Core i3-4160T vs Core i3-6100H benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Core i3-4160T beats the Core i3-6100H in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i3-6100H 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 Core i3-4160T has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i3-6100H. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. Indeed, the Core i3-4160T has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
