Benchmarks

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

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

Results are from the Fritz chess benchmark (the higher the score, the better)

For the purposes of this comparison, we have chosen to compare the performance of the two chips found in Acer Aspire 5 and Dell Latitude 3580 respectively. Judging by the charts above, the results in our 3D rendering (tested with Cinebench 15) are really close – Intel Core i5-7200U manages to outperform its rival by just around 1%. However, Intel Core i3-8130U is 12% faster in the Adobe Photoshop test and surpasses its opponent by 5% in our raw synthetic benchmarks (tested with Fritz).

Conclusion

In conclusion, we can say that despite the tight race, Intel Core i3-8130U is the winner in our comparison given the results it scored in our benchmark tests.
