Core i3-5157U vs Core i5-3340M comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i5-3340M is faster than the Core i3-5157U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i3-5157U 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 i5-3340M has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i3-5157U. A Core i3-5157U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-3340M CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. 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 i3-5157U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
