Core i5-4670 vs Xeon E5-2630L v2 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-2630L v2 is faster than the Core i5-4670. Despite this, the Core i5-4670 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

With info from our database, we find that the Xeon E5-2630L v2 has significantly more cores with 6 cores whereas the Core i5-4670 has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i5-4670. Our comparison shows that the Core i5-4670 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E5-2630L v2. Also, the Core i5-4670 has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Xeon E5-2630L v2 outputs less heat than Core i5-4670 thanks to a slightly 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. For instance, the Core i5-4670 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
