Core i3-7300T vs Core i7-2760QM comparison
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i3-7300T performs better than the Core i7-2760QM. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-2760QM in all gaming tests too.
In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i7-2760QM has significantly more cores than the Core i3-7300T. Indeed, the Core i7-2760QM has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the Core i3-7300T. It also has more threads than the Core i3-7300T. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i3-7300T has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-2760QM. A Core i3-7300T CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-2760QM CPU because of its 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 i3-7300T has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
