[Comparison] AMD Ryzen 7 5825U vs Ryzen 7 5700U – Clear leads, but are they enough?

The Ryzen 5000-series has been AMD’s shining light in 2021 and 2022, as the 6000-series seems to be coming a bit late. Despite being a year old, the CPUs provide great performance and efficiency. Today we have two Ryzen 5000U-series CPUs, which are more different than you would realize. The Ryzen 7 5825U has only recently been released, while the Ryzen 7 5700U uses the older Zen 2 architecture. Let’s see how far apart they are performance-wise.
