Core i5-5300U vs Core i7-3667U benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-3667U is faster than the Core i5-5300U. Despite this, the Core i5-5300U 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 i5-5300U has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-3667U. Despite this, the Core i7-3667U has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-5300U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-3667U 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. Indeed, the Core i5-5300U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
