Core i3-4330T vs Core i5-4308U specs and performance

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i3-4330T performs better than the Core i5-4308U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-4308U in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i3-4330T has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-4308U. The Core i5-4308U outputs less heat than Core i3-4330T thanks to a slightly 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 i3-4330T has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
