Core i5-12500 vs Xeon Silver 4210R comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i5-12500 is faster than the Xeon Silver 4210R. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon Silver 4210R in all gaming tests too.
With info from our database, we find that the Xeon Silver 4210R has significantly more cores with 10 cores whereas the Core i5-12500 has 6 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i5-12500. A Core i5-12500 CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon Silver 4210R CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. 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 i5-12500 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
