Core i5-10210U vs Core i3-1115G4 benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Core i5-10210U beats the Core i3-1115G4 in overall performance. Despite this, the Core i3-1115G4 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

With info from our database, we find that the Core i5-10210U has significantly more cores with 4 cores whereas the Core i3-1115G4 has 2 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i3-1115G4. Our comparison shows that the Core i3-1115G4 has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-10210U. Despite this, the Core i5-10210U has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-10210U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i3-1115G4 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The info from our database shows that the Core i3-1115G4 has more L2 cache than the Core i5-10210U. However, both these chips have the same amount of L3 cache.

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 i5-10210U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
