Core i3-6320 vs Xeon E5-2637 v2 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i3-6320 is faster than the Xeon E5-2637 v2. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2637 v2 in all gaming tests too.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2637 v2 has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the Core i3-6320 that has 2 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i3-6320. Our comparison shows that the Core i3-6320 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E5-2637 v2. A Core i3-6320 CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2637 v2 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 i3-6320 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
