6 Core/12 Threads & 32MB L3 Cache (Ryzen 5 5600x)

8 Core/16 Threads & 16MB L3 Cache (Ryzen 7 5700G)

What difference would this be in terms of real world performance? How would it impact applications like Games, Text editor, Docker & VMs?
 
More L3 space = More information could be loaded to the Cache for inter cpu communication and data from ram (since L3 feeds data from L2 cache also known as cache victim, also the middle man from outer system to cpu).

Depends on the archiechture, it could be beneficial if the architechture is designed or it, but if you're comparing between those 2, i would prefer 5700G since it has more core and threads, and 5600X could come close in single core performance to 5700G at stock, but at multicore and threads, 5700G still wins since it got more core and threads.
