Core i5-6300HQ vs Celeron G4900T comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-6300HQ performs better than the Celeron G4900T. Despite this, the Celeron G4900T has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i5-6300HQ has significantly more cores than the Celeron G4900T. Indeed, the Core i5-6300HQ has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the Celeron G4900T. It also has more threads than the Celeron G4900T. With our hardware info, we find that the Celeron G4900T has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-6300HQ. The Celeron G4900T outputs less heat than Core i5-6300HQ 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 i5-6300HQ has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
