Core i3-8130U vs Core i5-750 benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-750 performs better than the Core i3-8130U. Despite this, the Core i3-8130U has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i5-750 has significantly more cores than the Core i3-8130U. Indeed, the Core i5-750 has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the Core i3-8130U. But they both have the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the Core i5-750 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i3-8130U. Despite this, the Core i3-8130U has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i3-8130U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-750 CPU because of its significantly 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 i3-8130U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
