Core i3-8100 vs Core i7-11850H benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-11850H is faster than the Core i3-8100. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i3-8100 in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-11850H has significantly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Core i3-8100 that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i3-8100. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i3-8100 has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-11850H. Despite this, the Core i7-11850H has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Core i7-11850H outputs less heat than Core i3-8100 thanks to a 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. For instance, the Core i3-8100 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
