Core i3-10100T vs Xeon Gold 5122 comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Xeon Gold 5122 performs better than the Core i3-10100T. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i3-10100T in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the Xeon Gold 5122 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i3-10100T. Despite this, the Core i3-10100T has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i3-10100T CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon Gold 5122 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

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 Core i3-10100T has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
