Competitors of Ryzen Embedded V1202B from Intel

We believe that the nearest equivalent to Ryzen Embedded V1202B from Intel is Core i5-2400, which is nearly equal in speed and lower by 3 positions in our rating.

Here are some closest Intel rivals to Ryzen Embedded V1202B:

Advantages of Intel Core i5-2400

Higher boost clock speed (3400 vs 2300 MHz)

Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)

TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)

AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)

Thermal Monitoring Technologies

IdentityProtectionTechVersion

QuickSyncVideo

Advantages of AMD Ryzen Embedded V1202B

0.2% better performance in benchmarks

More powerful video core

Much newer (21 February 2018 vs 9 January 2011)

Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 32 nm)

Lower power consumption (15W vs 95W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
