the Zen+ microarchitecture with slight improvements that should lead to a 3% IPS (performance per clock) improvements. Furthermore, the 12 nm process allows for higher clocks at similar power consumption.

The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. As the features of the Picasso APUs are the same compared to the Raven Ridge predecessors, we point to our Raven Ridge launch article.

Performance

The average 3500U in our database matches Intel Core i7-1065G7 in multi-thread performance to be an OK lower mid-range option for thinner, lighter laptops and truly small mini-PCs.

Power consumption

The Ryzen 5 has a default TDP of 15 W (also known as the long-term power limit), a value that laptop manufacturers are free to set to anything between 12 W and 35 W with clock speeds and performance changing correspondingly. The 12 nm TSMC process this chip is manufactured on makes for lower-than-average energy efficiency.

AMD Ryzen 5 3550H

► remove from comparison AMD R5 3550H

The AMD Ryzen 5 3550H is a mobile SoC that was announced in January 2019. It combines four Zen+ cores (8 threads) clocked at 2.1 GHz to 3.7 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics adapter with 8 CUs (512 Shaders) clocked at up to 1,200 MHz. Compared to the similar Ryzen 5 3500U, the 3550H offers a 20 Watt higher TDP and therefore a better performance under long periods of load. The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. As the features of the Picasso APUs are the same compared to the Raven Ridge predecessors, we point to our Raven Ridge launch article.

The Picasso SoCs use the Zen+ microarchitecture with slight improvements that should lead to a 3% IPS (performance per clock) improvements. Furthermore, the 12 nm process allows higher clock rates at similar power consumptions.

Performance

The average 3550H in our database proves itself as a solid mid-range CPU, its multi-thread benchmark scores hovering around those of Intel Core i7-10710U and Core i5-8257U. Which is a little slow for an H-class processor but still more than enough for the vast majority of apps and games, provided one is happy to wait a little longer than usual for that 4K video encoding job to get completed.

Power consumption

This Ryzen 5 has a default TDP (also known as the long-term power limit) of 35 W. Laptop manufacturers are free to change this value to anything between 12 W and 35 W, with clock speeds and performance changing correspondingly. Last but not the least, this CPU is built with a fairly old 12 nm TSMC process for below average energy efficiency.
