Intel Core i5-5200U vs i5-6200U vs i5-7200U – Performance Review


Core are considered to be workhorse falling between basic Core and Powerhouse i7 processors.

Price of Intel Core i5 processors have been low enough to be very competitive with Intel Core i3 processors. We are comparing three i5 processors using the same 14nm process.

Primary difference between each of these processors is , from 5200 to 6200 and then to 7200 there is a gradual improvement in clocks speed. Difference between i5-5200 and i5-6200 is only 4% where i5-7200 shows a 10% increase over i5-6200. But still if there is a $100 difference with the older model, it is wise to take the lower price.

In terms of Memory can only support 16GB RAM. and can support upto to 32 GB. 6th and 7th generation i5 processors support DDR4 while Gen 5 doesnt support DDR4. But most laptops come with less than 16GB RAM.

Other big change is support for 4K resolutions in i5-6200U and i5-7200U.

There is better thermal performance with the newer processors but not as significant.

Please have a look at the below details for more information. Overall there is not much to choose between these Mid Tier i5 cpus. But if you are looking for 4K resolution or DDR4 , then you now know which ones to pick.
