Core i5-2310 vs Xeon X5470 comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Xeon X5470 performs better than the Core i5-2310. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-2310 in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Xeon X5470 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-2310. A Core i5-2310 CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon X5470 CPU because of its slightly 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. For instance, the Core i5-2310 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
