Core i5-7300HQ vs Xeon E5-1607 v4 comparison

In our benchmarks, the Xeon E5-1607 v4 beats the Core i5-7300HQ in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-7300HQ in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. A Core i5-7300HQ CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-1607 v4 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. For instance, the Core i5-7300HQ has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
