Core i5-1035G1 vs Core i7-5600U benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-1035G1 performs better than the Core i7-5600U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-5600U in all gaming tests too.
In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i5-1035G1 has significantly more cores than the Core i7-5600U. Indeed, the Core i5-1035G1 has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the Core i7-5600U. It also has more threads than the Core i7-5600U. Our comparison shows that the Core i7-5600U has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-1035G1. Despite this, the Core i5-1035G1 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 cache sizes of these CPUs are different. Indeed, the Core i5-1035G1 has significantly more L2 cache than the Core i7-5600U. The Core i5-1035G1 also has significantly more L3 cache.
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. Indeed, the Core i5-1035G1 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
