Core i5-8300H vs Xeon E5-2470 benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i5-8300H is faster than the Xeon E5-2470. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Xeon E5-2470 in all gaming tests too.
In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Xeon E5-2470 has significantly more cores than the Core i5-8300H. Indeed, the Xeon E5-2470 has 8 cores compared to 4 cores found in the Core i5-8300H. It also has more threads than the Core i5-8300H. In terms of clock speed, the Core i5-8300H and Xeon E5-2470 are identical in this regard. Despite this, the Core i5-8300H has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-8300H CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2470 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 i5-8300H has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
