AMD Ryzen 5 2500U vs AMD Ryzen 5 1400

AMD Ryzen 5 2500U

► remove AMD R5 2500U

The AMD Ryzen 5 2500U is a mobile APU for thin and light laptops that was announced in October 2017. It includes four Zen cores clocked at 2 to 3.6 GHz and offers 4 MB L3-Cache. The integrated graphics card is called Radeon RX Vega 8 and offers 8 CUs (512 Shaders) clocked at up to 1100 MHz. The TDP is configurable between 12 and 25 Watt (15 Watt nominal). More information on Raven Ridge can be found in our launch article.

► remove AMD R5 1400

The AMD Ryzen 5 1400 is a desktop processor with 4 cores and Hyper Threading (SMT). It is the slowest Ryzen 5 quad-core processor in the beginning of 2017, but the 65-watt TDP is similar to the hexa-core Ryzen 5 1600.

The Ryzen 5 1400 has a base frequency of 3.2 GHz and can reach up to 3.4 GHz via Turbo (up to 2 cores) or 3.45 GHz via XFR (also up to 2 cores). The maximum clock for 3-4 cores is 3.2 GHz.

The processor based on the Zen architecture is not fully convincing in games. AMD blames missing optimizations from the gaming producers.
