Core i3-8109U vs Celeron N5095 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i3-8109U is faster than the Celeron N5095. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Celeron N5095 in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Celeron N5095 has significantly more cores than the Core i3-8109U. Indeed, the Celeron N5095 has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the Core i3-8109U. But they both have the same number of threads. The Celeron N5095 outputs less heat than Core i3-8109U 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. Indeed, the Core i3-8109U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
