Celeron G1850 vs Core i5-4250U comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-4250U performs better than the Celeron G1850. Despite this, the Celeron G1850 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Core i5-4250U has more threads. Our comparison shows that the Celeron G1850 has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-4250U. The Core i5-4250U outputs less heat than Celeron G1850 thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. For instance, the Celeron G1850 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
