Core i5-5300U vs Core i5-750 specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i5-750 is faster than the Core i5-5300U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-5300U in all gaming tests too.
In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i5-750 has significantly more cores than the Core i5-5300U. Indeed, the Core i5-750 has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the Core i5-5300U. But they both have the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the Core i5-750 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-5300U. Also, the Core i5-750 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-5300U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-750 CPU because of its 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 i5-5300U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
