Core i5-8265U vs Core i5-10300H comparison
In our benchmarks, the Core i5-10300H beats the Core i5-8265U in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-8265U in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i5-10300H has a significantly higher clock speed than the Core i5-8265U. Also, the Core i5-10300H has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-8265U CPU outputs less heat than a Core i5-10300H CPU because of its significantly 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 Core i5-10300H 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. Indeed, the Core i5-8265U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
