Core i5-10505 vs Core i5-8400 benchmarks
In our benchmarks, the Core i5-10505 beats the Core i5-8400 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-8400 in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the Core i5-10505 has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i5-10505 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-8400. Also, the Core i5-10505 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.
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 i5-10505 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
