Ah, forgot to check AVX and SSE support. The i5-5250M does have AVX, so although they have similar benchmark scores for regular instructions, it makes sense that the 4417U would be slower. I only fold on 2 threads too.
GTX 1660 Super, GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 950, Radeon HD 7770 + occasional CPU folding in the cold
