Core i3-9320 vs Xeon E5-1680 v2 specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i3-9320 is faster than the Xeon E5-1680 v2. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-1680 v2 in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Xeon E5-1680 v2 has significantly more cores than the Core i3-9320. Indeed, the Xeon E5-1680 v2 has 8 cores compared to 4 cores found in the Core i3-9320. It also has more threads than the Core i3-9320. A Core i3-9320 CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-1680 v2 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. For instance, the Core i3-9320 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
