Re: i5 4200U vs i7 4500U in photoshop

i5-4200U is a dual core 1.6Ghz, 4th Gen processor with hyperthreading and 3MB of cache.

i7-4500U is a dual core 1.8Ghz, 4th Gen processor with hyperthreading and 4MB of cache.

One would expect about a 13% difference between the two based purely on clock speed, and maybe an additional 3% in certain apps based on cache.   Since they are the same family and same architecture, you really can just go off clock speed.

They are going to be struggling  with heavy photoshop work, but they will handle it.
