General info

1.Supports 64-bit
AMD Ryzen 5 5500U
AMD Ryzen 7 4700U
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
3.GPU clock speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Ryzen 5 5500U)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U)

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
5.CPU temperature

105°C

105°C

If the CPU exceeds the maximum operating temperature then problems such as random resets can occur.
Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
8.number of transistors

9800 million

9800 million

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
9.OpenGL version

4.6

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U)

OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.

Performance

1.CPU speed

6 x 2.1GHz

8 x 2GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
6.L1 cache

384KB

512KB

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
7.L2 core

0.5MB/core

0.5MB/core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
8.Has an unlocked multiplier
AMD Ryzen 5 5500U
AMD Ryzen 7 4700U
Some processors come with an unlocked multiplier which makes them easy to overclock, allowing you to gain increased performance in games and other apps.
9.L3 core

1.33MB/core

1MB/core

More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

Memory

1.RAM speed

4266MHz

4266MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
5.Supports ECC memory
AMD Ryzen 5 5500U
AMD Ryzen 7 4700U
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.
6.bus transfer rate

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Ryzen 5 5500U)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U)

The bus is responsible for transferring data between different components of a computer or device.
DDR (Double Data Rate) memory is the most common type of RAM. Newer versions of DDR memory support higher maximum speeds and are more energy-efficient.
8.eMMC version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Ryzen 5 5500U)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U)

A higher version of eMMC allows faster memory interfaces, having a positive effect on the performance of a device. For example, when transferring files from your computer to the internal storage over USB.
