Core i5-10400H vs Xeon E5-2680 v2 benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Xeon E5-2680 v2 beats the Core i5-10400H in overall performance. Despite this, the Core i5-10400H has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Xeon E5-2680 v2 has significantly more cores than the Core i5-10400H. Indeed, the Xeon E5-2680 v2 has 10 cores compared to 4 cores found in the Core i5-10400H. It also has more threads than the Core i5-10400H. Our comparison shows that the Xeon E5-2680 v2 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-10400H. Despite this, the Core i5-10400H has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-10400H CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2680 v2 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

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 i5-10400H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
