Core i5-7500T vs Xeon E3-1535M v6 comparison

In our benchmarks, the Xeon E3-1535M v6 beats the Core i5-7500T in overall performance. Despite this, the Core i5-7500T has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Xeon E3-1535M v6 has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Xeon E3-1535M v6 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-7500T. Also, the Xeon E3-1535M v6 has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-7500T CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E3-1535M v6 CPU because of its slightly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. When comparing cache sizes, these CPUs have an identical amount of L2 cache. The Xeon E3-1535M v6 also has slightly more L3 cache.

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 i5-7500T has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
