Core i5-8260U vs Core i7-11370H comparison
In our benchmarks, the Core i7-11370H beats the Core i5-8260U in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-8260U 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 i5-8260U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i7-11370H CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Core i5-8260U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
