Core i5-10210U vs Core i7-10510U specs and performance
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-10510U performs better than the Core i5-10210U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-10210U in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i7-10510U has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-10210U. Also, the Core i7-10510U has a slightly higher turbo speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The data shows that both these CPUs have same sized L2 caches. The Core i7-10510U also has slightly more L3 cache.
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. Indeed, the Core i5-10210U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
