Core i3-8300T vs Xeon E5-2689 benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Xeon E5-2689 performs better than the Core i3-8300T. Despite this, the Core i3-8300T has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2689 has significantly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Core i3-8300T that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i3-8300T. A Core i3-8300T CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2689 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. For instance, the Core i3-8300T has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
