Core i5-4200M vs Core i7-3667U specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-3667U is faster than the Core i5-4200M. Despite this, the Core i5-4200M has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the Core i5-4200M has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-3667U. Despite this, the Core i7-3667U has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Core i7-3667U outputs less heat than Core i5-4200M thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. Indeed, the Core i5-4200M has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
