Core i5-1155G7 vs Core i5-3450S benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-1155G7 performs better than the Core i5-3450S. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-3450S in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Core i5-1155G7 has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i5-3450S has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-1155G7. Despite this, the Core i5-1155G7 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-1155G7 CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-3450S 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 i5-1155G7 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
