In terms of overall gaming performance, the AMD Ryzen 3 2200U 4-Core 2.5GHz is massively better than the AMD APU A10-5750M Quad-Core when it comes to running the latest games. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

The Ryzen 3 2200U was released over three years more recently than the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core, and so the Ryzen 3 2200U is likely to have far better levels of support, and will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core when running the latest games.

The APU A10-5750M Quad-Core has 2 more cores than the Ryzen 3 2200U. With 4 cores, the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core is much less likely to struggle with the latest games, or bottleneck high-end graphics cards when running them.

Both the AMD Ryzen 3 2200U 4-Core 2.5GHz and the AMD APU A10-5750M Quad-Core have the same number of threads. The APU A10-5750M Quad-Core has one thread per physical core, whereas the Ryzen 3 2200U uses hyperthreading and has 2 logical threads per physical core.

Multiple threads are useful for improving the performance of multi-threaded applications. Additional cores and their accompanying thread will always be beneficial for multi-threaded applications. Hyperthreading will be beneficial for applications optimized for it, but it may slow others down. For games, the number of threads is largely irrelevant, as long as you have at least 2 cores (preferably 4), and hyperthreading can sometimes even hit performance.

More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction (CPI) will vary so much.

The Ryzen 3 2200U and APU A10-5750M Quad-Core are not from the same family of CPUs, so their clock speeds are by no means directly comparable. Bear in mind, then, that while the Ryzen 3 2200U and the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core both have the same clock frequency, this is by no means an indicator that the two CPUs will provide the same level of performance. As such, we need to look elsewhere for more reliable comparisons.

Aside from the clock rate, the next-most important CPU features for PC game performance are L2 and L3 cache size. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 - but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

The APU A10-5750M Quad-Core has a 3072 KB bigger L2 cache than the Ryzen 3 2200U, and although the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core does not appear to have an L3 cache, its larger L2 cache means that it wins out in this area.

The maximum Thermal Design Power is the power in Watts that the CPU will consume in the worst case scenario. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU - the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced.

The Ryzen 3 2200U has a 20 Watt lower Maximum TDP than the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core, and was created with a 18 nm smaller manufacturing technology. What this means is the Ryzen 3 2200U will consume slightly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects. This will lower your yearly electricity bill slightly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms (unless you overclock).

The APU A10-5750M Quad-Core has an on-board GPU, which means that it will be capable of running basic graphics applications (i.e., games) without the need for a dedicated graphics card. The Ryzen 3 2200U, however, does not, and you will probably have to look for a dedicated card if you wish to use it at all.

On-board GPUs tend to be fairly awful in comparison to dedicated cards from the likes of AMD or Nvidia, but as they are built into the CPU, they also tend to be cheaper and require far less power to run (this makes them a good choice for laptops). We would recommend a dedicated card for running the latest games, but integrated GPUs are improving all the time and casual gamers may find less recent games perform perfectly acceptably.

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe AMD Ryzen 3 2200U 4-Core 2.5GHz is an entry-level, low-power notebook APU based on AMD's 14nm Zen micro-architecture. It offers 2 physical cores (4 logical), clocked at 2.5 GHz base clock speed and up to 3.4 GHz boost clock speed. It has a locked multiplier and therefore cannot be overclocked using traditional methods. It has 4MB of L3 Cache. Level 3 cache is a static memory bank of a processor and it is used to feed it instructions. It also has 1MB L2 Cache and 384KB L1 Cache. This processor also supports DDR4 based RAMs with maximum memory support of 32GB. The AMD Ryzen 3 2200U 4-Core 2.5GHz has a default Thermal Power Design of 15W, making it a very power-efficient CPU that should provide lengthy laptop battery life. Among its many features are Cool n Quiet, CoolCore Technology, Extended Frequency Range (XFX), Pure Power and Precision Boost are enabled. It features an integrated Vega 3 GPU with 3 Execution units, 192 Shaders, and a maximum clock speed of 1100MHz. This is a very low-end graphics chip which may be able to run less demanding eSports titles and older games at 900p screen resolution.APU A10-5750M Quad-Core is a high-end mobile processor based on the 32nm, Richland micro-architecture.
It offers 4 Cores, initially clocked at 2.5GHz that go up to 3.5GHz, in Turbo Mode and 4MB of L2 Cache. It features integrated Graphics called Radeon HD 8650G which offer 384 Shader Processing Units and perform substantially better than Radeon HD 7660G. The max memory speed supported by the CPU is DDR3-1866. It consumes up to 35 Watt.
Expect a 10% performance boost when compared to its predecessor (A10-4600M). This CPU is still a bottleneck for high-end GPUs such as Radeon HD 7970M/GeForce GTX 680M and should only be paired with performance GPUs - Radeon HD 7850M/GeForce GTX 660M.
