Core i5-8400T vs Xeon E5-2683 v3 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Xeon E5-2683 v3 is faster than the Core i5-8400T. Despite this, the Core i5-8400T has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Xeon E5-2683 v3 has significantly more cores than the Core i5-8400T. Indeed the Xeon E5-2683 v3 has 6 compared to 14 found in the Core i5-8400T. It also has more threads than the Core i5-8400T. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Xeon E5-2683 v3 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-8400T. Despite this, the Core i5-8400T has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-8400T CPU outputs less heat than a Xeon E5-2683 v3 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. For instance, the Core i5-8400T has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
