Core i3-6157U vs Xeon E3-1265L benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i3-6157U is faster than the Xeon E3-1265L. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E3-1265L in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Xeon E3-1265L has significantly more cores than the Core i3-6157U. Indeed the Xeon E3-1265L has 2 compared to 4 found in the Core i3-6157U. It also has more threads than the Core i3-6157U. A Core i3-6157U CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E3-1265L CPU because of its significantly 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 i3-6157U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
