This benchmark is not significant. You should actually check the passmark score on cpubenchmark.net.
It's not like that your motherboard should have enough slots to install the ram. If your motherboard have only two slots then you can only install 16 GB RAM. No more than that.
why is that a fail? and I'm not familiar with this scores either, so what's the meaning of that geekbench score? does it mean that 5200U 1000x better than 6200U (seriously asking)
In the above comparison 6200U supports Maximum memory size 32,768 MB does the Mean Supported RAM? if yes then can I conclude with this that RAM support is based on Processor not based on Mather Board? Appreciate experts advise Regards
Sometimes improvements apply only to some areas, mostly in terms of the actual performance, rather than benchmarks. That's if the improvements are made in collaboration with driver updates. But honestly, something is not right with the tests done here. You should expect the small improvement of 6200u, but certainly nothing significant. Graphics chip is the biggest improvement here.
Um.. The AES rating is an epic fail too
the tests for the 6200u need to be redone on a machine as optimized for it as the 5200U was tested on. There's no way the 6200 has lower performance when it is universally described as 0-10% improvement per clock
