Core i3-9100T vs Xeon E5-2680 specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i3-9100T is faster than the Xeon E5-2680. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2680 in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Xeon E5-2680 has significantly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Core i3-9100T that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i3-9100T. Our comparison shows that the Core i3-9100T has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E5-2680. Also, the Core i3-9100T has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i3-9100T CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2680 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. For instance, the Core i3-9100T has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
