Core i5-4210U vs Pentium Silver N5030 specs and performance
In our benchmarks, the Core i5-4210U beats the Pentium Silver N5030 in overall performance. Despite this, the Pentium Silver N5030 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Pentium Silver N5030 has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the Core i5-4210U that has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i5-4210U has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Pentium Silver N5030. The Pentium Silver N5030 outputs less heat than Core i5-4210U thanks to a 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 i5-4210U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
