[Comparison] Intel Core i7-11390H vs AMD Ryzen 7 5800H – The choice is obvious

This will be horrible to witness, so keep the children and faint of heart away from the screen while reading this. The Core i7-11390H is a very controversial chip, which strives to be both efficient and powerful, resulting in a struggle at doing both.

It is a public secret that in recent years AMD has done a better job at optimizing its processors when it comes to power consumption, so if we are strictly comparing a Ryzen to a Tiger Lake H35 CPU, you’re sacrificing a lot of performance for supposed lower thermals and increase in battery life that might not even be there.

Today we are comparing the Core i7-11390H against the Ryzen 7 5800H.

CPU benchmarks

Ryzen chips have been notorious for their 3D Rendering performance, which is put on full display. The Ryzen 7 5800H heavily outperforms its competition by 79% in Cinebench 20. Moving to Photoshop, scores were much, much closer, showcasing the effect that high clock speeds can have. Also, Photoshop rendering times tend to be quicker, which is another advantage that the Core i7 has in its sleeve. Still, the Ryzen 7 comes out on top in Photoshop, with a lead of 0.7 seconds.

Results are from the Cinebench 20 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

Conclusion

If you work mostly with 2D Rendering software, both processors will do a fine job, but the Ryzen gives you much more room for movement if you want to expand your knowledge of Creator programs and instantly be on a good level of performance. Also, in the laptops that we tested with the CPUs, most of them tend to have a longer battery life, despite the higher TDP and performance. Prices of laptops with the Ryzen 7 will likely e going down, as the new Zen 3+ family of Ryzen 6000-series hits the store shelves inside both Gaming and Creator laptops.
