Core i5-3550S vs Core i5-4670S benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-4670S performs better than the Core i5-3550S. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-3550S in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i5-4670S has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-3550S. Also, the Core i5-4670S 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. For instance, the Core i5-3550S has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
