Today, we’ll be leveling two great laptop processors that are evenly matched, having almost the same working speed and processing power. Also, they both debuted at the mid-range market, making them very competitive. The AMD Ryzen 5 5500U might sound new, but it’s just the rebranded version of the Ryzen 4600U as they share the same Zen 2 architecture.
On the other hand, the Intel-core i5-1135G7 uses the latest Tiger Lake architecture which exposes it to more improvement in power-efficiency and performance. However, the two processors come with separate integrated GPU solutions, and that’s what we’ll be comparing today to see the better one.
