[Comparison] AMD Ryzen 7 5800U vs Ryzen 7 5800H – The difference between ULV chips and H-series CPUs is gettings smaller

If this CPU doesn’t put a stop to the Ryzen 7 5800U’s dominance, we don’t know what will. The Ryzen 7 5800H is a beast in both 3D and 2D Rendering and is the final bullet in the chamber.

The processors are very similar, with both of them featuring an 8/16 layout, a boost speed of 4.40GHz, and 20MB of cache. The difference between them is the lower TDP and lower base clock on the Ryzen 5 5800U, which will undoubtedly have an effect on the performance. Without further ado, let’s hop right in.

CPU benchmarks

At last, the dominance of the Ryzen 7 5800U comes to an end. The Ryzen 7 5800H scored 18% higher in 3D Rendering and was nearly 0.7 seconds faster in our Adobe Photoshop benchmark.

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

The performance that the Ryzen 7 5800U is able to provide is very surprising. The fact that it can compete and even win against H-series chips, even if they are a year old or a lower price bracket is insane and truly shows how technology has progressed in the last couple of years. Obviously, comparing these CPUs is unfair to the Ryzen 7 5800U, since it is positioned in a lower category, but what it also does is allow it to display its performance when compared to a more powerful opponent.
