[Comparison] AMD Ryzen 7 5825U vs Intel Core i7-1195G7 – The AMD CPU is very versatile

Here are two roided-up versions of popular 2021 processors, which will brawl today, in order to determine who’s better. The Ryzen 7 5825U was made as a placeholder, while AMD sorts out its 6000U-series chips, which seem to be arriving late, all while Intel s dominating with Alder Lake.

Speaking of Intel, the Core i7-1195G7 can supposedly push as high as 5.00GHz, but to be fair, it would need a good cooling setup that is often missing on smaller laptops, which are the key market for ULV processors.

CPU benchmarks

The Ryzen processor totally embarrasses its opponent in 3D Rendering, scoring 95% higher. However, the high base speeds come in handy in single-core performance in 2D Rendering, as while the Ryzen is still a sliver quicker, the Intel CPU manages to catch up pretty quickly.

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

Results are from our Photoshop benchmark test (the lower the score, the better)


The AMD CPU is more capable, as it gives you the option to expand your workflow into other Creator areas if you desire. On the other hand, if you’re certain about what you want, go ahead and get a Tiger Lake U-series laptop, as devices with these CPUs are going down in price, as retailers clear shelves to make space for Alder Lake.
