In this comparison, we have the classic rumble – AMD vs Intel. We have the newer AMD Ryzen 5 4500U – part of the new Ryzen line of processors, versus the Intel Core i7-10510U which was released in 2019.
Both CPUs are a popular choice for mobile platforms and we are going to see which CPU does better in our series of tests.
In summary, the main difference between these processors is the much higher max frequency of the Core i7-10510 – 4.90 GHz versus 4.00 GHz, respectively. On the other side, the Ryzen 5 4500U has a higher Base clock (2.30 GHz vs 1.80 GHz), and more physical cores – 6 vs 4, while the Core i7-10510U has an advantage with its Hyperthreading.
|AMD Ryzen 5 4500U||Intel Core i7-10510U|
|Cores / Threads||6 / 6||4 / 8|
|Base / Max frequency||2.30 – 4.00 GHz||1.80 – 4.90 GHz|
|Cache||8 MB Cache||8 MB Cache|
|TDP / up / down||15W / 25W / 10W||15W / 25W / 10W|
|Memory support||DDR4-3200MHz, LPDDR4-4266MHz||
|Integrated graphics||AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 (Ryzen 4000)||Intel UHD Graphics|
In the first 3D rendering benchmark the Ryzen is 34% faster than the Intel and it also takes the win in our Photoshop rendering benchmark by being 12% faster.
Results are from the Cinebench 15 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Fritz chess benchmark (the higher the score, the better)
In the GPU department, we can see a huge difference between the two contestants. It won’t be an overstatement if we say that the RX Vega 6 inside of the Ryzen 5 is roughly two times better than its Intel counterpart.
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
In terms of gaming, the Ryzen does not leave the Intel a chance. Both in Dota 2 and in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the Ryzen does a substantially better job than its competitor.

All in all, in this comparison we choose Ryzen as our clear winner. Not only does the processor perform better in our CPU benchmarks, but it shows more than a two times better performance when it comes to the integrated graphics. Overall, Ryzen is the clear winner in this comparison. Furthermore, the Ryzen 5 4500U is usually found on less expensive laptops than the Intel which also makes it more cost-effective.
