Core i3-10100F vs Xeon E5-2676 v3 benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-2676 v3 is faster than the Core i3-10100F. Despite this, the Core i3-10100F has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2676 v3 has significantly more cores with 12 cores compared to the Core i3-10100F that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i3-10100F. A Core i3-10100F CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2676 v3 CPU because of its 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. Indeed, the Core i3-10100F has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
