Core i3-6100T vs Xeon E3-1230L v3 specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i3-6100T is faster than the Xeon E3-1230L v3. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E3-1230L v3 in all gaming tests too.

With info from our database, we find that the Xeon E3-1230L v3 has significantly more cores with 4 cores whereas the Core i3-6100T has 2 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i3-6100T. Our comparison shows that the Core i3-6100T has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E3-1230L v3. The Xeon E3-1230L v3 outputs less heat than Core i3-6100T thanks to a slightly 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 i3-6100T has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
