Core i5-7200U vs Core i7-2675QM benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-2675QM is faster than the Core i5-7200U. Despite this, the Core i5-7200U has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Core i7-2675QM has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the Core i5-7200U that has 2 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i5-7200U. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i5-7200U has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-2675QM. Furthermore, both these CPUs have identical turbo speeds. A Core i5-7200U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-2675QM CPU because of its significantly 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. Indeed, the Core i5-7200U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
