[Comparison] AMD Ryzen 7 5825U vs Ryzen 7 5800U – we are surprised

AMD is currently on their backfoot, however, that only means that they are preparing a big hit again their rivals in Blue. For now, their latest offerings are the Ryzen 5000U-series, which comes with three revamped CPUs, which shrink the dye from 7nm to 6nm and bring a slight increase to the clock speeds. Today we’re here to find out how important all of that is, by putting the Ryzen 7 5825U against the Ryzen 7 5800U.

CPU benchmarks

Well well well, the old dog certainly doesn’t want to give up, as the Ryzen 7 5800U scores 12% higher in Cinebench 20 and has a 0.3-second lead in Photoshop, which isn’t a lot, but we really expected it to be the other way around.

Results are from the Cinebench R23 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

While the older CPU does appear faster, we’ve only tested the Ryzen 7 5825U inside a single laptop, so there is more evidence still to be recorded. However, there really isn’t a lot of difference between the chips, so you can safely pick between the two of them. You should also find a laptop that can properly harness the power of these chips while having the features that you want.
