Core i5-4460T vs Core i7-3630QM benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-3630QM is faster than the Core i5-4460T. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-4460T in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Core i7-3630QM has more threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i7-3630QM has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-4460T. Also, the Core i7-3630QM has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-4460T CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-3630QM CPU because of its slightly 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. For instance, the Core i5-4460T has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
