Core i3-8350K vs Xeon E5-1620 v2 comparison
In our benchmarks, the Core i3-8350K beats the Xeon E5-1620 v2 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-1620 v2 in all gaming tests too.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores but the Xeon E5-1620 v2 has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i3-8350K has a slightly higher clock speed than the Xeon E5-1620 v2. A Core i3-8350K CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-1620 v2 CPU because of its much 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 i3-8350K has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
