[Comparison] Intel Core i5-1240P vs AMD Ryzen 5 5625U – The Intel chip offers clear advantages

Continuing on with our assessment of the Core i5-1240P, today we have another challenger for it, this time the Ryzen 5 5625U, a CPU that closely resembles the Ryzen 5 5600U.

We would go as far as to say that it doesn’t really matter which you choose between the two, as the slight clock speed increase is negligible, as every laptop arrives with different cooling. Nevertheless, let’s see how the Core i5-1240P stacks up against the Ryzen 5 5625U.

Here is our Top Laptop CPU Ranking, which has the best laptop CPUs in a list, based on performance.

CPU benchmarks

The Core i5 offers significantly more power, with a 28% increase in 3D Rendering performance and a lead of more than a second inside our Adobe Photoshop benchmark.

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

With a decent increase in power, the Core i5 is the CPU to go for. It would also supposedly come with better efficiency, thanks to the division of P-cores and E-cores, while the integrated graphics on the inside can be used for productivity and Creator work, having better encoding and rendering capabilities.
