Core i5-6600 vs Xeon E5-2630L v2 benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-6600 performs better than the Xeon E5-2630L v2. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2630L v2 in all gaming tests too.
With info from our database, we find that the Xeon E5-2630L v2 has significantly more cores with 6 cores whereas the Core i5-6600 has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i5-6600. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i5-6600 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Xeon E5-2630L v2. Also, the Core i5-6600 has a slightly higher turbo speed. The Xeon E5-2630L v2 outputs less heat than Core i5-6600 thanks to a slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. For instance, the Core i5-6600 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
