Let's say this will be for say The SIMS or card games. Not any PUBG or such.
https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-8250U-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-2500U/m338266vsm378273 gives the i5 the nod as well. As to made for gaming, how so?
My lower limit for gaming laptops when folk ask me is any CPU that beats the old i5-2500 and the 1050 Ti (mobile.) If they go less then it's card games.
Hey, I was looking for a computer for light gaming. I had a bad experience with my Lenovo laptop with the same Ryzen 5 processor above. Apparently it didn’t integrate the cpu/integrated graphics well with the computer. I tried everything to get it to work but it didn’t do anything. I found lots of people with the same problem and saw videos of other computers with the Ryzen 5 running perfectly, so I am returning it. Now, I was looking for a new laptop and I was set on an Acer Aspire 5 with 8GB RAM, 228GB SSD, the 8250u and MX150 Graphics until I went to Best Buy and they said the Ryzen would perform better because it is made for gaming. Didn’t make sense to me considering the Ryzen 5 has a lower performing CPU and 1GB of VRAM. So that’s why I’m asking here. For very light gaming like a decent FPS rate at 720p which will perform better?
