In a vacuum, maybe. The 5700G has more cores but they're slower.

Outside of that vacuum, the 5600 should be cheaper and a better value.

How about the 5700X?

 

The 5700G has 8 cores 16 threads like the 5700X and 5800X but due to having the Vega graphics it has way less L3 cache which means lower performance in gaming.

If you don't need the integrated GPU, skip the 5700G. Even a 3700X or 3800x is better than it.

Depends on if you need more multicore or singlecore

 

5700g has half the cache of its non g 5600 and 5700 counterparts so yes itll be quite abit slower though judging by the 5800x3d which has tons of cache being basically unnafected by ram speed >3200 id assume you can mitigate some performance loss by running your rams as fast as possible or at 1:1 fclk ~5000mhz due to cezanne insane fclk ability but 5000mhz is well into pain territory for ram oc and not all boards can do 5000, doesnt really help that theres few 16gbit ics that can even reach those speeds (i only know of 16gbit rev b and cjr) if you wanna run 32gb and ryzen imc gets considerably worse with more ranks, not noticable on ryzens that do <2100fclk but this is a cezanne capable of 2500 ish fclk, not an issue if you just run 16gb ram since theres plenty of cheap good options, mainly klevv 3600c18 djrs

 

It does have igpu but thatll only be useful as a backup incase your gpu dies or something
