[Comparison] Intel Core i7-11370H vs AMD Ryzen 5 4600H – 3D Rendering is where the Ryzen shines, while 2D favours Intel

Core i7 against a Ryzen 5? Are you serious? Yes, we are. Ryzen CPUs have been pretty good in the last few years, outclassing their Intel counterparts in the desktop market. Laptop manufacturers have been slower to adopt the mobile Ryzen units, even though they offer some of the same performance that made desktop Ryzen CPUs the #1 choice when it comes to processors. Today we will compare the Core i7-11370H against the Ryzen 5 4600H, which is now a year old but still offers great performance, which we will showcase today.

CPU benchmarks

In the 3D Rendering benchmark with Cinebench 20, the Ryzen 5 4600H scored 24% higher, which is evidence of its destructive multi-threaded power. Things took a turn when it came to the 2D Rendering test with Photoshop, however, where the Core i7 was the better processor, finishing the test with a lead of a bit more than one second.

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

To conclude, both CPUs are great in their respective fields. The Ryzen 5 4600H completely crushed it, when it came to 3D Rendering, so if that is your main focus of work, you should go with it. If image editing and processing are more of your style, then the Intel Core i7-11370H will suit you better. However, when you look at the prices of devices with these processors, you would see a big difference favoring the Ryzen 5. So it is up to you to decide if those 1.5 seconds are worth the extra cash.

1.16 seconds is presented in the article as “… a nearly two-second difference”. Hmmm, interesting choice of words in technical world. Marketing department?
