A10-6800K vs Xeon X5450 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the A10-6800K is faster than the Xeon X5450. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon X5450 in all gaming tests too.

With info from our database, we find that the Xeon X5450 has significantly more cores with 4 cores whereas the A10-6800K has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the A10-6800K has a slightly higher clock speed than the Xeon X5450. A A10-6800K CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon X5450 CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. In terms of cache, the Xeon X5450 has significantly more L2 cache when compared to the A10-6800K

Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. Indeed, the A10-6800K has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
